The following steps should be run on all nodes in the VCS cluster:

Stopping VCS on the cluster node:
--------------------------------
To stop the cluster on all nodes follow the given steps:
1. Ensure that "/opt/VRTS/bin" directory is included in your PATH
   environment variable so you can execute all the VCS commands. Refer
   to "Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide" for more information.

2. Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 4.1MP4 or later for Linux.

3. Freeze all the service groups persistently:
	# haconf -makerw
	# hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent
	# haconf -dump -makero

3. From any one node, execute the following command to stop the cluster:
	# hastop -all -force

4. Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes by running 
   the hasys command:
	# hasys -state

5. On all nodes, make sure that both had and hashadow processes 
   are stopped.

6. Stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes:
	# CmdServer -stop

Installing the Patch:
--------------------
1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec.
   Change directory to the unzipped patch location. 
   Install the VRTSvcs 4.1.40.31 patch using the following command:
	# rpm -Uvh  VRTSvcs-4.1.40.31-MP4RP3_HF1_SLES10.i586.rpm

2. Verify that the new patch has been installed:
	# rpm -q VRTSvcs
   You will find the following output on display with the patch 
   installed properly:
	VRTSvcs-4.1.40.31-MP4RP3_HF1_SLES10

Re-starting VCS on the cluster node:
-----------------------------------
At this time, you can start cluster services on the cluster nodes.
1. On one node, please verify that VCS configuration is valid.
	# hacf -verify /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/

2. If the configuration is valid, start VCS:
	# hastart
   On all other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart(1m) once 
   the first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

3. Unfreeze all the groups:
	# haconf -makerw
	# hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
	# haconf -dump -makero


UNINSTALLING THE PATCH:
-----------------------
Removal of the patch will result in removing whole package 
from the system/node. To go back to a previous installed version 
of the package, you may need to re-install the package again.
Following steps need to be run on all the VCS cluster node:

Steps to remove the Patch from a cluster node:
---------------------------------------------
1. Follow the steps provided under "Stopping VCS on the cluster node"
   section above, to stop VCS on the node.

2. Remove the patch by the following command:
	# rpm -e VRTSvcs

3. Verify that the patch has been removed from the system:
	# rpm -qa | grep VRTSvcs

   upgrade to VCS 4.1MP4RP3 or higher as available.
