Additional Notes: 
Storage Agent service need to be stopped and re-started for new 
settings to effect.  Please note that stopping the Storage Agent 
(vxvm) service will cause the 'Volume Manager Disk Group' (VMDg) 
resources in a cluster environment (MSCS or VCS) to fault. If this 
hotfix is being applied to a server in an cluster, make sure any 
cluster groups containing a VMDg resource are taken offline or 
moved to another node in the cluster before proceeding.
The batch program within the hotfix imports new track alignment 
settings for "OPEN-V" series arrays into Windows registry.  
Subsequently, a SFW 'rescan' command is issued to load the settings 
into SFW memory.  The batch program automatically chooses processor 
specific registrty file (i.e. 32_bit.reg for x86 and 64_bit.reg for 
amd64/ia64) during the import registry operation.  The output of the 
program will display the settings.
