--------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 1920979

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec Incident : 1920979
Symptom:
	On Solaris, Volume Agent core dumped due to a memory leak.
Defect Description:
	Volume Agent core dump has indicated a memory leak in 
	Volume Agent. The leak was due to not freeing up the 
	memory allocated using strdup(3C).
Resolution:
	The memory leak issue has been fixed by providing 
	much more efficient memory cleanup routine.

PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THE PATCH:
-------------------------------
This patch updates the following VCS package(s) 
	VRTSvcsag from 5.0MP3RP1 or higher to 5.0MP3RP3HF1

INSTALLING THE PATCH:
--------------------
The following steps should be run on all nodes in the VCS cluster:

Stopping VCS on the cluster node:
--------------------------------
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 VRTSvcsag is 5.0MP3RP1 or higher for 
   Solaris Sparc.

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

4. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may 
   close the configuration before stopping the cluster.
	# haconf -dump -makero

  From any node, execute the following command.
	# hastop -all
  or
	# hastop -all -force

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

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

5. Log as super user into the system where the point patch is to be
   installed.

6. Go to the directory $VCS_HOME/bin/Volume, where the default value 
   of $VCS_HOME is '/opt/VRTSvcs'.

7. Copy and save the existing VolumeAgent binary as VolumeAgent.orig 
   on all nodes of the cluster.
	# cp VolumeAgent VolumeAgent.orig

Installing the Patch:
--------------------
1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec.
 Change directory to the unzipped patch location. 
 Install the VRTSvcsag 5.0MP3RP3HF1 patch using the following command:
	       # patchadd [patch-id]
   Where [patch-id] is either of the following depending on 
   system configuration,
	For SunOS Release 5.8, [patch-id] is 143684-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.9, [patch-id] is 143685-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.10, [patch-id] is 143686-01.

2. Verify that the new patch has been installed:
	# showrev -p | grep [patch-id]
   You will find the following output on display with the patch 
   installed properly:
For Solaris Sparc 5.8:
	Patch: 143684-01 Obsoletes:  Requires: 139356-01 Incompatibles:  
	Packages: VRTSvcsag
For Solaris Sparc 5.9:

	Packages: VRTSvcsag


Re-starting VCS on the cluster node:
-----------------------------------
1. At this time, you can start the cluster services on all cluster nodes. 
   First start VCS on one node:
	# hastart

   On all the other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart after the first node
   goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

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


UNINSTALLING THE PATCH:
-----------------------
Follow the steps given below in all the systems:

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:
	# patchrm [patch-id]
   Where [patch-id] is either of the following depending on 
   system configuration,
	For SunOS Release 5.8, [patch-id] is 143684-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.9, [patch-id] is 143685-01.
	For SunOS Release 5.10, [patch-id] is 143686-01.
