4. Preparing to install the hot fix

 Before you install this hot fix,  perform these steps:

 1. Log in to the Enterprise Reporter console.

 2. In the Enterprise Reporter console,  click:
  Data Management > Data Rollup Configuration > Status

 4. If Oracle is on a remote system,  check that the tnsnames.ora file
    on the Enterprise Reporter server contains entries for the Oracle
    server. These entries allow the Enterprise Reporter server to reach
    the Oracle server using the tnsping utility. If entries for the
    Oracle server are not present in the tnsnames.ora file,  add them.

   b. Extract the tarball. 
      Enter the following command:

      tar -xvf VRTSccer-Framework-Files.tar

Additional Notes:

 This hot fix includes the following new features and enhancements:

* Rollup support
  - Support for rolling up data from CommandCentral 5.1.1 and 5.1.2
    management servers
  - The ability to roll up Celerra devices
  - The ability to roll up file-system-to-LUN and volume-to-LUN
  - "NetApp" references in the Console/Reports/metamodel have been
    changed to "NAS" because Enterprise Reporter 5.1 supports both
    Celerra and Netapp.

* New packages in metamodel
  - NAS Usage Analysis
    This package contains the information for NAS volumes,  NAS file
    systems,  and Qtrees and their capacities. Use this package to
    create reports about NAS usage data for chargeback purposes.
  - Chargeback Analysis
    This package contains file-system-to-LUN and volume-to-LUN
    It also contains the file system and volume capacities. Use this
    package to create reports for chargeback based on file system and
    volume information.

* New reports
  - A new NAS Chargeback Report
    This report is located under Sample Reports > Storage Allocation
    and Chargeback. It shows the chargeback capacities for NAS volumes
    and NAS file systems. It shows NAS volumes for NetApp arrays and
    NAS file systems for Celerra arrays.

  - A new File System and Volume Consumption Report
    This report is located under Sample Reports > Utilization > Host. 

    This report shows the file system consumption for all file systems
    and the volume consumption for those volumes that do not have file
    systems on them. It also shows the underlying arrays,  models,  and

* New name for the NAS Chargeback Report
  The new name of this report is "NetApp Chargeback Report". 

  This report is located under Sample Reports > Storage Allocation.

* Adjusted allocated capacity is added to the Host Storage Allocation

  This capacity provides the distributed capacity when the lun is
  shared across multiple hosts.
