Patch Installation Instructions:
--------------------------------

o Before-the-upgrade :-
  (a) Stop I/Os to all the VxVM volumes.
  (b) Umount any filesystems with VxVM volumes.
  (c) Stop applications using any VxVM volumes.

o   Before manually upgrading VxVM to 5.0MP4HF1, stop the vxpal process by
      stopping 'vxpal.StorageAgent':
            /etc/init.d/vxpal.StorageAgent stop

o   Upgrade 5.0MP4 VxVM packages to 5.0MP4HF1 using "rpm -Uvh"

o   After completion of upgrade the vxpal process can be restarted as:
            /etc/init.d/vxpal.StorageAgent start

o   Note: In some cases VRTSvxvm-platform package upgrade may fail to
          unload a VxVM module. This will be reported with a message similar to
          "FATAL: Module vxdmp is in use". If this happens, it is recommended that
          the system be rebooted to unload the old modules and load the new ones.

o Select the appropriate RPMs for your system, and upgrade to the new patch.
