A - Overview of the Hotfix
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack - 1965998
----------------
SYMPTOM:     vxsvc dumps core on startup on 5.0MP3 systems. 

DESCRIPTION: On systems where more than 1000 virtual IPs are configured, ioctl 
             call fails and vxsvc dumps core on startup.

RESOLUTION:  Changed the code to use gethostname instead of ioctl calls, since 
             we now use loopback address for communication and there is no 
             need to make ioctl calls.


Packages applied: VRTSobc33

Build Version: 3.3.226.0

Etrack - 1914596
----------------
SYMPTOM:     vxsvc dumps core on startup

DESCRIPTION: If the alertlog.db or tasklog.db file are corrupt due to some 
             reason, vxsvc process dumps core on startup.

RESOLUTION:  During vxsvc startup, vxsvc process verifies that both the db log 
             files are not corrupt. If they are, it deletes them and creates new ones.
