FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE PATCH: 
--------------------------------------------
Etrack Incidents: 2117381

SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec incident : 2117381

Symptom:
	A DB2 resource on a VCS node generates excessive log messages. 
	Consequently, the engine log file engine_A.log is flooded with log messages.
      
Defect description:
	For a DB2 resource on a VCS node, the monitor entry function reads a PID file located at 
	db2inst1/sqllib/ctrl. In the PID file, if there is an empty line below the PID, then 
	the "kill -0" command generates an error. As a result, for every monitor cycle, an error 
	is logged in the engine log.
                
Resolution:
	Symantec has modified the DB2 agent so that it does not issue the kill command for empty lines 
	in the PID file. The agent now parses the PID file, validates the PID, and 

then issues the kill 
	command, if applicable. This modification prevents excessive log messages in the engine log file engine_A.log.
