Veritas Cluster Server Agents 5.0 MP3 RP4 P-patch 1


PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THE PATCH

   * Veritas Storage Foundation for DB2 5.0 MP3 RP4


OPERATING SYSTEMS SUPPORTED BY THE PATCH

INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
----------------------------
This patch fixes the following Symantec incidents:

   * 2116529                                                            

     SYMPTOM: A DB2 resource on a Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) node     
     generates excessive log messages. Consequently, the engine log file 
     engine_A.log is flooded with log messages.                         

     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 and it fails to return the          
     appropriate exit status. As a result, for every monitor cycle, an  
     error is logged in the engine log and the inappropriate exit status
     returned by "kill -0" causes the monitor function to miss detection
     of a failed DB2 Connect instance.                                  

     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.
