===============================
Install/Uninstall Instructions:
===============================
=======================
Installation Procedure:
=======================

If the currently installed VRTSvxvm is below 5.1.100.0 level,  
upgrade VRTSvxvm to 5.1.100.0 level before installing this patch.

AIX maintenance levels and APARs can be downloaded from the
IBM web site:

        http://techsupport.services.ibm.com 


1. Since the patch process will configure the new kernel extensions,
ensure that no VxVM volumes are in use or open or mounted before
starting the installation procedure

2. Check whether root support or DMP native support is enabled. If it is enabled, it will be retained after patch upgrade.

# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support
If the current value is "on", DMP native support is enabled on this machine.

3.
	a. Before applying this VxVM 5.1 SP1P1 patch, stop the VEA Server's vxsvc process:
	# /opt/VRTSob/bin/vxsvcctrl stop

	b. To apply this hotfix patch, use following command:
	# installp -ag -d ./VRTSvxvm.bff VRTSvxvm

	c. To apply and commit this patch, use following command:
	# installp -acg -d ./VRTSvxvm.bff VRTSvxvm
	NOTE: Please refer installp(1M) man page for clear understanding on APPLY & COMMIT state of the package/patch.

	d. Reboot the system to complete the patch upgrade.
	# reboot

	e. Confirm that the point patch is installed:
	# lslpp -hac VRTSvxvm | tail -1
	/etc/objrepos:VRTSvxvm:5.1.100.100::APPLY:COMPLETE:09/23/10:22;55;45

	f. if root support or dmp native support is enabled in step 2, verify whether it is retained after completing the patch upgrade
	# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support

==========================
De-installation Procedure:
==========================

1. Check whether root support or DMP native support is enabled or not:

	# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support
If the current value is "on", DMP native support is enabled on this machine.
If disabled(current value is off): goto step 3.
If enabled: goto step 2.

2. If root support or DMP native support is enabled:

	a. It is essential to disable DMP native support. Run the following command to disable DMP native support:
	# vxdmpadm settune dmp_native_support=off

	b. Reboot the system
	# reboot

	c. Before backing out patch, stop the VEA server's vxsvc process:
	# /opt/VRTSob/bin/vxsvcctrl stop

   To reject the patch if it is "APPLIED state, use the following command and re-enable DMP support"
	# installp -r VRTSvxvm 5.1.100.100

	a. Start vxconfigd daemon
	#/usr/sbin/vxconfigd -x syslog

	b. Enable DMP native support
	# vxdmpadm settune dmp_native_support=on

	c. Reboot the system.
	# reboot

	d. Verify DMP native support is enabled:
	# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support


   To remove the patch if it is "COMMITED" state, use the following command and re-enable DMP support

	# installp -ug VRTSvxvm

	a. Install previous VxVM package version. Install base VxVM package followed by SP1 patch and Point patch

	b. Remove install-db file
	# rm /etc/vx/reconfig.d/state.d/install-db

	c. Start vxconfigd daemon
	# vxiod set 10
	# vxconfigd -m disable
	# vxdctl init
	# vxdctl enable

	d. Enable DMP native support
	# vxdmpadm settune dmp_native_support=on

	e. Reboot the system.
	# reboot

	f. Verify DMP native support has been enabled:
	# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support

3. If root support or DMP native support is not enabled

	a. Before back out patch, kill the VEA Server's vxsvc process:
	# /opt/VRTSob/bin/vxsvcctrl stop

   To reject the patch if it is "APPLIED state, use the following command

	# installp -r VRTSvxvm 5.1.100.100
	Start vxconfigd daemon
	#/usr/sbin/vxconfigd -x syslog

   To remove the patch if it is "COMMITED" state, use the following command

	# installp -ug VRTSvxvm
	a. Reboot the system
	# reboot

	b. Install previous VxVM package version. Install base VxVM package followed by SP1 patch and Point patch

	c. Remove install-db file
	# rm /etc/vx/reconfig.d/state.d/install-db

	d. Start vxconfigd daemon
	# vxiod set 10
	# vxconfigd -m disable
	# vxdctl init
	# vxdctl enable
