Symantec FileStore provides a scalable clustered storage solution. This document provides release information for the patch.

After you have installed or synchronized a new SFS patch into your cluster, the list of available commands may change. Please login again to the CLI to access the updated features. Because this is a phased upgrade process, please bring down the services manually, then start with the patch installation. After you apply this patch, you cannot uninstall it. Please take notice that the 5.6 P2 patch can only be installed on 5.6 or 5.6 P1.

To install the patch:
1. Login as master:
   su - master
2. Start the patch install:
   upgrade patch install <URL>

IMPORTANT: Full upgrade instructions are included in the FileStore 5.6 Release Notes. IMPORTANT: Please note the following revision:

When you upgrade:

* Symantec recommends that you remove I/O fencing before upgrading any cluster node or exporting your current configuration. Use the Storage> fencing off command first followed by the Storage> fencing destroy command to remove I/O fencing. This step is not required, but it is suggested for a clean upgrade.

V. Known Issues:

Etrack Incident: 2196782

Symptom: Unable to use the FileStore Management Console (GUI) to install a device driver from the FileStore Driver Update Disk (DUD).

Description: When you use the Settings > Upgrade feature in the FileStore Management Console to unstall a DUD device driver, the upgrade fails.

Workaround: Use the FileStore Upgrade> patch install and the Upgrade> patch duduninstall CLI commands to install and uninstall device drivers.  

Etrack Incident: 2281651

Symptom: Cannot detatch pools that contain an NLM internal file system.

Description: In some cases, when you run the Storage> pool detachset command, the following error message displays: "SFS Storage ERROR V-288-2265 One of the pools you want to detach contains Filestore internal filesystem (_nlm_). Cannot detach pool containing this special file system." 

NLM is a FileStore internal file system which the cluster uses for storing NFS lock manager (NLM) data and the replication database. This cluster-wide file system is created transparently when the first file system is created and is deleted when the last file system is deleted. 

Workround: There is no workaround for this issue. It will be fixed in a future release. To avoid this issue, create the pool to be detached after the NLM file system has been created.
