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

Patch ID: 146902-01

* 2409707 (Tracking ID: 2444677)

SYMPTOM:
In a VCS 5.0 MP3 RP5 cluster on Solaris, if you set the operating system locale 
to Japanese (variable LANG = ja), then the Veritas fencing module (VxFEN) fails 
to start.

DESCRIPTION:
On Solaris, when VxFEN starts up, it waits for the vxvm-recover service to come 
online. To check the state of vxvm-recover, VxFEN uses the 'svcs' command. 
If you have set the operating system locale to Japanese, the output of 
the 'svcs' command includes Japanese characters. VxFEN is unable to  parse the 
output and therefore fails to start.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has modified the VxFEN code to ensure that variable LANG is set to C 
for the 'svcs' command.
