7.Install and Uninstall Instructions for the VxFS patches: 

7.1. To install the VxFS 5.0-MP2RP5 patch:

a) To install this patch on a CVM cluster, install it one
 system at a time so that all the nodes are not brought down
b) The VxFS 5.0(GA) must be installed before applying these
c) To verify the VERITAS file system level, execute:
     # swlist -l product | egrep -i 'VRTSvxfs'
  VRTSvxfs        VERITAS File System  

Note: VRTSfsman is a corequisite for VRTSvxfs. So, VRTSfsman also
needs to be installed with VRTSvxfs.

    # swlist -l product | egrep -i 'VRTS'

  VRTSvxfs      Veritas File System
  VRTSfsman      Veritas File System Manuals
d) All prerequisite/corequisite patches must be installed. The Kernel patch 
  requires a system reboot for both installation and removal.
e) To install the patch, execute the following command:
# swinstall -x autoreboot=true -s <patch_directory> PHKL_42450 PHCO_41995

If the patch is not registered, you can register it
using the following command:

# swreg -l depot <patch_directory>

The <patch_directory> is the absolute path where the patch resides.

7.2. To remove the VxFS 5.0-MP2RP5 patch:

a) Execute the following command:

# swremove -x autoreboot=true PHKL_42450 PHCO_41995
