Errors/Problems fixed
When you install Symantec ApplicationHA 6.0 guest components on Linux guests by using the vSphere client menu, if you specify the embedded evaluation license key, the guest component installation fails.  

The installation of guest components on Linux hosts fails due to an error in the registration of the embedded evaluation license key.

Etrack Incidents: 2676052

Symantec has issued a patch that you can install on the ApplicationHA Console host. The patch installs a modified evaluation license key to work around the registration issue. 

Fixes applied for the product
Symantec ApplicationHA 6.0

Install/Uninstall instructions
Download the patch zip file to a temporary location on your system.
The zip file contains the following two files:
*  ApplicationHA60_license_patch.bat

To apply the patch
1. Extract the patch files from the zip file.
2. From the command prompt, navigate to the directory where you extracted the patch files.
3. Run the ApplicationHA60_license_patch.bat script.
   The script is designed to patch backend processes when you install ApplicationHA guest components from the vSphere client menu.
   When you run the script, the output reports the success of the patch application for each supported guest operating system.

1. You can safely run the patch script multiple times on the ApplicationHA Console host.
2. Every time you use the CopyInstaller.bat file to copy the installer 
program for a Linux operating system to the ApplicationHA Console host, 
you must thereafter re-apply the patch on the ApplicationHA Console host.
