II. UPGRADE PROCEDURE:
----------------------
After you have installed or synchronized a new Symantec FileStore patch into your cluster, the list of available commands may change. Please login again to the CLI to access the updated features. 

IMPORTANT: There is a downtime for the services during an upgrade. The actual downtime will be a little longer than it takes to reboot the system. To avoid data loss, Symantec recommends that customers stop I/O processing completely during a patch upgrade.  

After you apply this patch, you cannot uninstall it. The 5.6RP1P4HF1 patch can only be installed on 5.6 or 5.6 P1 or 5.6 P2 or 5.6 P3 or 5.6 RP1 or 5.6 RP1 P1 or 5.6 RP1 P2 or 5.6 RP1 P3 or 5.6 RP1 P4.

		b.	If job is in running state pause the job from source console.
		c.	Goto step 3
 
	2)	If above command return non zero, then
		a.	If job is in running state pause the job from soruce console.
		b.	Umount checkpoint first, cfsumount /vx/<destination fs checkpoint>  
		c.	Fsclusadm -v showprimary <destination fs>
		d.	Except filesystem primary node, run "hagrp offline <vrts_destination fs group> -sys <non primary node(s)>"
		e.	Once you ran "hagrp -offline" on non primary nodes. Run "vxumount -f -o mntunlock=VCS <destination fs>" on primary node. 
		
	3)	upgrade the cluster. After upgrade online filesystems which are offline in 2(b) and 2(d) steps. To do this run following commands after upgrade.
		a) Run this command on all nodes "hagrp -online <vrts_destination fs group> -sys <nodename>"

IV. KNOWN ISSUES:
-----------------
Etrack incident: 2737179

SYMPTOM: manual scan cannot detect the virus file without file extension (e.g.11) when the "File excluded extension list" setting is empty. 

Description: This issue only happens on manual scan with the "File excluded extension list" setting is empty, this issue has been fixed in Auto-Protect scan, then we suggest you enable Auto-Protect to avoid this risk. If you do not want enable Auto-Protect since Auto-Protect scan brings some CPU consumption, 
you can use the workaround as below.

Resolution: the workaround is to keep at least one file extension in the "File excluded extension list" setting. you can set one unusual file extension to avoid this issue, for example "dummyextension", in fact, there should not be any file with such file extension.
