   * Veritas Storage Foundation 3.5
   * Veritas Storage Foundation High Availability 3.5
   * Veritas Storage Foundation for Oracle 3.5

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

Patch ID: PHKL_43091

* 2768673 (Tracking ID: 2272072)

SYMPTOM:
GAB panics the box because VCS engine "had" did not respond, the lbolt
wraps around.

DESCRIPTION:
The lbolt wraps around after 498 days machine uptime. In VxFS, we
flush VxFS meta data buffers based on their age. The age calculation happens
taking lbolt in account.

Due to lbolt wrapping the buffers were not flushed. So, a lot of metadata IO's
stopped and hence, the panic.

RESOLUTION:
In the function for handling flushing of dirty buffers, also handle 
the condition if lbolt has wrapped. If it has then assign current lbolt time
to the last update time of dirtylist.


INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
1. To install the VxFS 3.5-MP4RP7 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
 simultaneously.

b) The VxFS 3.5(GA) must be installed before applying these
  patches.

c) To verify the VERITAS file system level, execute:

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

  VRTSvxfs   3.5-ga15       VERITAS File System with CFS Support

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

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_43091

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.


REMOVING THE PATCH
------------------
2. To remove the VxFS PHKL_43091  patches:

a) Execute the following command:

# swremove -x autoreboot=true  PHKL_43091


SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
