I. OVERVIEW:
------------
Symantec FileStore provides a scalable clustered storage solution. This document provides release information for the patch.

Notes:
1. Patch upgrade will cause service failover from one node to another which will take about 15 seconds. This will not impact NFS client mounts and replication jobs, but CIFS client mounts will need to connect again, and backup jobs need to be resumed as well after an upgrade. 
2. For the above reason, it is recommended to stop CIFS, backup, and EV I/O loads during an upgrade.  
3. The 5.7 MP1 patch can only be applied to the 5.7, 5.7P1, 5.7P2, or 5.7P3 release.  
4. Patch upgrade cannot be rollbacked once applied.
5. Don"t proceed upgrade when there are heavy I/O ongoing

II. UPGRADE PROCEDURE:
----------------------
To install the patch:
1. Extact sfs-sles11_x86_64-5.7MP1-patches.tar.gz.
2. Copy SFSFS-patch-5.7MP1_2012_08_30.tar.gz to the FileStore master node at (/home/support/patches/) using the support login.
3. If fencing is enabled, turn off and remove I/O fencing before the upgrade:
filestore> storage> fencing off
filestore> storage> fencing destroy

4. Install the FileStore patch using the master login (CLISH):

filestore>upgrade patch install scp://support@localhost:/home/support/patches/SFSFS-patch-5.7MP1_2012_08_30.tar.gz

The patch is installed on the slave nodes first followed by a system reboot. The master node is installed last followed 
by a system reboot.

5. If fencing was enabled, enable it again.

6. Monitor and check the status of the FileStore cluster: 

To check that the installation is complete, login to the master node again (switch to another node), and check that all the nodes are in the RUNNING state:

filestore> cluster show
------------       -----      -----------   -------- --------   -------- --------
filestore_01       RUNNING          0.98       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00 
filestore_02       RUNNING          0.97       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00
