SYMPTOM:
The HTC agent fails to monitor the configured resource on Linux and HPUX
platforms.

DESCRIPTION:
The monitor entry point refers to a module "HADRSLA" which is not yet
available on Linux and HPUX platforms. As a result, the monitor entry point fails
on these platforms.

RESOLUTION:
Removed references to the non-existent module HADRSLA on Linux and
HPUX platforms.

   variable so you can execute all the VCS commands. For more information,

2. Make sure that the HTC Service Group is offline on this system.
3. Install the VRTSvcstc patch using the following command:
    #  swinstall -s 'pwd' VRTSvcstc
4. Verify that the new patch is installed:
