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

Patch ID: 5.1.133.100

* 3009882 (Tracking ID: 3002932)

SYMPTOM:
vxfen module fails to stop when you manually restart a node by issuing 
the shutdown -r now command

DESCRIPTION:
You cannot stop the vxfen module by restarting the node if any of 
its client processes, such as Veritas Cluster Server and so on, are running. 
Typically, a node reboot stops all the client processes of vxfen and 
subsequently stops the vxfen module. For some reason if the node restart does 
not stop the client processes, then the attempt to stop vxfen module also fails 
because client processes are still running.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has implemented a retry logic such that after a node 
restart happens the vxfen module periodically tries to   stop itself for a 
specific number of times. The retry  logic gives client processes enough time 
to stop.
