----------------------------
This patch fixes the following Symantec incidents:

Patch ID: 5.1.11.1

* 3047109 (Tracking ID: 3064521)

SYMPTOM:
The agent for WebSphere cannot locate the versionInfo.sh script when performing the monitor function on an offline node.

DESCRIPTION:
When the agent for WebSphere performs the monitor function on an offline node, the agent runs the versionInfo.sh script to determine the version of the WebSphere Application Server software. However, if this script resides on a shared disk, the agent cannot locate the script on the offline node, and consequently, displays an error message.

RESOLUTION:
When the agent for WebSphere performs the monitor function on an offline node, the agent now verifies that the versionInfo.sh script exists and only then runs the script.


INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
As root user do the following steps on all the client nodes of the cluster where websphere is installed:
1. Offline all the resources of type WebSphere. Use the following command to list all resources of type WebSphere.
   # hares -list Type=WebSphere
2. Stop the WebSphere agent on all nodes of the cluster.
   # haagent -stop WebSphere -force -sys <system> 
3. Ensure that the agent operations are stopped.
   # ps -ef | grep WebSphere
4. Uninstall the agent package.
