SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: 6.0.300.100
* 3088925 (3088915) After upgrade from VCS 6.0.1 to 6.0.3, Oracle resource is unable to come online in the container. Monitor fails to detect the processes.


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

Patch ID: 6.0.300.100

* 3088925 (Tracking ID: 3088915)

SYMPTOM:
Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) reports the status of Oracle resources configured 
inside the container (Solaris local zone or AIX WPAR) as OFFLINE even when 
Oracle processes are running inside the container. Following message logged 
in /var/VRTSvcs/log/Oracle_A.log file:

VCS DBG_4 V-16-50-0 Oracle:resource_name:monitor:Container id [0] of input 
process [ora_smon_SID] did not match with container id [1] of system process 
[ora_smon_SID]

DESCRIPTION:
VCS Oracle agent uses common process library (ProcLib) for process level 
monitoring. In VCS 6.0.3 release, a check was introduced in ProcLib to match 
the container ID of the input process with the container ID of the processes 
running in the system.
The Oracle agent did not send the container ID of the container in which the 
resource is configured to the ProcLib for exact match which caused this issue.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has updated the Oracle agent to send the container ID information to 
the ProcLib for exact process match. With this fix, Oracle agent can correctly 
match the Oracle processes running inside the container.



INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
Prerequisite:
    The target system(s) should have VRTSvcsea 6.0.300.000-GA installed 
    before the installation of this patch.

The VRTSvcsea-6.0.300.100 patch may be installed either manually (see below)
or using the included installer.

 *  To apply the patch using the installer, enter the commands 
        # cd <hotfix_directory>  && ./installVCSEA603P1  [ <node1> <node2>... ]
    
    where 
      <hotfix_directory>
                is the directory where you unpacked this hotfix
      <node1>, <node2>, ...
                are the nodes to be patched.  If none are specified, you
                will be prompted to enter them interactively.  All nodes
                must belong to a single cluster.
    
    For information about installer options, run  './installVCSEA603P1 -help'.
    

 *  To apply the patch manually, perform the steps listed below on each node 
    in the VCS cluster.

 1. Save the VCS configuration:
        # haconf -dump 

 2. Stop VCS:
        # hastop -local -force 

 3. Install the patch by issuing the following commands:
   a. Change to the appropriate directory where patch is present.

   b. Apply patch as:
        # installp -a -d VRTSvcsea.bff VRTSvcsea 

 4. To verify that the patch was successfully applied, compare the output 
    from the following command with the sample output below:
        # lslpp -l VRTSvcsea

 5. [OPTIONAL] Commit the patch
    _Committing_ an update (patch) makes it permanent; it cannot be removed 
    so long as the base level fileset remains installed.  You may wish to 
    defer this step until you have verified that your newly-patched system is 
    operating as expected.

    To commit the patch, execute the command listed below:
        # installp -c VRTSvcsea 

    To verify that the fileset update was committed, compare the output 
    from the following command with the sample output below:
        # lslpp -l VRTSvcsea
