Documentation Issues
The Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC Installation and Configuration Guide
was updated for this release. The new version is located on the
Maintenance Pack 1 software disc at:

Package Installation Script
You install upgrade packages by running the installmp installation
script from the command line. The installmp script is at the top level
of the 4.0 Maintenance Pack 1 disc. The installmp script checks for any
installed VERITAS package and replaces it with the appropriate patch
RPM. There is no uninstallation script.
All VERITAS product processes are stopped after running installmp.
To ensure that processes restart correctly, a manual restart or system
reboot is required. If you want to configure a product, run the product
installation scripts from the /opt/VRTS/install directory using the
–configure option.
See the individual product release notes for information on how to
restart processes or how to uninstall Maintenance Pack 1 and return to
the 4.0 product level.

1. Log in as superuser.
