SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH

Patch ID: 6.0.300.100
* 3106494 (3106493) LLT port open fails with the error "device or resource busy".


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

Patch ID: 6.0.300.100

* 3106494 (Tracking ID: 3106493)

SYMPTOM:
LLT port open fails with the error "device or resource busy".

DESCRIPTION:
During LLT port close, if some protocol packets get lost in the network,
LLT retransmits those packets to take the port close state machine to
completion.  Due to a bug in LLT, sometimes some lost protocol packets are
not retransmitted.  Thus the close state machine gets stuck.  As a result, the
next port open operation fails with the error "device or resource busy".

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has modified the LLT code to retransmit protocol packets that were
lost in the network.

The VRTSllt-6.0.300.100 patch may be installed either manually (see below)

                is the directory where you unpacked this hotfix
      <node1>, <node2>, ...
