VERITAS Storage Foundation Basic 4.1 Maintenance Pack 3 Linux

Latest VERITAS Product Information
Before you install any product,  read the following VERITAS Technical Support TechNote for information on the latest supported kernels,  service pack and errata updates,  patches,  and software issues regarding this release:
http://support.veritas.com/docs/277033
Known Issues
When upgrading to 4.1 MP3 on Intel IA 64 systems,  the product installer may display warning messages about RPM locations similar to the following:
CPI WARNING V-9-0-0 VRTSvcsor rpm is not located in
storage_foundation_cluster_file_system/rpms/
CPI WARNING V-9-0-0 VRTSgms rpm is not located in
storage_foundation_cluster_file_system/rpms/
CPI WARNING V-9-0-0 VRTSodm-common rpm is not located
in storage_foundation_cluster_file_system/rpms/
You can safely ignore these messages.

Storage Foundation Basic
If you have the Storage Foundation Basic 4.1 release installed,  you can update it using the same procedure as any Storage Foundation offering. Select the appropriate distribution on the Maintenance Pack disc and follow the instructions in the file sf_notes.pdf that is located in the storage_foundation directory:
distribution/storage_foundation/release_notes
You must purchase a support agreement to obtain maintenance software for Storage Foundation Basic.

4.1 Maintenance Pack 3 Supported Linux Distributions
The following two tables list VERITAS products and the Linux distributions,  chip architectures,  and kernels on which they operate.

Storage Foundation for
Oracle RAC (SFRAC)
Note VERITAS products will operate on subsequent kernel and patch releases provided the operating systems maintain kernel ABI (application binary interface) compatibility. Largesmp kernel support was introduced in RHEL 4 Update 3.
For the latest SFRAC support for Oracle releases,  see the 4.1 MP3 Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC Release Notes.

Storage Foundation for DB2

VERITAS Cluster Server

Storage Foundation Cluster File System (SFCFS)

Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC (SFRAC)
Note SFCFS and SFRAC are supported in 32-bit mode on x86 and x86_64 (EM64T and AMD Opteron) architectures on RHEL 4 only. This is to support SFCFS/SFRAC 4.0 customers running RHEL 3 who are upgrading to RHEL 4 and SFCFS/SFRAC 4.1.
Because there is limited kernel virtual address space on 32-bit kernels,  VERITAS strongly recommends running SFCFS and SFRAC on the hugemem kernel when operating in 32-bit mode. See the 4.1 MP3 Storage Foundation Cluster File System Release Notes for more information.
Maintenance Pack 3 is supported on SUSE SP1 (.139,  .145 and later),  SUSE SP2 (.201 minimum requirement),  and SUSE SP3 (.241 and later).

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 4.1 Maintenance Pack 3 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 a?¡°configure option.
See the individual product release notes for information on how to restart processes,  or how to uninstall Maintenance Pack 3 and return to the 4.1 product level.

Mounting a 4.1 Maintenance Pack 3 Software Disc
To load the software from a CD-ROM drive:
1. Log in as superuser.
2. Insert a VERITAS software disc into a drive that is connected to your system.
3. After you insert the disc,  enter: # mount -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
4. Change to the appropriate directory and product subdirectory to view the product release notes (see a??Installing Updatesa?? on page 9).

Installing Updates
After you mount the software disc,  change to the directory of the product you want to upgrade and read the product release notes for installation information.
You cannot roll back Maintenance Pack 3 to the previously installed release. To restore release 4.1 on your system,  you must completely remove Maintenance Pack 3,  then reinstall VERITAS 4.1.
To install a product,  you must run the product installation script instead of the generic installer script. For example,  if you are installing Storage Foundation software,  after mounting the 4.1 VERITAS software disc,  go to the distribution/storage_foundation directory and type:
# ./installsf -installonly [-usersh]
The -installonly option is required to perform the installation without configuring the software.
Read the product release notes of the product you want to install for more information.
