* 3302205 (3302091) [Pri-1][Globalfoundries Singapore Pte. Ltd][Could not up vcs after reboot first node in phase upgrade on solaris 11 sparc]


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

Patch ID: 6.0.300.100

* 3302205 (Tracking ID: 3302091)

SYMPTOM:
VCS/SFRAC could not come up after reboot on Solaris 11.

DESCRIPTION:
The fencing module could not come up as it's add_drv command from
fencing init script failed. The command failed due to another module's add_drv
was running at very same time. This can happen to any VCS/SFRAC kernel module as
these modules call add_drv in respective init scripts. This will cause race of
different add_drv commands for different module.

RESOLUTION:
To resolve this, Two new SMF services are created for simulating
postinstall and preremove operations. The add_drv command was moved out of start
script and moved in to postinstall of the module. The rem_drv was moved from
stop script to preremove operation. These changes made for the VRTSllt, VRTSgab,
VRTSvxfen and VRTSdbac packages.

INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
Before installing VRTSvxfen-6.0.300.100 patch on a Solaris 11 host, you can optionally create a boot environment (BE) and install VRTSvxfen-6.0.300.100 on the new BE.  Doing this makes it easier to revert to the current version of VRTSvxfen if required in future.

To create a new boot environment, perform steps 1-4 below on each node.

1. Identify the active boot environment (BE) by looking at the NR tag:
        # beadm list

2. Create a new boot environment:
        # beadm create <new_BE_name> 

    where <new_BE_name>  is any valid name not listed in step 1.
    Example:
        # beadm create sfha_vxfen

3. Activate the newly-created boot environment:
        # beadm activate <new_BE_name> 

4. Reboot the node so that the new boot environment is active:
        # reboot

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

1. Save the configuration:
        # haconf -dump

2. Stop VCS, vxfen:
        # hastop -local -force
        # svcadm disable -s vxfen
    (Stop all the dependent services of vxfen before stopping vxfen)

3. Apply the vxfen patch by issuing the following commands:

   a. Set the publisher
        # pkg set-publisher -p <patch_file_pathname>     Symantec
      e.g:
        # pkg set-publisher -p /hotfix_dir/patches/VRTSvxfen.p5p  Symantec

   b. Install the package
        # pkg install --accept --no-backup-be VRTSvxfen

4. Verify that the new patch is installed.  The output of the following command should display the version for VRTSvxfen package as 6.0.300.100:
        # pkg info VRTSvxfen

5. Start vxfen and all its dependent services:
        # svcadm enable -s vxfen
        # hastart
    etc.


REMOVING THE PATCH
------------------
On Solaris 11, patch removal is not supported.  If you created a new boot environment before installing the new VRTSvxfen package, you can revert to the boot environment which was in effect prior to that installation.

 *  To revert to previous boot environment, perform steps 1-3 below on each cluster node.

 1. Activate the boot environment which was in effect prior to installing this patch (noted in step 1 of 'To create a new boot environment' above):
        # beadm activate <prev_BE_name> 

 2. Reboot the node so that the new boot environment takes effect:
        # reboot

 3. (optional) If you have no further use for the boot environment on which you installed the patch, you may destroy it:
        # beadm destroy <new_BE_name> 

    Example:
        # beadm destroy sfha_vxfen

If you did not create a new boot environment, you must uninstall the version of VRTSvxfen included in this patch and then re-install the prior version of the package (6.0.300.0) from original source media.


SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
--------------------
You need to install VRTSllt-6.0.300.100 and VRTSgab-6.0.300.200 patches with this patch. If you have SFRAC, VRTSdbac-6.0.100.100 patch need to be installed in addition to the patches mentioned above.
