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

Patch ID: 149788-02

* 3331065 (Tracking ID: 3338946)

SYMPTOM:
Process Offline resources fail to register with AMF.

DESCRIPTION:
Sometimes when a process offline registration is requested and the
system is under heavy load, AMF library fails to verify whether the resource is
actually offline. As a result, registration fails.

RESOLUTION:
AMF library is fixed to handle this failure.

* 3331998 (Tracking ID: 3341320)

SYMPTOM:
Syslog gets flooded with "Cannot delete event (rid %d) in reaper" error
messages.

DESCRIPTION:
This was a harmless error message which appeared in syslog.

RESOLUTION:
AMF code is modified so that the error message does not appear in
the syslog.

Patch ID: 149788-01

* 3090243 (Tracking ID: 3090229)

SYMPTOM:
AMF driver panics the node when vxconfigd is unresponsive.

DESCRIPTION:
The libusnp_vxnotify.so library used for disk group notifications,
goes into an infinite loop when vxconfigd daemon is unresponsive. This causes
AMF to enter an inconsistent state as a result of which AMF driver panics the node.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has modified the AMF driver and libusnp_vxnotify.so
library, to address this issue.

* 3097346 (Tracking ID: 3097342)

SYMPTOM:
AMF driver panics the node when AMF is being stopped.

DESCRIPTION:
When AMF driver is being stopped, it stops the IMFD daemon. The
code to handle this sleeps while holding a lock. This causes AMF driver to panic
the node.

RESOLUTION:
Symantec has modified the AMF driver to fix this issue.
