PATCH NAME
----------
Veritas Cluster Server 6.0.4 Public Hot Fix 1


OPERATING SYSTEMS SUPPORTED BY THE PATCH
----------------------------------------
SLES10 x86-64


PACKAGES AFFECTED BY THE PATCH
------------------------------
VRTSvcsag


BASE PRODUCT VERSIONS FOR THE PATCH
-----------------------------------
   * Veritas Cluster Server 6.0.2
   * Veritas Storage Foundation High Availability 6.0.2


SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: 6.0.400.100
* 3323833 (3318335) VMwareDisks resource faults during data store migration of
VM or during creation, deletion, or reversal of the VMsnapshot.


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

Patch ID: 6.0.400.100

* 3323833 (Tracking ID: 3318335)

SYMPTOM:
In a VMware environment, during virtual machine (VM) snapshot creation 
or deletion, or during datastore migration, the VMwareDisks resource may fault. 
In such cases, the DiskPath attribute may contain multiple entries for storage 
disks attached to the same SCSI target and port.

DESCRIPTION:
During snapshot creation or deletion, or during datastore 
migration, the VMwareDisks agent updates the DiskPath attribute.
 
If you frequently create or delete VM snapshots, the DiskPath attribute may 
retain stale entries. If multiple stale entries have storage disks attached to 
the same SCSI target, port, and UUID, the VMwareDisks resource faults.

RESOLUTION:
The VMwareDisks agent is modified to automatically correct any stale 
entries in the DiskPaths attribute.



INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
Perform the following steps on all nodes in the VCS cluster:
1. Take backup of your configurations. 
2. Stop VCS on the cluster node.
3. Install the patch.
4. Restart VCS on the node.

Stopping VCS on the cluster node
--------------------------------
Perform the following steps:
1. Ensure that the "/opt/VRTSvcs/bin" directory is included in your PATH
   environment variable so that you can execute all the VCS commands. Refer
   to Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide for more information.

2. Ensure that the version of VRTSvcsag for Linux is 6.0.3  

3. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent

4. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may
   close the configuration before stopping the cluster.
    # haconf -dump -makero

   From any node, execute the following command.
    # hastop -all
    or
    # hastop -all -force

   Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes 
   by running the ha command.
    # hasys -state

   On all nodes, make sure that both had and hashadow processes are
   stopped.
   Also, stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes.
    # CmdServer -stop

Installing the Patch
--------------------
Perform the following steps:
1. Un-compress the downloaded patch from Symantec.
   Change the directory to the uncompressed patch location. 
   Install the VRTSvcsag patch using the following command:
   
      i. For RHEL5:
            # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_RHEL6.i686.rpm
     ii. For RHEL6:
            # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_RHEL6.i686.rpm
    iii. For SLES10:
            # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_SLES10.i586.rpm
     iv. For SLES11:
            # rpm -Uvh VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_SLES11.i586.rpm

2. Run the following command to verify if the new patch has been installed:
    # rpm -q VRTSvcsag
   If the proper patch is installed, the following output is displayed:

      i. For RHEL5:
            # VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_RHEL6.i686
     ii. For RHEL6:
            # VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_RHEL6.i686
    iii. For SLES10:
            # VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_SLES10.i586
     iv. For SLES11:
            # VRTSvcsag-6.0.400.100-GA_SLES11.i586
    
Re-starting VCS on the cluster node
-----------------------------------

1. To start the cluster services on all cluster 
   nodes. Execute the following command first on one node:
    # hastart

   On all the other nodes, start VCS by executing the hastart command after the 
   first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

2. Make VCS cluster writable.
     # haconf -makerw

3. Unfreeze all the groups.
     # hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero


REMOVING THE PATCH
------------------
Removal of the patch will result in removing the whole package 
from the system/node. To go back to a previous installed version 
of the package, you may need to re-install the package.
Run the following steps on all the VCS cluster nodes:

To remove the patch from a cluster node:
---------------------------------------------
1. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
    # haconf -makerw
    # hagrp -freeze [group] -persistent

2. Stop VCS on the node by following the steps provided in the section 
   "Stopping VCS on the cluster node".

3. Remove the patch by using the following command:
    # rpm -e VRTSvcsag

4. Verify that the patch has been removed from the system:
    # rpm -qa | grep VRTSvcsag
   Ensure that the VRTSvcsag package is not be displayed. This confirms 
   that the package is removed.

5. Install the VRTSvcsag package from the VCS 6.0.3 Installation DVD.

6. To start the cluster services on all cluster 
   nodes, execute the following command first on one node:
    # hastart

   On all the other nodes, start VCS by executing hastart after the 
   first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

7. Unfreeze all the groups.
     # hagrp -unfreeze [group] -persistent
     # haconf -dump -makero
