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

Patch ID: VRTSvxfs-6.1.1.200

* 3660421 (Tracking ID: 3660422)

SYMPTOM:
On RHEL 6.6, umount(8) system call hangs if an application is watching for inode
events using inotify(7) APIs.

DESCRIPTION:
On RHEL 6.6, additional counters were added in the super block to track inotify
watches, these new counters were not implemented in VxFS.
Hence while doing umount, the operation hangs until the counter in the
superblock drops to zero, which would never happen since they are not handled in
VXFS.

RESOLUTION:
Code is modified to handle additional counters added in RHEL6.6.

Patch ID: VRTSvxvm-6.1.1.100

* 3632970 (Tracking ID: 3631230)

SYMPTOM:
VRTSvxvm patch version 6.0.5 and 6.1.1 will not work with RHEL6.6 update.

DESCRIPTION:
For supporting RHEL6.6 update, dmp module is recomipled with latest RHEL6.6 
kernel version. During post install of the package
the APM modules fails to load due to mismatch in DMP and additional APM module 
kernel version.

RESOLUTION:
ASLAPM package is recompiled with RHEL6.6 kernel.

Patch ID: VRTSllt-6.1.1.100

1. Copy the hot-fix sfha-rhel6.6_x86_64-6.1.1.200-rpms.tar.gz to /tmp
2. Untar sfha-rhel6.6_x86_64-6.1.1.200-rpms.tar.gz to /tmp/hf
    # mkdir /tmp/hf
    # cd /tmp/hf
    # gunzip /tmp/sfha-rhel6.6_x86_64-6.1.1.200-rpms.tar.gz
    # tar xf /tmp/sfha-rhel6.6_x86_64-6.1.1.200-rpms.tar
3. Install the hotfix
    # pwd /tmp/hf
    # ./installSFHA611P200 [<host1> <host2>...]

You can also use the 6.1.1MR installmr to install this patch together with 6.1.1:
# cd <6.1.1MR path>
# ./installmr -hotfix_path /tmp/hf [<host1> <host2>...]

Or, you can use the 6.1.1MR installmr to install this patch together with 6.1.1 and 6.1GA bits:
# cd <6.1.1MR path>
# ./installmr -hotfix_path /tmp/hf -base_path [<61GA path>] [<host1> <host2>...]
where the -base_path should point to the 6.1GA image directory.


Install the patch manually:
--------------------------
o Before-the-upgrade :-
  (a) Stop I/Os to all the VxVM volumes.
  (b) Umount any filesystems with VxVM volumes.
  (c) Stop applications using any VxVM volumes.
o Select the appropriate RPMs for your system, and upgrade to the new patch.
   # rpm -Uhv VRTSvxvm-6.1.1.100-RHEL6.x86_64.rpm VRTSaslapm-6.1.1.200-RHEL6.x86_64.rpm VRTSvxfs-6.1.1.200-RHEL6.x86_64.rpm VRTSllt-6.1.1.100-RHEL6.x86_64.rpm


REMOVING THE PATCH
------------------
# rpm -e  <rpm-name>


KNOWN ISSUES
------------
* Tracking ID: 3690067

SYMPTOM: The 'delayed allocation' (ie 'dalloc') feature on VxFS 6.1.1.100
p-patch can cause data loss or stale data.

 Dalloc feature is enabled by default for local mounted file system
and is not supported for cluster mounted file systems. Dalloc with sequential
extending buffer writes can possibly cause data loss or stale data. This issue
is seen only with 6.1.1.100 p patch.

WORKAROUND: disable the 'delayed allocation' ('dalloc') feature on the VxFS filesystems.

Following commands are used to disable dalloc.

1)For a filesystem which is already mounted
# vxtunefs -s -o dalloc_enable=0 $MOUNT_POINT

2) To make the value persistent across system reboot, add an entry to
/etc/vx/tunefstab
/dev/vx/dsk/$DISKGROUP/$VOLUME      dalloc_enable=0
