   have to be stopped (unmount any mounted filesystems on VxVM volumes
   etc). If any VxVM volumes are in use, the installation process will
   be aborted.

2. Use the installp or Smit to install the patch image.

   Using installp:

   0. Before applying this patch, please kill the vxsvc process:

        /opt/VRTSob/bin/vxsvcctrl stop
