Updating release information on systems without Internet access using SORT and
the Deployment Server
===================================

When you install the Deployment Server, the installation includes product 
metadata that includes information about Veritas all prior base, maintenance, 
and hot fix releases across all the products and platforms.  If your system 
has Internet access, release matrix information is automatically updated 
from the SORT site with each use. If your system is behind a firewall, these 
updates are not possible and the release matrices eventually get out of date. 

To update release information on systems without Internet access, you can 
download a .tar file (deploy_sfha.tar) containing all the latest release 
matrices. Then, load it on to your Deployment Server.  The deploy_sfha.tar file
available from SORT is updated on a daily basis and there are typically several
release updates every week captured in the updates.

   Downloading a .tar file from the SORT site:
   ----------------------------------------------

	To obtain a .tar file with release updates, the easiest method is to 
        download a copy from the SORT website. 
	
	Go to https://sort.veritas.com/support/related_links/
	offline-release-updates and click on "deploy_sfha.tar [Download]", 
	and save the file to your desktop.  
	
   Loading releases and hot fixes onto your Deployment Server:
   ---------------------------------------------------------------

	Follow these steps using the system to which you downloaded the 
        deploy_sfha.tar file in the "Downloading a .tar file from the SORT site" above, 
        and your Deployment Server.	

	To load releases and hot fixes onto your Deployment Server:	

	1. On the Internet-enabled system, copy the deploy_sfha.tar file you downloaded 
	   in the previous procedure to a location accessible by the Deployment Server. 
           
	2. On the Deployment Server, change to the installation directory. For example, enter 
	   the following: 
		
		# cd /opt/VRTS/install/

	3. Run the Deployment Script. Enter the following: 

		#  ./deploy_sfha

	4. Select option M, Update Metadata and enter the location of the deploy_sfha.tar file 
	   (the installer calls it a "metadata tar file"). For example, enter the location of 
	   the metadata tar file: 

		/tmp/deploy_sfha.tar
