II.  KNOWN ISSUES
=================  
This section contains known issues with this release.

-  Full end-to-end processing of NBCC/NBCCR data is not implemented for
   Active/Passive cluster configurations.  Due to NBCC/NBCCR data not being
   stored in a fail-over directory location, if a fail-over occurs during
   the course of a NBCC/NBCCA/NBCCR sequence of gather/repairs, a  manual
   placement/copying of NBCC/NBCCR data may be necessary to continue the
   repair sequence.

Etrack Incident = ET3334742

Description:
Due to the common occurrence of Media servers being offline, removed
the failure of a

vmoprcmd -h <host> -devconfig

command attempt from being treated as a hi-level error that would
prevent NBCC from doing consistency checks. Instead, the media server
is going to be considered down and NBCC processing would continue as
normal. This was accomplished by updating the conditions for
considering a media server as being DOWN from being primarily based
on a lack of response from the

bpgetconfig -g <host> -L

command attempts to a lack of response from the

vmoprcmd -h <host> -devconfig

command attempts. The updated Truth table for this overall logic
change is:

bpgetconfig   vmoprcmd   Results
-------------   ------------   ----------
Works            Works            UP
Failed             Works          *UP
Works             Failed          *DOWN
Failed             Failed          *DOWN
Failed          Not attempted   DOWN

* = Change from previous releases
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET3342035

Description:
Updated the processing of nbcc-bpimagelist-l data to take AIR
fragments, AIR TIR fragments and images that contain either multiple
TIR fragments or TIR fragments that span media into account.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET3434422

Description:
Updated the

nbdevquery -listdp

processing logic, adding the ability to process Disk Pools that
contained multiple Host servers.
