2. Double-click on VCS_86803b_hotfix_244705.exe. All files and folders will be extracted to the specified location.

3. Double-click on VCS86803.exe.

3. Follow on-screen instructions.

4. Upon the successful completion of the Hotfix installation, the node will display the Shutdown Computer dialog box.

NOTE: DO NOT CLICK RESTART UNTIL ALL NODES HAVE HAD THE HOTFIX APPLIED.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 on all systems in the cluster.

Manual Install Method

NOTE: Before installing the hotfix, you must take all service groups offline on all systems in the cluster.

1. Download the hotfix files to a temporary location on your cluster system.

2. Double-click on VCS_86803b_hotfix_244705.exe. All files and folders will be extracted to the specified location.

3. Save your current configuration.

4. Verify the cluster is in a consistent state by typing "hasys -state" at the command prompt.
Note: All systems should be in a RUNNING state.

5. At the command-prompt, type "hasys -display".
Note: Make sure the value of the attribute ConfigDiskState is CURRENT for all systems.

6. If the cluster had VCSNT HOTFIX # 121-4, 121-6, or 82163 installed, proceed to step 7. If the cluster did not have VCSNT HOTFIX # 121-4, 121-6, or 82163 installed, do the following:

a. Delete the existing PrintShare service groups.

b. Run the executable ModifyTypes.bat. This updates the existing PrintShare and PrintSpool resource types in your configuration file Types.cf.

7. Stop the VERITAS High Availability Daemon (had) by typing "hastop -all" at the command prompt.

NOTE: VCS CLUSTERED APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE.

8. From the downloaded hotfix files, copy the \bin and \Templates directories at the path %VCS_HOME%\ on the system.
The variable %VCS_HOME% is the default installation directory for VCS, typically C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Cluster Server.

9. Stop the DiskRes driver by typing the following command: "net stop rsrvscsi"

10. Copy the file %VCS_HOME%\bin\DiskRes\rsrvscsi.sys to %windir%\system32\drivers. This will overwrite the previous version of the driver.

11. Shut the system down.

12. Repeat step 8 through step 11 on all systems in the cluster. After you have installed the hotfix on all systems, reboot them one by one.

KNOWN ISSUE WITH THE HOTFIX: To uninstall VCS after installing this hotfix, you must run the HFUpdate utility on all systems that are part of a PrintShare service group. To run the utility, type the following at the command-prompt: "HFUpdate".

You can then run the VCS uninstaller to uninstall VCS. For more information, refer to the TechNote "Cannot uninstall VERITAS Cluster Servier if Hotfix #86803 is installed..." This document can be accessed via the link in the Related Documents section below.
