================================================================================
Refer to Symantec_Security_Information_Manager_4.8_Patch_5_Release_Notes.pdf
for a list of fixes.

================================================================================
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY THE PATCH
================================================================================
* Apply this patch only to those SSIM Servers that are running Information
Manager 4.8.0

NOTE: SSIM 4.8.0 Patch 5 requires 600 MB of free disk space in the / and /opt
partitions.

================================================================================
INFORMATION MANAGER DOCUMENTATION
================================================================================
For more information about Symantec Security Information Manager, a knowledge
base is available on the Symantec Technical Support Web site at the following
URL:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/overview.jsp?pid=52517

The knowledge base articles can be accessed from the Technical Solution section
or from the KB Articles link listed under the Product Support section. In the
Downloads section of the site, you can obtain files for your licensed product
including Agents, drivers, and patches. The SSIM manuals and guides can be
accessed from the Documentation section.

================================================================================
PATCH PRE-INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
================================================================================
Before you install the Patch, do the following:

* For systems where the Information manager was never restarted after
  installation of 4.8, Symantec recommends to reboot the server once before
  applying the Patch.

* Save all work, backup any data and close any Information Manager console
  sessions.

The SSIM Directory Servers must be updated first, starting with the primary
directory, then followed by all replica directories. All other SSIM Servers can
then be updated.

NOTE: There is no facility to roll back or uninstall the Patch.

================================================================================
PATCH INSTALLATION
================================================================================
 1. Connect to the server using an account with administrative or root
    privileges either by using an SSH client or by logging on locally.

 2. Download the Symantec_Security_Information_Manager_4.8.0.924_Linux_EN.tar.gz
    and .md5 files to the /tmp directory.

    NOTE: You must use BINARY mode when transferring the files to the server.
    Some FTP utilities use ASCII mode by default, which corrupts the
    installation file.

 3. Verify the integrity of the downloaded .tar.gz file by using a file
    verification tool such as md5sum, which is included with the Linux
    installation. If you use md5sum, execute the following command:

   md5sum -c Symantec_Security_Information_Manager_4.8.0.924_Linux_EN.tar.gz.md5

    NOTE: Both the .tar.gz and .md5 files must be present in the same directory
    for md5sum to execute correctly.

    For more information on md5sum, see the Linux man pages.

 4. Unpack the patch by executing the following command:

    tar -xvzf Symantec_Security_Information_Manager_4.8.0.924_Linux_EN.tar.gz

 5. Change directory to the patch directory by executing the following command:

    cd Patch5-480

 6. Execute the following command:

    sh install.sh

    NOTE: The installer will automatically restart all the services when done.
    The SSIM installation history file will be updated at /etc/ssim-history.

    The Patch installation logs are available at
    /opt/Symantec/simserver/logs/sima-upgrade_4.8.0.924.log

================================================================================
SYSTEMS AFFECTED
================================================================================
Only the SSIM Servers on which this Patch is applied will be affected.
