New Features with 3.5 and 3.5 MP1:

1. Installer - an automated installation and licensing procedure that lets you install packages using an Installation Menu instead of installing from the command line. This installer procedure cannot be used to upgrade a product.  Please refer to the product Installation Guide for upgrade procedures.

2. The 3.5 and 3.5 MP1 releases contain a new unified GUI - VERITAS Enterprise Administrator (VEA) which replaces VERITAS Volume Manager Storage Administrator (VMSA). VMSA is not compatible with 3.5 and VEA is not compatible with pre-3.5 releases.

3. The 3.5 and 3.5 MP1 releases contain a new licensing package which installs three commands under /sbin: vxlicinst - Install a new license, vxlicrep - display  
a license report, vxlictest - retrieve features encoded in a license key as well as descriptions.
