PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

On machines running SuSE Linux, the kernel panic() routine can get stuck in sync_sys() call.

This may result in both sides of the network partition continue to operate independently.

PATCH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
--------------------------------

The patch needs to be installed after installing Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) 5.0.



Stop VCS and Cluster Volume Manager (CVM) on all nodes. CVM is usually under VCS control and so will automatically come down when VCS is stopped using the following command on any node in the cluster:

       hastop -all

---------------------------------------------------
*** Steps to be run on every system in the cluster:
---------------------------------------------------

1. Log on as superuser on the system where the point patch is to be installed

2. Stop the VxFEN module using the following command:

       /etc/init.d/vxfen stop

3. Upgrade the VRTSvxfen package using the following command:
       rpm -Uvh VRTSvxfen-5.0.00.01-PP_SLES9.x86_64.rpm

  Where VRTSvxfen-5.0.00.01-PP_SLES9.x86_64.rpm is the package rpm provided in the point patch

4. Bring up VxFEN by using the following command:

       /etc/init.d/vxfen start

5. Bring up VCS on all the nodes:

       hastart
