===================
Pack Dependencies
===================

-- Install NB_PDE_60_MP1_283808 before you install this patch.

-- If you also plan to install NB_PDE_60_MP1_P01, be aware that the order in
   which you install the NB_PDE patch and this NB_PDO patch does not matter.  
   You can install the NB_PDE patch first, or you can install the NB_PDO patch
   first.  However, install these two patches in sequence.  The installation  
   instructions for each patch require you to perform a disaster recovery      
   backup.  You do not need to perform a disaster recovery backup for each    
   patch if you install the second patch shortly after you install the first  
   patch.                                                                      


===================================

1.      Download the patch by clicking below on the "Download Now" link.

2.      Use rcp or scp to copy the downloaded file, NB_PDO_60_MP1_SO2_285746.tar,
       to the /root directory of the PureDisk node that is hosting the SPA.

3.      Log on to the node that hosts the SPA as user root.

4.      Type cd /root to go to the /root directory.

5.      Type the following command to verify the integrity of the patch:

               md5sum /root/NB_PDO_60_MP1_SO2_285746.tar

       This command computes the md5 checksum of the patch file.  The md5
       checksum of the patch file must match the one mentioned on
       http://support.veritas.com/docs/285746.  If you obtain a different checksum,
       the patch was corrupted during download. Try to download the

IV. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
=============================

1.      Log out from the Web UI

2.      Type the following command to unpack the patch software:

               tar -C / -xf /root/NB_PDO_60_MP1_SO2_285746.tar

3.      Type the following command to run and install the patch:

               sh /PdosSecurityPatch02.sh

4.      Run the following command to verify that the new kernel installed correctly:

               rpm -qa | grep kernel

               If the command returns a version number of 2.6.5-7.282, then the kernel
               was upgraded successfully.

5.      Reboot your system.

6.      Perform a disaster recovery backup.

               Use the instructions in the PureDisk Remote Office Edition Administrator's
               Guide that is posted to the following Web site:
               
http://support.veritas.com/docs/281792
               
This backup preserves both the databases and the content router data.
               
NOTE 1: As of the MP1 release, the disaster recovery backup procedure differs
               from the procedure that existed in previous releases.  If you are not
               familiar with the MP1 disaster recovery backup procedure, see the Veritas
               NetBackup PureDisk Remote Office Edition Adminstrator's Guide posted to the
               web site noted previously in this step.

NOTE 2:  This patch must be applied to all servers running NetBackup PureDisk Remote Office Edition.
