1. For Linux, install 5.0RP1 on hosts that have Storage Foundation 5.0MP1.
   Linux 5.0RP1 patches will not work on Storage Foundation 5.0.

2. Centrally managed hosts ( hosts managed by Storage Foundation Manager Server
  SFMS) need to be upgraded to 5.0MP1 before applying this rolling patch.

3. During migrate from central mode to standalone mode or vice-versa one may
   encounter errors only if vea is running, these need to be ignored.
