VERITAS Volume Manager 5.0 MP3HF1 for Linux

This is a hotfix patch 1 for Veritas Volume Manager 5.0MP3 on Linux.
This patch can only be installed on top of the following:
               VERITAS Volume Manager 5.0MP3
=======================================================================
SmartMove can be used to migrate online to thin provisioning capable
storage arrays and automatically reclaim unused space. In 5.0 MP3 GA,
SmartMove only applies to the vxplex command and is turned off by
default. This hotfix extends SmartMove to all supported VxVM move
operations, layered volumes and instant snapshots. With the hotfix,
the default behavior is to use SmartMove for VxVM volumes that
contain disks that are known to be thin, typically through automated
discovery of device attributes.
=======================================================================

Patch Installation Instructions:
--------------------------------

o Before-the-upgrade :-
 (a) Stop I/Os to all the VxVM volumes.
 (b) Umount any filesystems with VxVM volumes.
 (c) Stop applications using any VxVM volumes.

o Select the appropriate RPMs for your system, and upgrade to the new patch.
