   the patch on each system in the cluster:

   Install the following patch with Solaris 10 SPARC operating system:

       patch 139146-01

   On each system in the cluster, change directory to the patches location.

       # patchadd 139146-01

2.  Verify the patch is installed.

       # showrev -p | grep 139146-01

------------------------------------------------------

The manual installation option is for VCS users only.

To manually apply the patch to a running VCS cluster:

0.  Read this README_FIRST_VCS.txt before you install.

Perform steps 1 through 8 on one node of the cluster

1.  Verify that /opt/VRTS/bin is in your PATH so you can execute all the
   product commands. Refer to the VCS Installation Guide for more
   information.

2.  List the service groups in your cluster and their status. On any
   system, type:

       # hagrp -state

3.  Take the ClusterService service group offline, if it is running. On any
   system type:

       # hagrp -offline -force ClusterService -sys <system>

4.  Make the VCS configuration writable. On any system, type:

       # haconf -makerw

5. Freeze all service groups. On any system, type:

       # hagrp -freeze <service_group> -persistent

6. Save the configuration file (main.cf) with the groups frozen. On any
  system, type:

       # haconf -dump -makero

       # hastop -all -force

12. Restart VCS. On each system, type:

       # /etc/rc3.d/S99vcs start
13. After VCS has started on all systems, perform the following steps:

   a. Verify all resources have been probed. On any system, type:

       # hastatus -summary

   b. Unfreeze all service groups. On any system, type:

       # haconf -makerw

       # hagrp -unfreeze <service_group> -persistent

       # haconf -dump -makero

      system type:

       # hagrp -online ClusterService -sys <system>
