       Veritas Cluster Server and Commands by Symantec (i686)
       Build Stamp : Veritas-5.0-2008-07-16_02.01.00

4. Freeze all the service groups persistently.
   # haconf -makerw
   # hagrp -freeze <group> -persistent

5. Stop the cluster on all nodes. If the cluster is writable, you may
  close the configuration before stopping the cluster.

       # haconf -dump -makero

  From one node, execute the following command.

       # hastop -all

  Verify that the cluster is stopped on all nodes
  by running the ha command.

       # hasys -state

  On all nodes, make sure that both had & hashadow processes are stopped.
  Also, stop the VCS CmdServer on all nodes.
  Determine the PID of the CmdServer and enter:
       # CmdServer -stop

6. Change directory to the patch location.

7. On each node in the cluster, install the patch that corresponds to the
   version of the operating system running. We need to use -U and not -i
   as it is rpm upgrade.:
       # rpm -Uvh <patch.rpm>

       For RHEL4, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4.i686.rpm
       For RHEL5, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL5.i686.rpm
       For SLES9, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_SLES9.i586.rpm
       For SLES10, install VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_SLES10.i586.rpm

8. After installation is complete, verify that the patch has been installed.
  For example on each RHEL4 system, type:
       # rpm -qa  | grep VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4

  You will see output like,
       VRTSvcs-5.0.30.01-MP3HF1_RHEL4

9. At this time, you can start cluster services on all cluster nodes.
   On one node, please verify that VCS configuration is valid.

       # hacf -verify config

   If the configuration is valid, start VCS:

       # hastart

   On all other nodes, start VCS by issuing hastart once the
   first node goes to LOCAL_BUILD or RUNNING state.

10. Unfreeze all the groups.
   # haconf -makerw
   # hagrp -unfreeze <group> -persistent
   # haconf -dump -makero
