INSTALLING THE PATCH
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.  Copy the point patch to a directory on your system:

       # cp <patch.gz> .

2.  Unzip the compressed patch files that you want to install:

       # gunzip *.gz

3.  Extract the compressed patch files from the tar files:

       # tar -xvf <patch.tar>

4.  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.

5.  Verify that the version of VRTSvcs is 5.0 MP3.
   On each system, type:

       # pkginfo -l VRTSvcs
   Output should resemble the following:
  PKGINST:  VRTSvcs
     NAME:  Veritas Cluster Server by Symantec
 CATEGORY:  system
     ARCH:  i386
  VERSION:  5.0
  BASEDIR:  /
   VENDOR:  Symantec Corporation
     DESC:  Veritas Cluster Server by Symantec
   PSTAMP:  Veritas-5.0MP3-08/29/08-16:43:00
 INSTDATE:  Oct 17 2008 12:07
   STATUS:  completely installed
    FILES:      174 installed pathnames
                 27 shared pathnames
                  4 linked files
                 50 directories
                 88 executables
             153779 blocks used (approx)

6. 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 -force

  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:
       # kill -9 <PID>

7. Change directory to the patch location.

8. On each node in the cluster, install the patch that corresponds to the
  version of the operating system running:
       # cd patches
       # patchadd <patch_id>

       Install patch 139154-01.
   Output resembles:
       Checking installed patches...
       Executing prepatch script...
       Verifying sufficient filesystem capacity (dry run method)...
       Installing patch packages...
       /var/sadm/pkg
       Patch number 139154-01 has been successfully installed.
       See /var/sadm/patch/139154-01/log for details
       Patch packages installed:
         VRTSvcs

9.  After installation is complete, verify that the patch has been installed.
  On each system, type:
       # showrev -p | grep <patch_id>
   The information displayed after successful installation resembles the
   following :

       # showrev -p | grep 139154
       Patch: 139154-01 Obsoletes:  Requires: 128048-03 Incompatibles:  Packages: VRTSvcs

10. 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.

REMOVING VCS PATCH
----------------------------------------------------------------
To remove the patch from a running VCS cluster:

1.  Perform step 6 from INSTALLING THE PATCH procedure.

2.  On each node in the cluster, type the following command:

       # patchrm <patch_id>
3.  Verify that the patch has been removed from each system.
       # showrev -p | grep 139154

       It should not list the patch on this system.

4. Restart the cluster by following step 10 from INSTALLING THE PATCH
  procedure.
