Section 2: Installation
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This section describes how to install the rolling patch.

2.A - Patch information
========================
The 5.0MP1-RP1 patch is contained in the following file:

ER_50MP1_RP1.tar.Z


2.B - Preparing Enterprise Reporter for installation
=====================================================
1. Log in to the Enterprise Reporter Console.

2. Verify that there are no data rollups in progress. In the Enterprise
  Reporter Console, click Data Management > Data Rollup Configuration > Status.
  All data rollup processes must be complete.

3. Disable all data sources for data rollup.


2.C - Installing the patch
===========================
1. Download the files that you need and uncompress them as follows:

  - `uncompress ER_50MP1_RP1.tar.Z`
 
     (outcome of the above command will be ER_50MP1_RP1.tar)

  - To extract the tar ball: `tar -xvf ER_50MP1_RP1.tar`

  By default, the files are uncompressed to a ER/50MP1_RP1/unix directory.

2. Copy the unix directory on the host where CommandCentral Enterprise
  Reporter 5.0MP1 is installed. Please do not install from a mounted file system as we don't support it.

3. Run ./installrp from the unix directory.

4. Follow the install script prompts.

  When the installer prompts you to update database schema, if you choose
  option 1, the installer guides you through the process. If you choose
  option 2, refer to section 2.D for instructions.

  The installer displays the path to all logs at the end of the install.


2.D - Manually upgrading Enterprise Reporter database schema
=============================================================

NOTE: You need to perform this procedure only if you choose option 2 in the
     5.0MP1-RP1 installer.

1. If the Enterprise Reporter Management Server and the Enterprise Reporter
  database are on same hosts, perform the following steps:

  - Open a UNIX console and log in as root on the Enterprise Reporter Management
    Server.

  - Change the OS user to the user running the database server. For example:

    su - oracle

2. If the Enterprise Reporter Management Server and the Enterprise Reporter
  database are on different hosts, perform the following steps:

  - Open a UNIX console and log in as root on the Enterprise Reporter database
    host.

  - Provide access from the Enterprise Reporter database host to the directory
    on the Management Server host where the 5.0MP1-RP1 database scripts
    resides (enterprise_reporter/scripts/db/). You can either create a network
    share, or copy the directory contents to the database host.

  - Change the OS user to the user running the database server. For example:

    su - oracle

3. Upgrade the Enterprise Reporter database as follows:

  - Change to a writeable directory. For example, the following command changes
    to the writeable directory tmp.

    cd /tmp

    Note: The current directory should be writeable as the SQL scripts create
          temporary files.

  - Connect to the Enterprise Reporter database as a sysdba user.

    sqlplus user_name/password@ER_database as sysdba

  - Run the following commands at the SQL*Plus prompt. mnt_path is the directory
    where the product installer is mounted.

    SQL> shutdown immediate
    SQL> startup restrict
    SQL> @/mnt_path/enterprise_reporter/scripts/db/saharaUpgradeRP1.sql

    Verify that no errors occur during the database upgrade before proceeding
    to the next step. At the end of a successful database upgrade, the message
    "Sahara schema successfully updated!" appears.

  - After the database upgrade, the upgrade script disconnects from the
    Enterprise Reporter database. Connect to the Enterprise Reporter database
    again as a dba user.

    sqlplus user_name/password@ER_database as sysdba

  - Run the following command at the SQL*Plus prompt.

    SQL> alter system disable restricted session;

  - Run the following command to exit from SQL*Plus.

    SQL> quit


2.E - Confirming installation
=============================
After you install CommandCentral Enterprise Reporter 5.0MP1-RP1, you can
verify that all patches and files have been added/modified by confirming
that your host has been updated as follows:

Product version will remain as Veritas CommandCentral Enterprise Reporter
5.0MP1 by Symantec. The command 'showrev -p | grep VRTS' will list patch
IDs 128056-01 and 139143-01.

Section 3: What's new in this rolling patch
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

5.0MP1-RP1 contains and builds upon CommandCentral Enterprise Reporter
5.0MP1 functionality, providing the following new capabilities:

- Support for rolling up data from CommandCentral 5.1 Management Servers

- Ability to roll up the following attributes:

  - For NetApp unified storage devices, quota capacities are rolled up as
    qtree measures/facts. You can use these attributes for billing.

  - For hosts, cluster related information that identifies if the host is
    part of a cluster, the type of cluster to which the host belongs, and
    the version of the cluster.

  - For LUNs, physical disk size, disk vendor information, vendor layout,
    number of array ports to which the LUN is connected, and if the rollup
    is based on an external LUN. You can use these attributes to better
    define storage tiers.
