Patch ID: 6.0.100.300

* 3008454 (Tracking ID: 3004466)

SYMPTOM:
Installation of 5.1SP1RP3 fails on RHEL 6.3

DESCRIPTION:
Installation of 5.1SP1RP3 fails on RHEL 6.3

RESOLUTION:
Updated the install script to handle the installation failure.

Patch ID: 6.0.100.200

* 2912412 (Tracking ID: 2857629)

SYMPTOM:
When a new node takes over a primary for the file system, it could 
process stale shared extent records in a per node queue.  The primary will 
detect a bad record and set the full fsck flag.  It will also disable the file 
system to prevent further corruption.

DESCRIPTION:
Every node in the cluster that adds or removes references to shared extents, 
adds the shared extent records to a per node queue.  The primary node in the 
cluster processes the records in the per node queues and maintains reference 
counts in a global shared extent device.  In certain cases the primary node 
might process bad or stale records in the per node queue.  Two situations under 
which bad or stale records could be processed are:
    1. clone creation initiated from a secondary node immediately after primary 
migration to different node.
    2. queue wraparound on any node and take over of primary by new node 
immediately afterwards.
Full fsck might not be able to rectify the file system corruption.

RESOLUTION:
Update the per node shared extent queue head and tail pointers to correct values 
on primary before starting processing of shared extent records.

* 2912435 (Tracking ID: 2885592)

SYMPTOM:
vxdump of a file system which is compressed using vxcompress is aborted.

DESCRIPTION:
vxdump is aborted due to malloc() failure. malloc()fails due to a 
memory leak in vxdump command code while handling compressed extents.

RESOLUTION:
Fixed the memory leak.

* 2923805 (Tracking ID: 2590918)

SYMPTOM:
Upon new node in the cluster taking over as primary of the file system, 
there might be a significant delay in freeing up unshared extents.  This problem 
can occur only in the case when shared extent addition or deletions occurred 
immediately after primary switch over to different node in the cluster.

DESCRIPTION:
When a new node in the cluster takes over as primary for the file 
system, a file system thread in the new primary performs a full scan of the 
shared extent device file to free up any shared extents that have become 
completely unshared.  If heavy shared extent related activity such as additional 
sharing or unsharing of extents were to occur anywhere in the cluster while the 
full scan was being performed, the full scan could get interrupted.  Due to a 
bug, the full scan is marked as completed and scheduled further scans of the 
shared extent device are partial scans.  This will cause a substantial delay in 
freeing up some of the unshared extents in the device file.

RESOLUTION:
If the first full scan of shared extent device upon primary takeover 
gets interrupted, then do not mark the full scan as complete.

Patch ID: 6.0.100.100

* 2907912 (Tracking ID: 2907908)

SYMPTOM:
VxFS and VxVM components fail to install post SLES11SP2 GA kernel 
versions (below mentioned kernel versions)

3.0.26-0.7.6
3.0.31-0.9.1
3.0.34-0.7.9
3.0.38-0.5.1

DESCRIPTION:
Starting from 3.0 kernel onwards, the 3.0+ kernel versions have 3 
numbers whereas 2.6 kernel versions had 4 numbers.  It turns out that the logic 
to look at first 3 digits as the 'kern_major' needs to be updated to work for 
3.0.* kernel versions and subsequently for SLES11SP2 new kernel

RESOLUTION:
Changed the code to look at only first 2 digits as the 'kern_major' 
for 3.0.* kernel versions

* 2907921 (Tracking ID: 2907919)

SYMPTOM:
VxFS and VxVM components fail to install post SLES11SP2 GA kernel 
versions (below mentioned kernel versions)

3.0.26-0.7.6
3.0.31-0.9.1
3.0.34-0.7.9
3.0.38-0.5.1

DESCRIPTION:

numbers whereas 2.6 kernel versions had 4 numbers.  It turns out that the logic 
to look at first 3 digits as the 'kern_major' needs to be updated to work for 
3.0.* kernel versions and subsequently for SLES11SP2 new kernel

RESOLUTION:

for 3.0.* kernel versions

* 2907924 (Tracking ID: 2907923)

SYMPTOM:

versions (below mentioned kernel versions)

3.0.26-0.7.6
3.0.31-0.9.1
3.0.34-0.7.9
3.0.38-0.5.1

DESCRIPTION:

* 2907932 (Tracking ID: 2907930)

SYMPTOM:
VxFS and VxVM components fail to install post SLES11SP2 GA kernel 
versions (below mentioned kernel versions)

3.0.26-0.7.6
3.0.31-0.9.1

for 3.0.* kernel versions

* 2910648 (Tracking ID: 2905579)

SYMPTOM:
VxVM rpm installation on SLES11SP2 fails for kernel version 3.0.26-0.7.6 and 
above with following error message:

"This release of vxdmp does not contain any modules which are suitable for your 
3.0.31-0.9-default kernel.
error: %post(VRTSvxvm-6.0.100.000-GA_SLES11.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit 
status 1"

DESCRIPTION:
SUSE for SLES11 SP2 released kernel version updates (3.0.26-0.7.6, 3.0.31-0.9.1,
3.0.34-0.7.9, 3.0.38-0.5.1) following its earlier kernel version 3.0.13-
0.27.1.

VxVM kernel modules are built against 3.0.13-0.27.1, which are compatible to 
other kernel updates as well. 

But when installing installation scripts used to treat first three digits 
(e.g. 3.0.13) of version as short kernel version, which must match with
kernel version of machine. 

As in case of updated kernel versions, short kernel version does not match
and fails with error saying modules are not suitable for kernel.

RESOLUTION:
Installation scripts are now updated so that for 3.0 kernel series first 2 
digits of kernel version are treated as short kernel version.
