DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: 7.4.3.200

* 4021519 (Tracking ID: 4021515)

SYMPTOM:
On SLES 12 SP4 and later systems, the installer fails to fetch the media speed of the network interfaces.

DESCRIPTION:
The path of the 'ethtool' command is changed in SLES 12 SP4. Therefore, on SLES 12 SP4 and later systems, the installer does not recognize the changed path and uses an incorrect path '/sbin/ethtool' instead of '/usr/sbin/ethtool' for the 'ethtool' command. Consequently, while configuring the product, the installer fails to fetch the media speed of the network interfaces and displays its value as "Unknown".

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the installer to use the correct path for the 'ethtool' command.

* 4029177 (Tracking ID: 4027759)

SYMPTOM:
The product installer installs lower versions packages if multiple patch bundles are specified using the patch path options in the incorrect order.

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer expects that the patch bundles, if any, are specified in the lower-to-higher order. Consequently, the installer always overrides the package version from the available package in the last patch bundle in which it exists. If patch bundles are not specified in the expected order, installer installs last available version for a component package.

RESOLUTION:
To address this issue, the product installer is updated to correctly identify the higher package version before installing the patch bundles. It does so regardless of the order in which the patch bundles are specified.

* 4033243 (Tracking ID: 4033242)

SYMPTOM:
When a responsefile is used, the product installer fails to add the required VCS users.

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer fails to add the required VCS users during configuration, if a responsefile is used to provide the corresponding input.

RESOLUTION:
This patch updates the installer so that it adds the required VCS users while using a responsefile for configuration.

* 4033688 (Tracking ID: 4033687)

SYMPTOM:
The InfoScale product installer deletes any existing cluster configuration files during uninstallation.

DESCRIPTION:
During uninstallation, the product installer deletes cluster configuration files like /etc/llthosts, /etc/llttab, and so on. Consequently, when you reinstall the InfoScale product, you need to perform all the cluster configuration procedures again.

RESOLUTION:
This patch updates the product installer so that it no longer deletes any existing cluster configuration files. Consequently, you can reconfigure the clusters quickly by using the existing configuration files.

* 4034354 (Tracking ID: 4033988)

SYMPTOM:
The product installer displays the following error message after the precheck and does not allow you to proceed with the installation:
The higher version of <package_name> is already installed on <system_name>

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer compares the versions of the packages in an Infoscale patch bundle with those of the packages that are installed on a system. If a more recent version of any of the packages in the bundle is found to be already installed on the system, the installer displays an error. It does not allow you to proceed further with the installation.

RESOLUTION:
The product installer is updated to allow the installation of an Infoscale patch bundle that may contain older versions of some packages. Instead of an error message, the installer now displays a warning message and lets you proceed with the installation.
