Prior to the release of Cumulative Patches (CPS), most hotfixes that were needed required contact with Symantec Technical Services. Depending on the issue that is being experienced, the requirement for interaction can increase downtime or delay the movement of servers into a production environment.
CP4 has been released for Storage Foundation for Windows High Availability (SFW-HA), Storage Foundation for Windows (SFW) and Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) 5.1 Service Pack (SP) 2. CP4 is available to download from the Symantec Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) https://sort.symantec.com/ and can be used to install the fixes for the issues described in the Readme included with download and listed as Etrack incidents below.
