Prior to the release of Cumulative Patches (CP's), most hotfixes required contacting Veritas 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.
CP14 has been released for Storage Foundation High Availability for Windows (SFW-HA), Storage Foundation for Windows (SFW) and Veritas Cluster Server for Windows (VCS) 6.0. CP12 is available to download from the Services and Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) https://sort.veritas.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.
The CPs available on SORT are:
