Patch content

This patch consists of the following files:

  • VVM_volume_list.cmd
  • VVM_vxprint_format.js

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are getting a false alarm from the VVMVolumeStatus parameter on Windows systems.

What does it fix?

The value of the VVMVolumeStateNT parameter was sometimes improperly set to Degraded (=5) instead of Active (=0); which caused a false alarm to be triggered by the VVMVolumeStatus parameter.

How to install the patch?

  1. Unzip the following file to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\VVM directory on the managed server:
    • patch_vvm-129.zip
  2. There is no need to restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect. The KM will automatically use the new script and the bug will be fixed during the next volume collection cycle.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on the Console systems.
