======================================================================
WIRELESS CORE PATCH INSTALLATION INFORMATION
======================================================================
-------------------------------------
INSTALLING THE WIRELESS CORE PATCH
-------------------------------------
1) The Partition Maintenance process must NOT be running:

Verify that the Partition Maintenance process is not running:
As user virtuo:
$ ksh
$ schedule_admin -list all

Check the JOBS RUNNING section in the output for any jobs named "pm_*".
For example, pm_weekly, pm_monthly, pm_daily. If any "pm_*" jobs
are listed, this indicates that the Partition Maintenance process is
running. You must wait until there are no "pm_*" jobs running before
starting the install.

Once 'schedule_admin' CLI reports all PM jobs as completed or failed,
make sure no 'zombie' Partition Maintenance processes exist. Run the
following command from 'sqlplus' connected to a PMW database as
DB user 'virtuo':

SELECT sid, serial# FROM v$session WHERE LOWER(module)='partmaint';

Any sessions returned need to be terminated before continuing the install.


2) All services apart from the database should be stopped (sap stop).

As user virtuo set WMCROOT, e.g.:
$ ksh
$ export WMCROOT=/appl/virtuo

Run the patch deploy
$ $WMCROOT/admin/common/install/scripts/deploy_patch -wmcr $WMCROOT -patch vallent-vt-patch-P1320136-TNPM1.3.2.0.136.tar.gz

Providing /appl as the location of the patch.

Note: Enter 1 to proceed installation
1. Install Virtuo Patch vallent-vt-patch-P1320136-TNPM1.3.2.0.136.tar.gz
----> 1

3) Run the post installation script.

As user virtuo:

$ cd $WMCROOT/admin/support/bin
$ ./post-install_TNPM132_IF47.ksh

-----------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
-----------------------

1) For any install issues encountered, please consult known documented
Issues on the TNPM Support webpage:
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/sysmgmt/products/support/TivoliNetcoolPerformanceManagerforWireless.html

2) IV58434 JOBS ARE NOT GETTING CLEANED UP

After this fix, all the jobs which are completed successfully were cleaned up after 1 day and the jobs finished with error are deleted after some number of days and that value is configured 'RGJobRetentionPeriod' in wm_system_values_v. Default value of this parameter is 14. The same behaviour is applied for autopurge value true or false.


3) 27929: Results of Weekly/Monthly summary with source =daily not matched with the result summary with source = raw when ForceSumSummarisation - False, ForceOverrideCounterTimeAggregator - true (IF0041)

If we are calculating weekly/monthly summary of a UDC using source as a daily with below configuration
ForceSumSummarisation = False and ForceOverrideCounterTimeAggregator =true
Then the daily summary should be calculated for the KPI on which UDC is defined with aggregator same as UDC’s aggregator and that daily summary should be calculated before execution of this summary. If daily summary for those KPI is not calculated with UDC’s aggregator then weekly/monthly summary calculated with default behavior i.e. summary is directly calculated from daily summary of UDC.

For more details, please refer to technote http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21677048

4) IV56287 NSN UTRAN LOADER PROBLEMS - UNEXPLAINABLE PERFORMANCE

In the case where the loader performance are degrading due to large nc tables causing long running processing at nc_cache, customer can perform below steps to pass the processing to SECONDARY nc_cache.
Eg. Loader1 is updating NC_NEIGHBOUR which contains a lot of rows and it's blocking other loaders for other NC tables
Update lc_loader_config_properties set value='NC_NEIGHBOUR' where loader_name = 'Loader1' and name='mastercache.secondary.tables';

To further improve performance for updating the nc tables please refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21677046

KNOWN ISSUES

----------------------------------------------
UN-INSTALLING THE WIRELESS CORE PATCH
----------------------------------------------

When the IF47 patch is uninstalled, the system will be rolled back to the
previous version of TNPM which was installed.

In the case where IF47 is installed on top of 1.3.2 IF41, when IF47 is
uninstalled the system is rolled back to 1.3.2 IF41.


1) All services, apart from the database, should be stopped (sap stop)

Verify that the services are not running using the following command:
$ sap disp

2) As user virtuo set WMCROOT, e.g.:
$ ksh
$ export WMCROOT=/appl/virtuo

Run the patch remove script
$ cd $WMCROOT/admin/software/core
$ ./vallent-vt-patch-P1320136.remove

4) As user virtuo:

$ ksh
$ cd $WMCROOT/admin/support/bin
$ ./post-uninstall_TNPM132_IF47.ksh
