****************************************************************
Introduction
****************************************************************

All affected Harvest components on a machine must be shutdown before applying a PATCH/FIX on that machine.
The Harvest PATCH/FIX level needs to be the same on all Harvest installations.

The PATCH files are cumulative; in other words, applying the latest PATCH file provides all fixes.

For example: HAR511PATCH005 contains all fixes from HAR511PATCH001 to HAR511PATCH005.

To apply a patch/fix go to the APPLY PATCH/FIX section.

To rollback a patch/fix after it has been applied, go to the ROLLBACK PATCH/FIX section.

Appling a patch/fix creates a backup directory with the original files and adds a rollback script to that directory.

This backup directory is <HARVESTHOME>/PATCHES/<patch/fix>_BKP

Where <patch/fix> is of the form: HARvPATCHnnn or HARvPATCHnnnFIX, and
v is the <Harvest Version> and nnn is the <Patch Number>.

For example: HAR511PATCH005 refers to: Harvest 5.1.1, Patch 5.
HAR511PATCH005FIX refers to: Fix for Harvest 5.1.1, Patch 5.

The difference between HAR511PATCH005 and HAR511PATCH005FIX, is that the first refers to a publicly available PATCH (patch 5),
and the second refers to a set of intermediate FIXES available after the PATCH (patch 5).

Intermediate FIXES are always included in the next publicly available PATCH.

ApplyPATCH.sh/ApplyFIX.sh and ApplyPATCH.bat/ApplyFIX.bat only update files that already exist and DO NOT add new files.

****************************************************************
Patch installation
****************************************************************

----------------------------------------------------------------
UNIX installation
----------------------------------------------------------------

APPLY PATCH/FIX

1.- Logon to the Operating System using the UNIX Harvest account.
2.- Close all Harvest Client Applications.
3.- If this is a Harvest Server, Shutdown the Harvest Broker and all Harvest Server processes.
4.- If it does not exist, create the $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES directory.
5.- Copy the "<patch/fix>.tar.gz" file to $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES.
6.- Change the current directory to $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES.
7.- Decompress PATCH/FIX file using: "gzip -d <patch/fix>.tar.gz".
8.- Un-tar PATCH/FIX file using: "tar xvfo <patch/fix>.tar".
9.- If you have previously executed this same patch/fix, rename or remove any previous backup directory for this patch/fix.
10.- Change the current directory to $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix> directory created in previous step.
11.- Execute "ApplyPATCH.sh" or ApplyFIX.sh" script (only one is available).
12.- Review the PATCH.log file within $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix>_BKP directory.

ROLLBACK PATCH/FIX

1.- Logon to the system using the UNIX Harvest account.
2.- Close all Harvest Client Applications.
3.- If this is a Harvest Server, Shutdown the Harvest Broker and all Harvest Server processes.
4.- Change the current directory to the $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix>_BKP directory.
5.- Execute "RollbackUPDATE.sh" script.
6.- Review the PATCH.log file within $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix>_BKP directory.

NOTE: The Rollback process "explicitly" does not remove the backup directory.

----------------------------------------------------------------
WINDOWS installation
----------------------------------------------------------------

- PLEASE RUN this script within a DOS/Command window

- PLEASE CLOSE ALL YOUR WINDOWS APPLICATIONS; especially:
Windows Explorer and IDEs

- IF You encounter a SHARING VIOLATION ERROR when applying this patch, please:

(2) Do Not Start any Windows Applications, including Windows Explorer
(3) Rollback the PATCH/FIX
(4) Delete the <patch/fix>_BKP directory
(5) Reapply the patch/fix

APPLY PATCH/FIX

1.- Logon to the Operating System using the Local Administrator account.
2.- Close all Harvest Client Applications.
3.- If this is a Harvest Server, Shutdown the Harvest Broker and all Harvest Server processes.
4.- If it does not exist, create the %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES directory.
5.- Copy the "<patch/fix>.zip" file to %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES.
6.- Decompress "<patch/fix>.zip" file into %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES.
7.- Open a DOS/Command Window and perform the next steps within this window.

4.- Open a DOS/Command Window and perform the next steps within this window.
5.- Change the current directory to the %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES<patch/fix>_BKP directory.
6.- Execute "RollbackUPDATE.bat" script.
7.- Review the PATCH.log file within %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES<patch/fix>_BKP directory.

NOTE: The Rollback process "explicitly" does not remove the backup directory.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Database patch
----------------------------------------------------------------

This update is applicable only to the Harvest Server database.
It should be applied as part of the Harvest Server PATCH.
This procedure can be executed more than once, before or after the software PATCH, without any problems.
The Database PATCH is permanent, independent of the software PATCH and not intended to be rolled-back.

1.- Change the current directory to $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix> (UNIX) or %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES<patch/fix> (WINDOWS) directory.
2.- Apply Database PATCH using the Harvest Oracle account: sqlplus <account>/<password> @DBPatch.sql
3.- Review the DBPatch.log file within $HARVESTHOME/PATCHES/<patch/fix> (UNIX) or %HARVESTHOME%PATCHES<patch/fix> (WINDOWS) directory.

NOTE: Make sure to apply the Database Patch after completing a Harvest 4.1.x to Harvest 5.x Conversion.

569 - UNABLE TO DELETE PACKAGES CONTAINING EMPTY DIRECTORIES

To delete a package, one of the following conditions must be true:

1) The package is empty: it contains no file-versions and directories.

2) The package only contains empty directories created by this package:

- It only contains empty directories (directories with no files).
- All directories and subdirectories were created by this package.

In the case of condition 2, when such package is deleted, then all its
associated empty directories get deleted.

654 - UPGRADE ZLIB (Compression Library) FROM VERSION 1.1.3 TO VERSION 1.1.4

NOTE: Some 3rd party products install a customized version of zlib.dll into
the "system32" directory (Harvest installs an unmodified zlib.dll into the
Harvest directory to prevent any conflicts). This may prevent the user from
adding a new project to version control when using VCI. To resolve this problem,
the user must either copy the Harvest zlib.dll (1) into the IDE directory, or
(2) into the "system32" directory overwriting the 3rd party zlib.dll (you should
consult with that particular product vendor before making this change).

844 - APPLY/OK BUTTON BEHAVIOR IS INCONSISTENT ON HARVEST PROCESS DIALOGS

In a Harvest process dialog (for example: Checkout, Checkin, Promote, etc.), the OK button is always enabled.
If the dialog is in a valid process-execution state (ready to execute) then the APPLY button is enabled;
otherwise, the APPLY button is disabled. The CANCEL button is always enabled.

When the dialog is in a valid process-execution state, selecting the OK or APPLY button
executes the dialog's associated process.

When the dialog IS NOT in a valid process-execution state, selecting the OK button simply closes the dialog.

Selecting OK will always close the dialog.
Selecting APPLY will always keep the dialog open; additionally, as indicated below,
APPLY will clear certain dialog fields depending on the dialog's associated process:

- CheckIn/CheckOut: Version list
- Create Package: Package name
- Promote/Demote: Package list
- Take Snapshot: View name

903 - CHECKIN (DELETE AFTER CHECKIN OPTION) DOES NOT DELETE READ-ONLY FILES ON WINDOWS

User must have Read/Write/Delete file access to delete a read-only file.

925 - HARWEB CONTAINS HARVEST DATABASE USER/PASSWORD IN CLEAR TEXT

If the harweb.cfg file does not contain Harvest database user/password information,
then HarWeb will utilize the encrypted information within hsvr.dfo.

If the harweb.cfg file contains Harvest database user/password information,
then HarWeb will utilize the database user/password within harweb.cfg.

NOTE: If Harvest Server is not installed on the same machine as HarWeb,
then the "hsvr.dfo" file needs to be generated onto the HARVESTHOME directory
on the HarWeb machine using the "svrenc" utility.

930 - CHECKOUT FOR RESERVE FOLLOWED BY CHECKIN FOR RELEASE TRIES TO ACCESS FILES VIA A CLIENT-PATH

Checkout for Reserve does not require a client-path.

958 - HSIGGET RETURNS THE MODIFIED DATE/TIME AS A NUMBER

It now returns the modified date/time as MM/DD/YYYY;HH:MM:SS

981 - CHECKIN PROCESS FAILS WITH DESCRIPTIONS > 255 CHARACTERS

Maximum length of description fields is limited to 255 characters.
Maximum length of note fields remains limited to 2000 characters.

1008 - TEXT FILES WITH NO EXTENSION GET LOADED AS BINARY

If the <NONE> keyword is within a Repository's Text-Extension list,
all new files with no extension are treated as text;
if such keyword is not in the list, all new files with no extension are treated as binary.

1026 - WEBSPHERE INTEGRATION HANGS WHEN SYNCHRONIZING A STREAM

This fix requires JRE 1.3.1_03 or higher.

1062 - DELETING A REPOSITORY, FOLDER, OR VERSION LOCKS THE DATABASE

To obtain this fix, the database patch must be applied as instructed within the Database patch section.

Harvest (hsigget) command completed successfully.

1254 - IN WORKBENCH, PACKAGE/VERSION FILTER IN VERSION-CHOOSER WORKS INCORRECTLY

When Package filter is specified, 2 additional Version filter options are now available:

-LATEST_IN_PACKAGE
-ALL_IN_PACKAGE

When FIND is selected, then based on Version Filter:

-LATEST_IN_VIEW : Get latest version in View for Package Items
-ALL_IN_VIEW : Get all versions in View for Package Items
-ALL : Get all versions in Project for Package Items
-LATEST : Get latest version in Project for Package Items
-LATEST_IN_PACKAGE : Get latest version in PACKAGE for Package Items
-ALL_IN_PACKAGE : Get all versions in PACKAGE for Package Items

1320 - "Save to File" POPUP MENU OPTION IS MISLEADING

It has been changed to "Save List to File"

1367 - VERSION CHOOSER ALLOWS STATE PROCESSES ON VERSIONS NOT WITHIN THE CONTEXT'S STATE

If the version list is the result of a search based on Version-Filter set to: LATEST or ALL,
then processes (via Right-Click/OK) on selected versions are not permitted.

If the Context's Environment or State changes while there is an existing version list,
then processes (via Right-Click/OK) on selected versions are not permitted.

1391 - DELETE VERSION PROCESS DEGRADES AS NUMBER OF VERSIONS INCREASE

To obtain this fix, the database patch must be applied as instructed within the Database patch section.

1412 - VCI DISPLAYS MISLEADING MESSAGE WHEN CHECKIN FAILS

The following VCI Checkin Error Message has been changed:

FROM: "Can't check in Harvest File!"
TO: "Can not check in file(s) to Harvest. See the Harvest Session Log for details."

This type of error can occur when attempting to checkin a file that has not been previously checked-out.

1433 - IN HARWEB, REMOVING A FORM ASSOCIATION FROM A PACKAGE DOES NOT DELETE THE FORM

- HUP command-line utility has been expanded; a new switch -del has been added.
When removing package/form associations, via the -rf <form name> or -rfo <form object id> switches,
adding the -del switch will also delete the form if it is not associated with any other package.

- HarWeb has also been updated when removing package/form associations.
The system now prompts for confirmation to delete the form if it is not associated with any other package.

1434 - HARREFRESH QUERY TAKES LONG TIME

To obtain this fix, the database patch must be applied as instructed within the Database patch section.

1444 - PATCH VERSION LEVEL CANNOT BE IDENTIFIED

When applying a Harvest PATCH, a text-file named "HVersion.TXT" is now copied to the HARVESTHOME directory.
This file contains information on the Harvest version and PATCH-level.
