If you are running Veritas Storage Foundation Cluster File System High Availability 6.0 with an earlier release of the Solaris operating system, you can upgrade the Solaris operating system using the following procedure.
The directory /opt must exist, be writable, and must not be a symbolic link. This is because the volumes not temporarily converted by the upgrade_start are unavailable during the upgrade process. If you have a symbolic link from /opt to one of the unconverted volumes, the symbolic link will not function during the upgrade and items in /opt will not be installed.
To upgrade the Solaris operating system only
# init S
You must mount /opt manually if /opt is on its own partition.
# cd /mount_point/scripts
# ./upgrade_start -check
# init 0
You should boot up the system from run level 0 depending on the Solaris upgrade procedure that you want to follow. Refer to the Solaris installation documentation for instructions on how to upgrade the Solaris operating system.
See the Veritas Storage Foundation Cluster File System High Availability Release Notes.
# init S
To reinstall the required packages, follow the steps below:
Remove the existing packages in the reverse order of their installation. For example, if you chose the installation of all packages and patches then uninstall those in the following order.
# pkgrm VRTSsfmh VRTSodm VRTSgms VRTScavf VRTSglm VRTSdbed VRTSvcsea VRTSvcsag VRTScps VRTSvcs VRTSamf VRTSvxfen VRTSgab VRTSllt VRTSat VRTSfssdk VRTSvxfs VRTSob VRTSaslapm VRTSvxvm VRTSspt VRTSperl VRTSvlic
Run the following commands.
To obtain a list of recommended packages to install:
# ./installsfcfsha -recpkgs
To obtain a list of all packages to install:
# ./installsfcfsha -allpkgs
Change to the directory containing the appropriate packages.
# cd /mount_point/pkgs
Use the pkgadd command to install the packages from the list you generated.
Reboot the system.
