  1. Live upgrade failure: Solaris 10 -> Solaris 10 update 1.

    I'm trying to update my Ultra 80 from Solaris 10 to Solaris 10 update 1.

    This is what I did.

    1) downloaded the DVD image parts
    2) Unziped and created the iso image. The md5 checksum agrees with one I
    found on the web. (Why don't Sun put them on a web page???)

    % /usr/local/bin/md5sum /mnt2/sol10-u1.iso
    3993081fd5d8cde9c065f5ff584a8d17 /mnt2/sol10-u1.iso

    3) Put the DVD iso on a SPARC 20,
    4) used lofiadm on the SS20 to make the iso available as a file system.
    5) Shared the file system.
    6) created the boot environment solenv2, which went without problems.
    This used another disk system to be upgraded.

    Now the problem:

    # luupgrade -u -n solenv2 -s /net/192.168.0.239/sol10/

    symbol zonecfg_set_root: referenced symbol not found
    The Solaris upgrade of the boot environment failed.


    The error message makes me think that might be related to zone problem,
    but there are no zones installed.

    # zoneadm list -v
    ID NAME STATUS PATH
    0 global running /

    To be fair, there were zones installed for test purposes and perhaps
    there were not removed as cleanly as possible. The one I found running
    last night I removed in the correct way, before attempting the live upgrade.

    There are no 3rd party packages installed, although one for a National
    Instruments GPIB board was installed at one point, but has never worked
    properly. I removed that before trying the upgrade.

    Any thoughts?

    Funny you mention this, since the problem and resolution was discussed
    here a few days ago.

    On the DVD, look for a directory named Solaris_10/UpgradePatches
    relative to the DVD root directory.

    You'll need one or more patches from it installed first.

    I don't recall patch ID numbers offhand, but you should be able to find
    it in recent discussions here.

    # patchadd /cdrom/sol_10_106_sparc/s0/Solaris_10/UpgradePatches/120900-03

    was all that I needed. After that, the upgrade proceeded normally.
    I'm quite impressed with LU.

    Found the directory, complete with 301 patches.

    Does anyone know what patches one needs to apply on *SPARC*? You need a
    Sun contract to get infodoc 72099 which has the patch list. Someone
    posted the x86 patches as you say, but I have not seen a list for SPARC.

    Looking up the x86 patches and finding the SPARC equivalents (where I
    could find them), it looks like one might need

    119254
    119317
    120900
    120235

    all of which are on the DVD image

    # ls -ld 119254* 119317* 120900* 120235*
    drwxrwxr-x 4 root staff 2048 Dec 7 16:29 119254-14
    drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 2048 Dec 7 16:29 119317-01
    drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 2048 Dec 7 16:29 120235-01
    drwxrwxr-x 5 root staff 2048 Dec 7 16:29 120900-03

    I'll try with those installed. If anyone has the complete SPARC list,
    perhaps they will post them.

    live_upgrade(5) mentions infodoc 72099, which has the complete list.
    That list includes (for Solaris 10):

    Solaris 10 OS SPARC

    S10 FCS sparc 119254-13 or higher patchadd/patchrm patches
    S10 FCS sparc 119317-01 or higher SVr4 Packaging Commands (usr) Patch
    S10 FCS sparc 120900-03 or higher SUNWzoneu required patch
    S10 FCS sparc 121333-02 or higher SUNWzoneu required patch
    S10 FCS sparc 121430-02 or higher SUNWlur/SUNWluu required for S10
    S10 FCS sparc 120235-01 or higher SUNWluzone required patches
    S10 FCS sparc 121428-01 or higher SUNWluzone required patches

    Solaris 10 OS x86

    S10 FCS x86 119255-13 or higher patchadd/patchrm patches
    S10 FCS x86 119318-01 or higher SVr4 Packaging Commands (usr) Patch
    S10 FCS x86 117435-01 or higher biosdev patch for GRUB Boot

    Oops, I did not have that!

    > S10 FCS sparc 121430-02 or higher SUNWlur/SUNWluu required for S10


    or that

    > S10 FCS sparc 120235-01 or higher SUNWluzone required patches
    > S10 FCS sparc 121428-01 or higher SUNWluzone required patches


    or that.

    I seem to have hit a problem after the upgrade - but that's for another
    post.
