Thread: Solaris 10 release from 03/05 to 01/06 - Beginner Questions

  1. Solaris 10 release from 03/05 to 01/06 - Beginner Questions

    We have two production Sun servers, one is running Solaris 10 (03/05)
    release and another Solaris 10 (01/06) release. We also run Veritas
    Volume Manger/File System 4.1 and root disk is encapsulated and
    mirrored. Both servers are running the latest kernel patch -
    118833-22.

    How and where can we find out what O.S. stuffs are in 01/06 release and
    not in 03/05 release ? How does one do upgrade from 03/05 release to
    01/06 release ? Is it worth doing the release upgrade ? Our goal is to
    minimize the impact and server downtime.

    You advice is most appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bill
