Last Friday 2/29 I decided to try Live Upgrade on my Solaris 10 Update 4 V480 Sparc box to apply about 50 or so patches with PCA (http://www.par.univie.ac.at/solaris/pca/).
# cat /etc/release Solaris 10 8/07 s10s_u4wos_12b SPARC Copyright 2007 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Use is subject to license terms. Assembled 16 August 2007 # uname -a SunOS ldap-global1 5.10 Generic_127111-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-480R My 2 internal drives are mirrored with SVM for the BE and ABE. I also have 2 sparse zones installed. I disabled the primary applications (Directory Proxy Server and Directory Server) in the respective zones and applied the following 2 patches first in the global zone of the BE with no errors. ./pca --install 119254-51 119254 50 < 51 RS- 15 SunOS 5.10: Install and Patch Utilities Patch ./pca --install 121430-22 121430 21 < 22 --- 15 SunOS 5.8 5.9 5.10: Live Upgrade Patch I then ran the following Live Upgrade and PCA commands with no errors. lumake -s sol10-2007-08 -n d2 lumount d2 ./pca -R /.alt.d2 --install luumount d2 lurename -e d2 -n sol10p-20080229 luactivate sol10p-20080229 init 6 The reboot seemed fine with no errors on the console. After logging in though I noticed that only 1 of my zones started up correctly ldap-global1:/ 124# zoneadm list -cv ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP 0 global running / native shared 9 ldap-proxy1 running /zones/ldap-proxy1 native shared - ldap-supplc incomplete /zones/ldap-supplc native shared ldap-global1:/ 125# zoneadm -z ldap-supplc boot zoneadm: zone 'ldap-supplc': must be installed before boot. Since it seems that the only way to resolve an "incomplete" zone is to uninstall and then install, I decided instead to luactivate the original BE and fallback to that instead. I didn't see any zone or patch errors in the /var/adm/messages file. Perhaps someone can give me a tip of where else to look for relevant error or log files? If more information on my system config is needed please let me know too. I would ultimately like to resolve this since applying patches with Live Upgrade seems very easy to do and provides a minimal amount of downtime.
