hi in doing an OS upgrade from s10u5 to s10u8 I try to use zoneadm detach then upgrade OS then attach the system doesnot allow attach -U ...no such options but the man page in u8 say http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19253-01/816-5166/6mbb1kqoa/index.html
attach [*-u* | *-U*] [*-b* patchid]... [*-F*] [*-n* path] [brand-specific options]The attach subcommand takes a zone that has been detached from one system and attaches the zone onto a new system. Therefore, it is advised (though not required) that the detach subcommand should be run before the “attach” takes place. Once you have the new zone in the configured state, use the attach subcommand to set up the zone root instead of installing the zone as a new zone. For native zones, zoneadm checks package and patch levels on the machine to which the zone is to be attached. If the packages/patches that the zone depends on from the global zone are different (have different revision numbers) from the dependent packages/patches on the source machine, zoneadm reports these conflicts and does not perform the attach. If the destination system has only newer dependent packages/patches (higher revision numbers) than those on the source system, you can use the *-u* or *-U* options. The *-u* option updates the minimum number of packages within the attached zone to match the higher-revision packages and patches that exist on the new system. The *-U* option updates all packages in the attached zone that are also installed in the global zone. With *-u* or *-U*, as in the default behavior, zoneadm does not perform an attach if outdated packages/patches are found on the target system.
So which version of s10u? can use -U or do one need some patch? TIA
