Solaris 10 live upgrade from Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 s10x_u9wos_14a x86 to Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 s10x_u11wos_24a x86

1.If you intend not to register the system

#regadm status
#regadm disable

2. Download and mount the sol-10-u11-ga-x86-dvd.iso

After you inserted the DVD
#mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0  /media

Mount iso file directly
#lofiadm -a /tmp/sol-10-u11-ga-x86-dvd.iso /dev/lofi/1
#mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /mnt

3.Remove the package and install the latest package from the dvd image
#pkgrm SUNWlucfg SUNWluu SUNWlur
#cd /media/Solaris_10/Tools/Installers
#./liveupgrade20 -noconsole - nodisplay

4.Check the packages
#pkgchk -v SUNWlucfg SUNWlur SUNWluu

5. Current the system using SCSI drive with root partition - /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0

6. I gonna add one more SCSI HDD to the solaris box - /dev/dsk/c1t1d0

/dev/rdsk/c0d0s0 - IDE Drive (/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0,s1,s3,s4,s5,s6,s7) s2=overlap,s7=/export/home
/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 - SCSI Drive
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0 - DVD Drive

Check current drive status
# ls /dev/rdsk/*s0


#drvconfig ( configure the /devices directory )

#disks ( creates /dev entries for hard disks attached to the system )

Check again for new HDD
#ls /dev/rdsk/*s0

To format and partition the HDD
# format
Choose new HDD to format

format >  fdisk
No fdisk table exists. The default partition for the disk is:
a 100% “SOLARIS System” partition
Type “y” to accept the default partition, otherwise type “n” to edit the
partition table.

format > partition

partition > print (Please Mark the Cylinder number)

partition > 0
Part Tag Flag Cylinders Size Blocks
0 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0

Enter partition id tag[unassigned]:
Enter partition permission flags[wm]:
Enter new starting cyl[0]: 1
Enter partition size[0b, 0c, 1e, 0.00mb, 0.00gb]: 1gb - depends on Cylinder Size

partition > print

partition > label
Ready to label disk, continue? y

partition > quit
format > quit

#newfs /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0
newfs: construct a new file system /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0: (y/n)? y

#fsck /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0

7. Setup the partitions on the new disk to be identical to the current system.

#prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0

Optional: no need to do the automount / we just want to use /dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0
Next, add the proper line to /etc/vfstab:

/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0 /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0 /data ufs 2 yes -

And then mount the partition. In this case, I’m making a /data partition:

# mkdir /data
# mount /data
# df -h /data

8. Creating a BE with name solenv2 and naming the current BE as solenv1, the merged keyword is used to indicate that we are merging it with the parent FS.

#lucreate -c solenv1 -m /:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0:ufs -m /var:merged:ufs -n solenv2

example -
#lucreate -c solenv1 -m /:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0:ufs -m -:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s1:swap -n solenv2

/var = separate partition and gonna merge

OR just make

#lucreate -c solenv1 -m /:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0:ufs -n solenv2

9. Before you run luupgrade command you need to disable autoreg
echo "autoreg=disable" >  /var/tmp/no-autoreg

10. Run update from the DVD
#luupgrade -u -k /var/tmp/no-autoreg -n solenv2 -s /media/

11. check the Live upgrade status

solenv1   yes       yes          yes           no        -
solenv2   yes       no            no          yes        -

12.Check current boot BE

13.Activate the BE solenv2
#luactivate solenv2

14.Reboot the system with 'init 6'

After reboot the system   /etc/release
It must show
Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 s10x_u11wos_24a X86

16.Check and save the patch compatibility with
#showrev -p -  showrev.lst

17#Now you can delete solenv2
#ludelete -F solenv2
