Updating solaris 10

After that, patching the system is a simple case of faster than previous versions of Solaris.I haven’t had much experience with IPS yet, and couldn’t find many good resources out there for sysadmins (as opposed to packagers).

updating solaris 10-22

Solaris has always been a bit quirky, but it had a few surprises in store for me. The first little surprise is to be found in Oracle’s document Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11: There are no upgrade methods or tools available to transition from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.

Hopefully this post will mitigate the shock of those planning a move to 11. You cannot use an installer to upgrade from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.

I admit to being entirely ignorant of the reasons behind this decision, but it seems very odd to me.

What’s more, users of Solaris 11 Express have been having all sorts of problems upgrading to the release version.

Our monthly report generation acitivity ran 3 days i.e may 11,12,13 and application team complained of degraded performance. I have a question regarding installing recommended patch clusters via ZFS snapshots. Hello, As explained, I've encountered an issue while installing Solaris 10 SPARC Recommended Patch Cluster (20).

Someone wrote a pretty good blog about it here: Initial Program Load: Live Upgrade to install the recommended patch cluster on a ZFS snapshot The person's article is similar to what I've done in the past. I'm trying to setup our jumpstart server to automatically apply the latest patch cluster during installs, but I'm running into an issue. Obviously it's processing the patch_order file, so I'm not sure what I'm missing. Hi Admins, I came across an error while installing patch cluster on solaris. Hi there, Apologies if this question has been asked and answered already but I've not been able to find the thread. In other words, you can virtualise your Solaris 10 system inside Solaris 11, but that’s the closest thing there is to an upgrade.Given that Solaris 10 will get patched until January 2018, do you really want to do this now?After years of unbearably slow patching and terrible package dependency handling, the packaging and patching system used in every previous version of Solaris has finally been replaced.The headline ‘gotchas’: and friends are still there for legacy packages, but the preferred method for managing software is to use the ‘Image Packaging System’ (IPS).Apparently there’s a GUI (I haven’t tried it), but on the command line everything centres around the command.
