Upgrading Solaris 10u3 to u4 8/07
05/12/2017 14:54
Hi all, I have this workstation uname -a SunOS blade1500 5.10 Generic_118833-33 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-1500 and just inserted Solaris 10 U4 8/07 DVD in it and started to upgrade using the GUI. It fails just at the beginning of the installation. The detail button is completely useless as it shows the log upgrade_log file from the previous upgrade in March.

My question is, if there is any prerequisite or patche that I have to install before start to upgrade or there is a problem with upgrading u3 11/06 to u4.

I must mention that I have two zones whose root are on ZFS but I don't see any error in that regard.

Thanks for any information, Vahid.

Once I moved the zones from ZFS to UFS, this are fine now, even LU is working. Never got the chance to try the GUI again.

I hope U4 supports zone on ZFS upgrade.

Thanks,

Thanks, I will try it this Tuesday and post the result.

I had this problem a few weeks back - also on my sb1500
