 Solaris upgrade 10/00 to 02/02 possible?

Hi all,

I am runnig different SUN boxes with Solaris-8 Revision 10/00.
Now I need to install a software on them which requires revision 02/02,
how do I upgrade my boxes without reinstalling from scratch?

Any help would be kind,

        regards, Joerg.

Can't you just patch your machines up?, does the newer
revisions contain anything that can't be patched up ?

This is the problem, I don't know what patches the new software
really need? I thought there might be a kind of "revision-upgrade-cluster"
or something similar ...

If the software packages that are installed already are sufficient for
your software, you could install Maintenance Update 7, which corresponds
to the 02/02 release of Solaris 8. This would meet your idea of
"revision-upgrade-cluster"...
Followed by a latest recommended patch cluster as well. That should
bring your server up to the most current state.

But there are a few packages that have been added since 10/00 release,
so if you need those, you will have to get the CD media for 02/02, and
install selectively.
This procedure is generally no problem to complete. But as always, keep
your backups current...

My $0.25,
Andreas

Installing Maintenance Update 7 should work.  If you have the 02/02 CDs,
you can also do an upgrade install.  You would need to boot from the
Solaris 8 Software 1 of 2 disk and you should be presented with the option
to upgrade (you may have to answer a bunch of questions first).  The
upgrade install will be faster and will add in any new features released
since 10/00.

: install the mandatory update CD

MU stands for "Maintenance Update", not "Mandatory Update".

The updates also contain new features that can't be patched into existance.

You can upgrade. You can either, insert 2/02 cdrom in drive and boot
from it, and select upgrade. Or you can insert the 2/02 cdrom in the
drive, install the live upgrade packages and live upgrade the system.

The nice thing about the lu is that if there are problems, all you need
to do is reboot back to the original os.

        If you've followed SUN's recommended procedures to the letter, you can't.
  Your disks are not partitioned correctly.  You'll have to reinstall.
It is the SUN way.

        No problem.

        Hope this helps,
                Don

Obviously they are not at www.ibm.com, can you be more precise ?

Or just post them ? You obviously read them

kind regards,

Just insert CD 1/2, type boot cdrom. After some initial questions, you are
asked, if you want to install news or upgrade. Select upgrade, and your system
will be upgraded to 02/02.

It is not really faster than installing from scratch, but it will keep your
configuration.

An upgrade takes less disk space than installing the Maintenance Update
because the upgrade does not save all the changed files.

        No, you have to look at the SUN site, not the IBM one.

        Just purchase a system from SUN.  It will be factory loaded as per their
recommended procedures.

                Hope this helps,
                        Don
