SUMMARY: UPDATE: Live Upgrade Help

Hi Gurus,

Well I was playing with this and found that if you don't use jumpstart
profile to upgrade from Solaris2.6 to Solaris 8 it works. However if I
use jumpstart profile switch -j it gives "Segmentation Fault". Other
issue is if I install the patch cluster after Live Upgrade it ends with
"Segmentation Fault". I haven't found the solution this. If I find one I
will post the Summary. Gurus if you have solution to this problem please
do share with me.

Here is my command to patch the live upgrade:

luupgrade -t -n "Solaris_8" \

-s /opt/install/config/patches/Solaris2.8_Latest_090505/8_Recommended -O
"-M /opt/install/config/patches/Solaris2.8_Latest_090505/8_Recommended


Checking installed patches...

Re-installing patch 117350-27...

One or more patch packages included in

117350-27 are not installed on this system.

Patchadd is terminating.

Unmounting the BE <Solaris_8>.

The patch add to the BE <Solaris_8> completed.

Segmentation Fault

Warm Regards

Hi Gurus,

I figured out the problem. It was typo in the lucreate command near /opt
(s was missing) .After rectifying that I was able to create BE but while
in upgrade process it failed with error "segmentation fault".

luupgrade -u -n "Solaris_8" -s /install/Solaris_28_503/ -j


Creating upgrade profile for BE <Solaris_8>.

Updating ABE's /etc/vfstab file.

The update of the vfstab file on the ABE succeeded.

Determining packages to install or upgrade for BE <Solaris_8>.

Performing the operating system upgrade of the BE <Solaris_8>.

CAUTION: Interrupting this process may leave the boot environment

or unbootable.

Segmentation Fault

The operating system patch installation completed.

The Solaris upgrade of the BE <Solaris_8> failed.

Any help/pointer will be greatly appreciated. I will summarize.

Hi Gurus,

This is my first Live Upgrade so please bear with me if my questions

sound silly.

I am trying to do live upgrade from Solaris 2.6 to Solaris 8 and ran

into following error:

# lucreate -c "Solaris_26" -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0:ufs -m


ufs -m /var:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s4:ufs -m /opt:/dev/dsk/c0t1d06:ufs -m


1d0s1:swap -m /home:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s5 -n "Solaris_8"

Please wait while your system configuration is determined.

No name for Current BE.

Current BE is named <Solaris_26>.

Creating initial configuration for primary BE <Solaris_26>.

PBE configuration successful: PBE name <Solaris_26> PBE Boot Device


Determining what file systems should be in the new BE.

Searching /dev for possible BE filesystem devices

luconfig: ERROR: Template filesystem definition failed for /opt..

ERROR: Configuration of BE failed.

I did the flowing steps to create a boot environment:

1) Install Latest patch Cluster on Target Box

2) Install SUNWluu and SUNWlur from Solaris 8 CD to target box.

3) Created partition on Target box on second Disk

4) Mount Jumstart /opt/install to target box as /install

5) Ran lucreate to create a boot environment on target box second disk

as below:

# lucreate -c "Solaris_26" -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0:ufs -m


ufs -m /var:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s4:ufs -m /opt:/dev/dsk/c0t1d06:ufs -m


1d0s1:swap -m /home:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s5 -n "Solaris_8"

1) Do I need to create a file system with newfs? Or just partition will


2) On Jumpstart Box what steps I need to follow besides creating a

profile file which contains - "install_type upgrade" ?

3) How do I select cluster type? Cluster SUNWCall?

4) How do I select the Patch Cluster for Solaris 8 on jumpstart Box?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
