SUMMARY: Upgrading Solaris on an e10k domain.. (OBP version)..

Hello All,

	First I'd like to thank:
"Lumpkin, Buddy" for mentionning that the proposed procedure works but
that you must have a backup handy in case something happens to the files
under $SSPVAR/.ssp_private after the domain_remove.
"Justin Stringfellow" for also confirming that the procedure works.

However, I figured out from the ssp 3.4 answerbook that the supported
procedure is much more straightforward since you can simpy do a:

domain_rename -d <domain> -o 5.8 upgrade a domain to 5.8. I'll be using that solution.

Many thanks to all who responded; the domain_remove/domain_create
procedure provides an alternative if you have SSP 3.2 or below since the
existing domain_rename cmd cannot be used to change the OS level with
these older software packages..
