Live Upgrade SF5.0MP3 to SF5.1SP1 need clarification about VRTSodm

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am planning an upgrade of Solaris 10 8/11 sparc server which by now has SF5.0MP3RP2 installed.

It is a system with zones, the root fs is on a SVM-ufs volume. We plan to move to SF5.1SP1 and Solaris 1/13 ie u11.

In a doc : sf_install_51sp1_sol.pdf in a chapter 17 section: "Supported upgrade paths for Live Upgrade"

there is a statement:

For Live Upgrade, if the alternative root environment also has a zone, you cannot
install VRTSodm. You must remove the VRTSodm package first then install the
Storage Foundation product. After you reboot the alternative root, you can install

But when I read the doc on the web:

I do not see any special info about VRTSodm there.

So my question is, which one is right ?

Does VRTSodm need that special treatment during Live Upgrade?

Thanks in advance

Hello Janusz,

The PDF guide is correct and the online version simply has the information in another section.

Please remove VRTSodm if it exists prior to your upgrade.
