Storage Foundation HA 6.1: Live Upgrade on Solaris 11
This video demonstrates a Live Upgrade on Solaris 11. SFHA Live Upgrade provides a method of upgrading SFHA while the system continues to operate. While your current boot environment is running, you can duplicate the boot environment and then upgrade the duplicate. When you are ready, you can activate the new boot environment by rebooting the system. If a failure occurs, you can quickly revert to the original boot environment with a simple reboot. This switch eliminates the normal downtime of the test and evaluation process.
You can get the following benefits from SFHA Live Upgrade on Solaris 11:
- SFHA Live Upgrade enables you to duplicate a boot environment without affecting the current running system.
- Upgrade the product with less downtime.
- Upgrade the product with less disk capacity.
