Before upgrading to Portal Server 7 software on the Solaris platform, perform the following pre-upgrade steps:
Verify that the web container and web container Admin Server are running.
Verify that the following values are set:
ANT_HOME is set to a valid Ant installation path.
JAVA_HOME is set to a Java Development Kit (JDK) v1.4.2 or higher.
AM and AM SDK are at the Java Enterprise System Release 4 level.
On Solaris, after Access Manager upgrade to Java Enterprise System 4, verify that the revision of SUNWamsdkconfig is 7.0 by issuing the command pkginfo -x SUNWamsdkconfig. If value is not set to 7.0, edit file /var/sadm/pkg/SUNWamsdkconfig/pkginfo file. Set the version as 7.0 (VERSION=7.0,...). Reset to the original value after upgrade.
If you upgrade the gateway, the Netlet Proxy, or the Rewriter Proxy, verify that these components are stopped before starting the upgrade.
On a node on which Portal Server is not installed—that is, the gateway, Netlet Proxy, or Rewriter Proxy only node—edit PortalServer6.3.1-base/lib/SRAversion.properties. Change the line with productversion= to with version=. Reset to the original value after the upgrade.
See to perform an upgrade on a gateway-only node.
