|Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Release Notes Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Information Library|
The following bugs might occur during or after the installation of the Oracle Solaris 10 OS.
When you perform a network based installation of Oracle Solaris 10 1/13, the following warning message is displayed:
WARNING: /usr/sbin/zfs mount -a failed: one or more file systems failed to mount
Ignore this warning message.
Installation of Oracle database 11 for RAC (Real Application Cluster) fails if the BIND version is 9.6–ESV-R8 or higher. The installation fails because the Oracle database installer uses the nslookup utility for determining the DNS response time for an unreachable node. The nslookup utility fails and the installation is terminated.
Workaround: Run the installer with the -force and the -ignorePrereq options. For example:
# ./runInstaller -silent -reponseFile /tmp/gird.rsp -force -ignorePrereq
For information on the workaround see bug 15912313.
Starting with the Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 release, you can use the luupgrade command to install a ZFS flash archive to an alternate boot environment. You can also get this feature on a system running Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 by applying the relevant patches listed for bug 15580098. However, installing a ZFS flash archive has the following limitations:
The master system on which the flash archive is created and the clone system on which the flash archive will be installed should be at the same kernel patch level. Otherwise, the flash archive installation might fail because of errors from zfs receive. For example, if a ZFS flash archive is created on a system that runs Oracle Solaris 10 8/11, ensure that the clone system is also at the Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 kernel patch level.
On systems that run on the Oracle Solaris 9/10 release, the flash archive installation will fail if the master system on which the flash archive is created has descendant datasets under the root dataset. For example, if the master system has a separate /var dataset, the ZFS flash archive created from the master system fails to install to an alternate boot environment on a system where the current boot environment is Oracle Solaris 10 9/10. However, this limitation does not apply to systems that run on the Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 release.
Note - Starting with the Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 release, ZFS flash archive installation to alternate boot environment is supported.
