The upgrade progress bar does not appear when you use the Solaris Live Upgrade software in the following manner:
You use the Solaris 10 10/08 CD media to upgrade the OS.
You upgrade a boot environment by using the luupgrade command with the following options:
-i to install from the CD media
-O “-nodisplay -noconsole” to run the installer on the second CD in text mode and without user interaction
You are upgrading to the Solaris 10 10/08 software from the following releases:
Solaris 9 release
Solaris 10 release
For example, if you run the following command, the progress bar should be displayed after you see the following output:
Running installer on BE s10u1.
However, the bar fails to appear.
# luupgrade -i -n s10u1 -s /net/installsrv/export/s10u1 -O "-nodisplay -noconsole" Validating the contents of the media /net/installsvr/export/s10u1. The media is a standard Solaris media. The media contains a standard Solaris installer. The media contains Solaris 3 version 10. Mounting BE s10u1. Running installer on BE s10u1.
No error message is displayed.
Workaround: Use the prstat command. This command enables you to watch the progress while packages are being added during the installation.
