Performing a Rolling Upgrade

This chapter provides procedures to perform a rolling upgrade of an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 release to a newer Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 SRU, or to upgrade Oracle Solaris 11 to a newer Oracle Solaris 11 SRU. In a rolling upgrade, you upgrade one cluster node at a time, while the other cluster nodes remain in production. After all nodes are upgraded and have rejoined the cluster, you must commit the cluster to the new software version before you can use any new features.

Note - Oracle Solaris Cluster software does not support rolling upgrade to Oracle Solaris Cluster software from a previous marketing release. You can only perform an Oracle Solaris Cluster rolling upgrade of Oracle Solaris Cluster or Oracle Solaris software to an update of the same marketing release.

To upgrade an Oracle Solaris Cluster configuration from an earlier marketing release of Oracle Solaris software, use another upgrade method. See Choosing an Oracle Solaris Cluster Upgrade Method to determine the best upgrade method for your configuration.

This chapter provides the following information to upgrade an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 configuration to a new SRU of the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 software or to an SRU of the Oracle Solaris OS by using the rolling upgrade method:
