Perform this procedure to remove the cluster from production before you perform a standard upgrade. Performing a standard upgrade also upgrades the Oracle Solaris OS to the latest compatible version. Perform all steps from the global zone only.
Before You Begin
Perform the following tasks:
Ensure that the configuration meets the requirements for upgrade. See Upgrade Requirements and Software Support Guidelines.
Have available the installation media, documentation, and software updates for all software products that you are upgrading, including the following software:
Oracle Solaris OS
Oracle Solaris Cluster
Applications that are managed by Oracle Solaris Cluster data services
Any other third-party applications to upgrade
For instructions on updating single or multiple packages, see Chapter 11, Updating Your Software, in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
If you use role-based access control (RBAC) instead of the root role to access the cluster nodes, ensure that you can become an administrator with rights for all Oracle Solaris Cluster commands. This series of upgrade procedures requires the following Oracle Solaris Cluster RBAC authorizations if the user is not the root role:
See User Rights Management in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 for more information about using RBAC roles. See the Oracle Solaris Cluster man pages for the RBAC authorization that each Oracle Solaris Cluster subcommand requires.
