You can use alternate methods for creating the archive. The installer can accept the following archive formats:
gzip compressed cpio archives
bzip2 compressed cpio archives
pax archives created with the –x xustar (XUSTAR) format
ufsdump level zero (full) backups
Additionally, the installer can only accept a directory of files created by using an archiving utility that saves and restores file permissions, ownership, and links.
The mountpoints to unmount vary by architecture and release of Oracle Solaris 10. You must grep the mountpoints for libc and umount any that exist. After you have created the archive, you can remount the proper hardware capabilities by restarting the filesystem/root service.
Determine optimized libc mountpoints.
source-system# mount | egrep '(libc_psr.so.1|libc.so.1)'
umount any exisitinglibc mountpoints.
SPARC command examples:
source-system# umount /platform/sun4v/lib/libc_psr.so.1 source-system# umount /platform/sun4v/lib/sparcv9/libc_psr.so.1
x86 command example:
source-system# umount /lib/libc.so.1
Create an archive of the Oracle Solaris 10 system.
Restart the filesystem/root service .
source-system# svcadm restart svc:/system/filesystem/root:default
