Updating Your System From Oracle Solaris 11.2 to Oracle Solaris 11.3

Use the pkg command-line utility to update from Oracle Solaris 11.2 to Oracle Solaris 11.3. If Oracle Solaris 11.2 is installed, with or without SRUs, no special steps are required to update the system.

How to Update a System From Oracle Solaris 11.2 to Oracle Solaris 11.3

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. Ensure that you are using a repository that contains the Oracle Solaris 11.3 packages.

    This repository can either be the Oracle repositories or a copy of the repository that can be created by downloading the ISO images.

    1. Choose one of the following:
      • If you have not set your publisher to the beta repository, skip to Step 3.
      • If you want to use the support repository, type the following command:
        # pkg set-publisher -k ssl_key_file -c ssl_cert_file \
        -G  http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/* -g \
        https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/support solaris
        

        To obtain the SSL certificate and key, go to the https://pkg-register.oracle.com/ site, click Request Certificates, and follow the instructions.

    2. If you want to use the release repository, type the following command:
      # pkg set-publisher -G http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/* \
      -g http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/release solaris
  3. Review licenses of the Oracle Solaris 11.3 OS.
    # pkg update --license|less
  4. If you agree with the license terms, update the system with Oracle Solaris 11.3 packages.
    # pkg update --accept
  5. Reboot using the updated boot environment.
    # reboot
