Performing a Rolling Update

This chapter provides procedures to perform a rolling upgrade of an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 release to the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 release, from the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 release to a newer Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 SRU, or from a compatible Oracle Solaris 11 release to a newer Oracle Solaris 11 release or SRU.

In a rolling update, you update one cluster node at a time, while the other cluster nodes remain in production. After all nodes are updated and have rejoined the cluster, you must commit the cluster to the new software version before you can use any new features.

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