Perform this procedure to update each node of the cluster to Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 software and, if necessary, update the Oracle Solaris software. You must also perform this procedure if you only updated to a different marketing release of the Oracle Solaris OS, such as from Oracle Solaris 11.3 to Oracle Solaris 11.4 software.
Perform all steps from the global zone only.
Before You Begin
Perform the following tasks:
Ensure that all steps in How to Prepare the Cluster for Update (Dual-Partition) are completed.
Ensure that the node you are updating belongs to the partition that is not active in the cluster and that the node is in noncluster mode.
For immutable zone clusters, ensure that on each node of the partition you are updating, you reboot the immutable zone cluster's zone (on that node) to writable mode using the following command:
. zoneadm -z <zonecluster name> reboot -w
When the partition nodes are rebooted the immutable zone-cluster nodes will boot back to read-only mode.
# pkg set-publisher -p URL_for_ha-cluster_repository
# pkg publisher PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS P LOCATION solaris origin online F ha-cluster-repository solaris origin online F solaris-repository ha-cluster origin online F ha-cluster-repository
For information about setting the solaris publisher, see Adding, Modifying, or Removing Package Publishers in Updating Systems and Adding Software in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
The scinstall Main Menu is displayed.
The Update Menu is displayed.
Update processing is finished when the system displays the message Completed Oracle Solaris Cluster framework update and prompts you to press Enter to continue.
To disable LOFS, ensure that the /etc/system file contains the following entry:
This change becomes effective at the next system reboot.
View the update log file that is referenced at the end of the update output messages.
For instructions on updating your software, see Overview of the Installation and Configuration Process in Planning and Administering Data Services for Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.
Ensure that application levels are compatible with the current versions of Oracle Solaris Cluster and Oracle Solaris software. See your application documentation for installation instructions.
The scinstall Main Menu is displayed.
The command performs the following tasks, depending on which partition the command is run from:
First partition - The command halts each node in the second partition, one node at a time. When a node in the second partition is halted, any services on that node are automatically switched over to a node in the first partition, provided that the node list of the related resource group contains a node in the first partition. After all nodes in the second partition are halted, the nodes in the first partition are booted into cluster mode and take over providing cluster services.
Caution - Do not reboot any node of the first partition again until after the update is completed on all nodes. If you again reboot a node of the first partition before the second partition is updated and rebooted into the cluster, the update might fail in an unrecoverable state.
Second partition - The command boots the nodes in the second partition into cluster mode, to join the active cluster that was formed by the first partition. After all nodes have rejoined the cluster, the command performs final processing and reports on the status of the update.
Otherwise, if you are finishing update of the second partition, proceed to Step 16.
ok boot -x
