Performing a Dual-Partition Update of a Cluster

The following table lists the tasks to update to Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 software or to a 4.4 SRU. By default, all Oracle Solaris packages are automatically updated.

Note -  If you update the Oracle Solaris OS to a new marketing release, such as from Oracle Solaris 11.3 to Oracle Solaris 11.4, you must also update the Oracle Solaris Cluster software and dependency software to the version that is compatible with the new OS version.
