How to Upgrade a solaris10 Branded Zone in a Zone Cluster (interactive scinstall)

Perform the following steps for each configured zone-cluster node.

  1. Bring the zone cluster into an offline-running state.
    phys-schost# clzonecluster reboot -o zone-cluster
  2. Log in to the zone cluster.
    phys-schost# zlogin zone-cluster
  3. Change to the DVD image directory inside the zone.

    You must run the scinstall utility from the latest DVD directory. For example:

    zchost# cd /net/my-machine/export/dvd/Solaris_arch/Product/sun_cluster/Solaris_10/Tools/

    In the path, arch is sparc or x86.

  4. Start the scinstall utility.
    zchost# pwd 
    zchost# ./scinstall
  5. Choose the Upgrade This Cluster Node menu item.

    The Upgrading Oracle Solaris Cluster on This Node menu is displayed.

  6. Follow the menu prompts to upgrade the solaris10 branded zone on this zone cluster node.

    This action upgrades the Oracle Solaris Cluster framework and data service agents on this node.

  7. Quit the scinstall utility.
