    Live Upgrade Question

      Good Morning,

      Sorry if posting this in the wrong forum.

      We are just starting to use Live Upgrade on our systems and so far, it has worked very well. I have been able to upgrade all of our Solaris systems from S10U6 to S10U10 without any issues.

      But I do have a question. We are running the Oracle Communications Suite (formally JES) in multiple zones on a system. It works great. But now, since we have Live Upgrade working, we want to start patching each of the zones with the proper update for Communications Suite. Below is an example of what we have. We have a Global zone and 4 Whole NGZ for each piece of the Suite (LDAP, Web, Mail and Calendar):

      Filesystem size used avail capacity Mounted on
      134G 9.5G 101G 9% /
      /devices 0K 0K 0K 0% /devices
      ctfs 0K 0K 0K 0% /system/contract
      proc 0K 0K 0K 0% /proc
      mnttab 0K 0K 0K 0% /etc/mnttab
      swap 5.9G 456K 5.9G 1% /etc/svc/volatile
      objfs 0K 0K 0K 0% /system/object
      sharefs 0K 0K 0K 0% /etc/dfs/sharetab
      111G 9.5G 101G 9% /platform/sun4v/lib/libc_psr.so.1
      111G 9.5G 101G 9% /platform/sun4v/lib/sparcv9/libc_psr.so.1
      fd 0K 0K 0K 0% /dev/fd
      swap 5.9G 40K 5.9G 1% /tmp
      swap 5.9G 72K 5.9G 1% /var/run
      134G 22K 101G 1% /export
      134G 2.3G 101G 3% /export/home
      rpool-queenfish 134G 96K 101G 1% /rpool-queenfish
      zfs-caltst/zcaltst 20G 7.8G 4.9G 62% /zones/zcaltst
      zfs-ldaptst/zldaptst 20G 6.2G 8.9G 42% /zones/zldaptst
      zfs-webtst/zwebtst 20G 6.8G 8.6G 45% /zones/zwebtst
      zfs-mailtst/zmailtst 78G 15G 54G 23% /zones/zmailtst

      I have created an ABE so that I can perform the upgrade to each zone used in Communication Suite:
      bash-3.2# lustatus
      Boot Environment Is Active Active Can Copy
      Name Complete Now On Reboot Delete Status
      -------------------------- -------- ------ --------- ------ ----------
      S10u6 yes no no yes -
      S10u10 yes yes yes no -
      S10u10-mailupgrade yes no no yes -

      lumount S10U10-mailupgrade

      df -h
      zfs-caltst/zcaltst-S10u10-mailupgrade 20G 7.8G 4.9G 62% /.alt.S10u10-mailupgrade/zones/zcaltst-S10u10-mailupgrade
      zfs-ldaptst/zldaptst-S10u10-mailupgrade 20G 6.1G 8.9G 41% /.alt.S10u10-mailupgrade/zones/zldaptst-S10u10-mailupgrade
      zfs-mailtst/zmailtst-S10u10-mailupgrade 78G 15G 54G 22% /.alt.S10u10-mailupgrade/zones/zmailtst-S10u10-mailupgrade
      zfs-webtst/zwebtst-S10u10-mailupgrade 20G 6.7G 8.6G 44% /.alt.S10u10-mailupgrade/zones/zwebtst-S10u10-mailupgrade

      I know that I can mount the ABE and install a patch, but how do I installed a patch in a particular zone(i.e. I don't want to installed a Mail Patch in the LDAP zone).

      I have been looking for the past couple of days and can seem to find anything.

      Any help would be appreciated!!

      Thanks in advance!!
