    which patch to apply when live upgrading to a new OS

    988801
      Hello Guys,

      when you use live upgrade to upgrade to a new OS level , which patches do you apply before performing the upgrade? I used prerequired patches from 10REC when performing a live upgrade patching . Do you use these same prerequired patches when upgrading to a NEW OS LEVEL?

      Your response will be truely appreciated.

      Thanks

          Please clear what exactly you want.

          Required patch depend from start state of you system and what you want got on finish state.

          You can't get new OS level by installed some patches.

          Regards.

            Thanks for the reply. Let me clarify:

            As I was studying, I read that you have to apply some patches before you perform an upgrade. As well as removing the current live upgrade packages and replacing them with the ones of the new OS level.

            Say you want to upgrade from solaris 9 to solaris 10 1/13 . You need the S10 1/13 DVD and the prerequired patches. Oracle documentation and the book I am studying says that, you have to install the preupgrade patches before you can perform the upgrade.

            My question is this?

            1. Where do you get the preugrade patches from ?
            2. Are these preupgrade patches included in the 10REC of solaris 10 1/13 ? (from example above)

            Thanks alot.

              Ensure that you have the most recently updated patch list by consulting http://support.oracle.com (My Oracle Support). Search for the knowledge document 1004881.1 - Live Upgrade Software Patch Requirements (formerly 206844) on My Oracle Support.

              The patches listed in knowledge document 1004881.1 - Live Upgrade Software Patch Requirements (formerly 206844) on My Oracle Support are subject to change at any time.

If you experience any difficulties with Live Upgrade, please check and make sure that you have the latest Live Upgrade patches installed.

              If you are running the Solaris 8 or Solaris 9 OS, you might not be able to run the Live Upgrade installer. These releases do not contain the set of patches needed to run the Java 2 runtime environment. You must have the recommended patch cluster for the Java 2 runtime environment recommended to run the Live Upgrade installer and install the packages. To install the Live Upgrade packages, use the pkgadd command. Or install, for the Java 2 runtime environment, the recommended patch cluster. The patch cluster is available on http://support.oracle.com (My Oracle Support).
