    Upgrade Solaris 10 U8 to U9

    990261
      I am new to UNIX administration. I have a system that needs JDK1.7 on it. The system is currently running Solaris 10 U8 and JDK1.7 requires Solaris 10 U9+. I downloaded Solaris 10 U9 and then ran the patch analyzer to see what needed to be replaced or removed. I got a list of 150 items. Is this normal? Will it cause issues if I do the upgrade? I plan on doing a ufsdump before I do the upgrade. I was going to try a live upgrade but I do not have the space. Should I go to Solaris 10 U11?
