    s8 -> s10 luupgrade fails


      Hello folks,


      i'm struggling to upgrade solaris 8u2 10/00 to solaris 10u11. After successful creation of new ABE with lucreate, luupgrade fails with following error:

      luupgrade -u -n s10u11-abe-20140123 -s /mnt/iso -k /usr/localcw/opt/sau/etc/sysidcfg -j /var/tmp/u11_profile 2>&1


      luupgrade is running, this may take a while to display results, please be patient

      I checked the checksums of the media (iso file) and it's OK. Anyone knows how to fix this issue?


      Thanks in advance for any hint,
