    How to update Solaris 10 Update 3 to Update 11?


      Hi friends,


      We have a Solaris machine running 10 update 3


      -bash-3.2# cat /etc/release



      Solaris 10 11/06 s10s_u3wos_10 SPARC



      Copyright 2006 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.



      Use is subject to license terms.



      Assembled 14 November 2006






      bash-3.2# uname -a



      SunOS sunXXXX02 5.10 Generic_150400-59 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490



      -bash-3.2# prtdiag



      System Configuration: Oracle Corporation sun4u Sun Fire V490



      System clock frequency: 150 MHz



      Memory size: 32768 Megabytes


      It is using UFS (not ZFS):


      few of /etc/vfstab entries:



      /dev/md/dsk/d0 /dev/md/rdsk/d0 / ufs 1 no -



      #/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s4 /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s4 /var ufs 1 no -



      #/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3 /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s3 /home ufs 2 yes -



      #/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s5 /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s5 /s ufs 2 yes -



      # Below entries are part of mirrorsets



      /dev/md/dsk/d3 /dev/md/rdsk/d3 /home ufs 2 yes -



      /dev/md/dsk/d4 /dev/md/rdsk/d4 /var ufs 1 no -



      /dev/md/dsk/d5 /dev/md/rdsk/d5 /s ufs 2 yes -


      We need to update/upgrade to Solaris 10 Update 11. By googling I found that we can do it by booting from DVD or LiveUpgrade (seems to be simpler). but we do NOT have support for this machine from OEM. Is it possible to do LiveUpgrade without OEM support. I do have "Sol 10 Update 11" ISO.



      Please advise me the detailed steps on how to -

      1) break the OS mirror (in case we have to revoke) so that we can apply update only on one disk

      2) Perform update process (which one is the best way and its detailed steps).
