Solaris Express Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning
Previous Next

Installing Solaris Live Upgrade

You need to install the Solaris Live Upgrade packages on your current OS. The release of the Solaris Live Upgrade packages must match the release of the OS you are upgrading to. For example, if your current OS is the Solaris 9 release and you want to upgrade to the Solaris Express 5/07 release, you need to install the Solaris Live Upgrade packages from the Solaris Express 5/07 release.

Installing Solaris Live Upgrade involves either installing by using the pkgadd command or by using the installer.

To Install Solaris Live Upgrade With the pkgadd Command

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Install the packages in the following order.
    # pkgadd -d path_to_packages SUNWlucfg SUNWlur SUNWluu   
    path_to_packages

    Specifies the absolute path to the software packages.

  3. Verify that the package has been installed successfully.
    # pkgchk -v SUNWlucfg SUNWlur SUNWluu

To Install Solaris Live Upgrade With the Solaris Installation Program


Note - This procedure assumes that the system is running removable media services. If you have questions about removable media services that manage discs, refer to System Administration Guide: Devices and File Systems for detailed information.


  1. Insert the Solaris Operating System DVD or Solaris Software - 2 CD.
  2. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  3. Run the installer for the media you are using.
    • If you are using the Solaris Operating System DVD, change directories to the installer and run the installer.

      • For SPARC based systems:

        # cd /media/cdrom/s0/Solaris_11/Tools/Installers
        # ./liveupgrade20
      • For x86 based systems:

        # cd /media/cdrom/Solaris_11/Tools/Installers
        # ./liveupgrade20

      The Solaris installation program GUI is displayed.

    • If you are using the Solaris Software - 2 CD, run the installer.

      % ./installer

      The Solaris installation program GUI is displayed.

  4. From the Select Type of Install panel, click Custom.
  5. On the Locale Selection panel, click the language to be installed.
