" All,
" I have a sun machine connected to HDS SAN box with a qlogic card running
" Solaris 8.
" I would like to upgrade this to Solaris 9. 
" Could anyone tell me what is the best practise whether an upgrade or a fresh
" install.
" Also if anyone has the procedure to do the same it would be great.
" Appreciate your feedback on this.

my favorite way is to attach a temporary disk to the system and copy
the old [current] os to it.  then install the new os clean, and comb
through all the system files on both versions looking for site-local
customizations - and finally, if the new install doesn't work for some
reason, reboot from the saved old one and regroup...
