   Hello Everybody,

   I've been asked to upgrade a Solaris VCS two node cluster, also
   running VxFS and VxVM, with
   shared storage provided on a Symmetrix. Two Oracle 9i databases are
   running on the cluster. Can anyone point me in the right direction in
   terms of a recommended upgrade procedure/checklist and any potential

   I'm planning to use the standard Solaris Upgrade, rather than Live

   The plan I've got so far is

   1 Confirm all curently installed versions of Veritas/oracle/ssh
   etc will run on sol 10
   2 Break the root mirror on one server.
   3 perform upgrade
   4 confirm Veritas/oracle come back on-line.
   5 Resync the root disks
   6 boot other side of the mirror
   7 Repeat the above on the other server.

   If anyone point out any potential pitfalls or flaws in the above, I'd
   be very grateful.
