Live Upgrade on Steriods

Yes, with the fact that I’ve got ZFS boot/root running, Live upgrade is a piece of cake due to the fact that ZFS can snapshot and clone the current boot environment. Here’s now what I do to live upgrade my home system when a new build is released:

cd /Solaris_11/Tools/Installers

./liveupgrade20 -nodisplay -noconsole

lucreate -n nv95

luupgrade -u -n nv95 -s /export/install/media/nv/combined.nvx_wos/95

luactivate nv95

init 6
