Thanks in advance!

1. Solaris 2.5 ---> Solaris 2.6 -- won't let me upgrade

I have an Ultra 1 running Solaris 2.5, and I need to upgrade to 2.6.  But
the install/upgrade process only gives me an "initial install" option.
Help!! Help!!

I have already gone through the troubleshooting process and verified that
INST_RELEASE has the proper contents and is not sym-linked anywhere.
Also, I have no metadevices, and vfstab has no invalid swap enteries,
etc.  I have even called Sun support (after all, I have a Silver
contract), and that has been no help.  They had me make a couple of
changes in vfstab related to fsck passes and such, and when that made no
difference, they had me exit the install and manually fsck /, /var, and
/usr, and then restart.  That, too, made no difference.

I have a lot of commercial and GPL licensed packages installed, and so
just going ahead with an initial install is a very last resort solution.

Has anyone else gone through the same hoops?  What finally fixed it?

Thanks much,
Rob Tanner
