upgrade my Ultra 30 from Solaris 9 to Solaris 10

upgrade my Ultra 30 from Solaris 9 to Solaris 10

Post by glow.. » Sat, 15 Jan 2005 00:47:45



Good morning group,

When trying to upgrade my Ultra 30 from Solaris 9 to Solaris 10,
everything works great using default settings until I get to the window
that says:

"Testing the upgrade profile, please wait ..."

the progress bar reaches 100% everytime, but afterwards, another window
pops up and says:

"Auto layout for Disk Space Reallocation failed. Please see the Solaris
Installation Documentation for more upgrade options."

Any advice on what the above is really asking for? Is there a system
log
that I can check to see where it's failing?

I have two 4.2GB Sun hard drives partitioned into:

/ (root) 2GB
/usr 2GB
/var 2GB
/export/home 1GB
swap 1GB

I am using a remote NFS server to back up current data and I've tested
to
make sure that the Ultra 30 is able to successfully mount the remote
filesystem and  create files on the remote NFS server.

It probably needs more space in the /usr partition.  I have an Ultra 30
with two 9-gig drives.  I had Solaris 9 installed on one, and just did
a fresh install of Solaris 10 on the other.  Here's how it looks:

  Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
  /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0     191899  107047   65663    62%    /
  /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s6    4340438 2903952 1393082    68%    /usr
  /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s4     191899   73894   98816    43%    /var
  /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s5    3704186 1816695 1850450    50%    /opt
  /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0     193183   87504   86361    51%    /S9
  /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s4     578299  266780  253690    52%    /S9var
  /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s5    5342650 3483490 1805734    66%    /S9opt
  /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s6    1960367 1655028  246528    88%    /S9usr

/opt is large because it contains /home and /usr/local/src.

1. Jumpstart solaris 10 b69 and solaris 10 b72 on an Ultra 30

I am trying to jumpstart a Sun Ultra 30 using Solaris 10 b69
(b72 gives the same results) from a Linux jumpstart server.

I have scripts for all this (soon to be release opensource!) but
..although I can get b55, beta5(b60) and b63  and b55 to work
b63 and b72 do not work!

since this is an Ultra 30 I went to

http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Devices/Boot_PROM/BootPROM_Sun4u...
and ran Patch 105930-06 with no problems.

Even now it does not boot.

- bpgetfile shows all parameters can be retreived ok.
- nfs mounts all work
- pfinstall shows the profile is ok
- I've checked the rules file and it is fine.
- The /tftpboot directory is setup correctly with the right inetboot file.

reset
boot net - install
I can see the tftp transfer clock up ok to 38600
The linux server shows the correct mount of the root= directory.

Normally the kernel banner should appear next but instead I get
loads of messages

not found: vmem_create
not found: vmem_alloc
not found: cv_signal
not found: wake_sched_sec
not found: physmax
not found: putreg
not found: fp_precise
not found: ddi_prop_lookup_init_array
not found: sema_v
not found: traceregs
not found: psignal
not found: strcmp
not found: fop_putpage
not found: strcmp
not found: global_zone
not found: fastscan

etc.. and eventually

krtld:error during initial load/link phase
panic - boot:exitto64 returned from client program

and I'm back at the ok prompt

1. From the book "Solaris Internals: Core Kernel Architecture" using

/usr/ccs/bin/dump -Lv /platform/sun4u/kernel/sparcv9/unix

mentions the line NEEDED..dtracestubs

but I cannot find dtracestubs under that /platform directory.
Is this a problem?

2. nm on things seems to indicate the missing symbols are in genunix
but I'm not sure how to debug what is going on??

3. eeprom | grep boot-file give
boot-file: data not available so I assume a 64-bit boot should occur.

On the net I've seen add set moddebug to /etc/system but the
Solaris Internals boot indicates that /etc/system is read AFTER
krtld does an inital link.

I'm totally stumped why this will not work...Any ideas?

2. Vitual Directory Mappings using Apache V1.2.6

3. upgrade from Ultra-2 to Ultra-10, and Solaris 2.6 to 2.7

4. Xwin problem.....

5. Ultra 10 Vs Ultra 30

6. problem in make

7. Ultra 10 VS Ultra 30

8. Ethertalk for RS/60000

9. Live upgrade failure: Solaris 10 -> Solaris 10 update 1.

10. Solaris 10 (build 63) upgrade fails on Solaris 8 as well as Solaris 9 sparcs

11. Problem upgrading Ultra 60 from Solaris 9 to 10

12. Need help making port bidirectional on Sparc 10/30-Solaris 2.3

13. Problem upgrading from Solaris 9 to 10 on Ultra 60
