opensolaris 2008.11 to 2009.06 upgrade fails on beadm
New OpenSolaris release: Yay !
Updater fails on
beadm create, and manual attempts also fail: Boo !
After a lot of
grumbling Googling down plenty of dead-ends it appears that
beadm in 2008.11 gets very upset when there are Zones attached. A set of
zoneadm detach commands later and the updater completed without any problems at all.
