Hello Friends, This is Nilesh Joshi from Pune, India.By profession I am an UNIX Systems Administrator and have proven career track on UNIX Systems Administration.In addition to this even the slicing was bit confusing at disk level (missing slice on rootmirror disk for one of the OS partition) and I strongly guess that this caused concerns to vxlustart to turn out to be successful.Eventually, I left with only one choice to un-encapsulate rootdg using vxunroot command & then perform the patching along with OS upgrade.entire 0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.10.0.5.120803T182627Z - incorporation would also be updated.All installed packages would be updated to the newest version allowed by the constraints imposed on the system by installed package dependencies and publisher configuration.Note that the system is live during the live-upgrade process.It can actually take a lot longer than 1.5 hours, depending on how many zones you have, but the only downtime it the reboot to activate the updated ABE.
Also, you’ve automated creating your servers – no more following incomprehensible instructions.
This blog is written from both my research and my experience.
The methods I describe herein are those that I have used and that have worked for me.
If you’re not familiar with Puppet, it’s a fairly popular tool for helping to maintain your infrastructure.
The basic idea is automating the creation of your servers. You can write scripts (called manifests, which are organized into modules) using Puppet’s DSL (domain-specific language) to interact with these resources and set them up correctly on your new server.
