Upgrade Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0/6.1 to 6.3

In this entry, you will see step by step instructions to upgrade the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 installation to version 6.3 on Solaris 10 SPARC using native packages.

Prerequisites

Before you begin the upgrade, you must have Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 installed on your computer. All the other hardware and software requirements remain unchanged. http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2759/hardware?a=view

If you do not have Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 installed on your computer, see the installation instructions at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2761/install-bits-native?a=view.

Preparing for upgrade

Before you upgrade your current Directory Server Enterprise Edition installation to 6.3, stop the DSCC registry, and the running Directory Server and Directory Proxy Server instances. To do this:

  1. Browse to the location where Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 or 6.1 is installed. This example shows the default location.

    # cd /opt/SUNWdsee

  2. Stop the DSCC registry.

    # cd ds6/bin
    # dsadm stop /var/opt/SUNWdsee/dscc6/dcc/ads

  3. Stop all the running instances of Directory Server.

    # dsadm stop instance-path

  4. Stop all the running instances of Directory Proxy Server.

    # dpadm stop instance-path

The registry and all the Directory Server and Directory Proxy Server instances are stopped. You can now go ahead with your upgrade procedure.

Upgrading the shared components

Before you upgrade the Directory Server Enterprise Edition installation, you must upgrade the shared components as mentioned at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2761/upgrade-shared-comps?a=view

  1. Log in to Sun Solve and click Patch Finder.

  2. Type the patch ID to download and click Find Patch. Download all the required patches. Download 119810, 125952, 125358, 119044, 123893, and 125444 patches for Solaris 10 on SPARC.

    Your system might requires you to install the 126538 patch before enabling you to install the 125952 patch. In this scenario, you must install 126538 before installing 125952.

    • Check the relevant NSS/NSPR patch for your installation; type the following commands.
      # pkginfo -l SUNWpr | grep VERSION
      # pkginfo -l SUNWtlr | grep VERSION
      This example displays the following output. Your output might differ based on the NSS/NSPR patch installed on your computer.
      VERSION:  4.6.4,REV=2006.11.16.20.40
      VERSION:  3.11.4,REV=2006.11.16.20.40
      Match the output of the commands with the table at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2761/upgrade-shared-comps?a=view and choose the required patch for your system.
    • To install the correct Webconsole packages, check the patches installed on your system.
      # pkgparam -v SUNWmcon 
      If the output matches the version of patch 125952, 125952 is the required patch. Otherwise
      Remove all the installed patches using the pkgrm commands.
      # pkgrm SUNWmdoc
      # pkgrm SUNWmdemo
      # pkgrm SUNWmcosx
      # pkgrm SUNWmcos 
      # pkgrm SUNWmcon 
      # pkgrm SUNWmconr
      # pkgrm SUNWmctag
      Download the new patch from http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=46cb72a9
  3. Go to the directory where you have downloaded all the patches. Unzip all the shared components using the unzip command.
    # unzip patachid.zip
  4. Install the shared components in the order as mentioned at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-2761/upgrade-shared-comps?a=view.
    To install the patches, type the patchadd command.
    # patchadd patchid
  5. Your system is now ready for version 6.3 upgrade.

Upgrading the DSEE installation

Get Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 binaries from http://www.sun.com/software/products/directory_srvr_ee/get1.jsp

  1. Download the patch to upgrade to DSEE 6.3 and unzip the patch. For ex, 125276-07 for Solaris SPARC
    #unzip 125276-07
  2. Install the patch by using the patchadd command.
    #patchadd -G 125276-07
