installing opensolaris 2008.11 over Solaris CEX (build 98)

so I don't want to go too deep in that - as it is pretty easy and straight forward.

The only real issue I stumbled accross is that my prior installation of Solaris used UFS.

So after my first try of installation opensolaris I ran into a GRUB which didn't show me any option of booting any environment.

Nor Windows nor Solaris. I was pretty scrued up but then I booted the opensolaris CD again and asked my colleague Phillip W. if he has an idea.

The  easy answer - it seems actually that opensolaris is not correctly overwrite the UFS. So we did following from the CD booted environment:

root@opensolaris:~# format
Searching for disks...done


AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
       0. c4t0d0 <DEFAULT cyl 12889 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63>
          /pci@0,0/pci1179,1@1f,2/disk@0,0
Specify disk (enter its number): q
`q' is not an integer.
Specify disk (enter its number): \^D
root@opensolaris:~# fstyp /dev/rdsk/c4t0d0s0
ufs
root@opensolaris:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/c4t0d0s0 bs=1024k count=5
5+0 records in
5+0 records out
5242880 bytes (5,2 MB) copied, 0,553595 s, 9,5 MB/s
root@opensolaris:~# fstyp /dev/rdsk/c4t0d0s0
zfs
root@opensolaris:~#  

So now install newly - and you are done.

Enjoy the new cool features.

Remark by Mark:

I also wanted to follow-up on the grub issue we ran into.  We confirmed it is related to a known bug, and the good news is that once we found the work around we no longer had to have people re-install OpenSolaris.  It just requires booting back into the LiveCD and run a couple of commands.  The BugID# is 6769487.
