Upgrade to Sun Cluster 3.2 1/09 Update2 and SUNWscr preremove script

There is a missing/old preremove script in Sun Cluster 3.2 2/08 Update1 which is equivalent to the patches
126106-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10
126107-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10_x86
126105-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 9

This means in case of Upgrade (using scinstall -u) from Sun Cluster 3.2 to Sun Cluster 3.2 update1 or update2 the issue can occur.
More details available in Missing preremove script in Sun Cluster 3.2 core patch revision 12 and higher.
The issue is, if the mentioned Sun Cluster core patches are installed it is not possible to remove the SUNWscr package within the upgrade to Sun Cluster 3.2 1/09 Update2.

The problem looks as:
# ./scinstall -u update
Starting upgrade of Sun Cluster framework software
Saving current Sun Cluster configuration
Do not boot this node into cluster mode until upgrade is complete.
Renamed "/etc/cluster/ccr" to "/etc/cluster/ccr.upgrade".
\*\* Removing Sun Cluster framework packages \*\*
    ...
    Removing SUNWscrtlh..done
    Removing SUNWscr.....failed
    scinstall: Failed to remove "SUNWscr"
    Removing SUNWscscku..done
    ...
scinstall: scinstall did NOT complete successfully!

126106-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10
126107-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10_x86
126105-12 until -19 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 9

This means in case of Upgrade (using scinstall -u) from Sun Cluster 3.2 to Sun Cluster 3.2 update1 or update2 the issue can occur.

Workaround:
Before the upgrade to Sun Cluster 3.2 Update1/Update2 install the following patch which delivers a correct preremove script for Sun Cluster 3.2
140016 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 9
140017 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10
140018 Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10_x86

If already one of the following patches installed then the above patches are not necessary, because these patches also include a correct preremove script for package SUNWscr.
126106-27 or higher Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10
126107-28 or higher Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 10_x86
126105-26 or higher Sun Cluster 3.2: CORE patch for Solaris 9

This is reported in bugs 6676771 and 6747530 with further details.

I'm still mostly blogging around Solaris Cluster and support. Independently if for Sun Microsystems or Oracle. :-)
