HP-UX Upgrade and Logical Volume

Hi All,

 

 

We are planning to upgrade HP-UX 11.23 to HP-UX 11.31 using update-ux.

 

/dev/vg00/lvol3  /

/dev/vg00/lvol1 /stand

/dev/vg00/lvol8  /var

/dev/vg00/lvol7 /usr

/dev/vg00/lvol4 /tmp

/dev/vg00/lvol13 /oracle

 

Can I unmount the /oracle partition and start upgrading the OS. Once the upgrade is complete remount the parition.

All the paritions on the same logical volume vg00.

 

 

Thanks

Re: HP-UX Upgrade and Logical Volume

That should work, but make sure you do a make_net_recovery of vg00 less the oracle LV first, incase you have to roll back your upgrade. A full tape backup is the next thing you should do.

 

Just a quick note!  I realize that sometimes you have no choice to upgrade in place, but a new 11.31 installation and application migration is the best and most recommended approach to upgrading the OS.
