Basic procedure is to clone the OS using DRD, then updating the clone.

Finally boot the cloned OS.

Hope this helps!

Hello, You mean to say like

1)Upgrade the os(11.31) using with drd

2)activate the cloned disk

3)update the patches on the activated disk

4)Reboot the server

Is it the right procedure or reboot is ncessary after the os upgrade using with drd before pathing ??

In this procedure you upgrade and patch the *inactive* clone using special drd-... commands.


The final reboot is needed to activate the clone (you just boot from the disk that holds the clone).

Hope this helps!
