Upgrading an ADOM

To upgrade an ADOM, you must be logged in as a super user administrator.

Typically, ADOMs are upgraded after all the devices within the ADOM have been upgraded.

For information on upgrading an ADOM before all devices within the ADOM are upgraded, see ADOM versions and Using mixed versions in ADOMs.

Note

Before upgrading your ADOM, it is recommended to backup your configuration and/or take a VM snapshot so that you can roll back changes if required.

See Creating a snapshot of VM instances and Backing up the system.

To upgrade an ADOM:
  1. Go to System Settings > All ADOMs.
  2. Select an ADOM, and then select More > Upgrade from the toolbar.

    If the ADOM has already been upgraded to the latest version, this option will not be available.

  3. Select OK in the confirmation dialog box to upgrade the device.

    If all of the devices within the ADOM are not already upgraded, the upgrade will be aborted and an error message will be shown. Upgrade the remaining devices within the ADOM, then return to step 1 to try upgrading the ADOM again.
