Hello All,

    I have a Sun Fire V250 with 6X72 GB HDDs. Two of them are mirrored
to each other while the rest are configured as RAID 5. The RAID 5
devices run Oracle 9i and Oracle EBusiness suite. I have been asked to
upgrade to Solaris 10. I have no problem regarding downtime as it is a
standby server. Will the upgrade go smoothly? Solaris 8 uses DiskSuite
whereas Solaris 10 comes with SVM. If I go with the "PRESERVE" option,
will the data stay intact? Has anyone faced any problem?

Please reply,

Best Regards,
Bruce.
