Relationship Between the Parties
The relationship between you and us is that of licensee/licensor.
Neither party will represent that it has any authority to assume or
create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other
party, nor to represent the other party as agent, employee, franchisee,
or in any other capacity. Nothing in this agreement shall be construed
to limit either party's right to independently develop or distribute
software that is functionally similar to the other party's products, so
long as proprietary information of the other party is not included in
Open Source Software
"Open Source" software - software available without charge for use,
modification and distribution - is often licensed under terms that
require the user to make the user's modifications to the Open Source
software or any software that the user 'combines' with the Open
Source software freely available in source code form. If you use Open
Source software in conjunction with the Programs (or if you plan on
licensing your own application under an Open Source license), you must
ensure that your use does not: (i) create, or purport to create,
obligations with respect to the Oracle Programs; or (ii) grant, or
purport to grant, to any third party any rights to or immunities under
our intellectual property or proprietary rights in the Oracle Programs.
For example, you may not develop a software program using an Oracle
program and an Open Source program where such use results in a program
file(s) that contains code from both the Oracle program and the Open
Source program (including without limitation libraries) if the Open
Source program is licensed under a license that requires any
"modifications" be made freely available. You also may not combine the
Oracle program with programs licensed under the GNU General Public
License ("GPL") in any manner that could cause, or could be interpreted
or asserted to cause, the Oracle program or any modifications thereto
to become subject to the terms of the GPL.
You agree that this agreement is the complete agreement for the
Programs and licenses, and this agreement supersedes all prior or
contemporaneous agreements or representations. Any other license terms
that may be included in or with the Program shall not apply. If any
term of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the
remaining provisions will remain effective.

do we need to break the zpool mirror volumes before going for patching the os.
No, beadm will automatically make a backup.
Live Upgrade has come a long way since its introduction back in Solaris 2.6! I remember having to debug stuff like swap file entries in vfstab causing failures (LU_DEBUG is your friend).
With ZFS snapshots things are a LOT easier. Great article Erik!
Appreciating the hard work you put into your blog and in depth information you
provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
out of date rehashed information. Fantastic read!
