How to Upgrade Sun Ray 4.x to 5.x


Let’s start from here:

bash-3.2# cd /Desktop
bash-3.2# unzip SUN\ RAY\ OPERATING\ SOFTWARE\
bash-3.2# unzip Sunray\

NOTE: If you are upgrading then stop Sun Ray Software services before proceeding

bash-3.2# /opt/SUNWut/sbin/utstop

a.   Install Sun Ray Operating Software First
bash-3.2# cd /Desktop/sros_11.0.2.0
bash-3.2# ./utfwinstall

bash-3.2# pkgadd -d /Desktop/srs_5.3.0.0-SunOS.i386/Supplemental/JDS_Integrator/Solaris_10+/i386/Packages SUNWuttscwrap

c.    Verify installed java version, if its 1.6.x then go ahead with Sun Ray Upgrade , else extract latest java from Supplemental directory and copy extracted contents into /usr/java directory. I have java version 1.6.0_26 so I don’t need to install java.

bash-3.2# java -version
java version "1.6.0_26"

bash-3.2# /Desktop/srs_5.3.0.0-SunOS.i386/utinstall

d.   After successful upgrade reboot your Sun Ray Server
