If you are currently running OpenIndiana oi_147 or oi_148, first, verify you have the correct publishers set:

If your openindiana.org publisher is set to a different URI, for example http://pkg.openindiana.org/dev/ (our release candidate branch), you can correct this with:

opensolaris.org publisher

If you currently have the opensolaris.org publisher set, we would highly recommend unsetting it by running:

You may want to update your packages fully in case of a bad pkg cache:

You can now identify what will be upgraded by issuing the command:

The -n flag specifies to perform no action (i.e. perform a trial run), and the -v flag is the verbose option, to provide additional output.

If you are satisfied with the actions to be taken, you can perform the upgrade by typing:

You may want to consider also passing the "--be-name" flag to give the new boot environment created a more memorable name, such as oi_151a.

NOTE: After booting into the new BE, for servers running the in-kernel CIFS service (svc:/network/smb/server:default) in conjunction with AD, the service may fail to connect to your Active Directory domain controller running Windows Server 2008 R2, and thus clients will not be able to connect to network shares.

The solution is to set the lmauthlevel to 4:

sharectl set -p lmauth_level=4 smb

(previously on b148 and lower this needed to be set to level 2 to work correctly with Win2K8R2)

    Hmm just followed the instructions and upgraded my oi_147.
    runs fine, just do the pkg install mentioned above.
    but why does the upgrade end with this ?

    Thought it was based on Illumos and not direct from Oracle.

    The first command "pkg publisher" does not need privilege escalation so the "pfexec" can be deleted.

    There is also a conflict between the # and pfexec, either use root logon (# prompt) or an elevated command $ pfexec

    After upgrade boot screen shows oi_148b.

    Confirmed w/uname

    gjohnson@theta:~$ uname -v
    oi_148b
    gjohnson@theta:~$

    Is it an error? Or did it fail to update the kernel to 151?

      Did you remember to boot over to the new be??

      Mine shows oi_151a for uname -v.

      Looks like repo isn't working.
      Try original publisher:
      pkg publisher -a
      PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS URI
      openindiana.org (preferred) origin online http://pkg.openindiana.org/dev/
      sfe origin online http://pkg.openindiana.org/sfe/

        Hi,
        thx for the advise, the result with the repository on http://pkg.openindiana.org/dev is exactly the same.
        HTTP error 403 while downloading library/audio/gstreamer.

        Maybe it's a problem with my environment (sitting behind a firewall, proxy, ...) i try to check this out
        and post my result here if i have success.

          I am experiencing the following problem with the repository:
          Unable to contact valid package repository
          Encountered the following error(s):

          This is likely a network configuration problem.

      Hi all,

      found the reason for my problem:
      A very popular server based anti virus solution identifies the gstreamer pkg as the virus "Heuristic.BehavesLike.Exploit.CodeExec.NLK" and blocks the access ....

    Thanks a bunch! I was able to upgrade mine to 151a today. I had some issues, but it was all self induced.

    I had a static IP set, it had problems resolving the FQDN of the update server. Fixed - DHCP
    Could not run all the commands in napp-it (does nto support interactive commands) - Putty in and run from console.

    Now running:
    OpenIndiana appliance v. 0.6i nightly Nov.17.2011
    SunOS OI 5.11 oi_151a i86pc i386 i86pc
    Pool: 9.06T
    Free: 790G - guess I have another upgrade to do now.... off to newegg.

    Hi,

    I am trying to upgrade from oi_148 to oi_151a and keep getting the following error.

    Does it means the repo doesn't work anymore?

    pfexec doesn't work for me with OpenIndiana; I have to su to root.  However, using pfexec as a user always worked in OpenSolaris.

    I have same problem as 'lee' and 'halpha' and others - (even when trying to update as root) sadly questions on how to mitigate this issue on many of the support sites: illumos.org and openindiana-discuss go unanswered. Its quite a shame looks like a very nice OS, and love the ZFS support, but lack of support is casting doubt on this as serious OS.

    Sam, your post prompted me to get back working on this little project. The solution for me:

    pkg rebuild-index

    After that the upgrade went smoothly.
