Planning the upgrade
Complete the following tasks in advance of upgrading:
Review the Veritas Storage Foundation Cluster File System Release Notes for any late-breaking information on upgrading your system.
Be sure that the administrator doing the upgrade has root access and a working knowledge of system administration.
Schedule sufficient outage time for the upgrade.
Make sure you have upgraded all the file systems to disk layout Version 6, before you upgrade SFCFS to 5.0. Disk layout Version 7 is the recommended version for SFCFS 5.0.
See the Veritas File System Administrator's Guide.
Verify all the file systems are working fine and data is intact.
