Error description

  • When using multibos to update the standby instance to
    6100-09, the following message is displayed:
    
    Creating standby BOS boot image on boot logical volume
       bos_hd5
    Could not load program /usr/bin/ls32:
    Symbol resolution failed for ls32 because:
            Symbol time64 (number 39) is not exported from
       dependent
              module
       /usr/lib/multibos_chroot/usr/ccs/lib/libc.a(shr.o).
    Examine .loader section symbols with the 'dump -Tv'
       command.
    /usr/sbin/bosboot[16]: kernsize /= 1024: 0403-009 The
       specified number is not valid for this command.
    multibos: 0565-039 Error processing standby BOS boot
       image.
    

Local fix

  • To work around the issue, the ls32 command in the standby
    instance must be replaced with a version that does not
    call time64.
    
    1) Create the standby instance:
    # multibos -sX
    Return Status = SUCCESS
    
    2) Update the standby instance:
    # multibos -Xcal <update_dir>
    Return Status: FAILURE
    
    Ensure that all updates were applied successfully, but
    building the boot image fails as described above.
    
    3) Replace the ls32 command in the standby instance with
    one that will work and build the boot image:
    # multibos -Xm
    # cp /bos_inst/usr/bin/ls32 \
    >   /bos_inst/usr/bin/ls32.multibos
    # cp /usr/bin/ls /bos_inst/usr/bin/ls32
    # multibos -BtX
    # mv /bos_inst/usr/bin/ls32.multibos \
    >   /bos_inst/usr/bin/ls32
    # multibos -uX
    
    4) Set the bootlist to the standby and reboot:
    # bootlist -rm normal hdisk0 blv=bos_hd5 hdisk0 blv=hd5
    # shutdown -Fr
    

Problem summary

  • Multibos fails to update the standby instance to 6100-09.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Replacing ls32 command in the standby instance with one that
    one that will work and build the boot image.
