    Dear all,

    Thank you for all your replies.
    I'm using Disksuite and I've break the mirror in single user mode when I
    applying the patch.
    I have also rebotted the machine after the patch, but still unable to
    upgrade to -29.

    echo "$<utsname" |mdb -k
    utsname:
    utsname: sys SunOS
    utsname+0x101: node hydra-smc
    utsname+0x202: release 5.8
    utsname+0x303: version Generic_108528-27
    utsname+0x404: machine sun4us
