 UPGRADE TO 12CU2 (HAVING THE FORMER 2161 AGENT BUNDLE) ON S10 CAUSES MULTI-USER TO GO INTO MAINTENANCE STATE

Using the OpsCenter BUI, I select a Solaris 10 OS asset and click "upgrade agent controller".  I select "automatic" installation because I have an active agent on the server.  

The job starts and the software is upgraded.

At the completion of the upgrade, the SMF service 'multi-user:default' on the client is in maintenance state.

output of /var/adm/messages during the upgrade:
Nov 28 14:30:19 usa0300ux259 svc.startd[9]: [ID 894785 daemon.error] Transitioning svc:/milestone/multi-user:default to maintenance because it completes a dependency cycle (see svcs -xv for details):

Nov 28 14:30:58 usa0300ux259 cacao_v2: [ID 702911 daemon.notice] Updated instance [scn-agent]: [cacao.version] was  [2.3.1.1], set to [2.3.1.2].

Then the OpsCenter BUI reports the SMF service is in maintenance state.

Why is the upgrade leaving my OS in this state?
