       This manual page documents briefly the pushupdate command.

       pushupdate  is  a  tool  for  updating  the image on one or more client
       nodes.  It relies on the availability of ssh as a transport  layer  for
       communicating with client nodes.


       A summary of options is included below.

              Display version and copyright information

       -client HOSTNAME
              Host  name  of  the  client  you want to update.  When used with
              -continue-install, the name of the client to autoinstall.

       -range X-Y
              Number range used to create a series of host names based on  the
              -client  option.   For  example,  "-client  www -range 1-3" will
              cause pushupdate to use www1, www2, and www3 as host names.   If
              no  -range  is  given with -client, then pushupdate assumes that
              only one client is to be updated.

       -domain DOMAINNAME
              If this option is used,  DOMAINNAME  will  be  appended  to  the
              client host name(s).

       -clients-file FILE
              Read host names and images to process from FILE.

       -concurrent-processes N
              Number  of  concurrent  process  to  run.  If this option is not
              used, N will default to 1.

              Username for ssh connection to client.

              Hosts should be  treated  as  autoinstall  clients  waiting  for
              further instruction.

       -server HOSTNAME
              Hostname  or  IP  address of the imageserver. (-imageserver is a
              deprecated option and will go away soon.)

       -image IMAGENAME
              Image from which the client should be updated

       -directory DIRECTORY
              Absolute path of the directory to be updated (defaults to "/")

              Don’t run lilo after update  completes.   (lilo  is  always  run
              unless specified)

              Autoinstall this client the next time it reboots.  (can’t be run
              with -nolilo)

       -configure-from DEVICE
              Only used with -autoinstall.  Stores the  network  configuration
              for DEVICE in the /local.cfg file so that the same settings will
              be used during the autoinstall process.

              Reboot client after update completes

       -log "STRING"
              Quoted string for log file format.  See the rsyncd.conf man page
              for options.
