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.
-help Show summary of options
Display version and copyright information
Host name of the client you want to update. When used with
-continue-install, the name of the client to autoinstall.
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.
If this option is used, DOMAINNAME will be appended to the
client host name(s).
Read host names and images to process from FILE.
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
Hostname or IP address of the imageserver. (-imageserver is a
deprecated option and will go away soon.)
Image from which the client should be updated
Absolute path of the directory to be updated (defaults to "/")
Don’t run lilo after update completes. (lilo is always run
Autoinstall this client the next time it reboots. (can’t be run
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
Quoted string for log file format. See the rsyncd.conf man page
