7) To run the update on your server

   ===>> Please read the Installation Instructions first <<==

   # cd /pub/pmp3250
   # ./runme.sh

                   ........WAIT...........

   # /etc/shutdown -Fr

8) NFS export the PMP dir as READ-ONLY to all your clients.

9) To update a client system

    a -  Mount the PMP filesystem from the server
    b -  cd <mounted_filesystem>
    c -  execute ./runme.sh
    d -  Unmount PMP filesystem
    e -  reboot

10) To create a copy 1:1 of the tape you received use the script 'mktape.sh'

   # cd /pub/pmp3250
   # mktape.sh 0

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= cut here =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
#!/bin/ksh
# @(#) mktape.sh: creates a bootable tape from images on disk

# change name prefix here

if [ -z "${1}" ]
then
  echo "\nusage: mktape <drive_no>"
  echo "         <drive_no>: tape drive number (e.g. 0)\n"
  exit 1

tctl -f ${device} rewind

while test -r "${NAME}${i}"
do
    echo "copy ${i}"
    if [ $i -le 3 ]
    then
      dd if="${NAME}${i}" of=${device} conv=sync bs=1k
    else
      dd if="${NAME}${i}" of=${device} bs=200k
    fi
    let i=${i}+1
