Name
       dms - diskless management services utility

Syntax
       /etc/dms

Description
       The  utility  performs  diskless	 management  services.	You can use to
       install products into diskless management services areas	 on  a	server
       machine	and  register  diskless	 clients so that they can access those
       products on the server machine, rather than having each client  install
       the products to a disk on its local machine.  The server machine can be
       either a VAX or a RISC machine and it  can  serve  both	VAX  and  RISC
       clients.

       Before  you set up a diskless management services area on a server, the
       following software should be installed: Local Area Network (LAN);  Net‐
       work File System (NFS); and Maintenance Operations Protocol (MOP).

       The utility performs the following functions:

       a - Add Client Processor

       m - Modify Client Parameters

       r - Remove Client Processor

       l - List Registered Clients

       s - Show Products in Diskless Environments

       i - Install Software

       c - Create Diskless Area on Disk

       k - Kernel Rebuild or Copy

       To set up a diskless management services area on a server, select func‐
       tions in the following order:

       1.   Create Diskless Area on Disk (c)

	      This sets up the disk partitions needed  for  the	 two  diskless
	      management  services  file  systems,  and (The question mark (?)
	      represents a unique number assigned by The file system  contains
	      a common root area that is copied to each client when it is reg‐
	      istered, and a area that is shared by all the clients.  The file
	      system  contains	a copy of the common root area for each regis‐
	      tered diskless client.

       2.   Install Software (i)

	      This installs the products from the distribution	media  to  the
	      file  system.   If  the product will be accessed by VAX clients,
	      the images from the media are put under a	 directory  under  the
	      file  system.   If the product will be accessed by RISC clients,
	      the images from the media will be put under  a  directory	 under
	      the file system.	The question mark (?) represents a unique num‐
	      ber assigned by

       To register a diskless client, select the Add Client  Processor	option
       (a).  This copies the common root area in the file system, for example,
       to the diskless client's directory in the file system, for example, The
       server's	 file  is updated to allow the client to access its individual
       root and the shared area.

       Each diskless client's area also contains a client parameter file,

       You must use interactively to set up a diskless environment or to  mod‐
       ify client parameters.

       There  are  several  functions you can use either interactively or from
       the command line:

       - Add Client Processor

       - Show Products in Diskless Environments

       - Remove Client Processor

       - Kernel Rebuild

       When the first diskless client is registered for a diskless  management
       services	 area, a database file, is created on the server machine.  You
       can use this file and the command line to  manage  groups  of  diskless
       clients.
