       /usr/sys/dist/kits key-file input-path output-path [ subset...  ]

       The  command produces subset images, inventories, and control files for
       an installation using the command.  You need to know the key file which
       describes the product to be built, a hierarchy from which the component
       files to be kitted are to be taken, and a  destination  directory  into
       which the kit information is to be placed.

       The  command  produces  a subset image and a .image file in the output-
       path directory for each subset. In the instctrl subdirectory of output-
       path, produces an inventory file and a control file. Any subset control
       program for the subset  is  transferred	to  output-path/instctrl.   An
       instctrl directory is created if none existed.

       key-file	      The  path	 name  of  the	manufacturing  key  file which
		      describes the product to be kitted. Unless optional sub‐
		      set  arguments  are specified, all subsets listed in the
		      descriptor section of the key-file are kitted.

       input-path     The path name which specifies the top of a hierarchy  of
		      files. This hierarchy contains the files which are to be
		      kitted into subsets.

       output-path    The name of the directory to be used to store the subset
		      image and data files produced by the command.

       subset...      The  names  of  individual  subsets  can be specified by
		      optionally listing them on the command line. If they are
		      specified,  only	those subsets will be kitted. The pro‐
		      gram assumes that all other subsets for the product have
		      been  kitted  and that their images are in the directory
		      specified by output-path.	 The key file  specified  must
		      contain  descriptors for each of the optional named sub‐

       Any subset control programs to be provided with the kit must be located
       in  a  directory	 scps  in  the	working directory where the program is
       invoked. If no subset control program is found for a subset,  an	 empty
       one is created.

       The following example shows the command used to produce a kit using key
       file ULT400.k in the current directory to package files from the	 hier‐
       archy /var/kits/input and place the results in /var/kits/output.
	   kits ULT400.k /var/kits/input /var/kits/output
       The  next  example  shows  the  same usage, but specifies that only the
       ULTACCT400 subset is to be created.
	   kits ULT400.k /var/kits/input /var/kits/output ULTACCT400

       kits: key-file not found
       The program was unable to find the key-file specified  on  the  command

       kits: input-path not found
       The program was unable to find the specified input-path.

       kits: output-path not found
       The program was unable to find the  specified output-path.

       kits: cannot create instctrl directory.
       The  program  cannot  create  an	 instctrl directory under output-path.
       Check that the user has write permission to output-path.

       kits: key-file format error
       One of the NAME, CODE, VERS, MI or ROOT values in  the  specified  key-
       file is either missing or has a null value.

       Inventory file pathname not found
       The  master  inventory  file  pathname specified in the MI entry of the
       key-file cannot be found. Verify that the pathname is  accessible  from
       the current directory.

       Generating media creation information...failed.
       There are no records in the master inventory file for a subset which is
       being kitted.  Check the master inventory file for correctness of  con‐
       tent and format.

       No such subset in key-file subset subset
       A  subset name specified on the command line does not have a descriptor
       line in the key-file.  Check the spelling of the	 subset	 name  on  the
       command line.  Check the contents of the key-file.

       compression failed. status = status
       The  compression option was specified in the key-file and an attempt to
       compress a subset failed. This should not happen. Run the program  once

       temporary files.
