After installkernel finishes successfully, you should boot in single

How can this be done with a remote machine?

NO without serial access or some kind of ALOM card eg DELL DRAC CARD, as you
will have no ip up

Then correct me if I am wrong but if I do not have such a card, then I
am better off using freebsd-update since it does not require me to
boot in single user mode?


Yes, freebsd-update does not require single user mode. Just follow the updated handbook instructions:


As an additional precaution, edit the /etc/rc.conf file and comment out all non essential services when rebooting with the GENERIC kernel in the intermediate step (assuming you were using a custom kernel). Re-enable them when you rebuild your custom kernel.
