Is there yet any way to remotely rebuild a FreeBSD system? I have two FreeBSD systems on two remote campuses that presently run FreeBSD6.3. They need to be running FreeBSD9.0 and I don't really care how I get there as long as it can be done over the network. If we were physically there, I would put a CDROM in and blow them away since it is such a large jump.
I can have staff members there install CDROM's that were remastered to use the serial console, but I am hoping that maybe we are moving past this sort of logistics. I just tried to unpack the 9.0 image using tar which has worked in the past to let one modify loader.conf but I got a bunch of errors this time about files that couldn't be created so maybe this is not the recommended headless installation technique any longer. Any ideas?
