- first i would recommend reading the handbook about buildworld http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/makeworld.html - if this are production machines, i would use tag=RELENG_4_8 so you are only updating to the latest security branch. developers at freebsd.org are currently preparing to release 4.9 so -stable could be shaky. - in a production environment, always try the update on a test maschine (which should be identical to the prod machines) - you could try updating the servers over nfs, see the handbook mentioned above. if you read the documentation really carefully, there is nothing to be afraid of. i am updating my servers since 3 years via cvsup/installworld and never had a problem (thanks to the freebsd team :-). hth, toni -- Kann man etwas nicht verstehen, dann urteile man | toni at stderror dot at lieber gar nicht, als dass man verurteile. | Toni Schmidbauer -- Rudolf Steiner |
