So I wrote this a while back, and have made some adjustments to it. I need to do this the right way and use the DB to determine MDs instead of the cheat I am using, but for now it will do. I also need to log... so it is likely to change shortly, but what it does is upgrade your entire system at the same time, upgrading the MDs locally. The steps it takes are:
1. Update/upgrade the core.
2. Copies the packages files to /usr/pluto/deb-cache
3. Creates a new Packages.gz file
4. Backs up the entire /usr/pluto/diskless directory in a tarball in /usr/pluto/backup
5. Updates/upgrades MDs, regardless of their on/off state using NFS link to cores deb-cache (meaning, the upgrades for MDs are local)
6. Cleans up and exits.
So, at the moment, you shouldn't turn an MD off if it is on while it is upgrading. Nor should you try and use this if you have different MD versions (like 810 MD on a 1004 hybrid).
Would appreciate feedback. Just put it somewhere on the core (/usr/pluto/bin would be a good place), and run it as root.
svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/people/l3mce/GlobalUpgrades.sh
If you don't have subversion, then
wget http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/people/l3mce/GlobalUpgrades.sh; chmod +x GlobalUpgrades.sh
This is an upgrade. It COULD break things. Remember, there is a backup of the MDs. This occurs before upgrade so you can restore.
This is an upgrade. ALL Machines will need to be restarted. I do not do this automatically in case they are in use.
This is a little bulky atm because I am a bit hesitant to use a mv command with the packages, so I am duplicating them.
That WILL change. The backup also takes up some space... and atm this all happens on the core drive... so... you will need a little free space...
There is no more duplication of packages. I have also added some mounting which fixes certain kinds of package upgrades with MD's that are not active.
This will work on any version of LMCE.
