updatenode always downloads the postscripts from the mn/sn. So if you change the scripts under /install/postscripts on mn and sn, the latest copy will be used on the nodes.

Does "updatenode <node>" check the SN or MN to make sure it has the
latest postscript ?

What happens if the script was changed prior to running updatenode?

Cheers.

Hierarchically the mounting is not going to work,  when the only way to
the node is through the service node.  Also after the install you should
be able to run updadenode <node>  postscript for any of the postscripts.

Perhaps an nfs mode of operation as an option could be had (if we had
something like curlftpfs ubiquitous, we could have done that).
Retrieve-on-access could benefit again. Same for installs, for different
reasons. Some nfs solutions don't scale, but for smaller setups or
scalable nfs implementations, some OS installers deliver better
performance nfs.

This is because some scripts are calling other scripts. It hard to
decide which scripts will be used from the postscripts table. And
because the total size of the scripts are not that significant, so we
decided to download all for now. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

why does xcatdsklspost download everything in from postscripts

Instead of checking what postscripts its actually suppose to run??

Thanks.
