ost is a simple yet powerful tool providing mechanisms to automatically audit, maintain and backup systems customizations. ost is particularly well suited to environments where most systems are similarly configured, but will operate just as well if each system is unique.
ost uses at least one of the following two sets of input:
· the system's file catalog if it exists
· user defined "templates" to override the system's catalog
These allow ost to build a virtual image of what the local filesystem is supposed to look like. This image is then compared to the actual state of the local filesystem to obtain the following information about the system:
· List of intact files
· List of modified files
· List of missing files
· List of additional files
· shmux (optional)
What's New in This Release:
· The release fixes Solaris zone access via SSH.
