Manual update

you don’t need to grab all the patches. watch closely what versions you can jump. besides, you can truly let the tool upgrade multiple patches at once, the only issue will be remaining space. we send them into /tmp as it’s a different moint point and loginuser has write access to it.

scp u2d-sys-9.607002-705003.tgz.gpg loginuser@sophos:/tmp/
ssh sophos -l loginuser

sudo su -
cd /var/up2date/sys/
mv /tmp/u2d-sys-9.*.gpg .
#auisys.plx --verbose --upto 9.607

if there’s not enough place in /, you can add the tarball patches e.g. by sets of three

    auisys.plx --verbose --noreboot --upto 9.705003
auisys.plx --showdesc --verbose
