Doing a remote buildworld is just too dangerous for an production
box and expensive in backups because you have all the source files
to deal with. The more popular method of updating a remote system is
to have an local development box that has same components and do a
fresh install to a empty ata hard drive and them ship new HD to
remote site and swap for old one. If needed, you recover by swapping
old one back in. Or another popular way is after populating new HD,
build an bootable system on a cdrom then ship cdrom to remote site
and swap that.

Hi.
Im running FreeBSD 5.3-Release #0 and would like to do buildworld
and
buildkernel.
The problem is that the machine is a remote one.
Handbook states that to run "mergemaster" and "make installworld" I
should
boot into single user mode.
That would mean that I can't access the machine remotely anymore am
I
correct?

Would it be okey to run make installworld when running in multiuser
mode and
being the only person whos logged on and maby shutting down most of
the
network services (leaving my sshd running though) ?
