Managing Program Binaries in a Heterogeneous Unix Network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents some of the techniques adopted in the Computer Science Department at the University of Edinburgh for providing a consistent user environment across a large network of heterogeneous workstations. These include system management techniques that allow non-privileged users to maintain and install network-wide application packages, as well as software and techniques for automatically distributing and replicating program binaries across the network.
