 Building a FreeBSD Build System

Setting up a faster way to keep your FreeBSD servers up to date.

"To set up a FreeBSD build system, you need three components. A build server is the first requirement. It should be either a fairly beefy uniprocessor or a lesser SMP-based machine. The second component is a staging server, which is basically a test machine where you can test the build without potentially destroying a production box. This doesn't have to be a machine with much fanfare, but it should be as close as possible to the rest of your machines to ensure an accurate test platform. The third component, called the build set, consists of all the clients to which you want to install the updates. These are your production machines."
