There's been sadly little time to work on svr031. However, now work with our nuclear physicist community seems bound to involve the installation of new machines on the cluster, so things have to begin in earnest.
I have recovered the lftp mirror scripts, so that's a start here.
Next I have to look at making a proper SQLite database of machines and extracting a dhcpd.conf from that. Fortunately the tftp root was not lost, so that part of the boot process should be ok.
