load(8) 						      System Manager's Manual							   load(8)

Name
       load - down-line load software to a target node

Syntax
       /etc/load [ node ]

Description
       The command loads software to an unattended target node.  The target node is loaded by the host that executes the command.

       The  command requires the identification of the service circuit over which the load is performed, the Ethernet hardware address of the tar-
       get node, and the service password needed to gain access to the target.	This information is included in the nodes database entry  for  the
       target  node.   A node entry is defined with the command.  For further information, see The node is the name or address of the target node.
       A node name consists of from one to six alphanumeric characters.  For single networks,  a  node	address  consists  of  a  decimal  integer
       (1-1023).   For	multiple  networks,  a	node  address  consist of two decimal integers (n.n), where the first indicates the network number
       (1-63), and the second indicates the node address (1-1023).

Options
       -p   Uses the specified service and password (next arguments) in accessing the target node.  You can omit a target node's service and pass-
	    word from the nodes database for security reasons, but you must then specify the service and password in the command line by using the
	    option.

Examples
       # /etc/load bangor -p 130fe
       This command causes node to be loaded by the ULTRIX host node executing the command.  The ULTRIX host uses the load files specified in  the
       nodes database entry for node to perform the load.
