[wpkg-users] test packages upgrades

What I have done is set up two different profiles with normally identical contents. One profile is for production machines and one is for my test machine. In the hosts.xml I have the test machine host assigned to the test profile. When I want to test something I change the profile definition and restart the wpkg service on the test machine (I have a powershell script which I use for this). If everything is good, I then change the production profile to match the test profile.


Kind regards,
Bill Prentice

I've been meaning to set up a second share directory on my Samba server with WPKG packages. My test workstation would check-in with that directory instead of the normal one. Use symlinks for the software and most of the XML packages; use real files only when testing.

I don't have detailed information, sorry. But there is more information on this kind of idea in the list archives somewhere!

Good luck
