TFTP on Mac OS X 10.7 shell script

I've just started getting into Cisco support a little more. It's my goal to eventually specialise (its probably the first time I've found something in I.T. support that I don't eventually get bored with ). Since I've got about 1 of each OS I need make sure I can perform my job on anything. Was working on my macbook pro and needed to download some router configs. Give tftp a kick on Mac OS X 10.7

#+ A quick script to enable/disable tftp (for use with cisco devices).
#+ Usage: on


if [ $# -eq "$NO_ARGS" ] # no arguments?
 /bin/echo "Disabling tftp."
 #+ Always unload, just to be on the safe side.
 sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
 #+ Cleanup any files so they aren't floating around ;)
 /bin/echo "Removing default tftp files."
 sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tftpboot/running-config
 sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tftpboot/startup-config
 sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tftpboot/flash
 if [ $1 == on ]; then
  /bin/echo "Enabling tftp."
  #+ Load the daemon
  sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
  #+ Must be a file to send/receive one. Setup some Cisco defaults.
  /bin/echo "Creating default tftp files."
  sudo touch /private/tftpboot/running-config
  sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot/running-config
  sudo touch /private/tftpboot/startup-config
  sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot/startup-config
  sudo touch /private/tftpboot/flash
  sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot/flash
  pushd /private/tftpboot
  /bin/ls -la /private/tftpboot

Mac OS X "SOE" Day 7

Page Redirection> continued from day 6...

In summary, here is my method for creating a Mac OS X 10.7.3 Standard Operating Environment "SOE" Image.

Overview The goal is to create a "MASTER" non-booted SOE that can be used with multiple models and it multiple sites with different local requirements.

My intention is to use this "MASTER" image in a manual restore procedure due to the fact netboot facilities cannot be made available to all the sites I support however the DMG files are netboot compatible.
