         It is an operator acount to add and install new clients
         The account can create new subnet definitions
       * New omauser account omaless4
         This account can manage single clients
         It is an operator acount to add and install new clients
         This account can not create new subnet definitions
       * dist710.i386 and dist710.amd64 supports the partimage image types
         This is useful, if you have to backup large NTFS partitions
         which have only some data on it.
       * You must define an extra directory to import clients
         This is useful to seperate the import of client from the
         import of images, sofware packages and boot environments
      -- SOMA package
       * You can use the modes add and overwrite,
         if you select a software group for a client
Version 8.5b
      -- BOMA package
       * OMA account omalight is moved to omaless
       * OMA account omaligh2 is moved to omaless2
       * You have now startup scripts for all OMA default accounts
         e.g. /bin/omaadm (none GUI) and /bin/xomaadm (X-Window)
         e.g. /bin/omaroll (none GUI) and /bin/xomaroll (X-Window)
Version 8.5a
      -- SOMA package
       * You can select data levels, if you configure global settings
Version 8.4z
      -- BASE package
       * LOCALinstall OMA support a further final method
         Make_larger_file_system___4_windows_ntfs__2_ntfsresize_2012_1_15.sh
       * You can select data levels, if you configure a OMA server
Version 8.4y
      -- BASE package
       * You can select data levels, if you configure a network
Version 8.4x
      -- BASE package
       * New menu items for account omaroll2
         You can select a software group for rollout clients
         You can select a software group for one rollout client
         This is useful if you rollout different kind of
         installations to all clients in one rollout subnet.
         The clients receive the same image, but each client
         can have another setup of software packages.
Version 8.4w
      -- BASE package
       * New stack of configuration levels
         all, allnet, group, network, pattern, client
         This allows you to use the same hardware group for the
         clients even if you need different kernel definitions
         e.g. One kind of clients are using a network with
              dynamic IP allocation and other clients are
              using a network with static IP configuration.
       * New menu items for network configuration
         You can set/unset a management kernel for a network
      -- BOMA package
       * New menu items for network configuration
         You can set/unset bootprom files for a network
Version 8.4v
      -- BASE package
       * Each client put his IP address unter OMAmount/nfsrw
         if the client boots from network (z_Lastipaddr).
         This is useful if the client has received a dynamic
         IP address from a third party DHCP server.
       * You can turn on the use of the Lastipaddr information on
         all configuration levels (all,allnet,group,net,pattern,client).
       * New menu item for network configuration
         Base configuration for clients of a network
         This is useful, if a parameter for the clients can not
         set on the other levels (all,allnet,group,pattern,client)
       * New parameter for the base client configuration
         Managementpartion should mount nfsrw
Version 8.4u
      -- BASE package
       * New menu tree: "Imagelist of a network" This restrict
         the useable images for the clients of a network.
         This is useful, if you use one pattern for the clients
         but only one kind of clients have a dhcp configuration.
         The network paramter let you see only the image names
         with a dhcp configuration if the client is a member
         of the network.
       * New menu items for client lists
         You can run auto disk pattern detection for clients
         You can run auto hardware group detection for clients
Version 8.4t
      -- BASE package
       * You can use a dummy hardware group and a dummy pattern
         to import clients. This is useful, if you want switch
         your clients automaticallly later (e.g. switch group
         and pattern if you put the management partition)
       * New paramter for software groups (Noindigenf)
         This is useful for a dummy hardware group to supress
         all the checks around the creation of individual
         files for the clients.
       * You can define one default software group for each image
         This is useful, if you need this group on every client,
       * You have to allow the automatic usage of these image default
         software groups for a disk pattern. This is useful if you
         switch clients from one pattern to another automatically
         and if each pattern has his own image name for an
         operating system (e.g. Windows 7)
Version 8.4s
      -- BASE package
       * The wmicdsrmad methods wait a little bit after a client
         is removed from domain with the dsrm utility. This is
         useful if your domain is in slow motion mode.
       * The menu items to handle single rollout clients shows
         only the clients, that have images with a
         ROLLOUT or a ROLLALIAS statement.
Version 8.4r
      -- BASE package
       * New methods to join Windows 7 into a Windows Domain
         wmicdsrmad methods are using the program dsrm to remove
         a client from a Windows domain before the program wmic
         is used to join the computer into the Windows domain.
         This is necessary, if you join a client to an older
         Windows server system (e.g. Windows 2003 Server).
Version 8.4q
      -- BASE package
       * New menu items for omaroll and omaroll2
         item to change the mac address of an rollout client
         item to remove a rollout client
      -- BOMA package
       * New paramter for bootfiles
         You can set a bootfile name, which is used as an
         additional link to the real boot file. This is useful
         if a simple DHCP server (e.g. Windows) give all clients
         a dynamic IP address and the hostname can not be used to
         set the name of the bootfile. In this case, you can set
         the name mysystems.PXE for an OMA client, which has to
         use the simple DHCP server. If you activate the boot
         over network, mysystems.PXE is linked to the real
         bootfile. If you turn off boot over network,
         mysystems.PXE is linked to nothing.
Version 8.4p
      -- BASE package
       * New image paramter z_Changempartip
         This is useful if a client has a imagespecific
         client configuration and you need the IP
         address settings of the image to setup the
         IP address on the management partition too
         (e.g. deploy the client in a rollout center)
       * New image paramter z_UpdateLIP
         This is useful if a client has a local image
         partition and you need a setup of the client
         informations on the local image partition too
         (e.g. deploy the client in a rollout center)
Version 8.4o
      -- BASE package
       * New client keywords CLOCGROUP and CLOCATION
         The content is used to setup informations for
         a client in the Windows Domain if you use the
         wmicad methods to generate individual client
         settings.
       * New keyword for individual image configuration
         z_Changempartip
         This is useful if you install the management partition
         with a fixed IP address in a rollout center. The client
         comes up in the rollout center with the management
         partition and you install an image which has a
         imagespecific IP configuration. If it is necessary
         to change the IP of the management partition finally,
         you have to use this parameter (e.g. The final destination
         has no DHCP server to change the IP on the management
         partition automatically).
Version 8.4n
      -- BASE package
       * You have to allow the use of images for rollouts
         This is necessary to offer the image names for the
         rollout accounts omaroll and omaroll2
         ROLLOUT
            This keyword is used for image names with a
            imagespecific client configuration. This is useful
            if you want move the rollout client to their real
            computernames, which are stored in the imagespecific
            client configuration
         ROLLALIAS
            This keyword is used for image names that are
            used for the deployment of images to rollout
            center clients.
Version 8.4m
      -- BASE package
       * The inital OMA installation set a value for z_Backconfdir
         The default value is .backup
       * New user accounts omaroll omaroll2
         These accounts can only handle clients for rollouts
       * You have to allow the use of images for rollouts
         This is necessary to offer the image names for the
         rollout accounts omaroll and omaroll2
       * New menu tree to import clients by OMA import format files
         This is useful if you use OMA to build a rollout center
       * New user accounts omainfo omainfo2
         omainfo can get only informations
         omainfo can get inventory informations too
Version 8.4l
      -- BASE package
       * The meneu item "Ckeck all images" has more options
Version 8.4k
      -- BASE package
       * The Linux based boot instance dist710.amd64 can be used
         as a OMA management partition. The management partition
         must have a size of one GByte to match the requirements
         of dist710 boot instances.
       * The HOME of root is now /root in all OMAdist boot instances
      -- BOMA package
       * If an OMA server has a list of networks, which are
         not accessable directly by a network card of the server,
         the file OMANETSRV contains network informations for
         all these networks too.
       * New paramter for boot instances to exclude the base servers
         from the file OMANETSRV on none base servers. This is
         useful, if the clients will never contact OMA base servers.
      -- TOMA package
       * If you define an imagenary OMA server, you must set
         now the subnet of the real system too. This allows
         OMA to make an entry for the imagenary OMA server
         in the file OMANETSRV.
       * The import of server data collections use now the
         defined TTOMA backupdir to save the old data.
Version 8.4j
      -- BASE package 
       * You can set an Nextimage IP address for each network
         This is useful, if your OMA server has a network card
         into network and you use indirect deployments.
       * If an OMA server has a list of networks, the file 
         OMANETSRV contains network informations for all 
         these networks too.
       * You can use lilo_22.3.2 bootmanager definitions
         for the old OMAdist dist3.0 environment.
Version 8.4i
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item to remove hardware scans of hardware groups
       * New image types for ext4 file systems version 1.42.5
         This is useful to match the ext4 version of Debina 7.1.0
         or other Linux systems with the same ext4 version 
       * New image types for computers with NTFS file systems
         These image type have to be used for 
         OMAdist dist710.i386 and dist710.amd64  
         to use ntfs-3g tools version 2012.1.15.
Version 8.4h
      -- BASE package 
       * New set of pattern parameters to set volume size values.
         This is useful, if you want edit only the values and not
         the command that use these values.
       * New set of client pattern parameters to set volume sizes.
         This is useful, if you use different sizes for each
         client but the clients can taken all other disk
         parameters from a unique disk pattern.
Version 8.4g
      -- BASE package 
       * dist710.amd64 is a new Linux based boot instance
         to support some new versions of programs which
         make file systems (e.g. mke2fs, mkreiserfs)
         It is also a 64-bit boot instance to support programs, 
         which works only in a 64-bit environment (e.g. efibootmgr)
       * New set of image types to support the use of reiserfs 
         version 3.6.21, if you use Linux.dist710.i386
         or Linux.dist710.amd64
Version 8.4f
      -- BASE package 
       * 64bit kernels are available (_all_you_can_eat_*_x86_64)
         This is useful if you need a 64bit OMA management console
         system because some programs did no work on 32bit
         if you have a 64bit machine (e.g efibootmgr)
       * The 64bit kernels are compiled with 32bit support
         This is useful if a 64bit Linux sytstem has statically
         compiled 32bit programs (e.g. /sbin/grub on RedHat 6).
Version 8.4e
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item "Special pattern configuration of an client"
         This is useful if you need individual UUID values for
         each filesystem for each client
       * dist710.i386 is a new build in Linux based boot instance
         to support some new version of programs which
         make file systems (e.g. mke2fs, mkreiserfs)
       * New client paramter z_Externcheck 
         This is useful if you have individual UUID values
         for each client and an external client database too.
         The check find out differencies between them.
Version 8.4d
      -- BASE package 
       * You can use the following MACRO definitions if you
         configure a pattern for the use of Volume Groups
         e.g. 
              /sbin/vgremove -f    SYSPARTVG.1.3; 
              /bin/rm -r           SYSPART.1.3; 
              /sbin/pvcreate -uuid SYSPARTUUID.1.2 -ff -y SYSPART.1.2; 
              /sbin/vgcreate       SYSPARTVG.1.3          SYSPART.1.2;
         The pattern has these block devices:
              Systempartition.1.2 = /dev/sda2
              Systempartition.1.3 = /dev/vg00
              Systempartition.1.4 = /dev/vg00/LogVol00
              Systempartition.1.5 = /dev/vg00/LogVol01
              Systempartition_uu.1.2 = 11111
         The system will use these commands:
              /sbin/vgremove -f    LogVol00;
              /bin/rm -r           /dev/vg00;
              /sbin/pvcreate -uuid 11111 -ff -y /dev/sda2;
              /sbin/vgcreate       LogVol00     /dev/sda2;
       * New kind of pattern parameter to tune files systems
         This allows you to modify file systems especially
         if the make command do not allow the modification
         or it is more simply to use a tune command
         e.g. /sbin/tune2fs -o user_xattr,acl
       * New menu item to view a heterogenious client list
       * New global server paramter z_Backupdir1st to
         save new images into an extra directory
         This an extra backup which will be only overwritten
         if you remove the image manuall from this extra
         directory.
       * New image paramter z_Imgmkfsoptions to
         use extra option to format a filesystem if the
         imagename refers to an archive image
         e.g. -b 4096
              to set the block size for a ext4 file system
Version 8.4c
      -- BASE package 
       * New methods to generate individual client settings
         win7_*_wmicwg_* methods use the command wmic to
         join a computer into a windows workgroup
       * New methods to generate individual client settings
         w2012srv_* to use the W2012SRVCAR values of a client
         This is useful, if you want deploy windows 8 and
         windows 2012 alternativly on the same clients
Version 8.4b
      -- BASE package 
       * New methods to generate individual client settings
         win7_*_wmicad_* methods use the command wmic to
         join a computer into a windows domain
         This is useful, if you want not use netdom.exe
         because netdom.exe is not a default part of Windows 7
       * Changed names to generate individual client settings
         win8_*_joinwg_* is moved to win8_*_wmicwg_*
Version 8.4a
      -- BASE package 
       * The X-Window interface is available for FreeBSD amd64
         This is useful, if you want use a FreeBSD system as a
         OMA server (e.g. Systems with PCBSD 9.1).
      -- TOMA package
       * New menu item to transfer OMAcontrol data to a secondary 
         server. Only a member ot the group omactrl has the right
         to transfer such data to secondary server. This is useful
         to check the local configuration of clients on secondary
         servers against the client configuration on base servers.
Version 8.3z
      -- BASE package 
       * OMA allows cindex.sec.$USERNAME instead of cindex.sec
         This is useful, if different users needs 
         different client lists on secondary servers.
       * New behaviour for the usage of networker save set id's.
         Only the configured recovery point will be used.
         This is useful, if you have some data in your backup,
         which needs a manual restore, after the recoverd 
         system is back automatically.
Version 8.3y
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item to select an image for automatic
         installation from local OMA boot devices (e.g. USB stick)
         This is useful, if you have a touchpad that can boot
         from USB devices, but you have no keyboard available.
         (e.g. Samsung Slate 7 Touchpad)
       * New paramter in the image file of a pattern
         You can use the keyword BOOT to identify an image name
         as a name for a bootable partition. The result is an
         extra file, which contains only the image names of
         bootable images.
      -- TOMA package
       * New server paramter to compare DHCP files on other servers
         You can enter a list of server names. 
Version 8.3x
      -- BASE package 
       * The symbolic links in OMAmethoden/*links are obsolete
         OMA use now plain configuration file instead
Version 8.3w
      -- BASE package 
       * You can use mountpoint name legacy for zfs file systems
         This is useful for additional zpools (e.g. zpool home1)
       * The generated methods for freebsd (e.g. pcbsd 9.1)
         imports all importable zpools automatically first.
         This is useful because freebasd did not import
         none root zpools automatically after a deployment
         e.g. zpool home1
       * All procedures of OMA are using /mnt as the base
         directory of mount points for freebsd, because
         ZFS needs empty mount points. The directory /mnt
         is a ramdisk file system, if a client boots from 
         network into a freebsd OMA boot instance.
         Each client has his own /mnt, /etc and /var file system 
         in the memory and you can boot all clients from network 
         at the same time without any conflicts. This is useful 
         for multiple deployments of many cliens.
Version 8.3v
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item to copy template files of images, which
         are used to generate individual files for clients.
       * New imagetype freebsd_1_create_only_zpool
         This is useful, if you need an image name to create
         only one zpool (e.g. more than one zpool on one disk)
       * New set of generated methods for freebsd (e.g. pcbsd 9.1)
      -- TOMA package
       * You can use the entry :clients: to define the database
         for a seondary server. This is useful, if you change
         client list for a secondary server and you must be
         shure that all necessary software package, images
         and boot instances will be copied to the secondary
         server.
Version 8.3u
      -- BASE package 
       * Clients with no managementpartiton on disk can have
         a management partition on a bootable USB stick
       * You can select a kernel and a ramdisk, if you
         write a the OMA management console on a 
         bootable USB stick
       * You can find a predefined ramdisk name in OMAinitrd.
         0_no_initial_ramdisk
         This is useful if you must select a ramdisk for a kernel,
         but you need no ramdisk for the selected kernel.
Version 8.3t
      -- BASE package 
       * New cycle to deploy images
         0_ALL_OVER_NETWORK_NOPTT_no_partition_tables
         This is useful if yo deploy an image to a client,
         which has already all necessary partitions
         e.g. The first part of a system has Windows and
         the second part of a system has Linux. On the 
         windows part you use different types of partitions, 
         because you use different windows installations.
         But the deployment of Windows creates always
         the partitions for Linux on the second part.
         Use this new cycle to deploy Linux, if you
         want ot be shure that the windows system
         keeps untouched any time at all.
       * You can define ALIAS login accounts for LOCALinstall OMA
         This is useful, if you use a LOCALinstall OMA login account
         (e.g. lmount2), but you want to use the login name 1 instead.
         By this way you can use LOCALinstall OMA on touchscreen 
         computers and you need only a USB keypad as your keybord.
         You can define ALIAS login accounts for halt, reboot and reset.
         e.g. use 0 instead of halt
         e.g. use 00 instead of reboot
         e.g. use 000 instead of reset
         All in all a USB keypad is enough if you install your
         touchscreen computer from a LOCALinstall OMA 
         bootable USB stick.
       * OMAindi_getlists is moved to OMAindi_getf_lists
Version 8.3s
      -- BASE package 
       * The LOCALinstall OMA environment supports the 
         ntfs resize functionality for Windows images. 
       * reset is a new login acount for LOCALinstall OMA
         This account remove the OMAlastaction file.
         This is useful, if you must restart a local deployment
         and you do not need the remarks about successful steps
         of the last local deployment.
Version 8.3r
      -- BASE package 
       * You can boot clients with UEFI BIOS setups from network.
         No special DHCP server settings are necessary to do this.
         You must only allow the network boot in the UEFI BIOS setup.
         Some UEFI BIOS versions have very special requirements 
         to allow an network boot (e.g. set a supervisor password).
         Sometimes it is easier to switch into Legay BIOS.
Version 8.3q
      -- BASE package 
       * syslinux version 6.01 is supported to boot clients
         with the OMAnfsroot boot environment dist3.1a

         if you create bootfiles for NFSroot OMA boot 
Version 8.3p
      -- BASE package 
       * The kernel _all_you_can_eat.3.11.0 is available
       * The kernel _all_you_can_eat.3.4.8 is available
Version 8.3o
      -- SOMA package 
       * New menu items to run an inventory offline.
         This kind of inventory works, if you boot a client
         into an OMA management console (e.g. boot via PXE)
         This makes it possibke to check your hardware
         idependent from the installed operationg system
Version 8.3n
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu tree to manage template files of images
         to generate individual files for clients

       * You can build boot instances from FreeBSD 9.0
         and newer versions (e.g. PCBSD 9.1)
      -- TOMA package
       * New server parameter to deny the local backup of
         data before the transfer of new data starts
         (e.g images, software packages, boot instancies).
         This is useful if the server is no one the both
         possible base servers and avoid full filesystems
         on OMA servers with less disk space.
Version 8.3l
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item to change group and pattern 
         of a clientin one step

       * New special effect for Solaris sparc
         Make_partition_table_4_solaris_sparc_2_format_+_zpool
Version 8.3j
      -- BASE package 
       * New imagetypes for MacOS X
         apple_darwin_hfs_dmg_partition_image_diskutil_udco_dscl
         This new type must be used for Snow Leopard and
         newer versions of MacOS X. The use of cpio under
         Snow Leopard has a conflict with some obscure
         new features of the HFS+ filesystem version
         of Snow Leopard (e.g. hard links to directories). 
       * New imagetype for MacOS X
         apple_darwin_hfs_dmg_partition_image_diskutil_udco_hdutil
         This new image type can be used for Tiger and older 
         versions of MacOS X without the dscl program
       * New OMA LessTif library for x86_64 Linux systems 
         e.g. Debian 6.0.7
       * X-Windows OMA programs are compiled for x86_64 Linux
         e.g. Debian 6.0.7
Version 8.3i
      -- BASE package 
       * New pattern parameter: serial number of disks
         This is useful, if you create disk pattern
         for solaris systems with disk serial numbers
         in device names. You can enter the serial number
         only once and use the makro SERIALNUMBER as 
         a place holder in the device names.
         e.g. 
         Serial number of disk one: HG678JGKLMBQ0B77
         Device file name for grub: /dev/rdsk/c0t1SERIALNUMBERd0s0
         Device file name slice 3 : /dev/rdsk/c0t1SERIALNUMBERd0s3
       * New option to edit disk pattern values: _serialnumber
         This makes it possible to change all serial numbers
         of all configured disks in one mask.
       * New item for omanano and omanano2
         Change disk pattern of client
         This is useful to allow the change of serial numbers for
         the hard disks of an disk pattern.
       * New image types for MacOS X to create JHFS+ file systems
         This is necessary for SnowLeopard and Lion
Version 8.3h
      -- BASE package 
       * The kernel _all_you_can_eat.3.8.4 is available
Version 8.3g
      -- SOMA package 
       * OMA checks the MAC address of the client identifier card
         if you deploy software to a client. OMA looks for the 
         file /OMAMACID/omamacid to find the MAC address of the 
         client identifier card. The best way to provide the file 
         /OMAMACID/omamacid is the use of an software package. 
         You can use the demo package 0_win0all_omamacid_2_cygwin.
Version 8.3f
      -- BASE package 
       * You can use all configured network cards as
         OMA management cards (e.g. card one and two)
       * You see all OMA management cards if you deploy
         or recover a client. This is useful if a client
         offer more than one OMA management card.
         e.g. The client is able to boot from LAN or from
              WLAN into the OMA management console.
              OMA client name: slate3
              OMA ip name one: slate3
              OMA ip name two: slate3wlan
      -- SOMA package 
       * You can use now 42 differnet ways to deploy software 
         ONLINE to an client. If you select e.g. the parameter 
            sonmac00._Online_delivery_on_all_allowed_cards
         OMA will try all network cards, which are configured 
         for ONLINE software deployment.
Version 8.3e
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu item to create a bootable OMA management
         USB stick with grub 0.97 as the bootloader.
         This is useful to avoid the use of syslinux 
         for the creation of a bootable stick.
      -- SOMA package 
       * If a client has more than one OMA management card,
         you can use these cards to deploy software online.
         This is useful if the client is not acessable over LAN
         e.g. notebook systems and touchpads with a docking station
Version 8.3d
      -- BASE package 
       * You can use card 2 to 19 as additional management cards
         This is useful to setup LAN and WLAN too, if the client
         boot into the OMA management console.
       * You can define one network card of an OMA client
         as the client identifier card (e.g. card number 2)
         This is useful to identify a client, which boots
         from the LAN card of a docking station. If
         the on board WLAN card is your client identifier card, 
         you can boot the touchpad in each docking station, 
         but the OMA system deploys the right data to the client.
         (Boot touchpad slate2 in the docking station of slate3)
       * New image type to deploy Solaris ZFS installtions
         Make_bootable_only_______4_solaris_sparc_zfs

         software packages of hardware group and client
         in a seperate list.
Version 8.3b
      -- BASE package 
       * New menu items to add additional kernels and ramdisk.
         You can add or delete the files on all four OMA levels.
         (all clients, hardware group, disk pattern, one client)
         This is useful to avoid an overflow for the management
         partition, if you use a lot of additional kernels.
       * Mount points for disk patterns can have two parts
         seperated by @. This is useful to recover zfs
         filesystem which are used for solaris zones.
         e.g. /rpool/data_zone/root@/data
Version 8.3a
      -- BASE package 
       * ALL 1300 menu items are available in the WEB interface
       * You can install OMA in FreeBSD 9.0

         The parameter nw2clnaddssid add this information
         The parameter nw2clndelssid delete this information
       * New menu items to create disk scans of clients
         This is useful to find out all disks and all
         partitions which are in use on a client.
         You can use the scan to configure or overwrite the
         values in the disk definition of a disk pattern.
       * New parameters for image transfers (_XSTOPPKG_...)
         This is useful, if you need break after a certain
         software package deployment to control anything.
         e.g. Put an image and set the stop after package four
         0_ALL_OVER_NETWORK_XSTOPPKG_04_stop_after_SOMA_package_04
Version 8.2z
      -- BASE package
       * New clientinfo parameter - nw2clnaddssid
       * New pattern value for block devices - special_root
         This is useful, if you have the file grub/grub.conf
         always on the same disk partition (e.g. /dev/sda2).
      -- TOMA package
       * Fix wrong package permissions on destination servers.
         This is useful to avoid error messages due to
         wrong permissions if you transfer an package.
      -- SOMA package
       * The example package for the networker recoverry
         use the ssid values of a client, if they exists.
Version 8.2y
      -- BASE package

         This is useful, if you have unstable return codes
         of 3th party backup programs (e.g. networker)
       * Two new OMA accounts are available
         omanano  - pure recovery menu interface with six items
         omanano2 - pure deployment menu interface with six items
       * New submenu "Manage permissions for OMA admins"
         You can edit the permissions list,
         add key words to the permissions list or 
         delete key words from the permission list..
         Available permissions list are
            Clientkeysdlgall._Single_values_of_client      
            clientcontrol.____Control_client               
            clientinfo._______Informations_of_client       
            omaserver.________Switch_to_another_OMA_server 
         At least you should define a Clientkeysdlgall list for 
         the new OMA accounts omanano and omanano2.
         e.g. allow ETHERNET and NETWORKER only
      -- TOMA package
       * New parameter to define the last OMA server which has
         to receive data from the first OMA base server.
         Normally you should define the second 
         OMA base server as the last OMA server.

         individual retrieved files of pattern or group.
         This is useful, if you want place solaris on different
         primary partitions and you need a different
         findroot entry in the menu.lst file.
         e.g. findroot (pool_rpool,0,a)
         e.g. findroot (pool_rpool,1,a)

       * New image type to run parted 
         linux_0_none_filesystem_no_files_run_parted
         This is useful, if you setup one extra image name
         as the initial image name of an ALIAS agreement
         to be shure that the parted command runs only once
         for an deployment or recovery process.
       * New image types to avoid the use of partition files
         _none_partitions
         This is useful if an initial image name makes the

       * New image type to write the master boot record only
         Make_master_boot_record_4_linux______2_lilo_option_M
         This is useful if an final image name must write the
         master boot record to fix wrong informations from
         earlier images names in an ALIAS agreement.
       * Newer methods to create ZFS file systems and ZFS pools
         You can now use the disks and partitons commands feature
         of an pattern to set additional ZFS parameters.
         e.g. zfs set refquota=50G ZFSNAME
       * Two new OMA default client parameters
         NETWORKER
         NETBACKUP
         This is useful, if you want use the example recover
         software packages for your recovery purposes.
         You can use these values for any other 
         none OMA backup program too.
       * New kind of pattern parameters - mount commands
         This is used by the example software package 
         recover_1_recover_mount_all_file_systems
         to mount all partition under the bigball
         directory if networker or netbackup are
         used in a recovery process.
Version 8.2s 
      -- BASE package
       * More selections if you want change pattern parameters

         of informations about a client.
       * You enter a global list of networker server ip adresses
      -- TOMA package
       * You enter a list of networker server ip adresses for
         each OMA server. This is useful if an OMA server
         can not reach each networker server
Version 8.2q 
      -- BASE package
       * Support of e2fsprogs version 1.41.12 for OMAdist 3.1 and 3.1a
         This is useful, if you must use ext4 filesystem (e.g. RHEL 6.2)
       * You can enter UUID's for ext3/ext4 file systems on OMA pattern
         or for an imagename. The UUID will be used, if OMA creates
