[Planetlab-users] how to automate installation of software on

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I used "multiquery, multicopy" before. My
understanding is "multiquery, multicopy" do not guarantee successful
completion. In my case, the whole installation process on each PlanetLab
node has more than 10 sub-steps while each sub-step installs one package
(or, "copy, make, and install" one tarball) and depends on the success of
the previous steps. I thought using "multiquery, multicopy" will not be
reliable. However, my guess can be wrong. Please advise. Does coDeploy have
more reliable tools which can guarantee the success?
