/usr clients

I've seen the term "/usr client" use frequently in recent discussions -
I know what a diskless client is and what a dataless client is, but
exactly what the heck is a "/usr client" ???

  Platform           USR              ROOT       DATA
  ----------------------------------------------------
  Diskless           remote           remote     remote
  remote /usr        remote           local      local

 You can install a machine as a remote /usr client by choosing
 the appropriate option during the system install process.

1. 3.2.0 to 3.2.3 on /usr clients

Hello,

I've got a problem I'm sure an AIX guru will easily solve :

Having :
 - two standalone machines, one in 3.2.0 and another in
3.2.3,
 -  and a few /usr clients of the first one (i.e. the 3.2.0
server),

what do I have to do on clients to upgrade them to 3.2.3 ?

. Can I simply mount the 3.2.3 /usr on clients and then they
become 3.2.3 ?

. Do I have to apply 3.2.3 (and 3.2.2 and 3.2.1) PTFs on the
clients ?

. If so, how is it possible ? I could never get away from the
message :'another installp is running...' when using installp
on a /usr client.

Thanks in advance !
