I have found that using sftp to transfer files between servers can be a big time saver. In the case of remote multiple server upgrades transferring the installation packages to the servers on site can be time consuming. Using sftp which is running by default on our VSM servers will enable you to only have to transfer the installation packages to one server on site. Once the packages are on site, sftp can be used to copy the installation packages from server to server. This procedure can also be used for any other files transfers that may be necessary between VSM hosts. I hope you find this sftp excersise useful.
