NOTE: In the event of a software upgrade or install by Xerox,
Xerox is not responsible for the restoration of the above items to
the DocuSP controller.
NOTE: It is highly recommended that a complete system image

Having a current system image stored separate from the
DocuSP controller will ensure that in the event of a failure of the

will provide a hardcopy of the system configuration information,
such as the contents of the /etc/hosts and /etc/hosts.equiv files,
the list of user names from the /etc/passwd file, and gateway

information needs to be recreated, the hardcopy will assist the
System Administrator in restoring the system. Any customized
software, saved files, or unique third–party information will have

installation is performed and there is no system image saved, the
System Administrator will have to restore or re-enter, at a
minimum, all of the information included on the hardcopy output
provided by the Xerox Customer Service Representative.
