cd punch-deployer-<version>
echo "export PATH=`pwd`/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bash_profile
source .bashrc

Configuration setup

Next, create your platform configuration directory.
This directory will hold the description of your target platform with the and the punchplatform-deployment.settings files.

Create configuration directory:

cd ~
mkdir pp-deployment-conf
cd pp-deployment-conf
echo "export PUNCHPLATFORM_CONF_DIR=`pwd`" >> ~/.bash_profile

Create logs directory:

cd ~
mkdir pp-deployment-logs
cd pp-deployment-logs
echo "export PUNCHPLATFORM_LOG_DIR=`pwd`" >> ~/.bash_profile

Then update your environment
