bootThawed.sh -- Thaws a Deep Freeze Partition

Synopsis

sudo bootThawed.sh
sudo bootThawed.sh <mountPoint> <computerName> <currentUsername> <dfUsername> <dfPassword> <bootThawedFor>

Description

This script thaws a partition that has been frozen by DeepFreeze. This script assumes that the partition to which the machine is currently booted is the working DeepFreeze partition. To thaw a partition that the machine is not currently booted to, see thawPartition.sh The number of reboots for which the machine will remain thawed is hard-coded to 1 reboot by default, but can be customized by either passing parameter 6 through the Casper Suite, or by hard-coding the number of times via the "bootThawedFor" variable in this script. Note that a reboot is required to finalize the freeze process. We recommend using the "Reboot" tab in a Casper Remote session or a Casper Policy to perform this process. This script should be used in the scenario where you would like to thaw the partition to which you are currently booted. To thaw a partition that you are not booted to (i.e. when using Casper Imaging), please see thawTargetPartition.sh.
