How to create a differential flash archive?

I had created a flash archive of server1 at nfsserver:/export/S10install.flar
Then I installed client1 using nfsserver:/export/S10install.flar

Now I have updated/upgraded/patched server1 and would like to create a differential flash archive.
so that I can install it on all other client including 'client1'. How Can I achieve it?
#This is the way I am trying.. on server1
 
mount -F nfs nfsserver:/export /a
flar create -n s10update -A /a/S10install.flar -x /a /a/s10update.flar
 
#Am I doing it right ?
