I have a rig that runs debian testing.
I want to use it as a ghost server for my 15 other pc's
But witch LINUX ghost software makes images of a windows pc and put the the image on his own harddrive?And if 1 pc needs the image ( our company installs a new fresh image every week ) how do i get the image of the ghost server and install it automaticly on de windows rig?
please help me
We are running Symantec ghost enterprise edition on windows now.. but i don't like windows anymore.
I put partimaged which is the image server of partimage on my linux server. It is handy to also run dhcpd on the server.
Then I upload and download images by booting up with the system rescue cd and running partimage ( Note: without the d ) .
Here are my notes on setting up the partimaged server on Redhat. I don't know if this would be different on other distros.
One thing to watch out for is to have the same version server and client software or you may get an error.
Also, don't forget to make a password for the partimag user.
Unpack partimage-0.6.2.tar.bz2 and cd to the newly created directory called partimage-0.6.2
The instructions for configure are found in /redhat/partimage.spec as follows....
./configure –prefix=/usr –with-sysconfigdir=/etc \
--with-log-dir=/var/log –disable-ssl –enable-all-static
Create the default user partimag with a password. Then run the following commands:
echo partimag >> /usr/etc/partimaged/partimagedusers &&
chown partimag /usr/etc/partimaged/partimagedusers &&
chmod 600 /usr/etc/partimaged/partimagedusers
Create a directory on the server which points to the location for saving the uploaded images. For example... mkdir /mnt/images
Then mount that partition with the command: mount /dev/hdb1 –t vfat /mnt/images
Start the server with the command: partimaged
I am still thinking of the subject . but is the next posible?
Server: ftp server
Client Step 1 : ghost to server.
i already have norton ghost 7 enterprise
i will lauch ghost and make a image of the partition on the client.
the image itself is going to the debian ftp server ( the ftp server only runs within my network)
Client Step 2 : image to client
i will instal a 3com boot menu and wil make a link to the image ..
