Ghost / Partimage / or other ?
My question is for those that have used these products and can tell me the pitfalls that they may each have so I can avoid them while testing.
My objective is to create an Image of a server Full OS included ( under 700 MB ) so it will fit on a CD.
We have many new servers that we wish to configure identically so the capability to slap a bootable CD in the drive and install a Clean image is needed.
some of the concerns I have are:
If the current servers disk is 80 GB will I be required to burn 80 GB worth of image even though the "OS" image is under 700 MB ?
Can "Ghost for Linux" copy an image to a CD / or multiple CD's ?
How about Partimage ?
Which software would be best to use to accomplish this and why ?
Any special considerations after image is copied, ie Boot loader issues ?
or will the image be capable of booting as it did on the machine that the image was taken from without having to do additional configurations.
(reason for this question is that we have non-technical people that may be installing the image and I would like to make it as simple as possible)
Any advice is appreciated.
