    Mass Installation


    Hi,

    How can I install linux OS (Fedora, CentOS or Opensuse) on 1000 servers at a time ?

    I would like to know the mechanisms used for professional setups for mass installation or mass updation of patches.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was thinking that Kickstart could do this for CentOS and maybe Fedora, but I'm not sure about openSUSE.

    Maybe someone else can reply with additional, or more specific information.

    Thanks Ozar.
    I am also exploring kickstart. I have came to know about one more mechanism using cobbler which is available at : https://fedorahosted.org/cobbler
    Thought of sharing with you too.

    Try clonezilla server edition. It is similar to Ghost, but it can also be used for mass installations (unicast, broadcast and multicast are supported)
