Norton Ghost 2002 and multiple workstations
Posted on 2002-07-20
I was exposed to Ghosting a number of years back and only knew a little about it at that time. One thing that I remember was that your ghosted image was machine specific, meaning that it would only work to clone machines with the exact same hardware.
I am now in charge of 65 workstations and am looking for the easy solution to rolling out new PCs and also to repairing the ones that go south.
I am planning on using roaming profiles and having users store all data on the network so that if a machines problems are not easily fixable, we can just re-ghost and re-boot.
My question is 2 fold:
1.) How does Norton Ghost deal with different machine types? If I have 10 basic types of hardware for all of my workstations, do I need to have 10 different Ghost images?
2.) If you understand my intention, is this the best way to go about it?
