Problems with symantic ghost
Posted on 2005-03-30
I am using Symantic Ghost corporate edition 8.0 and the procedure I followed is
I have installed Symantic Ghost console client software on client machine during the installation I have given the Image server on which I have to store the image.
Client machine and server machine are present on the same network
I have Installed Symantic ghost Standard tools on Server machine
and I have followed a series of steps given in the manual after performing series of steps when I started the imaging, a window automatically displayed on the client machine which indicates that there is a communication between server and client machines
then on server machine it gave me a warning that
"There are machines in the task that may use the virtual partition but do not have a valid template selected. This may cause the machines to fail this task. Do you wish to continue "
when I press continue if works few seconds and then terminates the imaging process.
This happened several times. I searched on net and found no solution to this.
I tried another method here on client machine I have created client boot floppies using Ghost Boot wizard, here in Network Interface Card it did not show my NIC (Which is 3COM Gigabit NIC (3C2000)) I have tried installing the driver from my NIC driver CD I have tried installing NDIS driver and Packet Driver it did not work with Packet driver but worked with NDIS driver. I have finished creating boot floppy, and when I tried to boot the client machine with these boot floppies it did not show me "Ghostcast" option" I mean it is disabled, I need this option inorder to select "Directed Broadcast" option.
So I was unable to do imaging using both these methods. If anyone is aware of this situation please help me.
