Remote Installation services

Hi Guys,

in our company, all our clients are HP machines, although there are 3 different models. What i want to do is to build one machine up properly of each of the 3 models, and then create images of these to roll out to the rest of the clients. Is this possible? and if so, how would i go about getting started?

i have installed the RIS component on "add/remove software" but i want to know how to rip an image of a machine onto the server. Also, how will things like XP licenses, and Office Licenses work out? unfortunatly, not all of our office licenses are on Open Licenses. Is this going to be a problem?

Thanks, Gavin

you can try using RIPPREP.

As far as licensing goes, I'm not an expert but believe you need a VLK or open License agreement...but I honestly do not know :-(
