Hi,

I have 35 or so DELL Optiplex GX150 PC's that I want to sell locally to customers looking for basic computer systems.  I would like to be able to provide a CD for the customer that will have a backup ghost image of their computer in case they ever need to get their computer back to the original configuration.  Is anyone familar with the licensing agreement for Symantec with Norton Ghost 2003.  Is this something that they allow for a person to do as far as their licensing goes.  I only wanted to have a 1 user license copy of Norton Ghost.  

Thanks,
Mike

You can't do that. Each machine that you use ghost on needs to be license. So if you restore on 10 pcs, you need 10 licenses.

License
The agreement that allows you to install the Ghost Client on a computer. Each purchased license allows you to install the Ghost Client on one computer. The number of purchased licenses is the maximum number of client computers that can connect to the Ghost Console at the same time. For example, if you purchase 10 licenses, then you can install the Ghost Client on 10 computers and connect all 10 computers to the Ghost Console at one time.

Ghost is licensed for use with one source computer, or for use with one source computer and one destination computer. Typically, restorations, disk-to-disk, and partition-to-partition operations are performed infrequently in single-use situations. For this reason, no switch or one-time-entry function for the license number is provided. If you need more comprehensive licensing to support a larger number of computers, you may want to consider the corporate version of Ghost 7.0. For more information, see the document Have to type serial number many times.
