Norton Ghost License

Posted on 2008-03-02
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have several machines that I would like to image with Norton Ghost using an image from a pc that has one license.I don't want to install Norton Ghost on any of these machines. My plan is just to boot each of this machines with Noton bootable CD and then launch Ghost and image each machine from an image that I have previously created.
My question is do I need a license for each machine that I image even if I don't install Ghost on any of these machines?

Yes - you need a Ghost client licence for each PC you deploy a ghost image on - it makes a subtle entry in the registry so that an auditor can see that ghost was used to image the PC.

That might seem a little unfair - but, my comapany charge 95.00 sterling an hour to build a PC, its about 3-4 hours to manually build a client PC and applications in a clients domain.

so now the licence seems good value for money :)
