Ghost local hdd to multiple PCs over network without creating image

My goal is that ghost local hdd to multiple machines over netowork without creating ghost image for local drive first.
just like peer to peer ghost over network, we can select local source drive and copy it to remote hdd on network, but that way, it only allows me to ghost one machine at a time. So, basicly I want to copy one hdd to multiple identical hdds on network directly without ghost image files.
so, is there a way to do it for multiple machines?

PLEASE NOTE: I don't want to create image of local source drive first, then run ghost server to distribute image to network machines, because that cost more time for me.

I do not think that this is possible with Ghost.

In nay case I think that your network bandwidth is going to be the issue so that you will not be able to do  more than 2 at once in any case unless you have 1 GB backbone.

I hope this helps !

well, lets assume my bandwidth is fast enough :)
actually, when I multicast a ghost image to 30 machines over network, I didnt see any trouble.

OK, even if you use multicast of the same image, I do not see any way to do this via any version of ghost.

You still need to create an image file first.

IF You need faster restores, put the image files on the local machines in a separate aprtition.

How big is the standard image file ?

How often is it changing ?


I hope this helps !
