I have about 30 servers I need to set up in less than a couple days. I was thinking of doing the following but need someone's expert opinion on whether this will work or not. All servers are idential hardware specs and software applications.
1) Setup 1 server RAID volumes (RAID 1 for OS and RAID 5 for other data), install Windows 2003 SP1 OS, updates and other applications. Run Sysprep.
2) Use ImageX to create .wim image on a WDS server
3) Boot other servers using PXE or Discovery boot image and deploy image created in Step 1.
There are obviously a lot more steps for each of those things, but that is the basic idea. Are there any pitfalls to be aware of when imaging servers with RAID volumes or will it work similar to a single volume system once the image is deployed?
Thanks in advance.
