Proceedure For Mass Imaging Via Acronis Enterprise Server

I am taking on a project where I will be mass imaging approximately 6,000 computers using Acronis Enterprise Server. I am familiar with using Acronis for server backups as well as using Acronis Home for reimaging workstations one at a  time. I am looking for the exact proceedure for imaging 15 or 20 workstations (or more) simulaneously via Acronis. Does anyone know the exact proceedure for this? Would I use the Acronis Server Console to distribute the images or use a boot disk in each workstation to access the image on the server? Please be specific as I have one day to get the basics together. Thanks to all.

For massive deployment (6000 computers), Snap Deploy is the only answer. You can call Acronis to see if they can give you an upgrade option for Snap Deploy since you have Enterprise Server version. It will save you some cost instead of purchase a whole package. What I have read that they have deployment upgrade option:

Call them and find out.

What you need is Snap Deploy features. You need to read this guide to deploy your PCs. It is a complete instruction that shows you how to create image repository as well as license server... Starting from page 24, you will see the screen shots of all the steps. Here is the guide:

I am reading it now. So, what you are saying is that there is no way to do this with Acronis Enterprise Server software right? I beleive that A.E.S is only for imaging servers. Would this be correct? That is what I used it for. My disadvantage is that I do not know what Acronis components this company has that I am going to on Wednesday. Is Snap the only way?
