Which Imaging software is all the rage nowadays?
Posted on 2011-04-26
Hi folks! Just thought I'd get some opinions on what people are using to image and re-image machines on their domains?
A little about my situation--we're currently using Acronis Trueimage Home to create "universal" system images within a VirtualBox environment, loading them up with drivers and copying them to a bootable USB drive that we use to reimage our computers using a "Bare-metal Restore" option.
I've fooled around a bit with Ghost and found it somewhat lacking--but never with a Ghost Server that could serve our images across the network to multiple PCs at a time. Would this be worth looking into or is there anything more robust?
I don't really see the need for Sysprep as we use Win7 Enterprise and it's connected to an enterprise activation server. But I could totally be missing something REALLY important in that regard.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to store all of our images on our NAS or FS and keep the working image off my local computer here (right now Virtualbox is installed on this very PC, which could go up in flames at any minute).
So--Desktop Engineers of the World--what are YOU using?
