Network Image

Recommended Posts


How easy is it to image over the network? I need to be able to boot a computer anywhere in the building and install an image. Is that possible?


Hello There,

Yes, it is possible to image a computer over the network. The easiest way to do this with out further setup is to simply boot the computer with the SmartDeploy boot media created by the Media Wizard, either CD/DVD or USB and then connect to a network share that contains your image.

If you would like to add additional infrastructure to the picture you can setup PXE boot. SmartDeploy uses Windows Deployment Services as a PXE boot provider. There is some more information on this setup, as well as using multicast here.
