Hi, I've been using Linux for years, but am new to openSUSE, thanks to the really nice 11.2 release.
I have 12 identical PC's in my classroom at work, and I would like to install OpenSUSE 11.2 on all of them, doing a master install/configure on one machine and cloning all the others to be identical to the master install. (All 12 are networked via Ethernet).
I have two virtual servers for hosting my web app. They are identical, running Debian 6 with 1.5GB of RAM. I configure the OS and Tomcat using a script from a fresh install, so I know they are identical.
My webapp runs in Tomcat and I set 850M heap and 100M perm size. My app regularly dies on one of the servers.
