OS Deployment via PXE - Preparing and Using Images in Many Small Environments (MSP)

view story

http://serverfault.com – I've got a project going on which I'm running into a bit of a roadblock on. I'm interested in learning if there is a better alternative to what my MSP does for OS deployment, currently. Most of our clients are small (10-20) seat environments - we try to keep each workstation identical for the most part. Currently, when a computer needs to be wiped and restored, we walk the client through taking an image of a healthy computer on Acronis, and putting it onto the first machine. Then we change the host names, switch the key codes, and disjoin / rejoin it to the domain (the computer being off duri (HowTos)
