    Hello All.
    I Hope you can help.
    I am working on a PXE system and i am trying to set up a system to auto restore a image from a push of a button from a menu

    so if i pick

    1. Restore Room 10 Image
    2. Restore Office Image
    3. Restore Room14 Workstations.

    it will reimage the PC from the pxe menu

    so im wondering is there a way to get it to login to the server and restore image reset ssid and reboot. with out doing it by hand!! from a push of a button.

    my PXE command line is

    LABEL a acronis-ti
    kernel images\atiees\kernel.dat
    append rw initrd=images\atiees\ramdisk.dat vga=791 ramdisk_size=32768 acpi=off quiet noapic

    what else do i need.. to do.

    Hello DPcools,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Remote Server Backup Software.

    We are sorry for delayed response.

    Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server has an option of restoring an image without specifying any seetings when using Acronis One-Click Restore. Please notice that Acronis One-Click Restore option is only available when creating archives directly to CD/DVD media. Please see chapter 6.3.10 "Media components" of Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server User's Guide for details. No other single button restore features are available.

    Thank you.

    might as well go back to it.

    unless ver 10 will have this option.

    Don't screw around with optical disk when you're making backups, that's not a solution; it's a penal sentence.

    You can execute the same command you would use in Windows Task Scheduler only put the command in a batch file with a shortcut to the batch file on your desktop. YOu can use notepad to create the batch file -- jsut
    save it with a "bat" extension. You can right click the bat file while in Windows Explorer and slect Create Shortcut to make a short cut and drag it to your desktop.

    In ATI make a Task set to run manually. and then run the task using the command

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\TrueImageHomeService.exe" /script: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Scripts\34FAB7F6-432D-464F-A1F1-5B9C3E608B71.tib.tis"

    The name of the script file will be diff for each Task so substitute yours in the example above.

    That's for ATI11. For ATI10, take "Home" out of the pathnames shown above.
