    We are installing a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server and want to deploy Windows XP Professional to about 65 client workstations from the server.

    We were planning to install one workstation with Windows XP Professional, make all the policys, permissions settings and then image same (True Image) and deploy it out from the Windows 2003 server.

    Can this be done?

    If so, then how would it be done?

    Thanks. :doubt:

    UPDATE 3/31/05
    I received this e-mail from Acronis on 3/31/05 and it is as follows:

    I am afraid that the current version of Acronis True Image Corporate Workstation does not support multicasting. This feature will be implemented in future versions.

    We suggest you the following workaround:

    Using Acronis True Image 8.0 Corporate Workstation you will be able to create special bootable rescue media. You then boot from it each computer where you need to deploy the image and restore the image to one computer at a time.

    We recommend you to download the free trial version to see how the software works on your computer. The trial version is available at the following link:

    Please be aware that according to Acronis software licensing policy, you need to purchase one copy of Acronis program for every computer where it will be used.

    For volume licensing request, please contact our Sales Team at

    We are always at your service should you have any further questions.

    Thank you.
    Sincerely yours,
