    Hello!

    I'm using Acronis Disk Director within a RIS-Server and it works fine.
    Now I'm looking for a possibility to create a custom disk director boot image for my RIS Server to automate the process of partitioning the harddrive.
    Is there any possibility to do that?


    Thanks in advance!

    Now I'm booting the Acronis Disk Director image created by the Rescue Media Builder and partition/format the harddrive by hand.
    What I'm looking for, is a possibility to automate this process, e.g. to boot a created acronis disk director image from the RIS server and disk director partition/format the harddrive itself without any user interaction.

    Got my problem?

    Unfortunately there is no straight way to automate this process. Actually you can not automate partitioning/formatting when booting via RIS.

    You can use Acronis Snap Deploy (http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/snapdeploy/). It allows you to deploy an image of Master Computer which has a number and size of partitions you need on another one remotely via network using Management Console.

    To learn more about Acronis Snap Deploy please read user's guide

    Thank you
