    Hello,

    I feel like a bit of a fool, i've purchased 15 licenses for Acronis TrueImage Workstation and i'm at the stage where i need to create a base installation of Windows, Install Drivers & Applications and then send this image out to 14 other os-bare machines on the network but i'm not sure this product has the ability to do this?

    Can someone please confirm, i'm panicking, i have a deadline to meet and i've got so much on my mind i feel like my head is going to explode. I would be massively appreciative if someone could advise me if the above is possible with Acronis TrueImage Workstation and give a few pointers on how i would go about achieving it.

    Please help, i'm at your mercy.

    laze.

    I'd have to use Snap Deploy in conjunction with True Image Workstation wouldn't I as i understand Snap Deploy doesn't allow you to create images, only distribute images already created?

    for me that looks like you wouldn't need even 1 license for a full TI version. But i think you better wait for a official Acronis statement.

    Hello just_laze,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    Please note that there are two methods to achieve your goals:

    1. Using Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation.
    If all your computers have the same hardware configuration, you can create an image including an operating system, aplications and so on and then restore this image remotely over the network without any problems.

    You can find the detailed information on how to use Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation in the respective User's Guide.

    2. Using Acronis Snap Deploy. Acronis Snap Deploy allows you to create an exact disk image of the standard configuration, including the operating system and all applications and then deploy that image remotely over the network too.
    Please note that Acronis Snap Deploy does not include features of Acronis True Image which allows you to back up or restore individual partitions, files and folders, for example.

    Please find the information on how to use Acronis Snap Deploy in the respective User's Guide.

    Please download Acronis Snap Deploy trial version at http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/download/snapdeploy/ in order to see how the program works.

    Thank you.
