    Hi all,
    my main interest in TI is domain network imaging.

    Would much appreciate it if you can add your own experiences to the notes I have below:

    (scenario: you have source-A, and you boot to CD on client-B)

    1. Make sure you have file-sharing and TCP/IP running on source-A
    2. Make sure source-A has entries for client-B in its HOSTS and LMHOSTS files.
    3. Shares on source-A should be less than 12chars.
    4. Shares on source-A should be Everyone-allowed.
    5. Don't share drives, instead share folders. For example, if you share C:, very difficult to see the drive, instead share the exact folder of the images.
    6. On client-B, at eth0 network options, only enter the IP address and subnet mask, but nothing else. I have a legit gateway and DNS server, but entering those actually caused problems.
    7. On entering the IP address, enter one that source-A knows about (i.e in its HOSTS and LMHOSTS files)
    8. The network info is a one boot deal. If you need to change the info in eth0 such as IP address or even if you want to see new shares on source-A, forget it. Reboot client-B everytime you need to change a network setting.

    TI is the RELATIVELY the best solution for network imaging. One CD does it all. Just wish that the bugs were not there.
