    It needs to operate like MS RIS - only better :)

    Create a backup image of a system over the network - ie PC image is created by putting bootable media (or pxe boot) into the PC which then connects to the server and transfers the image over the network for storage.

    That image can then be at any time put onto any PC in the network regardless of HAL by either PXE boot or bootable media boot and pulled down onto that PC so it can be deployed straight away without us having to be there to enter licence codes, time date etc. Preferably a random or keep the same SSID would be good.

    We must be able to create individual images for each server also.

    This product must also be able to do Linux and Unix images as well as windows no problem.

    Thanks for your help guys!

    Hello nzbn,

    Welcome to Wilders.

    You might look through the sticky just above your post here for some information while you are waiting for replies.

    I also closed your other post on the same subject. Duplicate posts are not necessary and can cause confusion.

    Hello nzbn,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are very sorry for the delay with the response.

    We recommend that you use Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation or Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server for Windows (depending on the operating system used on the computer that is being imaged\restored) in conjunction with Acronis Universal Restore for your purposes. These Acronis True Image versions allow you to perform the backup process remotely controlling it from one main machine saving backups to any type of the supported media including CD, DVD, internal, external and networked hard drives, ect. Using these Acronis True Image versions you can also restore the beforehand created image archive to any of your computers by booting them from Bootable Rescue Media or from PXE (Microsoft RIS Server is used for remote boot-up). Acronis Universal Restore mentioned above allows you to deploy an NT operating system without having any worries about HAL or different hardware configuration. Both these products include the support for the number of the most popular Linux file systems and the special sector-by-sector support for the non-supported or corrupted file systems, so you can backup Linux and Unix partitions as well. Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server for Windows also provides you with the special Linux Agent which can be installed on the Linux based server(s) and used for remote backup operations. You may also be interested in Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Linux which is specifically deigned for backing up Linux based servers.

    You can find the detailed instructions on how to use the products mentioned above in the respective User's Guides.
