Options to deploy.

  • Hi there!

    I've been analyzing clonedeploy in my spare time and recently started at an internship @ a school where they are in the mids of
    upgrading some computers in a isolated engineering lab.
    So i've been presenting clonedeploy as a better option than the dos cloning option they are using at the moment.

    With the old method they clone a hdd 1 on 1.

    After they saw the wonderful workings of clonedeploy my
    enthusiastic manager asked me an awesome question.

    [b]''Could I connect a Cloned hdd to the CDserver and have clonedeploy deploy the disk onto clients?''[/b]

    The only way i could see this work is to plug the drive into a client, upload and deploy to clients.
    Or am i overlooking a functionality of CD? 😄

  • No, it doesn't work that way. You always need to boot a client machine into one of the imaging environments to capture that image. I'm not sure what the advantage would be of pulling a hard drive out of a computer and connecting it to a different computer to create the image. Seems more complicated to me.
