Default Disk Imaging

How about a disk imaging or "ghosting" how to, that would utilize server based storage of the images with compression for faster transfer over a network.

Please have a look here:

http://www.howtoforge.com/dedicated_...e_systemimager
http://www.howtoforge.com/howto_linux_systemimager

These are no traditional system image (files) like the ones you got for example with norton ghost, but they have some pro's:

1) Fast compressed transfer over the internet.
2) Easy, even automated backups
3) Easy restore even on dedicated servers where you only have a mini linux rescue system.
4) You can restore the backup on a different disk with a different disk geometry or even a server with different hardware without problems, as long as your linux kernel supports the hardware of the new server. I've copied a fully installed linux server with this method from a via mini-ITX borad with via processor to a 1HE system with Intel P4 system flawlessly.

Smile I knew you would know how

Right on the money. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I have to say, that yourself and Falko have what I find to be one of the most useful websites around. Good Job and thanks for your good work.

Question System Imager

Current using system imager in goldenclient / server mode at home where i have a debian server in place (thanks to your guides ). Is it possible to make a install DVD with the system on it. This is so i can go to a remote site and install a operating system onto a new hard drive.

Many Thanks

William

I don't think so. I think you always need the server.
