    How to capture and deploy Linux images?

    Apprentice

      Are there steps any where that shows how to capture and deploy Linux images using LanDesk 9.6?

          Capturing Linux images is not much different than capturing any other images.

           

          Use the ImageW tool which is a sector-based imaging tool, so it will capture the entire hard disk.

           

          In LDMS 9.6. there is a pre-defined template that can be used to capture images that makes it quick and easy.

           

          If in LDMS 9.6, under Provisioning click "New Template", and then "Capture Template", and then there will be a simple dialog box to fill out.

            The capturing is not the problem. I got that OK. The real trick is in deploying. In 9.6 with out some serious scripting or modification this does not seem possible.

            Getting the partitions correct is where things do not seem to be possible because 9.6 does not support the formatting for Linux.

            Does anyone have some steps that will work in 9.6? The Deploy temple alone will not work.
