    Capture UNIX system from OS provisioning - Bare metal

    Apprentice

      Hi,

       

      Is there any option to capture the UNIX OS from OS provisioning feature.

       

      I am having LDMS 9.6 SP2.

          Hi Sayed.Abbas,

           

          You should be able to boot to WinPE and run the same Windows capture template using ImageW to capture Linux.  ImageW is a sector based tool, so it does not care what OS is on the system; it will simply make an exact copy of it.

           

          The deployment side will be a bit more in depth as you will have to configure the boot loader and deal with drivers.  I have not done this so I cannot speak to this point but I know it is possible.

           

          Hope this helps,

          Peter
