Question about Computer Servers
We have Linux server scattered all across N. America and everytime there is a corruption on OS, we have to send a new server to distance location to replace the corrupted one. I was wondering is there any way to install new images ( using acronis or ghost) to these servers remotly or from central server without having to install the image here in HO and then send the server out to remote location. Its just adds to logestics cost becuase there servers are dell power edge 1850 and they cost lo of money to ship.
If you're using any any flavor of redhat (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora), this can be easily done using kickstart. It's a preconfiguration utility to allow a user to simply type a single one line command after booting from a cd, and completely install a whole server remotely. Comment back with your linux distro, and maybe I can give more specific details.
