Deployment Solutions - deploying pre-created image

Created: 24 Oct 2012 | 2 comments

Hey guys,

Is there a way to add a VMDK file to the image database that Alitirs looks at? I know the location is based on where the agent is installed - however when capturing an image the image itself is associated with Altiris in a proprietary way correct? Meaning simply dropping and dragging an image into the ...\Deployment\Task Handler\image\{GUID}\ folder will not work?

Is there a way to push a pre-created image to a client machine?

have a look for this  . Importing and deployment of img and gho files is no problem. But take care that there must be an agent on the client to manage it.

Altiris does not support vmdk file as image file. but as md investigate mentioned you can use ResourceImportTool to import images. Using 'ResourceImportTool' you can import both windows/linux image either as backup or syspreped(disk) image. For windows image you can specify OS type also.

Image can be imported from Local, UNC, HTTP location.
