Instructing Ghost Solution Suite 2.5 clients to backup to secondary drive
Like others in the forum I work in a test lab. I recently tested Ghost Solution Suite 2.5 in our environment.
The primary network in the lab is being used as a WAN, each test LAN is isolated via a router.
Ex: WAN: 192.168.1.x
LAN1: 192.168.2.x LAN2: 192.168.3.x etc
Some of the workstations, XP Pro or XPe, are limited in RAM and horsepower Remember, this is a test environment.
I was able to manually install the client on some of the workstations and tested Ghost Console. The workstations responded with 2 pop-up warning messages, but did not continue the image task.
I installed MSDOS client on some of the workstations, they only have 256MB memory.
Because the routers and workstations are limited in their capabilities, I would like to know if the client can be ‘instructed’ to do a partition or disk image to the secondary hard drive in the system. Instead of back to the Ghost server.
This will allow me to do a fast ghost image to the secondary drive, and then afterwards I can do a windows copy to the ‘image’ location.
When I need to do a restore, I can attach a CD drive to the second IDE cable.
Also, does the Ghost Client get imaged with the partition image?
