Symantec Ghost Solution Suite

Accelerated imaging and deployment for desktops, laptops, tablets and servers

Symantec Ghost™ Solution Suite is an award-winning software solution for imaging and deploying desktops, laptops, tablets and servers. Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 introduces the Deployment Solution 6.9 console and its core capabilities for operating system deployment, migration and cross-platform management. Combined with key functionalities from Ghost Solution Suite 2.5, like Ghost Cast Server and DeployAnywhere, Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 accelerates and simplifies imaging and deployment.

System Requirements

Ghost Solution Suite Agent (DAgent and ADLAgent): Agents require network connectivity and 10 MB of disk space. Other system requirements are the same as for the host operating system.
Ghost Solution Suite Server: Symantec recommends running server components on a modern, dedicated server with a 1-GHz or faster processor with 1 GB RAM or more. At an absolute minimum, this server should have a PIII-compatible 600-MHz or newer processor with 1 GB RAM.
Notes: If the database will be hosted on the same computer as your Ghost Solution Suite Server, a minimum of 1 GB memory, with an additional 1 GB, is recommended.
Computers hosting additional PXE servers and file shares should meet the requirements of the operating system hosting these components.
Automation Requirements: Microsoft recommends 512 MB of memory for computers booting WinPE. At a minimum, you should have 384 MB to avoid boot errors.
Note: If the SQL Server Express database is installed from within the Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 installer, then .NET Framework 3.5 or above is also a prerequisite.
