Symantec GostCast Server

Hi

I have a question about Symantec GhostCast Server.

If I ghost a w2k Client with
Symantec Ghost 7.5 Corporate Edition
via network ( LAN )
using TCP, all the time I have to start
manually Symantec GostCast Server
and press on "Accept Clients" and "Send"

Is it possible to do it full automatically ?

I'd like to boot the client
with the ghost boot disk and that's it.
The Image will be loaded full automatically.

Can someone explain, how it works ?

kind regards
chris

Re: Symantec GostCast Server

You usually build the Boot Disk through the Ghost Boot Wizard, and specify what you want it to do at boot.

Chris,

Ghostcast server has an option under "more options". It is called auto start. You set the parameters of how many clients you want before the image starts.

Open up ghost server and look for the button ""more options" on the left side of the screen. Click on it and you will see Auto Start with three boxes under it. Fill in only the client count. Then set all the other parameters as if you were doing it manually.

Re: Symantec GostCast Server

Chris,

Cynthia is right. If you put the number of clients under the More Options button, The Ghost Cast Server will not ask you to click on send. Moreover, you'll still have to key in the Session name at the target workstation end, to automate the process at the Client side, add this line in Autoexec.bat in the boot disk:

ghost.exe -ja=SessionName

Where SessionName is the same name you specify in the Ghost Cast Server!
Hope this help!!
