Ghosting DL320 G5

I am trying to image a DL320 G5 with SATA RAID using Ghost Cast.

I first attempted to push out the client from the Ghost Console and that failed, so I am now booting to a USB key. Ghost starts , but I cant choose Ghost Cast, i am assuming because of problems with the NIC. Is there a trick to this I am missing?

Re: Ghosting DL320 G5

I haven't used Ghost, partly because I don't like doing business with Norton. However, if you haven't taken a look at Rapid Deployment Pack (Altiris Deployment Solution, licensed by HP) is an awesome product. With a little bit of configuration, I'm able to deploy images and script out custom configurations very easily.

Re: Ghosting DL320 G5

I got a ghost boot disk that can detect and install the NIC drivers for the floppy
Driver location --> http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/25925.html

- extract files
- Use the q57.dos driver located in DOS\NDIS2\q57 dir to create the Ghost boot disk
- If all fails then make a Ghost boot disk and replace the NET folder in the floppy with my zipped NET folder.

NOTE: I did all of this, but I could not get the Ghost disk to access the disk subsystem. + HP said that they dont support any imaging utility + cant help with any imaging utility including MS ADS v1.1. MS ADSv1.1 also fails when accessing disk
