Multiple installtion of rx2660 server

I have to install rx2660 25 in number,i have installed the OS in one server ,now i want to recreate the same configuration in all the servers without using the tape.Is it possible.

Hi,

You can use the Ignite software to recreate the same installation on all your systems, have look at next link.

Shalom,

If you have hardware raid, you can set up raid 1, and simply remove the raid copy disk and use it to boot the next server.

Or you can use Ignite Golden Image to make software copies of the system.

You even don't need a golden image. You can just use the original OS ignite image and copy it to other systems. (only few command lines, but forget exact commands)

Also, in the original server, you need to modify file /etc/bootptab for booting other systems.

With both of them ready, the remaining thing is easy.
