How to Perform Standalone Image Deploy?

  • I am new to TheOpenEM tool but I am familiar with the older cousin Clonezilla. I like them both very much however the nice UI that has been created with TheOpenEM is great. Thank you all that contributed.

    What I am trying to do is create a solution for an offline fully standalone image restore capability. What I mean by this is that I want to be able to take a current image capture, put it on a bootable media (thumb drive/Blue Ray/etc), boot that media and then use the TOEC UI to install the local image.

    The purpose is so that I may be able to ship media to external supported personnel or sites without them having to stand-up a local TOEMS server.

    So far all I have found in the documentation, tutorials and this forum is the method to create the boot .iso for a client that will allow that TOEC client to access my networked TOEMS server.

    Any help understanding how to achieve this is much appreciated.

  • Thanks for your inquiry but that's not how Theopenem works. You must have a network connection to the server from each computer you want to image, it could be LAN or WAN since images are deployed over http.

  • @theopenem_admin Thank you for your prompt response. With that would you happen to know if I can use an older Clonezilla software product to restore an image captured by TheOpenEM?

    Thank you.
