[THIN] Re: Ghosting Windows 2003

how does that work out with the Metaframe Farm?

any hoops to jump through there or will it straighten itself out?

I'm not sure about the hardware Greg, but make sure you've got newsid (I
think current release is 4.03, has support for w2k3) from sysinternals.com.
This does exactly what it says on the tin!

Subject: [THIN] Ghosting Windows 2003

I am adding a server to my farm.  An IBM x335.  My existing servers are
two IBM x330 and an IBM Netfinity 7000.  The 335 is already installed
and running with Windows 2003 and Metaframe XPa FR3.  I have some users
testing it and it may get a few more tweaks, but otherwise it is all
set.

If I ghost it and restore the image onto the x330 servers, will it
recognize and fix the hardware differences?  They are not that different
but there are differences.  Then I am assuming there needs to be some
renaming etc before I plug them back into the network.  They will be
keeping their old windows 2000 names.  I am just trying to get them
running on Windows 2003 and I really don't feel like re-installing
everything by hand three more times.

Am I out of my mind with this approach or is this possible?

Thanks!

Greg
