OS Imaging

Centralized OS Imaging

The OS Deployment automation starts at capturing the image of the OS, which will then be deployed to systems as and when required. Organizations, typically, capture the images of various OS that they use and store them in a central location, preferably in a network share or in a removable media. These images are used for deployment to either new computers or to corrupt PCs as required. ManageEngine OS Deployer supports imaging a system in both offline and online mode:

Online OS Imaging

Online Imaging

Online imaging means that the master system is imaged live (without reboot or suspending operations). Online imaging can be performed remotely whenever you need.

Offline OS Imaging

Offline Imaging

Offline imaging means that the master system is stopped and the master computer boots into ManageEngine (or PE) environment.
