WIN 7 Rollout

Hi,

Would Backup Exec be the right software to rollout WINDOWS 7 images. I have a standard WIN7 computer with Raid 1 and need to roll it to other identical 10 machines.

If Backup Exec is not suitable please name the software which would help me in rolling out WIN 7

Thanks

No, as the name states it is for backing up and restoring files, folders and full servers. You are interested in Ghost...check it out below:

Alternatively there is Norton Ghost:

If I am not mistaken, Ghost is superceded by SSR (Symantec System Recovery).  It may be renamed to VSR (Veritas System Recovery).

No, they still have the Ghost suite as mentioned. Check below:

This is a valid application to roll out multiple machines with the same image.

Thanks!
