Distribution of incremental disk images: a systems management environment implemented in Rembo Toolkit
2004 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis deals with scalable cloning of modern operating system installations in a network, heterogeneous in terms of hardware and software requirements. The main problem examined is distribution of pre-installed software for Microsoft Windows (incremental images), using an implementation written during this thesis work in the pre-OS management platform Rembo Toolkit. In addition, the problems of computer group configuration managment and pre-boot operating system customization will be treated. The purpose is not only to give an example of a management tool suitable in a certain network environment, but also to address some customization issues arising when cloned operating systems and incremental images interact with widely used network services. However, some drawbacks in the incremental imaging approach derived from certain applications rather than Rembo Toolkit has been identified, thus limiting its overall usability.
