Hi, I am creating 30 Thinkpad monitoring OS/2 4.52 workstations. All systems are going to be identical, so am looking for a means of distributing an installable image - this will save me a lot of "aggro".

Now in the past I have used various tools - Ghost, Drive Image, etc.. But these will not support LVM, without some manual "jiggery pokery".

Does anyone know of imaging software that does fully support LVM? I understand that DFsee has imaging/cloning abilities, will this give me what I want?



We are what we consistently do, excellence therefore is a habit, not an accident.

DFSee can create images of partitions and is LVM aware, so it is probably your best bet. See http://www.dfsee.com/ for details.

Hi Jos,
Have you read and learnt chapter 2.9 of the readme.txt ?

That is the solution for your multiple installations
and there is also a Redbook for it !!
