Capturing and deploying a Windows image

The ServerGuide Scripting Toolkit provides sample Altiris jobs to perform operating system (OS) imaging tasks using Altiris, such as capturing a copy of an installed OS and deploying an image to a target server.

Before you begin

Before deploying an OS image to a target server, you might need to perform RAID configuration on the server. To run the Capture Windows image sample job, Altiris Agent must be installed on the donor system. The scripted OS installation jobs provided by the Toolkit automatically install Altiris Agent.
