How to Clone machines with SSD and HDD?

  • Banned

    What’s the best way to completely clone computers with 100GB SSD and 1TB HHD. I’ve sucessfulyl cloned machines with 1 HDD, so this is an entirely new configuration for me.

    Is this possible? Can you please provide step-by-step instructions? Thank you so much.

    @dttars02 Cloning systems with two or more physical drives can be done in two different ways. One is to select “Multiple Partition Image - All Disks (Not Resizable)” as within the image definition. As you see from the name it is not doing any resize operations in that case. So if all your machines (master as well as destination machines) have identical disks (not just similar size but exactly same sector counts!!) you can use this option. The image size captured on the server won’t be 100 GB + 1 TB as FOG will still only read the data used on the disks instead of raw sector copy.

    If you need to have resizeable images to be able to deploy to different size disks you have to split the whole thing into two parts: two image definitions, two capture tasks, two deploy tasks. If you really want to go that way, please ask here and we’ll give you more instructions on this topic.
