I had a quick question about syspreping my workstation. I am creating single image for all of my workstations, but what I do is use “windows setup mngr” to create a sysprep.txt file and reseal the process with a “MiniSetup” and “Pre-Activate” so that it can finish up on its own, but as soon as the workstation restarts I take an image of the harddrive.
From there on whenever I want to image a new computer I deploy the image to the respective computer model and the windows setup runs. Has worked great, but has anyone had problems doing it this way?
Even thought I have syspreped my machine and it says that the SID will change once it goes through the installation I want to make sure that on the next workstaion I deploy this image to a different SID# will be generated. Any advice or thoughts will be appriciated.
Thank you in advance.

RE: Which configuration do I need?
On the wiki there’s info how you can add mulitple servers for load balancing but what I have done is added little more RAM to my workstation to improve performance and I have imaged about 7 computers at a time and haven’t had problems. I am not sure why you are using such a powerfull system when I have FOG on a quad core HP5800 workstation with 4gb of ram and haven’t had any problems. I have a 1tb drive as local sotrage and when I need to backup, I copy them to our extrnal USB drive that goes offsite. No performance downgrade whatsoever. Still deploys image at a gigabit speed.
You can deploy to multiple workstation and what you do is create a txt file with the MAC addresses, then upload to fog. The MAC addresses will be in the FOG database then you create a group if you want and deploy.
Or you can go thourgh the fog webinterface, register each workstation and then put them in a group and deploy without having to create the txt file.
