Easy to use Management Console

Reduce deployment costs, complexity, and time
You can build a reference system using the unattended OS installation wizard, including adding core software and required configuration. Once your reference system has been built you can automatically take an image and mass-deploy to your new and existing systems, fully hardware independent and in any remote locations around the world.

Simplified inventory, software and configuration management
Once a computer is in day-to-day usage ongoing tasks like inventory, software management and basic asset management are also important areas that must be addressed. Ghost Solution Suite 3.1 makes it fast and easy to deploy, configure, and upgrade software on managed devices including being able to group machines based on application versions for easy targeting.

 

System Requirements

Ghost Solution Suite Agent (DAgent and ADLAgent):
Agents require network connectivity and 10 MB of disk space. Other system requirements are the same as for the host operating system.

Ghost Solution Suite Server:
Symantec recommends running server components on a modern, dedicated server with a 1-GHz or faster processor with 1 GB RAM or more. At an absolute minimum, this server should have a PIII-compatible 600-MHz or newer processor with 1 GB RAM.

Notes: If the database will be hosted on the same computer as your Ghost Solution Suite Server, a minimum of 1 GB memory, with an additional 1 GB, is recommended. Computers hosting additional PXE servers and file shares should meet the requirements of the operating system hosting these components.

Automation Requirements:
Microsoft recommends 512 MB of memory for computers booting WinPE. At a minimum, you should have 384 MB to avoid boot errors.

Note: If the SQL Server Express database is installed from within the Ghost Solution Suite 3 installer, then .NET Framework 3.5 or above is also a prerequisite.
