Re: debian-specific machine cloning
I use systemimager for complete image backups of machines.
You can upgrade a system completelly remotely.
Has deb files.
And configure it so the network address is set for each machine.
I use it for 140 linux desktops.
I also use it for my servers, my primary webserver went down...so I
grabbed a new machine off the storage bin, plopped in the cd and voila I
had a complete copy up and running in 15 minutes.
