Install / Move config.

Reported by: josiaslg Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone: 7.1
Component: Installer Version: 1.4-DEV / 1.4-BETA
Keywords: Install / Move configuration Cc:


Hi, this is new suggests to the project about installation and after that.
In the install, some special version of this software with PXE boot enable. This special version is for companys/schools/government that want install this software in 10 or 100 in the same time without burn discs. In this version, could have some management of pre-installed applications. In fact, this is very useful for big installations. After that, some centralized management of users and your rights on the system, and applications too, can make the system go to do top in companys because of easy network control of all organization.

  • A option is the system have a PXE inside, and, remote computers boot from there.

The other thing is make some application to migrato archives and configurations from Widnows Users Profiles, and easely get emails, personal archives, images, everything that user have and give this to PC-BSD organized in folders.

  • A option is the PC-BSD have some profile or configuration import, but just some configurations like the custon menu and icons positions. Some default files too, but without change the username or password.

Sorry about the long post again. Thanks.

This is an idea I've had on the mind here for a while. I do plan on adding this at some point, ether for 2.0 or 1.5 not sure which it'll make it into yet :)

  • Milestone changed from 7.0 to 7.1

This is something related to Fenestros BSD, which I plan on helping them with after the release of 7.0. I'm hoping to come up with a PBI solution, which lets you turn PC-BSD into a PXE server, and then run thinclients from it.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This can be done with 8.x now, create a custom installation image and roll it out via pxe or even DVD / CD.
