Works with clear limitations
vor 6 Monaten
Kommentare: We do an annual PC replacement and have an incredibly small staff. The idea was this would get us through the process much faster. Well we lost a considerable amount of time going back and forth with support over the claim of partition shrinking not working as advertised. This feature works only with GPT partion drives and we were replacing a number of MBR drives that were in-place upgrades to win10. Well despite reproducing repeatedly on-demand with support and showing the issue only existed with MBR disk they left it simply as a windows limitation although we used a number of other products like Macrium, smartdeploy, KACE that are able to completely shrink an MBR partition fine. I have no more time on the clock to fight this with them so we've just moved on creating department-level images and will deal with user profiles afterwards. That aside when used with a GPT drive its phenomenal! Just wish they would understand that this product limitation needs to be disclosed and addressed.
Cost can't be beat compared to alternatives. Rapid image capture and deployment with no user interruption or interaction. Task sequencing feature useful if you know install switches for the product. Driver agnostic deployment is wonderful.
Only works fully as described for GPT drives. If capturing image of a MBR disk shrinking partitions for deployment does not work. So any images captured from in-place upgrades you'll need to ensure the target PC has the same size drive or higher as a minimum even with the partition shrink.
Warum ManageEngine OS Deployer gewählt wurde:
Faster, easier user interface, web interface, on-demand images with no user interruption or interaction, no scripting, minimal learning curve, quick ramp-up.
Gründe für den Wechsel zu ManageEngine OS Deployer:
We have a number of ME products and have been very happy with all. Support is great, they're open and amenable to product changes which is great for product development and longevity. And of course there's the cost - even with the massive headache of the MBR issue its still worth it by comparison.

Deploy OS images on the easy way
vor 4 Wochen
The user interface is very easy to use when creating the image of a computer, you can schdule tasks to display the image through the network using the mac address of the computer.
May be the fact that you need a DHCP server in order to deploy the image.
