We want to install the AF 6.5 Client on a staging image that
will be ghosted and then copied to hundreds of client Win XP
machines. Is this possible? If so, what is the best way to
install the Client so that when the ghosted image starts up
on a newly installed PC, the client connects and creates
it's uniuqe Client ID on the Afaria server? Thanks!

Tim,
Yes, you can include the Afaria Client on your Ghost image.
After the Afaria Client has been installed on the client-PC
and that client has connected to the Afaria Server, a
ClientID and GUID is created on the client-PC. You need to
remove these pieces of information from the client-PC prior
to creating your "Master Image" to avoid duplication.

You can email me at Darryl.Endo@sybase.com I could send you
the process.

Thank you,
Darryl
