I am in the process of setting up 15+ machines in our network where all the machines are identical to each other where there are no difference between them. The problem is that I feel it being time consuming to setup the same setup on all machines since I will be spending at least an hour or two per machines which can turn out to be a very long setup process.
I am quite sure this should be possible but I have no clue of how to snapshot a system and deploying this snapshot on a clean ubuntu installation, does anyone with a kind soul have any takes of how I should go on with "cloning" a setup and then push this setup to the other machines?
Basically I was hoping that my deploying process would look like this:
Install ubuntu on all machines
Configure one machine with the base configuration and packages I need.
--> push out this setup to the rest machines.
Any takes on this?
I have done some googling and found Clone Zilla but it seems too advanced for such a small task... could Partimage possibly do the trick? psychocats.net/ubuntu/partimage
