Lesson 10. Implementing Deployment Solutions > Managing Computers With NetBoot

Managing Computers With NetBoot

Think about the ways you boot your computer. Most often, your computer starts up from system software located on the local hard drive. This local startup provides you with a typical computer experience of running applications, accessing information, and accomplishing tasks. Sometimes when you perform OS installations or system upgrades, you need to boot from a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM.

Managing a single standalone computer isn't much of an inconvenience. However, imagine managing a lab of computers. Every time you need to upgrade the operating system or install a clean version of Mac OS X, you would need to boot each computer in the lab from the installation CD or DVD. Even with a set of installation discs for each computer, it would still be time-consuming to update or refresh the entire lab.
