Ghosting or Imaging Information

Not all of the software required by this class support imaging. Only DB2 v8.1 supports ghosting (see the special instruction in the installation document). All the other software must be installed individually on each machine after the image has been replicated to that machine and its host name has been changed.

You can save time by copying the contents of the CDs to temporary folders on the hard drive and then imaging that hard drive. After restoring the image to the other computers and changing the host names, you can then install the software from the temporary folders individually.
