Ask Slashdot: Mass network backup/wipe On: 11/28/2011 Views: 30
I am required to backup and wipe several hunderd computers. Currently this involves booting it up, running a backup script, turning it off booting off a pendrive and running some software that writes 0s to the drive several times. I was wondering if there was a faster solution. Like a server on an isolated network with a switch where I could just connect the computers up, turn them on and get the server to backup the data and wipe the drives.
