About AClone Server

AClone Server has many features and scripts that will work together with Clonezilla Server editiion in order to facilitate its use . We highlight some features like interacting with ARecover Live and restore multiple computers at the same time ( in multicast mode ) , acting as a storage image server, ease in choosing the image to be created or restored through lists and so on.

AClone Server can create and restore images via PXE ( via network) and their images were saved locally on Linux where the AClone Server is installed .

We have 3 ways to restore: unicast , broadcast and multicast:

  • Unicast can be used to restore a single computer .
  • Broadcast can be used to restore multiple computers but all computers in the network will receive the data .
  • Multicast can be used to restore multiple computers at the same time, having a great performance and only the computers that connect to the server will receive the data broadcast .

Setting Network

Confirm the information data network if they are correct to work locally with internet (IP, subnet, gateway, DNS). 
If you have only one network card on the server select the "VIRTUAL" item if you have 2 or more network adapters select the "Ethernet BOARD" and enter the value of the card you want to distribute the images(eth1, eth2,..), the board which will run the DHCP, PXE, .. 
It is advisable to have two network cards and use the mode "Ethernet BOARD" to configure the network, so the internet would be the eth0 and the restorations would be isolated in the network using eth1 card. 
By the end click the "Configure Network" button. In the questions that appear on the terminal, press ENTER. 
If you want to know how it was configured network adapters click the "INTERFACES" or "IFCONFIG" button.

Now click the "INSTALL AND CONFIGURE CURRENT NETWORK" button. In the questions that appear on the terminal, press ENTER. Attention! At this time we will decide whether this server will work to clone Windows / Linux or Mac OS, see the image below and click YES if clone PC's or "NO" if will clone Mac Os. 
If you have a mixed network of Windows / Linux and Mac OS, we recommend creating two servers, one for Windows / Linux and other server for Mac Os.
