What you need is to boot a machine with Clonezilla live and run it as the Clonezilla lite server, then you can use it for massive deployment.
For more info, please refer to this step-by-step docs. Clonezilla Server Edition How to setup a Clonezilla server? There are 2 ways you can do, i. Two types of files are available, iso and zip. Once the boot media is ready, you can boot it on the machine you want to run as DRBL server. After it enters X-window, you can click "Clonezilla SE" icon to do the runtime configuration. Then it will prompt you how to do that. To install and configure a DRBL server, check this installation doc then follow it to setup such a Clonezilla server.
The setup might take about 30 minutes to a few hours, it depends on your internet bandwidth. For how to use the latter mode, you can refer to here. If you prefer to use DRBL live, remember to isolate the network environment from others. This will keep you from cloning the system to incorrect or unknown clients. This is annoying sometimes. In this case, you can even use the "impatient method" to setup the DRBL environment. How to use Clonezilla server edition? As root, run "dcs" in DRBL server to switch clients' mode.
You will see two menus: clonezilla-start and clonezilla-stop like this: Check clonezilla-start by "space" key, various modes will be shown: clonezilla-save-disk: clonezilla save disk mode clonezilla-restore-disk: clonezilla restore disk mode clonezilla-save-parts: clonezilla save partitions mode clonezilla-restore-parts: clonezilla restore partitions mode clonezilla mode This is what the graphic mode looks like: Again, check the mode you want by "space" key, then follow the menus to do it.
To stop clonezilla: As root, run "dcs", then choose "Clonezilla-stop". Or you can use "drbl-ocs stop". Examples: The following is an example of how to save an image from a single computer called computer M and then restore it to 39 computers in a computer classroom: Set the Clonezilla server to be clonezilla-save-disk mode: In the Clonezilla server, run "dcs", then choose "clonezilla-start" use the space key to mark it.
Next, choose"clonezilla-save-disk" use space key to mark it Turn on computer M, set it as network boot PXE or etherboot in the BIOS or by pressing the hotkey refer to your motherboard manual when it is booting. Now enter the name e. Otherwise, it will use the image and device name you already inputted in the clonezilla server to save the image. Once the image is saved, set the mode to be clonezilla-restore-disk in the Clonezilla server.
As an example, in the Clonezilla server, run "dcs". Next, choose "clonezilla-start" use space key to mark it. Next, choose "clonezilla-restore-disk" use space key to mark it. The program will ask you which source image to restore. In this example, we chose the image "nomorems. The clients will begin to clone the system image "nomorems" to their harddisks. More examples are available here.

Clonezilla SE Server Edition has been developed from , and it is used to deploy many computers simultaneously. It is an extremely useful tool, however, it does have several limitations. To address these limitations, we have combined Debian Live with Clonezilla as "Clonezilla Live," a software that can be used to easily image and clone individual machines. The primary benefit of Clonezilla Live is that it eliminates the need to set up a DRBL server ahead of time and the need for the computer being deployed to boot from a network. Though the image size is limited by the boot media's storage capacity, this problem can be eliminated by using a network filesystem such as sshfs or samba.
Well, one option would be to keep it to the disk you used to save it in, store the disk, and use it whenever you need it. Another option would be to create a DVD you can use to restore this image. Old command-line options are no longer supported. When the system comes up, it will load the program that will preform the backup. After that continue from this step. If you need to change these settings, select one of the available Clonezilla Live menu entries, and press TAB.
