Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Ghost Solution Suite

We use Ghost Solutions Suite to manage upwards of 1000+ PCs on our network. We create scripts to push out applications and other stuff to lots of computers. We also use Ghost Solutions Suite to image computers without having to touch hundreds of computers. We image all of our lab machines every summer.
  • Pushing out scripts and jobs to computers
  • Remote imaging and pushing out Windows OS Images
  • Helping to track who pushed out what jobs
  • It's incredibly slow at times. When multiple users are using the console, it gets even slower.
  • The dialog and popup boxes do not get bigger. Some lines can be very large and it can be hard to read the scripts.
  • The BIOS must be reconfigured sometimes if a legacy boot is not being used when network booting for reimaging.
  • Helps to manage remote computers
  • Helps to manage software licenses
  • Helps to track and manage usage
It helps to manage the mass of computers we use. We use GSS to see where and who deployed software to what computers. This can particularly be helpful when dealing with license usage, and tracking how many licenses we have left, and where those licenses have been used. We are able to use it to manage clients.
