Save partitions across a network with Partimage

In my last article I showed you how to save a partition from a drive to a local image file using the Partimage tool (see my article “Copy partitions on your system with Partimage“). And although (as a reader did point out) Partimage is limited by not supporting ext4 file systems, it still has plenty of uses. One of those uses is copying partitions across a networking. In fact, Partimage has a tool, the Partimage server
, that can be used as a storage facility to hold partitions that can then be imaged onto multiple machines. That can save you quite a bit of time when you are imaging numerous systems. This can bring much relief in disaster recovery as well as desktop or server rollout.
In this article I am going to show you how to set up the Partimage Server as well as save an image to it from a remote machine.

Clonezilla can save the image it makes to a remote machine effectively via sftp.
