    Description For systemback

    Systemback makes it easy to create backups of the system and the users configuration files. In case of problems you can easily restore the previous state of the system. There are extra features like system copying, system installation and Live system creation.

    Hello
    Are you sure to use Opensuse?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    Fortunately openSUSE is an rpm distribution not a deb system, we use commands like zypper, but you won't get far with apt....

    So, what you need to do is look at a program called AutoYaST to take your installed image and duplicate out to additional pc's.

    Hi
    Then you need to look at http://openbuildservice.org/2017/09/...tudio-express/

    Again, if you create an autoyast file it will deploy your image/files?

    Or you want to go around 100 systems and install on each?

    Hi
    Yes, which can be done by the autoyast and the program called kiwi locally or on Studio Express.

    If all the PC's are the same hardware, hard drives etc then use dd?

    You can create an image that will auto install just plug in a usb device and boot?

    Just do a standard openSUSE install and then create a patch cd (Yast add on product) of the configuration files and any additional rpms and deploy to the machines?

    You want to create a custom image?
    I wouldn't recommend AutoYaST, that more or less is a way to script installations.

    To create custom images you can just apply, I'd recommend either OBS/Studio (online) or Kiwi (offline/local)
    Here is the Kiwi documentation

    https://doc.opensuse.org/projects/kiwi/doc/

    But,
    If I just want to standardize a setup,
    I prefer instead to create a Build script.
    Build scripts have the flexibility that images don't have... A proper Build Script isn't locked into any specific versions so will automatically support updated OS, apps, etc.

    The following is an example of a somewhat complex Build script I've posted (actually several, you run script 1 and then your choice of Script 2)

    Installing Devstack which is a demo-sized version of a popular Big Data Analytic engine which can be deployed across an unlimited size cluster of machines
