Proposals for this user

* Hacking Clonezilla!

Clonezilla is popular for system deployment. However, there are some limitations. E.g. the destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one, the image can not be explored, etc. So any workarounds for them? Besides, are there any tips available to save system administrator's time? In this talk we will describe and demonstrate the workarounds about breaking the limitations and the tips to save time in system administration.
