Installing Windows remotely..

Okay so i'm at work today and I console into a server that's installing windows, no xref (for those who have worked here in the past) and no windows CD in the drive.

Chassis = Dell 2950 "Loaded" (Raid 10 setup)

He had no other servers, just the one 2950 with us.

I know this is easily done in Linux, but how is this done for Windows?

Any insight?

Its easy if you have a configured DRAC card installed...

I'm installing Win2k3 on 5 servers right now.... They are in our DC in Plano, but I'm home in Lake Dallas.

Otherwise you still need some sort of on site intervention. Even using PXE booting requires you to select the install image you want installed..

This was done without PXE, IPMI, DRAC or any remote console for that matter.
