I asked this question over in the Servers section, but I was advised to ask it here also.
I also asked the question over at [H], where I was advised that such a thing is possible with IPMI. If anyone else has experience of doing this and is willing to offer advice, it will be appreciated.I'm thinking of renting a server in a remote datacentre for a project or two. However, I would like to be able to create a "golden image" Linux installation at my desktop using VirtualBox or VMware, convert the disk image to raw and then image the remote server's hard disk with it.
Is this possible?
