Hello I'm looking into building a server that will be able to update and install OS images to various clients on the network both Windows and Linux. I am thinking a diskless setup would be what I need but haven't been able to confirm a server that will support both types of clients.
What I need to find out is what hardware will be needed for the build for supporting 3-4 clients on the network
Will I be able to have the same access for this to work over wifi as well as ethernet if using a VPN to remote into the network for updates?
Can I have the system have remote access to connect to the clients for system specific tweaks?
Can the system be built and ran in a Linux OS and support others such as Windows?
How many images will I be allowed? Can I have a different image specified to a particular client host?
Can this all be combined into a Linux Server setup which is running a file server/media server, mail server, asterisk server, and LAMPP stack?
Can this be done on a budget?
How effective will this be for a home network and using images remotely for quick fixes on the go?
I appreciate any assistance greatly and hope to see support on this. Thanks
