What is ImageInvoker?

ENGL ImageInvoker 2.0 is a secure user-friendly imaging front-end for Symantec Ghost Solution Suite (GSS). ImageInvoker can be secured using domain, local server or password authentication. Once authenticated, the ImageInvoker client will display GSS jobs as menu options. When a job is selected the computer can be renamed and the job scheduled and processed.

Timeout countdown

ImageInvoker can be configured with a timeout that causes the client to display a countdown. If the timeout elapses without user input, ImageInvoker will exit and continue any automation tasks.



Secure authentication

ImageInvoker can secure access to deployment menus using a password or server/domain authentication.



Deployment menu

ImageInvoker can render GSS jobs and folders as either a flat or hierarchical menu. Jobs and folders will appear in the menu if they have been tagged and the authenticated user has the sufficient permissions.



Computer rename

Once a job has been selected in the menu, the computer name will be displayed. If the machine is unknown to GSS, a computer name will be generated which can be modified.



Job scheduling

Once the computer name has been confirmed, the selected job will be scheduled. The ImageInvoker client will exit and hand control over to the GSS automation agent.
