[Craig Seeman] "It's going to be a nightmare for bigger facilities too. Of course with a release like this I'd recommend doing one workstation which might be heavily used but on less demanding tests, to see how buggy the software is. Then they can stagger installs to their other seats."

I think we're finally going to move forward with an idea I've toyed with in the past. Install the new OS, all our software to a single brand new 1TB Drive. Then clone that to 6 other drives for all our multiple workstations. On each clone, simply throw away the serial number information and re-enter the correct serial number for each workstation. Pop the cloned hard drive inside the Mac Pro, re-set the Startup disk and away we go.

I've talked to a few engineers and they say this concept does work and has been used by some other facilities in the past. Seems simple enough.
