Hi, would like to know if I can push out Snow Leopard install to around 30 MacPros via ARD 3.4. I don't have any OSX server to run Netinstall. I would like all the Macs to keep their existing user folders. Thanks


Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Sorry, but no, you cannot push out a full OS version upgrade via ARD. Installing SL requires that the system boot from the installation disk. NetInstall would not help even if you had Server available since NetInstall completely replaces all the existing system, unless there's a workaround script I've not seen. You'll have to upgrade each system manually, though DeployStudio may help:
