The Astaro Smart Installer is a special USB drive that contains a unique chip which allows emulation of a USB CD-ROM. The software packages that are made available by Astaro will automatically sense that the ASI is connected, and burn the packaged image onto the drive with a single click to a special partition created on the fly.
It is also possible to use the ASI as a regular USB drive to transport backup files, license keys, and other information. Note: Each time you write a new image to the drive, all existing information on all parts of the ASI (including files placed on the removable drive partition) will be deleted.
Identifying The ASI Model
There are two versions of the Astaro Smart Installer. While identical in use and features, they require different software to load with images. For an overview, visuals, and download links, visit http://www.astaro.com/products/astaro-smart-installer/download
This operation will completely erase your existing configuration (Rules, Logs, Policies, etc...) If you wish to restore your previous configuration, please ensure you have a suitable backup file prepared to restore once the process is finished!
