What is NetSUS?

The NetBoot/SUS/LP server allows you to host an internal software update server (SUS), a NetBoot server, and a LDAP Proxy server all on the same Linux system. For a list of supported Linux distributions see Requirements.

  • Software Update Server - Unlike a standard SUS, the SUS hosted by the NetBoot/SUS/LP server allows you to control which software updates should be installed on each computer in your organization.

  • NetBoot Server - The NetBoot/SUS/LP server allows you to host a NetBoot image. You can boot computers to a NetBoot image in place of a recovery partition or external drive when imaging.

  • LDAP Proxy - Use the NetBoot/SUS/LP server as a lightweight proxy that acts as a middleware layer between LDAP clients and LDAP directory servers.

  • Web Application - The NetBoot/SUS/LP server includes a web application that can be used to easily manage your NetBoot and Software Update Servers as well as your LDAP Proxy. The dashboard page is shown above.
