We are ghosting a system that is attached to several USB-to-serial devices. These show up as a virutal COM port in Windows. These devices will retain their COM port when detached and re-attached to the same system. However, when an image is restored the COM ports change. The Windows device driver installation mechanism runs and the devices get assigned the next highest port numbers. We would prefer they stay the same.
I realize this is probably a Windows issue and not something you can fix in Ghost. Any known work-arounds?
Windows 7 Professional
GhostCast Server 11

The Norton forum here is for the consumer products. The Symantec Connect forum is for the business and enterprise products.
Ghost Solution Suite is under "Endpoint Management"
That said, I also think your looking at a windows issue.
Have you tried making an image outside of windows?
I would create a windows PE disk and run Ghost from that locally by booting that system with the disk.
I have a feeling restoring or deploying that image will behave just like the original and windows would not make changes on first boot.
Best of luck,
