We have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS running on one of our servers. Is it possible to create a bootable and installable iso with its exact configuration? I would then use the created iso to install Ubuntu server on another machine so that I do not have to make any modifications.

Is there any software like remastersys for Ubuntu server, or will remastersys work for LVM partitions?

it justs backs up files in an iso. thats not what i want. i want an installable iso image , something created on the similar lines by remastersys for ubuntu desktop. –  Ubuntuser Jul 11 '12 at 11:09
The remastersys for debian can do this. Ubuntu requires the GUI. –  Rinzwind Jul 11 '12 at 11:19
Your best method is probably to do this manually with a chrooted env and the original ISO where you include all your changes to the chrooted env. And yes...it's time consuming. Also have a look at puppetmaster if you need to maintain those systems ;) –  Rinzwind Jul 11 '12 at 12:49
@Ubuntuser if you found a solution or if any of the comments under your post helped you in any way you can always add it as an answer to your question and mark it accepted. The management –  Bruno Pereira Jul 29 '12 at 21:09
