What is Assimilator?

Assimilator is designed for situations where you wish to make a large number of Macintoshes look virtually identical. Typically this is in an educational laboratory situation - this document is aimed at laboratory administrators - but Assimilator has other uses, such as setting up newly purchased Macs, testing software or setting up demo machines.

How it Works

When Assimilator runs on a laboratory Macintosh it will mount an AppleShare file server and then make the hard disk look virtually identical to a pre-specified source folder on the server.  It does this by comparing each file in the source folder to the corresponding file on the destination hard disk.  If the file on the destination is missing, or has been changed, then it is thrown away  (into the Trash) and a new copy of the file is copied down from the source. Any extraneous items on the destination are also thrown away. Finally aliases, icon positions, folder views, Finder flags and so forth are all set to match those in the source folder. This entire process is known as assimilation.

WARNING: Assimilator is designed to scramble hard disks!  Read the included documentation before using it.
