You'll always have changes to make after an image restore, whether from a database system or as a postscript (the usual and best option).
One hint - I've found storing images and distributing (using the methods I use) are better from a windows server, don't ask.
But using this I can restore a group of 50 servers, or desktops/laptops, (more wouldn't be an issue) with a 2.5G image in 4 minutes 36 seconds on a 100Mb LAN (so if you have a rack and a PVC for it that's how quick it goes from fresh), then the postscripts take about 30 seconds to 2 minutes depending on hardware including the reboot.
