KACE K2000 imaging speeds
I have a KACE 2100 Connected to my network and I am working with large scale image deployments. I am currently working on a 20GB image that if I work with one machine it takes about 20 minutes When I put more machines on the time goes up to around 8 hours to 1 day to image my hardware. I did the integrity test and the applicance is fine but I am not able to find anything on the best recommended settings for the network to user. I have updated the ports and all of that is done but other then that I am at a loss.

Are you capturing your image as a kimage or a wim. The slowdown comes from the number of machines hitting the samba share on the 2000 not the nic usually. I switched to using wim files, they deploy in half the time and you can also store them on windows shares throughout your network which even helps more. I have had 120 machines imaging from one box and it only doubled the time compared to one machine imaging.
