KACE repository killing LAN?
I know this may be a hard question to answer given that none of you really know our whole setup, but thought I'd throw this out there anyways.
We have approximately 20 locations where we have Dell Optiplex 390 desktops installed to act as repositories. They have ESXi 5.0 installed on them, and a VM of Windows Server 2008 R2 installed to act as the repository. Repliaction works fine, as does pushing things out to users.
The problem comes in where 3 of our locations has been having LAN issues where the Cisco 3750 switches' CPU is maxed ouat at 99% which is limiting the bandwidth it seems. If I transfer files to that location, it should be at gigabit, but typically maxes out at 2MB/sec due to the high CPU usage on the switch. Cisco did a wireshark test on the network and unplugged the repository box from the switch, and immedidately the CPU usage went down to 43%. So our network guys are blaming the repositories....yet the other 17 locations with the same setup are fine.
I would assume that this is a configuration on the switch, or some sort of hardware issue or wiring perhaps...but I'm sure our network guys blame the repository and won't let me turn it back on - which won't let me do any patching or pushing out to that location since it would kill the LAN.
