We have a number of serverless remote sites with low bandwidth on the WAN that will required us to implement an RSA to support our K2000 infrstructure and we are looking at different possibilities.  Would it be possible to run an RSA off a VM capable NAS to act as the footprint for K2000 at those sites?  Shared space on the NAS would also be made available for K1000.

If no one has implemented something like that a couple of workarounds are:

If you can emulate a windows share on your NAS devices and depending on your number of machines  and if you are using wim images.



also you can use an usb device on remote sites

We will be using our old VM server as an RSA running ESXi.  I will update later with how that went.  We should be getting to that in the next few weeks.  I don't if that addresses what you are trying to accomplish but, let me know.  Our RSA is currently a desktop with a Gig switch which meets our need.  We currently run about 12 machines at a time from that and can run 32 at a time from our K2000.

  • Indeed, one of the options is to run off a small ESXi server (let me know how that went for you).

    We were looking at the possibility of running RSA in a VM off the OS on a NAS box at the remote site. The NAS could be used for shared network space for K1000 software packages, user shared drives, and hopefully run the VM for RSA and its required space.

    What is limiting you to 12 machines concurrently on your RSA? Is it solely a question of bandwidth?
