KACE Product Support Question

Creating Images (non-scripted)

03/09/2015 1105 views
Good afternoon.
At my new job, I have inherited the kace1100 and 2100. We do some basic system image deployments, usually doing 1-5 at a time so nothing major.  I have a simple questions.  The pc I am imagining has a 1GB NIC and t he server has 1GB nic and the switch and connection to and from the KAce is 1GB.. so suffice it to say we have at leat 1GB across the boards. 

However when i go to deploy an image its only pushing out about 95-9mbs, versus 1 the 1GB it could be.  Is there any reason why this would happen.  Is there a setting on the server that I need to open up and enable it.I have a 12GB file I am trying to push down and it takes close to an hour... With 1GB it should be a lot quicker.

Could it be the drivers I am using or what? Any ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated.
thank you

I have seen renegotiation occurring with older wires.   One thing you can try is to hard set the k2 nic to 1000 mbps full instead of leaving it on auto.  Are you deploying as a wim or kimage also.

  • I am doing a WIM image and i have the k2 nic to 1000 mbps instead of auto. i also got my network guy to verify and he has hard coated 1000mbps on the port side as well. Everything is set to 1000mbps, however when we look at the traffic on the port, the server and pc are only pushing roughly 100mb. do i need to tweak something maybe withing the drivers, or how do i get 1000mbps to work..

So many variables!! This is what keeps networking professionals in work! :-)

I recall in the past some combinations of NIC & switch seeming to spend their entire time renegotiating their connection parameters. Once they had been brought into line "manually", everything in the garden was rosy. Duplex settings were always a source of such joy.

  • everything is setup with Full Duplex 1000mbps. not my nect thought is a driver issue, how can i tell if the driver i am using is 10/100 versus 10/100/1000 (it says 1000 on it as well), do i need to tweak the drivers tcp setting at all to allow more traffic allowed
    just a thought
