Systems Deployment Question
Is there a limit to the number of clients that can be imaged at one time and why is the process so slow?
I am deploying windows xp images to 1000+ clients. I don't seem to be able to connect and image more than 5 systems at a time. Is there a limit to the number of clients that can be deployed at a time, and if so can the limit be changed?
Another question is why is the imaging process so slow? We are on a fully Gig-E network. Most clients are at remote sites, with a max of 5 hops to the kbox. A single client takes about 20-30 minutes to deploy an image to, but if I start more than two clients imaging the process jumps to multiple hours! I also do not see the kbox even nearly approaching 100% utilization of the network connection, instead a maximum of about 8% and an average closer to 4%. What am I missing or doing wrong?
