So we have been fighting weirdness with our scripted installs. We have about 15 tasks that range from installers (About 6) to regedits to a bios update. When we try and run about 5-6 scripted installs at a time started in stagered steps (Maybe 2-3minutes apart) the install usually completes however is missing one of the 6 installs. Or a regedit..or something.

If we do 1-2 scripted installs at a time it works usually fine. Has anyone tried to push out a bunch of data using a RSA/ We are using a ESXi Dell Optiplex 780 with quad proc and 4GB RAM as our RSA.

We never see the util go up over 300mbps. We have the kace server plugged into a 48port cisco switch that cables going right to the PCs we are deploying so don't think it is a network problem..

You're probably running into a latency issue that is causing sporadic failure of some of the tasks. The I/O requirements of running 6 installs at once may be too much for the RSA virtual machine. I don't know the specifics of the timeouts and what-not, so you'll have to wait for a response from a DellKACE rep - or submit a support ticket to get a faster response.
