I help support an environment that includes multiple LANs and WANs, with LANDesk at one central point. When we push large packages through the WAN, we have to be extremely careful because we don't want to saturate any of the WAN sites.
Here's what I want to do, I hope someone can help me out. The Delivery Methods I use have good settings in it, but I'm not sure if I can make them any better.
I predeploy larger packages using Multicast. It trickles the package down slowly, 2 clients at a time. It works great. But, once the package gets copied successfully to a subnet, I would like for the other clients in that same subnet copy at a faster rate.
This is what I need help. How do you adjust the Multicast settings to trickle it slowly to a unique subnet, but increase the rate of the other clients in that same subnet using the Multicast rep?
Thanks for any advice.
