We have run into an issue which we didn't come accross in the previous years. We have multiple Images on a SAN that we need to deploy to computer labs. Each lab has 25-20 computers. Nearly all have a gigabit link back to the switches. The image is NOT just the OS. It is a full blown image. The OS, all of the software needed and configured to our needs. This is how we've done it in the past as well.
Typically, OSD would take about 2 hours, which was fine. All of a sudden, it's now taking near 7 hours (after upgrading to SP3)! Any thoughts?
I know our guys are NOT using multi-cast but rather a direct download. The entire image after captured with LANDesk is 87GB. Any thought on what we can do to improve this time or make this process more efficient?
