DS 7.1 - Slow image deployment

Created: 19 Mar 2013 | 2 comments

Hi all,

I'm running DS 7.1.I've successfully, create a Win7 image for deployment using Ghost.

Everything is working, except that the deployment of the image is so slow.

Weird thing is that if I restart the deployment server, and re-deploy the same image, it runs really quick. Then the next day, it goes back to being slow again.

I'm running on a gigabit link on both server and target workstation.

I'm hoping someone can shine some light on this?

Many thanks.

do you have site servers?  Do you know where the image is being pulled from (SMP vs Site Server(s))?  Is there a difference in the automation environment?  (32 vs 64 bit)  Network busy?  Server busy doing something else?

There are a number of ways an image can be slow.  Also, make sure you are NOT using multicast, at least as a baseline.

Are you using HTTP imaging? I know I tried that in the past and it was quite a bit slower.
