Ghost imaging modes?
We would like to move into using Ghost instead of Rdeploy because of the ability for file preservation but have noticed that it's slower than Rdeploy.
A little background...
We have 6.9 SP1 Build 365 obviously. We don't use PXE. We have Cisco content engines where the image is stored locally so the WinPE boot disk actually maps that location to pull the image down. We have shrunk it down so this image is a little over 2 GB.
Rdeploy takes about 8 minutes. Ghost (for the same image that we pulled) takes about 13 minutes.
Here is the command line we're using:
To pull the image:
f:\ghost\ghost32.exe -clone,mode=pdump,src=1:1,dst=f:\images\windows\BAS 5_pre.gho -sure -z9
Then to push the image to a machine:
f:\ghost\ghost32.exe -clone,mode=pload,src=f:\images\windows\BAS5_pre_te st.gho:1,dst=1:1,szeL -sure
Anyone have any suggestions? Is there a switch we're missing? Are we not choosing the correct modes?
What is the difference between pload and load?
