How many machines can you image at a time?
01/27/2015 2027 views
We currently deploy a WIM image to our labs (Win 7 Enterprise with a little customization) and follow this with approximately 130 apps afterwards. Once the image has deployed and the 'Copy Post Install Files' task has completed, we start the next batch. We use RSAs running Linux with dual NICs.
Problem - we can only deploy to batches of 6 machines at a time. If we start anymore (a 7th machine) that extra machine stops (fails) and the original 6 slow down. How many should we be expecting to deploy at a time? We use RSAs as we have several offices in regional areas and Security does not allow direct access to the K2 (we have no problem with that) but each RSA can only handle 6 machines at a time. When you have 2000 to image that takes a loooong time (too long for my boss).
Is this deployment number OK or are we a bit slow (pun intended). What do you guys get?
