    Anyone have a good ballpark figure for hardware specs on remote repositories? We have 15 geographic locations, each with a remote repository, so pretty much each network subnet has a local FTP storage, all systems

    When trying to image at our corporate office – I had 16 terminals I needed to reimage – the local repository could only image 2-3 at a time, the rest would connect and start throwing ftp errors.

    Our entire building is on GBit Cat-6, and the repository is a Dell GX745 (don’t remember exact specs, less than a year old though), with GBit lan. This was also after-hours, so I was the only traffic on the subnet.

    Any ideas or tweaks I can perform to make my repositories more stable?

    Are you using Windows XP as the “server” OS for WDM?
    You should use a real server OS as XP is limited to 10 simultaneous
    connections. And the imaging process needs 3 connections each.

    The Master server is a quad-proc 2003 Dell server, but my remote repositories are XP systems – so that could be causing the ftp errors. I guess I can reduce the number of simultaneous client images. thanks!
