Extremely slow RIS Builds
Posted on 2003-03-03
We use RIS to deploy machines in our department and normally they finish building in an hour. We recently purchased a few Dell 2350s which take an extremely long time to build with RIS (I left it running overnight for 12+ hours and it still wasn't finished!). RIS Event log shows no errors, files can be copied via the SMB share at full speed, there are no network congestions, and other machines build perfectly fine. Windows 2000 is at the latest service pack and I have swapped in various network cards to no avail. Dell 2300, 4400, and 4500s build without a problem. Why would RIS build machines so slowly on Dell 2350s?
