Win2k3, Ghost v7.5 and slow speed for images
Posted on 2004-08-27
I recently migrated a client from NT4 to Win2k3. Today, I noticed that the currently-installed version of Symantec Ghost Corp Ed v7.5 had an incredibly slow transfer rate. If my memory serves me correctly, Ghost had worked fine with Win2k3. I can’t remember if eTrust antivirus was on the server at the time. It is now, though.
One time, I nailed up the speed and duplex on the HP Procurve switch and server NICs instead of doing that auto negotiate thingie. That fix worked.
However, the problem has reared up its ugly little head.
Taking 5 hours to image a machine is slower than loading one from scratch.
Has anyone got any ideas/test methods/tools they wish to share? I am scratching my head.
