ghost solution suite causing network to crash
Posted on 2008-06-17
When we run use ghost to image a couple of computers it will cause the network to crash.
Setup is as follows
One- desktop computer (1g nics) booted up with BartPE, running Ghost Server 8.5
1 or more computers/laptops (1g nics) booted up with BartPE and running Ghost32 8.5- connected to Ghost server via multi cast.
Both desktop running Ghost server and computers to be imaged are connected to a Netgear gigabit switch, this switch is connected to our network so they all can get IP addresses.
Once you start the Ghost session and imaging begins our network gets a broadcast storm and user will loss connection to servers and our phone switch will drop (phone switch is VOIP to HQ)
We can run ghost on the network from another ghost server in the same way as above (only pc to be imaged is connected to network) and we do not have any problems-- other than it takes over an hour to image a computer
Any have any thoughts?
