System Center 2012 Configuration Manager - Very slow MDT task sequence export

    Question

  • Hello. We are using SCCM 2012 with MDT 2012 to deploy OS (Win 7).  Everything is working ok. The problem is that when I try to export the task sequence it takes very long time (around 1 hour). Is this normal behavior? I am exporting only the task sequence itself without dependencies. Thank you

  • Watch smsprov.log during the export. It takes a while when the provider is querying the SMS_Driver class for each driver.
