issues copying an MDT install to another server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey peepz,

    I have setup MDT on a WDS server and all works well.

    I then installed MDT on another WDS server/different building and then copied across everything in the $MDTDeploymentShare folder from the currrent to the new.  Changed the bootstrap file to reflect some different server info.  It all works fine as it should.... BUT

    when i go to update the DeploymentShare on the current after making changes it is quick to regenerate an image, yet on the new server it takes 30-60 minutes. both servers have the same resources allocated and wondering whether there is a file i need to edit that lets it know its know its not Generating the DeploymentShare for the first time i hazard a guess each time??


    edit: I am also selecting: "Optimize the boot image updating process"

  • Hello VeggieDave,

    Try deleting the boot files in the Boot folder first (litetouch ISO and WIMs) and updating the deployment share with the "completely regenerate boot images option". Then see how long it takes to update the deployment share a second time without completely regenerating the boot images.
