WDS + MultiCast RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using WDS will I be able to multicast my WIM images to my client PC's?

    If not, do you know of any third party applications that will provide this functionality?

  • WDS does not use multicast technology. You'll have to wait for Symnatec's Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 due in November.

    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite:
    Symantec is committed to ensuring compatibility in imaging Vista machines with our
    Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 release. This will include full Microsoft Vista support and
    enhancements, such as imaging and deployment, software distribution, PC “personality”
    migrations, and secure retirement of end-point devices. This version supports the 64-bit
    version of Windows Vista.
    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite enables deployment and management of Vista beta
    software in the short-term, and it is the Microsoft-recommended Vista image deployment
    and management solution following the official Vista release.
    The targeted Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 Beta availability date is October 3, 2006. Other
    key milestone dates include: Release to Manufacturing (RTM) date: November 16, 2006
    and First Customer Shipments (FCS) date: November 30, 2006
