Replicating Remote Deployment Shares RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have MDT 2012 with the latest update setup for Litetouch deployment.  Windows 10 OS with 10 applications to follow.  Everything is setup for no user interaction (images, names computer, joins domain, etc..) we have about 30 remote sites that also use this exact process (linked deployment share)..however, the remote sites all have different customsettings.ini files (different naming convention for computers, time zone, AD OU bucket, admin password, etc).  From time to time, we have to update the OS with a newer rev or service pack.  We do apply windows updates after the image process but it slows down the entire process as more and more updates are released.  With that being said, is there a more effective way to replicate out the new files and ISO to the 30 remote facilities?  replicating gigs of data across the WAN sucks up bandwidth and takes time.  all 30 sites takes weeks because the replication has to be done off hours and usually one at a time because the admin user account locks up the MDT console during this process.  Any suggestions?  Note: we do have to robocopy the files to some of the over seas sites that have small circuits.
