Dell Optiplex 760 SFF bios A03 - Ghost Slow Down
We have like many, procured our summer allocation of computers (Dell Optiplex 760 Small Form), they turned up yesterday, we un-boxed them and set them up in our imaging lab.
We had 20 on a session and that's when hell was realised!
Image just one (forced multicasting for the test) and we get a solid 690MB/Min on ghost 8.2
Image two or more and we get 2-6MB/Min, now we tried this on both multicast & unicast!
We tried a few different specs of computers two hpdc5100 on the same cables produced 600+MB/Min, Even the
Steps taken so far.
Downloaded the latest packet drivers from Intel for the nic in the machine, this yielded no difference at all.
Tried them on their own switch with fresh cables, no wimpy switch either, Cisco 2960G, still no joy.
Our last solution is not ideal, but we will put the hard drives in to other computers and image.
Dare i ask if anyone else has seen such problems before?
It feels to me like a faulty network card driver/firmware :(
