    Slow at bzImage and init.gz stage

    Before I used to unicast wth no issues and if there were more than 10 pcs it would just wait before other were done.

    I have to re-do fog and setup the same as I recall from last time but if I do more than one pc

    fog/knernel/bzimage takes about 5 mins

    so does fog/images/init.gz take 5 mins

    Though when it gets to the imaging part it doesnt complain about multiple images or causes network issues, anyone come across this?

    If it's just the TFTP transfer at the start which is slow this can be caused by buggy PXE implementations on network interfaces. I've seen this type of behaviour using Dell Optiplex 760 machines, the transfers are slow and bursty and multiple machines connecting to the server seems to make it worse. I would retest with a PC that has a different network interface. This problem isn't FOG specific, downloading a WinPE image through WDS has the same slow down.
