One thing I've noticed as we're gradually using more and more of the functionality of ZEN7, is that for whatever reason images take a very long time to create from a workstation, in the neighborhood of 215 minutes (3 hours 35 minutes) for a 4GB installation (compression set to Speed, the image file ends up being 2.5GB). Conversely, it takes only 18 minutes to bring the image down using multicast. When we created these same images in Ghost, it took around 18 minutes to create and maybe 10 minutes to come down, in the same network environment. Is there some setting in ZEN that I'm overlooking? It just seems like an inordinately long period of time that it takes to create the image. Bringing it down I'm not worried about so much, because we're not currently set up to use Ghost in multicast so we gain a lot when we do multiple machines (two PCs being imaged in Ghost can take upwards of 40 minutes, add another PC and we're looking at an hour and a half!). But I'm just wondering why the image creation takes so long.
Thanks in advance.
