Just wondering if you guys had a list of tips to speed up admin image installs. I am having clients install from an admin image located on a server, and they are installing by clicking the HTA link over the network. I typically ask them to reboot prior to the installs, and recommend them doing it in house vs VPN from home, etc… I know the network is a huge variable but I really have no control over that.
I just did a clean install on a VM machine and it took 1 hour 23min – which isn’t terrible, but I’ve had users run all day and still not get a full install.
I have them installing every option we own in the options editor because it got to be a PITA when someone wanted to add-in a product later on.
