here's the setup, xp workstation sharing a folder holding my images,
clients are dell gx200, 270, 260 or 170L.
when I use the zen 4 boot disk with the samba drivers added it works
pretty good. But the disk is lacking drivers for most newer machines.
However when I use the Zen 7 Disks (tried different versions of 7) Imaging
is very slow, about 3 hours for a 3gb image. I have tried changing duplex
settings, spanning tree switch software updates, nothing seems to make any
difference. What are some differences between zen 4 and 7 that could
effect network performance like this? Thanks for anything.
