Slow NetBoot

  • I'm using CloneDeploy 1.3.3 running on Windows Server 2008 using the Mac Imaging Environment and I'm experiencing significant lag when imaging more than a couple of MacBook air's. I'm not sure if this is related, but when attempting to multicast I found that no devices were able to boot up to CloneDeploy at all. Any ideas why it might be running so slow? I should also note that I am Imaging Sierra to High Sierra which I was able to successfully pull off in my testing.

  • How powerful is your server? Since the MIE doesn't support multicast it's going to eat up resources fairly quick. Have you checked resource monitor while you image, specifically network and disk utilization.
