Since this is general chat and there is a lack of thanks, then a big set of thank you to the devs and helpers on here, in particular Tom Elliot, CML and Wayne Workman.
I have just finished multicasting 2 rooms of 25 PCs each simultaneously with another 50 ongoing now and another 100 to do this afternoon and a final 100 on Monday (these are harder as they have supplementary software to install afterwards). No issues and no stress (3GbMin multicast speed for those who are interested switches are cascaded netgear GS748TS, I can unicast at 9GbMin). Culmination of a months worth of on-off upgrading!
All automated from PXE first boot with fog sending the WOL too. Image goes straight to CTRL-ALT-DEL after image, OOBE, driver install, rename, join domain. No keypresses whatsoever.
FOG trunk 5370 (not the latest I know)
Centos 6.7 guest on a clustered 2k12R2 host. Guest has 2gb Ram, 2 cores assigned (htop shows the cores are not stressed)
Image is a windows 8.1 sysprepped with snappydriver driver script on OOBE - 35gb real size.
Golden image created as a VM
Network core cisco 3750 cascaded into netgear 748TS into 724TS. Jumbo frames enabled, QOS disabled temporarily to allow full multicast (to hell with normal traffic!).
(edit - storage for images is from a synology RS815+ running in pure iscsi block mode, vm host has a VHDX saved on it. Drives are standard sata 7200 3Tb drives in Raid6 so not the fastest but good enough to use Gb lan. Connection is multilink but for redundancy not speed - not that a single image pull would use MPIO anyway)
25minutes from switch on to usable CTRL-ALT-DEL
