Configuring Deployment

You can configure WDS to use a multicast transmission to deploy a single install image to multiple computers. As Figure 11-3 shows, you can configure an auto-cast, which begins the transmission immediately, or configure a scheduled-cast in which you specify settings such as the number of clients that must connect prior to beginning the transmission, a time and date for the transmission to begin, or both. You can configure a multicast deployment to throttle the bandwidth it uses by selecting a network profile on the Network Settings tab of the WDS server's properties. The available profiles are 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, and Custom. You can also throttle bandwidth by modifying the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services \WDSServer\Providers\WDSMC\Profiles\Custom\TPMaxBandwidth registry key and setting the value to the percent of available bandwidth that the server will use.
