we use a hyper-v server which has a connection with a storage
server through ISCSI,
we manage the hyper-v server with MS VMM.
when creating a machine from a template it copy's it to itself using BITS
cause of that the creating taking 45min for deployment
is there any way we can setup hyper-v or Iscsi that it knows that the destination path and template are on the same server and does not have to go over the network port ?
server1: windows 2008 R2 = DC + microsoft VMM
server2: windows 2008 R2= hyper-v server with iscsi iniator connection to server3(appears as local drive in drive management)
server3: microsoft storage server 2008
template is about 16gb ( windows 2008 machine for students)
the current servers we have dont have dedicated iscsi ports yet
so for testing purposes its on the same network
windows server 2008
