    Best Practice for Large Application Installs

    Dan Chan

      Hello All,



      I just wanted to see if I can get a couple other viewpoints for what might be a best practice for large applications.




      For applications that have a large installation footprint such as Oracle.  Its it recommended to copy all of its contents to the depot or just refer to it and install it over the network?


      Would there be time savings one way or the other?


      I can see the advantages of keeping it in the Depot being that it is your single source install file and is not likely to be modified, where as having it on a network share could open up some problems if someone modified that info.


      I'm just trying to get some viewpoints.
