Has anyone successfully provisioned an LS/HS20 with local hard drives? We are seeing exceptionally slow file transfers and are bouncing between network driver issues or disk driver issues.
Installs to a boot-from-san server are blazing fast, which should eliminate network, but when we copy a large file to the drive (very slow to copy) and then move it around the hard disk, it's very fast. This should indicate that the hd drivers are ok, but the network is bad.
I would love to know how others got Windows on an LS/HS20 with drives.
I have asked the same question on an internal forum
