||Using DFS for Software Installation|
|Subject:||The Next Level|
We have been using this trick for perhaps a year, but for a different reason. We have a dozen offices connected over a Wide Area Network, with servers in each office. Using DFS and replication (which was mentioned but dismissed in the article), all of our machines see the same software installation directories, but are actually installing the software from a local repository. The same installations over the WAN might take weeks, if they didn't time out first.
