Multiple errors installing packages on multiple machines at same time

hi all...

seems like im having errors deploying packages on multiple machines at the same time...

error while : (tested on 10 and more computers)
installing package in policy at reboot
installing package in casper remote

works fine : (tested on 10 and more computers)
installing package in policy at check-in

The errors im getting is either : Error: An error occurred attempting to mount the package
OR
could not mount distribution point bla bla bla...

Looks like the server can't handle mounting the DP too many times at same time...

is this possible ?

I've certainly seen this with Mac minis as DPs. They don't like more than 4 or 5 connection requests at the same time. Staggered connections with higher numbers are ok though. What are you using as a DP?

hi

we have a brand new Mac Pro with SAN volume mounted on it that uses fiber and thunderbolt

Speed is really fast but looks like multiple mount DP connection can't handle pretty well...
