Prestage - What is"Number of Computers to limit to" ?



We are using prestage for new computers.
I'm unsure what the Computer Names > Number of Computers section does.

It says "Number of computers to limit the Imaging PreStage to". We don't want to limit it at all, but if I enter 0, Prestage doesn't appear to work (edit - I assumed this might be equivalent to "infinity", otherwise you could just disable the PreStage). At the moment I have entered "9999999" (edit - which is decrementing accordingly after imaging).

Am I using this correctly?! -edit- This is working for us with the high number as we don't wish to limit it.. I guess the number is there for users who wish to out restrictions in somehow. Has anyone actually used it?

You can set that to any number you want. Have you changed the Scope to serial no. of device to image?


@myronjoffe , OK thanks, I wasn't sure if there was something more to this section that I was missing.

Scope is set to all our subnets. We want the configuration picked up by all machines where ever they are. I have another prestage question, but will create another discussion to keep it clean.
