Copy from Server to Server vs Machine to Server

Recommended Posts

Roshith

Hi,

I'm creating a script that copy files from a network drive to C$ share of around 1000 machines for deployment purpose. So which way of copying the files will be faster.

1) Copying directly from the network drive to the share of remote machines

OR

2) First Copy the files from the network to the local machine(where script runs). Then copy files from the local drive to the Shares of remote machine

Assuming the files are ~500 MB

It will be faster if you have the files locally where the script runs and copy directly to the destination(s). If the script machine is pulling the files from a remote location, they cross the network twice: 1-Pull from share; 2-Push to destination.
