We are install VSE 8.8 P2 as part of the build for our Windows 7 workstations. Using SCCM and build as part of a Task Sequence. Other apps are installing in the expected time frame.
All is well until the machine starts the update of the DAT. This takes around 30 minutes ! I understand it's 120mb but that's still a long time. Have tried different repositories but that doesn't make a difference. Normally on the network this would take around 2-3 minutes.
The build is actually in W7 at the time of update and past PE build, It has spoken to ePO and pulled down the policy.
