Can the Symantec Ghost software be run on a Domain Controller? Are there considerations?
A Domain Controller running Ghost software may experience considerable latency of communication with other computers. It looks like a 'denial of service' attack. Users on the network could experience delays and seeming interruptions of services that require the Domain Controller.
Ghost is designed to use as much bandwidth as possible. Ghost will flood the NIC and the network during tasks.
The Ghost software should not be installed on a domain controller for the reasons listed above. Further, Symantec support for issues that occur when Ghost is installed on a domain controller is limited to those issues that can be reproduced when Ghost is not installed on a domain controller.
Ghostcast does not have to be run on a server and can be run on a workstation such as an Windows 7 machine. The Ghost Solution Suite Console runs on non-domain controllers servers, starting with Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows 10 Enterprise edition.
