[wpkg-users] Large deployments and fileshares [SEC=UNOFFICIAL]

Just had an unfortunate experience with deploying and acrobat reader update from 8 to 9.3.4
It's a simple administrative install point on a samba server with a custom MST.
All went well when people logged on until 0850 when the server suddenly died under the load of machines trying to copy 109mb of data.

Does anyone know of an effective way to mitigate this.
I ended up changing the script to robocopy the admin install point to the local machine before deploying from there as a work around.
Does WPKG have any ability to do failover if the main deployment files aren't available or should I script for this?
