Q. Does the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) OS Deployment Feature Pack support multicasting?

A. No. Unlike Automated Deployment Services (ADS), which supports multicasting and therefore can deploy 100 machines--or one machine--using the same amount of bandwidth, the SMS OS Deployment Feature Pack supports unicasting only. Therefore, if you deploy 100 machines, the image file will be sent over the network 100 times
