I believe you are refering to [DEAD LINK] this poll.
Yes, we did drop the vCampus DVD in favor of separate downloads. I think it has two major reasons
- A majority of the community voted for seperate downloads
- Seperate downloads tend to be better manageable, especially when dealing with multiple products.
But, if there is renewed interest or demand for the DVD it is certainly worth discussing!
As Michael pointed out, there was huge issues with manageability. Also, the Microsoft package that handled the packaging job for us was suffering a bug which caused us lots of trouble when the pieces inside the package exceeded 12! With the rate of new products releases we found ourselves in this constant mode of catch up with some good amount of delay.
Another important point was that the size of the package was too big to download for a significant portion of the community making it quite unusable.
I can understand your difficulties. Don't bother to create the ISO for me. I'll just down load the files to a single folder on the host machine and link to that folder from within each of the VMs.
Thanks for responding.
Thanks David for bringing this up and understanding our situation. We will still look for easier solutions/workarounds to the problem.
