Installation of ZDM or ZSM over WAN links is slow and very time consuming. This is especially true if the link is slow such as 56k WAN links.


When possible, the installation of ZDM or ZSM should be done on the same LAN environment. When this is not possible, it works much better to copy or Distribute the files over the WAN link and then remotely run the installation through a mapped drive.
