A symbol server would be the way to go with this... the most
recent release of windbg has support for a agestore command
that automatically prunes unused symbols.
So as part of the nightly build, do an an agestore on the
build directory, which will put all of the symbols and all
of the images into the symbol server. Make the symbol
server available via HTTP or as a file share.
Actually, we should probably run the source indexing on the
symbols as well, which will allow recent versions of windbg
to pull the correct version of the source out of svn
automatically during debugging (I doubt if even .net 2005 has
this feature though.)
Anyway, check out agestore and SSIndex.cmd in the latest
