    MDT 2012 - Multicast using deploymentshare$ on a different server.

    Hi,

    Our MDT server is a hyper-V install of 2008. the host has limited space for storage.
    We have a fast storage DAS server with plenty of space. So in seeing that the deployment share could be located on an external share we moved this onto our NAS.

    This is working perfectly. But when we tick the "Multicast option" the first problem is that it asks for a local path for the deployment share... obviously we cant do this as it is located on another server.

    If we create an empty local folder and share it as "deploymentshare$" we get the following errors. Extremely helpful as part of it is in chinese!

    An error occurred while trying to execute the command.

    Code:
    An error occurred while trying to execute the command.
    Error Code: 0xC1100106
    Error Description: The Windows Deployment Services Transport Server role service has not been configured on the server.
    
    䔊楸⁴潣敤㴠ⴠ〱㔵ㄹ㜵〷
    Unable to create multicast namespace "deploymentshare$", rc = -1055915770.


    Has anyone else managed to multicast using a deploymentshare located on a different server?
    I did have a look at "advanced \ linked deployment shares" but when installing from the linked share it would access the mdt sql database....

    Thanks in advance

    The system account of the mdt server will need read security rights on the deployment share. Never tried having the ds on a nas before.

    Thanks,
    Normal deployment is working a treat.
    Its just when we try to use the multicast method it falls over.
    I will edit the above post to make it clearer

    Still no joy.. Do you have a database connected?
    I might try the "linked deployment share" and have two synced up again.

    I dont have a database. It is definitely to do with the remote deployment share as I have a local one aswell and I dont get the Multicast error on that. I havent managed to find any info on how you do it with a remote share. My Server also has limited space so its not an option unless I buy more disks.

    I'm just pulling this out of the air as I'm only running WDS, but maybe try presenting the remote storage to your MDT server over iSCSI?

    Hi, Could you please elaborate on that for me please?
    Wds - vm
    Nas storage - physical raid array

    I reimaged an ict suite today, I started them all off at the same time and it took 5-7 min for them to do the OS install section where it is actaully copying the wim from the nas so im not too worried about multicasting right now.
