    Multicast from storage node not working

    Hi

    We have had our fog server working really well for a year, i upgraded to 0,30 when it came out.

    We have just started deploying windows 7, our fog server is nearly full of our xp images, which we want to keep for a while incase we need to roll back for any reason, so we are storing the 7 images on a storage node.

    The fog server will multicast fine, however when i try to multicast an image that is on the storage node i get this error in the multicast.log on the fog server and clients sit on please wait.

    Is the right UPN Suffix correct for the storage node and image file ??

    IE - \\stroage-node\images\win7

    Rather than set to local destinations ?

    Yes upn suffix is as above.

    The storage node can deploy an image normally, but try multicasting the same image you get the above error.

    Is the node the "Master" for your storage group? According to the forums, multicasting always takes place from the master node

    Someone on the FOG forums reported that multicasting was broken with 0.30: Link

    Rather than reverting to 0.29, you should be able to substitute the init.gz from 0.29 into your /tftpboot/fog/images folder. I use a similar setup after experiencing a number of problems with 0.30, and the speed and other issues I was seeing went away. I don't use multicasting though so can't say for sure if it will fix the problem you're seeing.
