Create task... disappears before job starts.



  • I create a new multicast task. Before the job starts the active task clears. Here is a copy of the multicast log.

    [07-25-12 9:23:22 am] * [07-25-12 9:23:22 am] I am the group manager.
    [07-25-12 9:23:32 am] * [07-25-12 9:23:32 am] Checking if I am the group manager.
    [07-25-12 9:23:32 am] * [07-25-12 9:23:32 am] I am the group manager.

    [07-25-12 9:23:32 am] CMD:
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] | [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] Task (30) CHS-40-Room failed to start!
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] | * Don’t panic, check all your settings!
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] | even if the interface is incorrect the task won’t start.
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] | If all else fails run the following command and see what it says:
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] |
    [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] | [07-25-12 9:23:37 am] Task (30) CHS-40-Room has been cleaned.

  • Solved:
    OK, as I said in the last post this is a secondary node with a master storage node for images. I had updated the image and uploaded it directly to the secondary storage node, but the main storage node at the central office still had the previous version of the image. Jus to test I uploaded the image file from the secondary node back up to the main node and tried to multicast again. It worked at it should! Note to self: Always upload to main storage node fresh images and let them replicate down to the secondary nodes at the schools.



  • Update: I am able to pull an image via multicast from the Main Fog Server at the central office. But the image that is local here to the school on the storage node will not pull via multicast, but will pull unicast. Going to recheck settings on this local server. It is set up to be a tftp booting storage node. As it is working fine tftp booting, it is just not sending out the multicast traffic as it should.



  • Any ideas or log files that I can look at? I have still got about 300 computers to image and unicast is just too time consuming for this project.



  • No. Would not even work to single multicast client. And yes it did work. Just last week I got it setup and working great. Imaged about 30 computers in a little over 5 min with Win 7. That was Last Thursday. Went back today planning to do the same on 3 more labs and this is what I ran into. It adds to tasks and then clears within 10-15 seconds.

    I can still unicast but that takes about 30-40 min per every 15 machines. So not good.

    does multicast work at all, even to multicast to a single client? Has it ever worked?
