Multicast ended good. Next multicast session problems
First of all, FOG is very nice tool and i already have more then 1500 hosts in the listing.
But now I have a problem with the multicast session after i updated FOG to 1.5.8
The problem is when a multicast session is ended the udp-sender still exsist and there is still a record in the database from this session.
When i start next time a multicast session with other clients the session won’t start at all. I need to clear the database, kill the upd sender and need to restart the FOGMulticastManager and then i need to restart the multicast session and all clients in the group should be restarted.
mysql -u root <-p password> fog truncate table multicastSessions; truncate table multicastSessionsAssoc; exit; sudo service FOGMulticastManager stop sudo killall udp-sender sudo killall udp-sender sudo killall udp-sender sudo service FOGMulticastManager start
I’m out of any suggestions to try. Is there anything that i can try?
Thanks in advance!
@Eazis Sounds good, thanks for the feedback!
@Sebastian-Roth we have just tried some multicast sessions and it looks like that everything is working well now.
@Sebastian-Roth i will try this and i come back if this fix the solution. It could take some days.
@Eazis I suppose you are still using FOG 1.5.8!? I just remembered that we did fix some things related to stuck multicast tasks since 1.5.8 was released and you might want to upgrade to the latest
dev-branchto see if this fixes your issue.
I’m starting the multicast session in this way:
- Create a group or use an exsisting group
- Add the members to the group (most of the time 10 members are in this group)
- Add a group image to this group
- Add snapins to this group
- Basic tasks -> Multicast
@Eazis There are different ways of starting multicast Sessions. Please tell us exactly which one you are using.
