• Hi,

    I setup fog server for multicast support, everything look ok until i try to deploy multicast image to several PCs,

    After pxe boot and i enter multicast session name immediately i get this error

    • unable to determinate operating system type

    if this image work if i restore it on registered PC, but i want to deploy it to several PCs at one time without registration.

    Any ideas ?

  • Hi again,

    issue solved, my if is em1 not eth0 🙂

  • Hi,

    My fog server is already modified, also first part (single host without registration) work perfect, my problem is when is start multicast (after boot menu and fog php’s are update +new noreg.gz) session, pxe boot ok, after i select boot menu for multicast just before installation start i get this message, for some reason fog server can’t find what type of OS i try to install, same image work perfect with single host install,

    LABEL Multicast
    kernel fog/kernel/bzImage
    append initrd=fog/images/noreg.gz root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=127000 ip=dhcp dns= type=down mc=yes storageip= storage= ftp= web= shutdown= loglevel=4 mSession= consoleblank=0

    also my image is for windows 7 64bi, single disk single partition, for single session install work but on same hardware with multicast session i get error

    • unable to determinate operating system type

    little before installation start (noreg.gz is already loaded and etc.)

    in virtual host with mac 0:0:0… i can see host os selected Windows 7 (5) but look like install can find it … i try to put osid=5 after append but not work (i know is not necessary in pxeboot.cfg default but just for test)

    You’ll have to modify fog if you want to multicast without registering. FOG multicast currently requires each client to be registered and in a group before you can multicast. There are threads on the FOG forums about modifying the code to allow unregistered multicast, but it’s not really something for Linux beginners, so be prepared.
