Multicast not deploying


  • Developer

    I searched and I found loads of information but none of the descriptions matched the issue I am facing.

    I have a group created, 30 machines registered to the group, Each mac Address is only in the list once.

    I click the deploy Multicast button, it says “
    [CENTER][SIZE=16px][FONT=Ubuntu][COLOR=#333333]All 30 machines were queued without error.”[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][/CENTER]
    but then it never actually does anything. I check in the Task management for “Active Multicasts” and I see the task there stating it is at 0%. All machines reboot and load the PXE menu fine, but then 3 seconds later the task is not there and none of my imaging is started, help would be greatly appreciated, where do I need to begin searching for errors?

    Each individual machine has a file created for it in the pxelinux.cfg folder.

    How do I verify that Multicast is still enabled and I didn’t turn it off someplace?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    ALRIGHT I GOT IT!!!

    I adjusted the MYSQL information in both of the Config files, and found the sucker that wasn’t reporting and rebooted it now I have transfer!!! thanks for letting me bounce ideas and keep track of my efforts :)

    I have ran a couple of tests, I started with the log file and at first it was a problem with my nic card being eth1 instead of eth0.

    I adjusted the settings and changed the network card to eth0 and rebooted, now it reports properly. But now my units only sit at the blue “Please Wait” screen. I can see the task is active and it is a multicast, I can even see that one of them supposedly is deploying and the rest are in the que. When I physically check the machine it is still sitting at the blue “Please wait” screen. I left them over night and this morning they are still at the blue screen.

    so I began here : [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/wiki-troubleshooting-multicast.22/[/url]

    I ran the tests and when I do the commands in the debug mode they complete with out a problem. I will post my log in just a moment when I get back on the server. Its not the WHOLE file but it is a section of the past hour.

    I noticed in the log it didn’t show my commands from Debug but they did complete successfully.

    But when I look in the other log it appears there is a machine that is not reporting in, I’ve tried rebooting them all multiple times :(

    You should check the FOGMulticastManager log in /opt/fog/log/multicast.log. The problem is the FOGMulticstManager daemon, this daemon kill your multicast tasks and the tasks of the clients.
