Multicast deploy does not launch snap-ins

  • Hi,
    using fog version 1.1.0 under an ubuntu 12.04.
    We have noticed that multicast deployments does not launch snap-ins assigned to the hosts.
    We guess it is a bug. Could you check that?

    Thanks a lot.

  • Hi again Tom,
    I’ve updated to 1.1.1 and the behaviour is the same. Launching a mullticast deploy the associated snap-ins are not launched.
    By the way, what is the deployment button that appears in host list for? It seems to launch a deploy of one host using multicast, but that doesn’t have much sense.

    I don’t know that that is the cause or not. I didn’t make any changes to how the groups get deployed.

    It seems like something else is being missed though. I see if I can replicate it, if I can I can maybe track down what/where the issue is, but from all my testing, all seems to work properly.

  • Tom,
    I know that if the host don’t have any snap-in associate no snap-in will be done. That’s logical and that’s the way it worked before.

    But I swear you that we lauched a group with hosts that had snap-ins associated, and the snap-ins were not queued. Right now I have created a group with only one host and one snap-in associated, I have launched a multicast deployment, and the snap-in is not on snap-in queued tasks.

    My fog version is 1.1.0. I downloaded it before you make it official. Can it be that the cause of this problem?

    Snapin deployments do happen, but only to the hosts who have snapins associated to them. I only know this because I’ve spent basically the better part of 2 days trying to fix Multicast, and waited while the host that actually has snapins associated to it to finish with those snapins.

    I hope this answers the question.

  • HI,
    any developer who can answer this please?

  • Hi,
    I have it, of course. Snap-ins are done in unicast deployment but not in a multicast one.

    Do you have the FOG Service installed in your image?
