Multicast deploy run slow...
I try to deploy 4 machines in multicast mode, but with a 100Mbit switch partimage runs only at 100Mbyte/min.
When i run in unicast mode, single machine, runs at 1200Mbyte/min

100Mb switch maybe :)
Personally I only every use Unicast, it’s faster, it’s more reliable, and it doesn’t bring my DHCP Server down.
Is there a particular reason you want to multicast these?
If it were my environment, I wouldn’t be multicasting on this equipment.
It definitely sounds like an issue with the switch.
Is there a way you could try a cross over cable and temporary dhcp server on your fog server? Do things work better this way?
You can try SVN version, but I think it’s a problem with the switch…
no, i don’t have other switchs
With 1.2 and svn I had these problems due to Cisco configuration, not a problem with FoG.
You can’t compare Unicast and Multicast, they don’t use the same protocole.
Do you have another model of 100Mb switch ?
latest stable, 1.2.0
Wich version do you use ?
i just tryed with only one pc in multicast mode: runs at 130Mbyte/min
Same pc in unicast runs at 1,2Gbyte/min so i think that multicast module is buggly
You can try to multicast 3 machines, to find the computer wich run slowly on multicast.
no, are 3 switch 24 port unmanaged dlink 100Mbit model DES-1024D.
i see also that if there is a multicast task in progress, the dhcp server don’t serve the clients
Are they connected to a managed switch ?
