Wait for Multicasting - Settings



  • Hi,

    currently i read the Multicasting-Artivle in the wiki.
    I know thats possible, but i can’t find the point to configure.

    There was a option for Multicasting-Tasks to:

    • define how much workstations should been imaged -> if all ready -> start multicasting automatically
    • define that FOG should listen to clients -> if all ready there is a button on FOG-Task Management to start manually

    see image: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/images/3/3d/Queue.jpg

    The limit of workstations which can imaged at the same time (limit) -> where do i config this?
    Is this the “FOG_MULTICAST_MAX_SESSIONS”Max number of sessions [Default: 64] ?

    Why there are more options in the wiki than the WebGUI?

    • What OS are you using on the FOG server?
      Ubuntu LTS 14.04.3 -> ubuntu-14.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso

    • What version of FOG are you using. I will guess 1.2.0, but did you upgrade to the trunk version (i.e. pre 1.3.0)?
      1.2.0

    yesterday evening i think about this options and now i am sure that i mixed up with Norton Ghost.
    In FOG u build the the Hosts to Groups and if all Groupmembers ready then starts the Multicasting-Task.
    As is told, in Ghost there was the 2 Options (‘wait for last member then start’ or ‘start on my command’)
    confusing on my side - already fine…
    u can close this thread =)

    While I don’t have an answer for you on the multicasting parts of your question. If I may collect a little background information to help the others answer your question.

    1. What OS are you using on the FOG server?
    2. What version of FOG are you using. I will guess 1.2.0, but did you upgrade to the trunk version (i.e. pre 1.3.0)?

    The answers provided may change based on these questions.

    Please ensure your main ethernet adapter is called eth0. On some of the newer kernels they moved away from eth0 to be more network adapter specific ( like em0 )
