Dell 3020 not multicasting!
I have a bunch of dell 3020’s, and they register fine with FOG trunk 7827, and to my knowledge the most recent kernel. I can capture an image, or deploy an image to a single unit. However when I try to group a couple of units and multicast, it just hangs at the blue partclone screen. Pictures attached. **I believe this is because of a failed cancelled multicast task, does anyone know how to clear multicast tasks via terminal. I usually go to images/dev/ and delete out the mac addresses, however I don’t see the macs here once I set a multicast task.
i was stuck at the same screen for days before i found the solution
fog server ip 172.16.1.105
fog hostname debianfog
fog fqdn debianfog.debianfog.local
juts edit your hosts file … nano /etc/hosts and add
172.16.1.105 debianfog.debianfog.local debianfog
Now mullticast starts without any problem
Try to specify the interface in the test command.
udp-sender --file /opt/fog/.fogsettings --log /opt/fog/log/multicast.log --ttl 1 --nopointopoint --portbase 9000 -interface eth1
Should be in Storage Management settings.
Using mcast address 188.8.131.52
UDP sender for (stdin) at 10.3.96.170 on wlan0
Broadcasting control to 184.108.40.206

This is the multicast log!
*** I want udp sender to be going out on eth1, not wlan0. Please help me figure out how to change this.
