• Hello,

    I have been trying to make multicast working fine for a while now, but i still get “Please wait…” forever on every screen. I tried to follow what has been told on the fog wiki about troubleshooting multicast ([url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Troubleshooting_a_multicast[/url]), and everything worked fine, but multicast deployment still does not work when I start it using fog management page.

    I edited /var/www/fog/commons/config.php and /opt/fog/service/etc/config.php so that my password is the good one for both file.

    Here is what I already noticed that seems weird for my non_fog_expert eyes :

    • I have no multicast.log file and no file at all under /opt/fog/log/
    • When I start a multicast task, “ps aux | grep images” and “ps aux | grep udp” returns nothing
    • I installed phpmyadmin, and there is no “fog” user in my users tab

    Any help would be welcome 🙂


  • Hello,

    There is no /opt/fog/service/common/etc/config.php file, I supposed you meant /opt/fog/service/etc/config.php 🙂

    service FOGMulticastManager status does not work, only start|stop|restart, start fail at first, but stop work, then start work, and still no multicast working 😞

    I forgot something else in the “What I have already done list” : ip igmp on all my HP switches, and no router between FOG server and any of my clients.

    update after some more tests: ps aux | grep udp returns something when I run “gunzip -c “/images/anyimagename” | /usr/local/sbin/udp-sender --min-receivers 2 --portbase 9000 --interface myInterface --half-duplex” manually from command line then connect with debug mode 2 clients, but still nothing when I start a new multicast task from fog management webpage.

  • Get the service config file [CODE]cat /opt/fog/service/common/etc/config.php[/CODE] and do [CODE]service FOGMulticastManager status[/CODE] to make sure the manager is actually running.
