Hi Sebastian, in that GUI interface can you give it a range of IP addresses to use?
So when multiple multicasts are started the Group ID is different for each one?
I have multicast up and running and everything is working on our network. In testing when monitoring the network we noticed that the FoG server uses the same MultiCast group ID for each active multicast session, and we measured increased throughput on each of the links to the different multicasts but had slower speeds reported by PartClone on the clients and slower times for the transfer once the multicast was done.
We are replacing Symantec Ghost and in the Ghost Server application by default there was an option to select a range of MultiCast addresses, is there that functionality in FoG, if not how does the FoG server handle multiple MultiCasts?
I see my usernames that I’m testing with and the ones from the Admin group have a UType of 990 and the the username from the Mobile group has 991. There is also the UDisplay field that is Admin for the default FoG account but an empty string for the users I’ve added.
My plan would be to keep Admin and Technician users separated in AD with the Mobile and Admin LDAP search options and then once verified use the Access Control Plugin to assign rights to the users based on their UType.
Is this something that could work?
Re: Access Control
I’m currently setting up FoG and I got the LDAP plugin working with two security groups Admin and Mobile and I found this thread form earlier this year that mobile no longer exists.
Is there plans to tie the Access Control plugin with the LDAP plugin where I can assign roles to LDAP users of FoG?
If not is the only way to use the Access Control plugin to use users created from the FoG GUI user menu?
