Multicast fails: Cannot find the file specified RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a deployment share that works great for unicasting, and I've now tried enabling multicast in preparation for a big rollout. The namespace was created successfully in WDS, and I've made sure my switches have IGMP snooping enabled, (multicast with Ghost works), however the process always falls back to unicast.

    LTIApply.log has this to say

    During the deployment, I checked C:\MININT\Operating Systems\ReferenceImage, and sure enough the folder was empty. Any thoughts on why this process would be failing, or why it needs to even transfer the image file locally in the first place?

    Gracias

  • Not sure what is going on here, not enough logging. Have you tried enabling WDS logging on the server side?

    The WDSMCast.exe tool can't find the file on the server side, you might want to verify that the namespace was created correctly. The "DeploymentShare$" namespace should point to whatever local directory is on your machine.

    wdsutil /get-allnamespaces
