Unable to multicast with DFS-R RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have set up DFS-R to deploy workstations from a remote site.

    This works fine for unicast.

    However, when I enable multicast, it tries multicasting from the wrong site site even though we have customsettings.ini and boot.ini set as DeployRoot=\\%WDSServer%\DeploymentShare$.  I look in the WDS properties and see mulicast running from the site that isn't local to the workstations

    As a test, I tried hard coding the deployroot to the site local to the workstation we are working with and now multicast doesn't get triggered at all, yet it still runs incredible slowly.

    Of course, the enable multicasting check box is enabled.

    What else needs to be configured to make multicasting work along with DFS-R?
