Multicast fail on windows and linux version

  1. 10 months ago

    I have a problem with clonedeploy on MultiCast on demand and on Multicast for Group.
    I have installed windows version and linux version and i have the same problem on both
    I use win10 winpe 64 to boot my clients. All is ok, it's tell me username and password (administrator account).

    Then the multicast session start with de message deploying but nothing hapen. I have seen communication with wireshark
    and i noticed that each member of the multicast session are attach with a same ip and join the group with a multicast address ie 239.10.X.X. Then clonedeploy server send on UDP to the multicast ip unique address. But nothing

    With wireshark I have notice that clients leave the group 2 seconds after having join it. I make me wonder. Can you explain if it may be some configuration fields to ajust on config files. My server is n Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and the firewall is of.

    Therefore, all is ok on Unicast, it works fine

  2. Do you have only one NIC on this server?

    @processor is correct. If there is more than 1 nic, that's probably the issue. Also, can you try multicasting a group with only a single computer in the group.

  4. Hi,
    I have only one NIC on this server, I have try with one machine with "start on Demand Multicast", i boot on w10 pe, some messages appears quicky on the screen : i describe them below

    Are you using 1.3.3?

  6. Hi,

    No it is clonedeploy 1.3.0 on windows and on linux server. Do you have some others iso boot with windows PE and others kernels to boot with uefi on core i3 7th generation?
    I thank you very much

    It reminds me a problem I had with ghost. Does your multicast server and your clients are on the same switch?

    My multicast packets misforwarded or droped.

    If they are not on the same switch (clients and server), take a look at this :

    And then :


  8. I thank to you processor, but they are on the same switch NetGear ProSafe 24 Port Gigabit Switch JGS524 and i used it with clonezilla server with multicast and it worked well.
    A make me wonder now.... I have not ideas for my problem

    Can you try upgrading to 1.3.3 to see if this hasn't been fixed already?

  10. Yes I want to do it. Do you have an upgrade pack in your download section ? and the procedure to install it?
    I thank you very much.

    It should do it through the gui, not why it isn't so you'll need to do it manually.

    In the application folder/private/dbscripts there are 3 scripts
    import each one in order

  18. Thank you very much. It's work.
    I can access to GUI now. Now I want to try to clone with multicast, there's are particulars parameters to do it inside admin menu ?

  19. I have try with 2 computers on multicast on demand

    it's write ....please wait. Can you see if there's someting wrong ?
