    I am still in process of setting up CloneDeploy - as a racked replacement for my Desktop based CWDS.

    I am having issues multicasting, all machines join the queue however they sit idle and it never triggers.

    The server is on a different subnet but I am told this has been opened, can anyone assist in what issue could be?

    I suspect it's network related but how could I confirm?

    I have an ESX server with a VM of 2008 R2 sat off a DMZ. Then all VLANS are opened up via FW to the server on DMZ.

    But , the setup is pretty much the same.

    I think it works faster and easier to have just a desktop sat on the same network than doing it this way though. But I am in process of uploading/downloading 1st image before I look at tweaks to try and improve response and speed.

    Currently set to 100MB duplex but may see about ramping this up.

    I am setting this up on a Domain and a racked server with multiple VLANS which clients reside on

    I don't use Windows firewall, but we have these Ports opened up on our Physical Cisco Firewalls.

    In most cases this may not be needed, but I work in an secure environment whereas ports are closed by default.

    I can see share now 445 is open.

    Still awaiting 445 at my end to be opened by our network guys, will post when done and test again.

    think I accidently had 443 opened instead.

    Make sure the usernames and passwords of the CD accounts match what is in the CloneDeploy config to what you have in the windows admin -> users (My Computer -> Manage gets you there).

    I had to also manually navigate to the share which is in Program File (86x) \ Clonedeploy and make sure that the accounts have the permissions in both the Share Permissions in Share tab and security permissions in security tab.

    I may have overlooked the port 445 been opened.

    Will check and confirm.

    I have got an issue in which when trying to upload first image It says ERROR - Unable to mount SMB share.

    I have manually changed passwords on local user accounts for the shares, and set the new password in the Admin -> Distrubution point.

    I noticed that this didn't help, and I also noticed I didn't have permission to make change to share. Although Share settings were set, security settings were not.

    I have amended these, rebooted - but still having same issue.

    What else can I check?

    I don't know if this helps but I am in the process of migrating from CWDS to CD and will be creating a ESX host/VM which I will run CD on. The server itself is to be setup with RAID 5 in the event 1 drive goes down it should be rebuild able once replaced.

    I'll also just be making a backup manually of the Databases and images to seperate storage as getting a server up and running from OS->CD is a matter of minutes.

    That's my plan anyway.
