Hello there,

We are trying to setup Ghost to multicast a single image to several machines in one session. Right now we have a lab setup where we are using a PC as the host for Ghost and connected to a Nortel Networks switch. We have 6 ports on the switch configured for multicasting.

We are facing several problems at the moment. First of all most of the time (Not all the time) the ghostcast session won't start even though the GhostCast Server Console says "Ghostcast in Progress", on the workstations we see "Waiting for the Ghoscast Session to start" and second of all we also have the problem that the session timeouts when it does start.

This happens when we try to multicast 3 machines, both in the 6 ports configured for multicasting and the ones that aren't and both when we manually start the session by hitting send and when we let it start automatically.

Does anyone have any ideas?

you need to be more specific. Like.. you will be deploying the same image over the small network. Same type of machine, how are you booting the machines, etc
