  • please help,not able to multicast to wds

    I am using server 2008r2.I installed wds in server properties multicast I am using use the ip address from following 229.0.0.1 range and in transfer tab I am using keep all clients at same speed and also tried seperate clients into 2 sessions).I am using the simplest autocase.I have install image and boot image of server 2008r2. After adding install.wim to install image and boot.wim to boot image.I right clicked multicast and choose create a multicast transmission.
    Now the problem

    The loading of files started with ip address of 192.168.137.100 which is ip address of wds. when I right click the created multicast trasnmission it shows active status but the number of clients connected stays zero. So means the loading of files which happened is not being done by multicast(none clients connected status in properties of multicast name created,and loading of files is not being done by 229.0.0.1 which would have been multicast). So please help me,where Am I wrong? I am using dhcp dc on same computer. On creating wds I checked both checkboxes for option 60 bla bla. But I have not configured anything in server or scope options by going to dhcp console.

    Please help guide.I am using virtual hyper-v machines for this practice test but i need to delploy machines soon in production may be

    Why are you using 229.0.0.1 as an IP address?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        well, this is default option for multicast the server automatically gives it. right click the wds server and choose properties, it says on multicast tab use address from following range. my ip address range for dhcp is configured for 192.168.137.1 to 192.168.137.150. Since its multicasting ,I guess 229.0.0.1(default option on multicast tab of wds server properties) falls in range of multicasting address. Or if I can use dhcp then please guide me. Since I am using server 2008 r2, I please need the gui steps. Please help me.

              Best get used to it then as there are a whole heap of things that are done via the CLI rather than the GUI.

                I tend to be of the opinion that doing things by commandline is actually an indicator that an administrator knows what they are doing, and not only that, knwos how to understand syntax.
                I'll actually spend the time learning how to do something by the command line, and doing that, rather than just using a GUI. (Where I can.)
