Multicasting K2200 RSA
We have just upgraded our physical K2200 & RSA's to 3.6, so we can take advantage of multicasting.
In my test network, I have syncronised my wim images, and all associated files with the RSA, then configured a small multicast job on the physical K2200.
Initially, it all looks fine, I get a task engine window, detailing all the tasks involved, but it fails when it comes to applying the image.
The task list continues to run until it hits "Setup Post Install Tasks", where it complains about a vbs script not running correctly, before rebooting the pc.
The strange thing is, if I set up an identical task as an automated Unicast job or manual deployment, the job will run without errors.
Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Good Morning C-Team,
Unfortunately the RSAs do not support Multicasting. Only the K2200 Appliance supports it. Meaning, you can only image with multicasting if you’re booting directly into the K2200. It’s upsetting, I know. I yelled at my Rep and yelled at the KACE Tech Support Team.
99% of our district imaging is done through the RSAs. The only thing you can do is setup multiple RSA at each site. I’ll post more details soon. I’m stepping out to a meeting.
