I am new to multicasting and to UDPCast. I was wondering if it is possible
to save a complete system to an image file, preferable lzoped or gziped,
and then multicast the image to a number of computers using UDPCast?
Yes, it is. To save the image, just run the udpcast receiver on your
fileserver machine, from the command line:
udp-receiver -f image-file.bin
To restore it, start a sender:
udp-sender -f image-file.bin
Note: if your fileserver machine has more than one interface, you need
to specify the interface that you are using:
udp-receiver -f image-file.bin -i eth0
udp-sender -f image-file.bin -i eth0
Compression/decompression happens on the machines to be imaged.
