Its been a while since i used that setup but i believe if you do it your way you will have different streams because they all joined at diff times. If you are dumping an image from the ghost server to the clients then you can have all the ghost clients join the multicast server and then just push it out at once, but if you are dumping the images from the client to the server they will all be different anyway right?
No, the point of multicast is to send one continuous stream and having the switch forward to all "interested" ports. But, if the clients must be receiving the stream at the beginning, then obviuosly yes, you will have to send another stream but use a different multicast address.
As a side note, if your switch supports IGMP snooping, it will constrain this traffic until a Join is received from the PC. If the PC does not send a Join, then you will need to set a static multicast entry on the switch.
there is also a unicast image transport option in the latest Ghost version.
I recommend using unicasts. Multicasts have no advantage while sending an image to/from one PC. (On the contrary, I've noticed many discussions about Ghost breaking networks with multicast flooding.)
The only reason for using multicasts is a case of simultanious image transfer form Ghost server to mutliple PCs at the same time (but you have to start the transfer to all PCs at the same time, of course).
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
