I'm trying to build a system to do the following:

  • Mark machines in computer lab for multicast imaging
  • Wake them up after-hours
  • Notify me with when the machines have added to the multicast
  • Start multicast as per multicast imaging bundle rules
  • Notify me upon imaging completion, along with errors

I have most of it working, and its pretty nifty, but in order to find out if 10 of 13 machines joined to the multicast, for example, I need to take a scalpel to novell-pbserv.log. I'm assuming there would be somewhere in the logs that shows the increments as each client in the multicast checks in, but darned if I can find it.

Anyone else done any in-depth research in ZCM logs that may be able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!
