Checklist: Create a Multicast Transmission

Updated: January 29, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Multicast in Windows Deployment Services allows you to deploy an image to a large number of client computers without overburdening the network. When you enable a multicast transmission for an image, the image is sent over the network only once, which can drastically reduce the network bandwidth that is used.
