WDS Multicast Content Provider

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The multicast server uses a content provider to transmit the data from the server to the client. The Windows Deployment Services content provider can transfer any file over a multicast transmission. This content provider connects the multicast transmission or namespace to the data that has been requested by clients.


The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

Namespace registration

When a namespace is created, the content provider assigns the data (that will be sent by way of a multicast transmission) to the namespace. The transmission cannot start until the content provider has assigned the data.
