Event ID 512 — Multicast Initialization

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When the WDSServer service is started, the multicast server initializes. During initialization, the multicast server reads the configuration settings and determines whether any multicast transmissions or namespaces are still valid (and restarts them if they are). The multicast server must initialize successfully before it can function correctly.
