Multicast address when setting up Horizontal scaling

While setting up the Horizontal Scaling in HP Service Manager , we have to provide the multicast address because servlets (nodes) communicate with LB manager by User Datagram Protocol ( UDP), so multicast address is required.

The below command will help us to show the multicast address in our current network:

Use the following command in cmd:

netsh interface ip show joins


After the result returned, we can add it to the parameter of sm.ini:

groupmcastaddress:< multicast address>
