sounds like ESX has issues with multicast packets transmittet over its virtual switches. it is possible to specify all ray servers directly. can't remember how/where, but i am sure you'll find that info in the archives of this list.

i am also pretty certain, that it is possible to get the multicast packets transmittet over ESX virtual switches.

further, i remember, on our cisco switches multicast was turned off by default and those packets were dropped on our physical switches. it was pretty simple to turn on forwarding multicast in IOS.

good luck, niki
