Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please check the following points:

  - Did you set -d option to specify object store directory?
  - The directory is on btrfs or ext3 with user_xattr mount option?
  - Did you run 'shepherd mkfs' to start Sheepdog?

If it still does not work, please send me logs
in /var/log/syslog and /tmp/sheepdog*

I use JGroups 2.6.3.GA-1 in debian lenny package.
Sheepdog uses as a multicast address,
so your multicast setting is correct, I guess.
