Multicast packets were not sent unless snoop was running.
Customer has a network configuration that uses optical network interface cards.
In the past, during installation, they could not synchronize the DHCP servers. The application had communication error, even with the machine normally responding connectivity tests on the network (ping).
To integrate application modules they had to leave a "snoop -r multicast" capturing packets on Solaris and services were synchronized.
