      This is a request for adding a validate-nodes-multicast command. This would be
      a remote command (running in the DAS) that would use the SSH information in SSH
      nodes to start validate-multicast on each node, and then would collect the
      output and give a picture of what the multicast situation is for the entire
      collection of nodes that are defined for the domain.

      For example, if all nodes can communicate with each other via multicast (the
      ideal situation for GMS), the output might be:

      Multicast Groups:
      1: localhost (DAS), n1, n2, n3, n4

      However, if we have only n1<->n2 and n3<->n4 communicating, and the DAS can't
      multicast to any of them, then the output could be:

      Multicast Groups:
      1: n1, n2
      2: n3, n4

      Isolated Nodes:
      localhost (DAS)

      If we had the situation where multicast doesn't work at all, the output could

      Isolated Nodes:
      localhost (DAS), n1, n2, n3, n4

      This information can currently be derived by running "asadmin validate-
      multicast" on all of the nodes, and then analyzing the output. The idea of this
      command is to automate the running of the command on all the nodes and to
      analyze the output for the user.
