Core as LTSP Server
« on: January 23, 2013, 03:37:09 PM »
Hello all!

I have plans to use Core as a LTSP server on a small office but a question came up: If I use the NetBooting method mentioned on the Wiki, won't be the final result the same as a LTSP Server?

If it ends being the same (sort of), them the remaining question will be: how to put a graphical login manager to the users and share more than one location in the server? (the wiki shows only a single shared nfs)

The only way that I worked with LTSP was with Mandriva and Ubuntu but now I think that Core is enough for everything!

Thanks!

With separate pxe config files, each machine can have its own nfs share.
Also, additional shares can be mounted in bootlocal.sh.

Hello Gerald_Clark!

This way I can have various home directories in the server, right? If I make the /etc/skel persistent on server, it will load the default config for each user when created, right?

I need to have specific user spaces on the server and a public space accessed for everyone.

If I have one single Win7 machine on the network (to read/write the public space), I have to use samba or there is some way to make nfs work for it too?

Thanks!

Google  windows7 nfs client.  Your available options are a function of which version of Win7 you are running.
