Mixing thin and fat clients
 
Hi,

Forgive me if this is a stupid question but can you have* thin clients and fat clients booting of the same LTSP server? Is there a good howto on how to do this? Advice and pointers would be most welcome.


Regards,

Paul Thompson

You can have many LTSP environment for thin client, but you need the
static dhcp for many filename

Example the /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf I create a group with option for kiosk mode

# test LTSP
group {
option root-path "/opt/ltsp/kiosk"; <==== the kiosk mode LTSP
environnment for all PC in the group
next-server 195.221.40.200;
filename "/ltsp/kiosk/pxelinux.0";
# PC (Salle multimedia) prof
host lnt-d00048 {
hardware ethernet 00:1a:a0:34:43:dc;
fixed-address 195.221.40.20;
}
# PC (Salle multimedia) eleve 1
host lnt-d00050 {
hardware ethernet 00:1a:a0:34:44:af;
fixed-address 195.221.40.21;
}

And for other method, you set the filename for every PC:
host test-ltsp1 {
next-server 195.221.40.200;
filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386"; <==== the standard LTSP environnment
hardware ethernet 00:0c:29:27:ec:22;
fixed-address 192.168.62.170;
}
# adresse pour test LTSP
host test-ltsp2 {
option root-path "/opt/ltsp/fati386"; <==== the fat client LTSP
environnment
next-server 195.221.40.200;
filename "/ltsp/fati386/pxelinux.0";
hardware ethernet 00:0c:29:c6:98:9d;
fixed-address 192.168.62.171;
}

And all PC use the same LTSP server

# ls /opt/ltsp/
fati386
i386
kiosk

# ls /opt/ltsp/images
fati386.img
i386.img
kiosk.img

etc etc
