> Sorry, but how do I do that?I have not tested, but I expect this change to work. Modify
/var/lib/tftpboot/debian-edu/ltsp-diskless.cfg, which originially have
MENU LABEL LTSP ^diskless workstation
APPEND initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img nfsroot=/opt/ltsp/i386 boot=nfs ro quiet 3
Change the nfsroot variable to use ltspserver:/opt/ltsp/i386, like
APPEND initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img nfsroot=ltspserver:/opt/ltsp/i386 boot=nfs ro quiet 3
This assume the main-server was installed as a combined server, making
the LTSP kernel and initrd present on the disk. If the files are not
present, you need to copy them to the main server (or do a much more
complex setup with PXE handover to the diskless workstation server,
which I will not try to describe here).
I copied ltsp from /var/lib/tftpboot on ltspserver00 into the same dir on tjener.
I also copied over /var/lib/tftpboot/debian-edu/default-diskless.cfg which didn't exist on tjener either. It isn't as above, but like this after making the change:
DEFAULT ltsp/i386/vmlinuz initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img nfsroot=10.0.2.10:/opt/ltsp/i386 boot=nfs ro quiet 3
IP has to be used for the server.
Then I changed the symlink in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg on tjener to point to the above file.
Should I put this on the wiki, or is this not a normal scenario?
Thanks very much.
