Re: NFS4 and Kerberos interrest and our diskless RW AUFS overlaid root

Dear Mike,

I have noticed that you work on switching to NFS4+krb5 for homes
on school workstations. I am very interrested to switch to similar
for our university labs setup. We use Debian servers and diskless
workstations in our setups.

I would be very happy if you document your setup when you have
it working. The description from Mike Gabriel is the best
cookbook I have seen till now for this. I have been looking
for keyrings notices for years already but there has been
no simple specification how to use these and what level of integration
with distribution and mainline is reached.

I would be extremely happy if we could use single export of all homes
and protect access form individual client machines by logged in user

By the coincidence I have prepared some documentation for our
local GNU/Linux/open-source conference InstallFest
<http://www.installfest.cz/if11/> about diskless boot
with readonly root and RW AUFS overlays which works quite well
for us but the secured user level access control to homes is missing
in our setup. May it be, something from my slides could
be reused by you


the configuration in form of patchseries for demonstration
(not our main production) server


Thanks for possible more information about your setup and experience
in advance.

Best wishes,

                Pavel Pisa
