Hello - I am having trouble launching my fat client sessions.. I can get a login screen and then try to login - after 30 seconds it errors saying it could not contact the sever - then asks for a username again... is there something I am missing? I tried remaking the ssh keys with no luck
04:47

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ClientTroubleshooting#Using%20a%20shell%20SCREEN
04:48
msignor_work: use this ^ to get a local shell
04:48
Then from that local shell try: ssh user@server
04:49
Replace "user" with an existing username. Leave "server" exactly as it is, don't substitute it with anything.
04:49
See if you get any ssh warnings.
04:49
<msignor_work>
alkisg: hey dude - ill vnc in and give it a shot - image was pretty painless to put un. this is looking surprisingly lean so far :-)
04:50
<alkisg>
msignor_work: ah now i remembered your setup, wait
04:50
I'll give you an lts.conf to bypass ssh checks
04:50
LDM_SSHOPTIONS="-o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o CheckHostIP=no -o LogLevel=silent"
04:51
With this you don't need to worry about updating keys etc
04:52
<msignor_work>
in /opt or /tftpboot
04:53
<alkisg>
In lts.conf. An ubuntu chroot will look for it in tftp first.
04:53
<msignor_work>
cool, thats where i'm editing already
05:00
hah - awesome
05:01
alkisg: no home folder via NFS yet - but certainly a TON easier / further than I was 2 days ago!
05:02
if there is an LTS in the chroot image, will that take priority over one that is in tftpboot?
05:03
<alkisg>
msignor_work: I think it'll be used as a fall back, if no lts.conf is found tftp
05:04
msignor_work: for NFS home, just put NFS_HOME=/home in lts.conf, AND
05:04
install nfs-common in the chroot,
05:04
and export /home in your /etc/exports
05:04
<msignor_work>
damn - that means I need to rebuild the image
05:04
yeah I have those exports workin :-)

<mateobur>
I just installed LSTP, but the clients fail with a "NBP is to big to fit in the free base memory"
05:05

alkisg: I must of read 100 wiki pages! I'll double check and report back - thx

<alkisg>
I.e. it's a pxe problem. What client are you using?
05:07
Etherboot? Boot floppy?
05:07
<mateobur>
etherboot
05:09
<alkisg>
The client has an etherboot ROM written in its motherboard?
05:09
<mateobur>
yes, you can set it to boot with PXE...
05:09
<alkisg>
Etherboot is too old and is not well supported
05:09
Which distro/version?
05:10
<mateobur>
ubuntu 10.04
05:10
<alkisg>
Etherboot (nbi) support is completely broken in ubuntu 10.04
05:10
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mknbi/+bug/487826
05:11
<mateobur>
and how are you supposed to boot over a network?
05:11
<alkisg>
With PXE
05:11
Etherboot is not PXE. The successor to Etherboot, gPXE, is properly supported.
05:11
<mateobur>
mmm
05:12
my network cards are set to PXE
05:12
we are using PXER
05:12
*PXE
05:12
<alkisg>
You said "etherboot"
05:12
Please be specific.
05:12
<mateobur>
sorry
05:13
<alkisg>
So you don't have http://www.etherboot.org in your boot rom?
05:13
<mateobur>
actually the complete error is PXE-E79: NBP is too big...
05:14
no, we are using the PXE from the motherboard
05:15
<alkisg>
There are some products that have etherboot in their motherboard
05:15
And there's a known bug about it
05:15
That's why I'm asking about etherboot
05:15
<mateobur>
ok, I don't think is the case here :S
05:15
<alkisg>
If you're sure you don't have it in your motherboard, ok, paste your /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf to http://ltsp.pastebin.com

Then: sudo invoke-rc.d dhcp3-server restart

Any change?

<markit>
hi alkisg, I've checked the school nbd-proxy config (since you guessed was enabled again after the upgrade to kubunut 10.10) and I've found a strange situation
06:01
in /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-image.conf I had BOOTPROMPT_OPTIONS="quiet splash nbd_proxy=false nbdport=2000"
06:01
but in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default I had NO nbd_proxy=false
06:01
<alkisg>
Maybe you put it there after some advice
06:01
<markit>
I'm sure I've rebuild the nbd image
06:02
<alkisg>
It goes like this:
06:02
ltsp-update-image.conf is used if you call ltsp-update-image --force
06:02
That updates /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default
06:02
<markit>
I use --force since I have to build for i386 while "server" is 64 bit, right?
06:02
<alkisg>
And then when you call ltsp-update-kernels, that goes to /var/lib/tftp
06:03
No, you're talking about --arch i386
06:03
While --force is another thing
06:03
<markit>
ops
06:03
ltsp-update-image --arch=i386
06:03
mmm so I never used --force, I guess
06:03
<alkisg>
So. You need: ltsp-update-image --force --arch=i386
06:03
Once. Then you don't need --force again.
06:03
<markit>
ok, that explains A LOT
06:03
mmm I feel so ignorant and dumb
06:04
<alkisg>
This specific part is handled strangely
06:04
It took me some time to figure it out too
06:04
<markit>
I thank you for your help, but also I'm very frightened about how "fragile" the system is, without proper guidance
06:04
it should work "out of the box", and if something has to be changed, should keep changes easely
06:05
<alkisg>
Indeed, noone had time to program such a system yet
06:05
<markit>
I'm sure in some month's time I will forget about hte --force parameter
06:05
and mess things up again
06:08
alkisg: btw, in a pair of weeks time, I hope, school will have 18 brand new i3-540, 4GB ram, diskless "fat clients" :)
06:08
I will ask you some tips about fat ltsp then
06:08
I think it will boost user's experience a lot
06:09
but to be sincere, thin clients are doing very well except some really "low performance video " ones
06:13
[14:03] <alkisg> Once. Then you don't need --force again.
06:13
what do you mean "not need again"?
06:14
<alkisg>
markit: for the fat clients, nice, sure, you'll see a lot of performance improvement
06:15
for --force, I mean that it will read ltsp-update-image.conf, and it will update /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default
06:15
So you don't need to use --force again, as ltsp-update-kernels reads /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default, which will be fixed
06:16
So after that one time, you can continue running only: ltsp-update-image --arch=i386.
06:16
<markit>
AH!
06:17
back to fat clients, I do hope they will be able to boot with on board PXE, I had some troubles with some boards (old ones)
06:17
I've seen the iPXE project you suggested me
06:17
I would try chainload with it
06:17
<mateobur>
hello alkisg, 9 out of 10 terminals
06:17
are working
06:17
:D
06:17
<markit>
(I don't know how to set with dnsmasq though...)
06:18
<alkisg>
mateobur: nice. I wonder why it was sending the .nbi image thought, if it's a broadcom pxe rom
06:18
<mateobur>
alkisg, the one that is failing doesn't pass the ubuntu load image
06:19
if I press Esc
06:19
it says
06:19
udhcpc starting
06:20
sending discover...
06:20
3 or 4 times
06:20
No lease, failing
06:22
<markit>
alkisg: for having the ndb-proxy fix put upstream in 10.10 and beyond, you told me I would have to do something in ubuntu site. I took note, had no time to do, and now can't find what to do. If you just repeat me some "magic word" about what to do, i can find it easely in notes and do today
06:23
alkisg: found, never mind
06:24
(as usual... you can't find anything until you ask somebody else, lol)
06:24
and was about https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dbus/+bug/552404 not nbd-proxy
06:24
I've a messy mind, I guess

At the end of the file, on a new line, put this:

IPAPPEND 3
06:30
Save, reboot the problematic client and see if it works
06:30
If it does you'll need a better workaround, this is temporary.
06:31
markit: no it's not needed, another person verified it for maverick
06:31
<markit>
ok, sorry for my "lazyness" and thanks once again for your contribution to ltsp

<matrix3000>
can anyone explain why I would be getting this error as im booting up into ubuntu thin client
07:42
i press F1 and i see its sending 3 dhcp discover requests
07:43
then a Sending select for 192.168.10.38, gets a NAK and then sends another discover, and basically loops
07:43
that same process
07:44
the terminal server is on 192.168.4.0/23 and the client is on 192.168.10.0/24 there is a router routing the two networks
08:00
<Lumiere>
matrix3000: the server cannot dhcp to the client and therefore cannot provide network boot information
08:00
generally all clients need to be on the same subnetwork as the server
08:01
<matrix3000>
so i have to use the ltsp dhcp server and cannot run network boot off of another dhcp server?
08:02
<evil_root>
your dhcp server must be on the same subnet as the clients, all other services like tftboot or your xservers can be on a different subnet
08:02
<matrix3000>
then i should be fine
08:03
the DHCP server is on the 192.168.10 and publishing the tftp on 192.168.4
08:04
<evil_root>
so its passing to the clients, next-server 192.168.4
08:04
<matrix3000>
so on dhcp on 10.0/24 option 66 is set as 4.2 which is the ip of the tftp running on our ltsp server
08:04
<evil_root>
?
08:04
<matrix3000>
yes
08:04
it boots, but when it gets to the screen loading the OS, it keeps on doing a DHCP discover
08:04
<evil_root>
then you should be ok, after the client gets the ip, it will try to talk to the "next-server"
08:04
<matrix3000>
and NAKing
08:05
yep, so in theory this should work
08:05
<evil_root>
so the client does not even pull an ip?
08:05
<matrix3000>
it does in PXE

tries to validate it
10:14
at which point it breaks with a hash function
10:15
but the server has set the lease into it's list

IPAPPEND 3
10:55
Then reboot the client
10:56
<matrix3000>
what does IPAPPEND 3 do?
10:56
<alkisg>
It reuses the PXE ip
10:56
<matrix3000>
oh ok, will i need to reset anything on the terminal server
10:56
<alkisg>
No
10:56
<matrix3000>
ok, and whre should I put the "IPAPPEND 3" on the file, top or bottom
10:57
<alkisg>
Bottom, on a new line
11:00
<matrix3000>
ok, well it got it working on VMWare, but on this desktop i have next to me, now I get a Error: failed to connect to NBD server
11:00

Do you get a busybox shell?
11:00
<matrix3000>
yes
11:00
BusyBox v1.13.3

11:05

matrix3000: can you put this file to pastebin? /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/ltsp_nbd
11:05
Right
11:05
So you don't have the fix
11:05
Wait
11:06
<matrix3000>
what
11:06
<alkisg>
Get this file: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/view/head:/client/initramfs/scripts/ltsp_nbd
11:06
(click on "download file")
11:07
Backup your /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/ltsp_nbd and replace it with the file you downloaded
11:07
Then on your server, run:
11:07
<matrix3000>
will it affect my current running terminal clients if i do this
11:07
cause it is middle of business day
11:07
<alkisg>
sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 update-initramfs -u
11:07
sudo ltsp-update-kernels
11:08
<matrix3000>
will this affect the people currently connected to the terminal server
11:08
<alkisg>
It won't affect the people currently connected. There's a specific, small chance it will affect people that will login from now on
11:08
I.e. if you updated your chroot, got a newer kernel, and didn't run ltsp-update-kernels since
11:09
<matrix3000>
how will it affect people that login from now on
11:09
<alkisg>
If you didn't do that (update kernels without running ltsp-update-kernels/image), then you won't have any problems at all
11:09
If you're not sure, you may want to wait until the end of the business day

11:15
So he couldn't boot the clients anymore
11:16
<matrix3000>
ah
11:16
lol
11:16
<alkisg>
Problems do happen, so if you're too unsure, just leave it for later
11:16
<matrix3000>
ill save it for around 6pm
11:16
<alkisg>
You can also just backup the whole tftp dir, and quickly revert it if something goes wrong
11:17
(those commands that I said above, basically modify /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/initrd*.img)

matrix3000: that workaround with IPAPPEND 3 was temporary, you need a better fix for that, or at least to declare it to /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-image.conf
13:44
<matrix3000>
but I did have to add that one line back into the ipappend 3
13:44
yea
13:44
<alkisg>
The other one with ltsp_nbd was ok
13:44
<matrix3000>
i had to add ipappend 3 back
13:44
but now it boots on everything throughout the network
13:45
what's a better fix for the ipappend 3?
13:45
<alkisg>
2) to declare it to /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-image.conf
13:45
1) to get the fixed udhcp from maverick
13:45
(2) is easier :)
13:45
<matrix3000>
yea, cause the dhcp is running on another system
13:46
<msignor_work>
alkisg: no dice :-/
13:46
<alkisg>
msignor_work: is nfs mounted on the client?
13:47
<matrix3000>
now alkisg, if I edit that ltsp-update-image.conf, do i have to run anything after that or will it be good
13:48
<alkisg>
matrix3000: (1) either edit /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default (==quicker), or (2) run ltsp-update-image --force so that it edits the file automatically
13:48
<matrix3000>
ah ok
13:48
i already added it to the default file, so do I just need to add it to ltsp-update.... at the end of the file to keep the setting perm
13:49
<alkisg>
Check the path above, it's a different /default file
13:49
Add it to ltsp-update-image, on the BOOTPROMPT_OPTIONS line
13:50
<matrix3000>
i dont see that line
13:50
i have a NO_COMP="......"
13:50
<msignor_work>
alkisg: yes, its mounted as //mnt/ssd/home /home
13:51
<alkisg>
matrix3000: sorry you're right, add it yourself at the end of the file: IPAPPEND=3
13:51
(it needs a shell syntax there, with =)
13:51
<matrix3000>
alkisg, ok so instead of ipappend 3 i use ipappend=3
13:51
<alkisg>
Caps
13:51
IPAPPEND=3
13:52
<matrix3000>
k
13:52

whats the diff between /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/pxelinux.cfg/default and /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default
13:53
<alkisg>
msignor_work: ok, so, after a failed login attempt, do you see anything in the client syslog?
13:53
matrix3000: the second is copied to the first when you run ltsp-update-kernels
13:53
<matrix3000>
oh ok
13:54
then why did i edit the ltsp-update-image?
13:54
<alkisg>
Because when you run ltsp-update-image --force (or ltsp-build-client), it modifies /opt/..../default
13:55
It's a chain of 3 links :)
13:55
<msignor_work>
alkisg: nbd9 unknown partition table and then --- Error connecting to console kit

however as root, i can get in there and write a file no problem
13:55
ahh -- wait
13:55
i lied
13:55
i cant write a file to the share
13:56

That's because you don't have no_root_squash
13:57
Not a problem there
13:57

I thought i had that in my export :-/
13:57
<alkisg>
Can you try forcing LTSP_FATCLIENT=False, and to remove NFS_HOME for the test?
13:58
<msignor_work>
yeah, i can -- it will be slower than sh**
13:58
lol

This should allow you to log in and to check that the UID and GIDS are transferred ok
