Hi just interested to get some ideas about how to cluster/HA LTSP?
04:46
we are use to using Sun Ray server which has a central registration server and multiple "slaves" so that users can reconnect to the same session

hey bugy, how many users and how many clients are involved?

<vasanth>
hello
05:46
i want a help in ltsp server.I have installed ubuntu12.04 precise amd64 in my server.i cant use 32 bit system as my client but can use 64 bit client.Any idea in editing the i386 architecture??
05:49
<alkisg>
vasanth: are you asking about `ltsp-build-client --arch i386` ?
05:51
<vasanth>
but i have already build amd64 image.
05:52
can i build two arch in the same server.
05:52
for both i386 and amd64
05:53
<Montero42>
you can set the dhcp to dish out images based on mac address, and therefore have as many images as you like. otherwise, the server will not know which image to give out.
05:54
<vasanth>
can u please give me a sample configuration for that?
05:55
#root architecture. ARCH=amd64 # ubuntu-desktop and edubuntu-desktop are tested. # If you test with [k|x]ubuntu-desktop, edit this page and mention if it worked OK. # kubuntu lucid (10.10) working okay. FAT_CLIENT_DESKTOPS="ubuntu-desktop" # Space separated list of programs to install. # The java plugin installation contained in ubuntu-restricted-extras # needs some special care, so let's use it as an example. LATE_PACKAGES=" ub
05:55
this is my ltsp-build-clirnt.conf.
05:56
<Montero42>
the handing out of specific images is handled by the dhcp. where you tell the dhcp to send pxe requests is where you can assign images to specific mac addresses.
05:56
or you can just build a i386 image and use it for everything.
05:56mealstrom has left IRC (mealstrom!~Thunderbi@46.63.63.163, Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
05:58
<bugy_>
ark74 - around 1000 users and 500 clients
05:59
so I guess there needs to be some sort of broker
05:59
<Montero42>
bugy: ah, far more than i have been exposed to. i have heard about clustering ltsp servers, and i know you can migrate running images from one server to another.
06:04
<alkisg>
vasanth: yes, you can have 2 different images, but they're more difficult to maintain. Why not just use i386 only?
06:04
<vasanth>
will i386 support for amd64 architecture??
06:04
<alkisg>
Yes
06:04
You can also install your server with i386 too, and use ltsp-pnp, that's the simpler way:
06:05
!ltsp-pnp
06:05
<ltsp>
ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is an alternative (upstream) method to maintain LTSP installations for thin and fat clients that doesn't involve chroots: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
06:05
<vasanth>
then ok i will just remove amd64 from /opt/ltsp/amd64 and i will build i386 image in the same location...is it ok??
06:05
or i need to do any other conf??
06:05
<alkisg>
It's ok
06:06
<vasanth>
And i want to know the mechanism of LTSP working??can u tell me how it works??
06:06
<alkisg>
!docs
06:06
<ltsp>
docs: (#1) For the latest community documentation, see the LTSP wiki at http://wiki.ltsp.org/, or (#2) For a PDF with official documentation, install the ltsp-docs package.
06:06
<alkisg>
Read the docs ^
06:07
<vasanth>
ok because am new in configuring LTSP
06:07
i have almost done all configuration..its working good too..
06:08
u have any idea in backup solution for LTSP??
06:08
<alkisg>
It's the same as in "backup solution for linux", so ask in #ubuntu or google it
06:09
<vasanth>
ok thank you so much
06:10
<alkisg>
You're welcome
06:10
bugy_: X doesn't support reconnections to lost sessions, so you'd need to use x2go or xrdp for that - with the expected loss in speed. You can still use LTSP to netboot those clients.
06:17
<Montero42>
so it is possible to manage multiple images from the ltsp server and not need the DHCP to assign images by mac addresses?
06:19
<alkisg>
Montero42: it is, but I never said that... I too suggested to vasanth to use only i386
06:20
<Montero42>
i was just curious if I was incorrect. I am new to ltsp too and thirsty for knowledge. :)

edubuntu-12.04.5-dvd-amd64.iso LTSP Server - its working boots i386 client, and users can log in :-)
15:46
Q: how can i use the clients hardware, EG: ATi/AMD GPU 2GB and 16GB ddr3 memory? plus it has 6 core cpu? (the client)
