<eadthem_cor>
Can all thinclients login to the LTSP server as the same account?
20:11
is it possable to have accounts auto created and then distroyed when they log out?
20:12
were planning to use LTSP for non profits 1 of which is at a prison half way house.
20:12
the issue is there will be a continuse string of pepole comeing thrue, and would prefer to not have to make accounts for everyone
20:12
manualy
20:12
<maldridge>
eadthem_cor: you *can* log everything in as one account, but its generally considered to be a bad idea
20:13
<eadthem_cor>
because they will be shareing the same XFCE config, and overwriting each other among other things?
20:15
<maldridge>
well, more they will all be the same session
20:15
<eadthem_cor>
i mean i want to do this so on first login there account is made
20:15
oh
20:15khildin has left IRC (khildin!~khildin@ip-62-235-41-144.dial.scarlet.be, Remote host closed the connection)
20:16
<eadthem_cor>
and then if they dont log in for a long time the account is cleaned up
20:16
im sure the cleanup i can cron job that
20:16
but the auto account creation, that im not sure of
20:16
<maldridge>
you could do it with a web page pretty easily
20:16
but its insecure
20:17
<eadthem_cor>
i can secure a web page
20:17
but as for new users, ya the idea is anyone can walk up to it, and make a user
20:18
i mean part of me is also thinking i could make the accounts totaly wipe themselves on logout
20:18
and then they just need to use a thumbdrive for any personal files
20:19
<ogra_>
you cant really use the same session for all clients ... if multiple users use the same app the app settings will get messed up
20:19
(and caches etc)
20:20
<eadthem_cor>
that i have established
20:20
<ogra_>
use one account per client
20:20
<maldridge>
ogra_: I think he wants users to have actual accounts, but that get aged out
20:20
<ogra_>
ah
20:21
<eadthem_cor>
this is for a prisons halfway house setup
20:21
<ogra_>
yeah, i didnt read all of the backlog :P
20:21
<eadthem_cor>
they have had a lot of thefs and damaged computer equipment
20:21
so were working with them on a new method that only a cheep thinclient is at risk
20:22
or thats the idea
20:22
<maldridge>
eadthem_cor: that sounds like an interesting idea, you could auto generate accounts without too much difficulty, and you can age them out without too much difficulty
20:22
<ogra_>
right, and a diskless client is of no use without the server
20:22
<eadthem_cor>
exactly
20:23
<maldridge>
the problem you will run into is that you need at least one client that is always logged into your "account kiosk" that lets new users get accounts
20:23
<eadthem_cor>
ok lets set aside individual accounts for a sec
20:23
how hard is it to make each client auto login there own account based on there mac or ip or something set before hand
20:24
because if that can be done, i can always script the part that wipes the accounts and resets everything on a timer.
20:25
<maldridge>
eadthem_cor: not that hard
20:25
<eadthem_cor>
k this helps give me some ideas of whats possable
20:26
<maldridge>
eadthem_cor: you'll probably want to use some kind of configuration management so that you can programatically add the machines and users
20:26
i.e. you build out your config files in loops
20:26
<eadthem_cor>
if someone puts a thumbdrive in the thin client to store personal stuff on, would that be automounted/
20:26
?
20:27
<maldridge>
depending on the format/DE, probably
20:29
<eadthem_cor>
i woudl assume fat32 / ntfs
20:34
<maldridge>
yeah, should work
