<JerryT>
Is there an alternative to LTSP-Cluster? It appears as though the project has been discontinued.

<alkisg_web>
JerryT: yes ltsp-cluster isn't actively maintained anymore, are you asking mainly for load balancing?
21:13
Because ltsp is nowadays using mostly netbooted fat clients, so there's not much need for balancing between application servers...
21:13
!ltsp-pnp
21:13
<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
21:14
<vagrantc>
mostly, as in it's what's recommended but we haven't yet switched the defaults :)
21:15
<alkisg_web>
...maybe we'll do something about it in the december ltsp hackfest :D
21:15
sbalneav also said he'll probably be available!
21:17
<JerryT>
Nice
21:17
<vagrantc>
oh!
21:17
<JerryT>
Well our thing clients are pretty powerful machines but lack any type of storage.
21:17
<alkisg_web>
That's exactly what ltsp targets nowadays
21:17
<vagrantc>
perfect use-case for fatclients
21:17
<JerryT>
Will it still work with this setup alkisg_web?
21:18
<alkisg_web>
Do a test ltsp-pnp installation
21:18
<JerryT>
Good, good
21:18
<alkisg_web>
Yes, that's the ideal setup

21:30
<JerryT>
alkisg_web, how do you manage accounts?
21:30
That was the other part of ltsp-cluster that we used a lot.
21:34
<alkisg_web>
JerryT: we have build a GUI application for that, called "sch-scripts"
21:34
It has a nice gui for creating, editing, importing users, and even supports mass user creation with templates
21:35
Unfortunately now it's greek-only, maybe if we find some funding we'll internationalize that one too, like we did with epoptes
21:36
Ah and it supports shared folders as well, e.g. one shared folder for group a1, one for b1... with automatic permissions managing, using bindfs
