<alkisg>
Helenah: which network file system is the server using, e.g. cifs, nfs, sshfs?
00:24
And what about authentication, do users have accounts/passwords there, or is it just one password for the administrator?
00:25
In general you should be able to replace pamltsp with pammount, and authenticate directly to the home server. Or just install ssh to the home server :)
00:25
And tell pamltsp to connect there instead of to the ltsp server...

<Helenah>
alkisg, It would be CIFS, I'm just thinking what the best solution is out of the ones that you've mentioned, oh and sorry for my delayed response by the way. I know this is IRC but I still like to ensure people get a response plus it helps with support if it's all done within the same day.
11:30
So erm...
11:31
having pamltsp connect to the storage server sounds nice seems as the storage server has SSH and the LTSP server is already using pamltsp
11:32
Okay just looking into panltsp :3
11:32
alkisg, I'm assuming it's used for things like credentials and home directories.
11:33
I know that's the purpose of PAM itself, but pamltsp, if the name of it is self explanatory is doing the same thing in a way suitable for LTSP.

<alkisg>
Helenah: do these users have usernames and passwords on the cifs server?
12:57
If so, you can just set SSH_SERVER=that-ip in ltsp.conf
12:57
Then the images will boot from ltsp-server, but home will come from SSH_SERVER
12:57
*the ltsp clients will get the image from the ltsp-server, but home will come from SSH_SERVER
12:59
<Helenah>
Thing is...
13:00
There is also... /home/user/Common
13:00
Where shared stuff is put
13:00
But maybe I can link the common directories together
13:00
o.o
13:00
<alkisg>
That's not a problem. pamltsp mounts user@server:
13:00
That : means "the default user directory"
13:00
It doesn't set a path; so it can be defined on the server without changing anything in ltsp.conf
13:01
So if you ssh user@server, and run pwd, and you're in /home/user/Common, all is fine
