I've looked at the fan club ltsp install articles, but I cannot tell if the user accounts for my ltsp users need to reside only on the ltsp image. I believe that is the case, and I've added them there, but when I update the image and try to connect, it's failing and it restarts and asks for the login again. It's really wierd because I can Ctrl+Alt+F1 to pull up a terminal and log in with the credentials just fine.
I'm trying to set up thick/fat i386 clients under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit.
Oh, another bizarre item-- I can login with my credentials under LDM on the ltsp client and it works fine.
Can someone tell me:
- Do ltsp user acounts need to exist on the server? If not, how does it map back to a home folder on the server?
- Whats the relationship between the users and groups on the server with those on the clients? It looks like the update image process does something with them.
- Does LDM use SSH, and if so which SSH server is it talking to? The one on the server or the one on the ltsp client?
Thanks. I've googled my eyes out and RTFM'd until my head hurts.
