If I am running a thin client on an LTSP server, is there any way to mount the client local hard drive ?

I know the system is not running on the client, but as I can use removable devices (USB sticks, CD/DVD), can't I use the local drive ?

Thanks for answering !

  • Tried mount /dev/sdx /mnt/sdx? – Wilhelm Erasmus Apr 15 '15 at 17:53
  • Yes. As the system does not run on the client, I cannot see the local drive, even using fdisk or blkid. – Alexandre CATTEAU Apr 15 '15 at 18:14

You have to set the options LOCALDEV = true and LOCALDEV_DENY_INTERNAL_DISKS = false in your lts.conf which you will usually find under /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/"arch"/lts.conf. Replace "arch" with the client architecture you want to modify (in most cases one of i386 or amd64). See also http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Tips_and_Tricks/Devices
