KIWI-LTSP multiple image support improvements

September 8th, 2010 by

Savin Alex has been busy working on improving kiwi-ltsp lately. The basic idea behind the new development is easier management of multiple LTSP images that can be served over NBD or AOE. Earlier Shrenik Bhura had added multiple image support for AOE, now it is also supported when using NBD.

For example, with very powerful hardware available, images of KDE, GNOME desktops or any other profile of your choice  can be served as  LTSP_FATCLIENT, this will enable images to use resources on the clients’ local hardware instead of traditional LTSP way of running all the client sessions on the server. Advantage of this way is making use of local hardware resources and central management of OS deployed in the entire network. LTSP can also be clustered to load balance and in case one of the servers fail.

New development also include easier way of managing PXE boot menu. See kiwi-ltsp-setup –intro for more.
