Installation notes:

DebianEdu wheezy uses with gateway
(e.g. spblinux with ifconfig eth1; cfg_nat start;
in vbox eth0 bridged, eth1 internal connected to tjener)

Installation of ltsp-server:

  • only non automatic partitioning (using guided partitioning) works (21.8.13)

phpldapadmin (

  • apt-get install phpldapadmin
  • changes in /etc/phpldapadmin/config.php
    Uses tls which starts with default port 389 (not ssl, 636, ldaps):
    – $servers->setValue(‘server’,’host’,’ldap‘)
    Login with ou=ldap-access (with password of unix system user root)
    – $servers->setValue(‘login’,’bind_id’,’cn=admin,ou=ldap-access,dc=skole,dc=skolelinux,dc=no’)

Add ltspserver in gosa (
(login as user which has been created during installation of tjener)

  • Systems: Action Add
    – Server name: ltspserver00
    – Mode activated
    – Base /
    – IP-address
    – MAC_address: 12:34:ab…
    (might be looked up by first booting ltspserver:
    and dhcp gives name auto-mac-12-34-ab…)
    – Enable DHCP true and parent node (tjener) dhcp
    – Enable DNS true and Zone TJENER/intern
    – add Terminal service
    Apply and start the service.
    NIS Netgroup:
    Add group ltsp-server-hosts
    – seems to get set in ldap directory, but does not display in gosa
    netgroup gets used as nfs4 authentication.

Nagios (

  • Add ltspserver00 to nagios by running sitesummery-update-nagios
  • Set password for user nagiosadmin with
    htpasswd /etc/nagios3/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
    (and apache2ctl graceful)

Thin clients:

  • when used with vbox: needs vbox extension pack
