I've installed an LTSP server on my linux desktop 12.04 (virtual machine), set all the necessary network settings.
Now I created a thin client using virtualbox, booted (after starting up the server obviously), the client connects to the ip address, boots, but all i see is a busybox.
Shoudln't there be a desktop??
I tried installing an LTSP server on a 10.04 desktop, this time the client booted in a busybox with this error: Error: failed to connect to NBD server.
I followed this guide : http://www.thefanclub.co.za/how-to/how-create-ubuntu-1104-x64-ltsp-server-32bit-thin-clients
except for the client I created a "host only" NIC instead of a bridged one.
I've really been stuck with this for a long time, could somebody please help?
I figured out the problem. Turns out the nbd-server config had the wrong export path
go to /opt/nbd-server/config
[export] exportname= /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img port = 2000
restart the nbd-server witht he command
sudo /etc/init.d/nbd-server restart
Also, I'm not sure but I suspect that you have to chose a static IP address different from the gateway address.
and voilà solved.
I have the same error, but file ltsp_amd64.conf in /etc/nbd-server/conf.d/ is ok. There are the same strings with amd64 instead i386 (autoreplaced at build).
[/opt/ltsp/amd64] exportname = /opt/ltsp/images/amd64.img readonly = true authfile = /etc/ltsp/nbd-server.allow
