This contribution adds a server manager panel that allows an administrator to manage thinclient workstations (ie. workstations that are using the pxeboot protocol to retrieve a boot image from the server).
For usage see Thinclient usage.
- smeserver >= 10.0
- smeserver-pxe (will be installed as a dependency when installing smeserver-thinclient)
- The thinclient workstations are receiving their dhcp info from your smeserver.
- A tftp-server, either on your smeserver or another server in your domain (I have also created a contrib to install a tftp server on your smeserver).
- The thinclient workstations have a PXE capable NIC and BIOS. (although booting from usb stick, floppy & CD is possible. Please refer to the documentation of your thinclient OS).
This contrib is held in the smecontribs repository, so the following commands will install on your smeserver.
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-thinclient
Go to the Thin Clients panel on Server Manager (within the Configuration section) and 'enable' etc. Usage (Thinclient usage).
Can work with and use smeserver-tftp-server
yum remove smeserver-thinclient
If you no longer need to do any pxe booting, please also remove smeserver-pxe
yum remove smeserver-pxe
And to remove all traces, you can
rm /home/e-smith/db/thinclient rm /etc/dhcpd.thinclient
The source for this contrib can be found in the smecontribs CVS on sourceforge.
