Re: [K12OSN] Re: [Ltsp-discuss] New LTSP + openMosix How-To



Short answer as long as the shutdown is clean and teh server in question is not serving the actuall data filesor home node then migrating process will never know it is gone. as to a dirty shutdown on teh process needing said node will notice the issue.

Not so correct, with DFSA/MFS you can use the nodes to add hardrive space. Of course this will make the nodes a bit harder to drop out of ht ecluster for obvious reasons. you can use NFS to do teh same thing but in the long run MFS works better

These would make nice nodes. If you r just going to throw them out throw them my way :), I know serval organiztions that could really use them.
