I am assuming you are talking to me with a NIS/ NFS problem on our
Yes, NIS is fixed on homeserver and all four LTSP servers get their
authentication from it. I have made some progress on fixing my prblems
since i write two days ago. I figured out that:
1.) my authentication if working fine
2.) Root accounts works on all machines,
3.) all user accounts work when loggin into homeserver locally (e.g not a
NIS or a funcationality problem with the home directories)
4.) if i log in as a user in command line on any one of the LTSP servers
(ctrl+alt+f1 at login) i can log in but not start X, (gives an error that
has to do with fonts)
5.) if I try modfy that users homedirectory (mkkdir skunk) i get a
permission denied error.
Conclusion: Somehow my NFS /home mounts are mounting Read Only (though i
am not aware of any changes that have been made to either the exports file
(it is consistant with a back up from a year ago):
or the FSTAB with is the way think it should be on the homeserver:
"LABEL=/home1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2"
and on the LTSP server:
"10.1.1.10:/home /home nfs defaults 0 0"
(where 10.1.1.10 is the IP of the homeserver)
Does any one know any other place of file that could have been changed
that would cause my nfs mount /home to mount as read only.
