[K12OSN] More oddities with K12LTSP 6.0 rc2

I have done a standard install ltsp 6 rc2, setting host name to LTSP-2 using setting DNS and default gateway. on first boot sendmail took about 2 min to start and smclient about a 1 min. everything seem OK workstations booted up and I was able to log on with the one account I had created.

Investigating sendmail I noted that the /etc/hosts had some strange entries at the beginning something like: ...8 loclhost.localdomain, this was repeated. There was no and LTSP-2 had an IP of 208.67.(can't remember the rest, think it ended in 40)-this was similar to the DNS serevers( that I entered at install.

I edited hosts file as below    LTSP-2    localhost.localdomain    localhost    ws001.ltsp    ws001    ws002.ltsp    ws002
etc to    ws253.ltsp    ws253    server.ltsp    server

rebooted the server and sendmail loaded without any problems

but now when I try to log on with a user the home folder can't be found.

I ran ltspadmin and it reported that

/etc/hosts /etc/hosts.allow /etc/exports
were not configured

checking the files they all seemed ok, but I ran the configuration anyway which double entered everything in those files, but ltspadmin was happy. Rebooted the server some complaints about the double entries in exports, and still no home folders.

I have edited out the double entries and now ltspadmin is again reporting that those files are not configured. I have not tried it again since as I am now at home. I guess it may be just one of those odd installation glitches, or may be that odd IP address has got in some config file and editing it out of hosts has screwed things up? As there is no data on there yet I may just do a reinstall, but if anyone can shed any light as to what may have gone wrong or has an easy fix?
