I think you might be looking in the wrong place. An ltsp server exports NFS to the thin clients so they can boot their OS. If you want to export /home from your old server, you will need to set it up and make sure the new server is mounting it. To me it looks like you aren't even exporting /home. If you want to authenticate from the old server as well (so you won't have to add all your users to the new system again, you need to have it using NIS or LDAP or samba, and set the new server to authenticate users from there, assuming they aren't local (to the server) users (like root).

The second I delivered to another place a couple of weeks ago, finally. This site already have one LTSP from before and I was planing on replacing it. Using it as an fileserver for homes folders.
