linbo.iso is still not in var/linbo so i assume it must be generated
I successfully ran import_workstations and then used the shell script to
generate the iso
was there a line in your /etc/linuxmuster/workstations
bevore you ran import_workstations
I asked for the contents of that file in one of my last mails.
Could you please send them.
I checked rsyncd.secrets and it shows the entry LINBO:password
However I still cannot access the imagaing tab of linbo GUI with this
password, or the default password LINBO
in the linbo GUI, when you press the imaging Tab, ther appear no Dots
when you type in the password: thats normal.
So type it in “blind” and press Return.
How does linbo authenticate? Is the password written to the iso locally
when generating or does it require a connection to the server?
usually it is stored withn the Client so linbo can work offline.
But i dont know if it is stored in the iso too.
I guess so, but i dont know.
The iso does need connection to the server to fetch its start.conf.
If locally then where can i edit it?
i dont know that.
When i boot from the iso the linbo GUI shows offline and no IP address
which would explain why the password fails if it authenticates with the
But this does not make sense to me because there would be instances
where you need imaging tools when offline after building a PC, whether
booting into linbo from local hard disk or USB
if you boot from harddisk you can login offline: i do that very often.
All imaging features are there when you boot offlien except “upload to
You can create images and sync the Cleint (if there is an image in the
PXE boot does get an ip address but the linbo gui does not load.
which IP Adress?
It might be that you have another DHCP in your net: and thats why there
is “no operatingsystem fount”.
Where can i learn more about Linbo please? I would like to understand
how it works better.
there is a technical documentation, but i fear its written in German.
I will try to resolve your bootingproblems.
Please tell us about your setup.
Do you have virtualization?
Are you trying to boot an virtual Client or a real one?
Tell us about the connection between the Client and the server, if you
boot a real Client.
Would you like to have a working virtual environment with
I can provide that (its aroung 13GB in Size)
