Any news on 'Stateless Linux' support?
I know that it was dead for a while there, but Redhat said that they had renewed interest in it in at least one article...
the idea of combining Xen and stateless linux sounds wonderfull.
Also what about setting it up so that you can do kerberos/ldap authentication support at install time?
Since with Fedora directory services you have a nice ldap server, and with stateless linux you have to have a ldap server anyways.. it doesn't seem that big of a jump to add ldap-nsswitch and kerberos support either!
And now that Lustre has started releasing their latest versions of their file system to public... I know that lustre doesn't currently have any secure authentication mechanism (it's NFSv3 style with all the trust in the host's uid stuff), but they want to have support for Kerberos via GSSAPI interface. Maybe Redhat can help them achieve this?
Or maybe OpenAFS? Maybe OCFS2?
My dream desktop setup for a company would be something like stateless linux based around a distributed network system (for home directories and user preferences) with kerberos authentication and ldap user accounts and such.
