Cool Solution - Run UCC Thinclients from USB-Stick
From Univention Wiki
This article describes briefly how you can set up a UCC Thinclient on a USB-Stick to run it apart from your own device.
- UCS DC Master with installed modul UCC
There are two possible ways to install the UCC on a USB-Stick. For the first solution it is necessary to build your own UCC local image according to the UCC-manual. Here you can set the parameter "device" with "hda", "sda", "auto" etc. The "auto" determine the first available device and therefore the second solution will be described.
Demount Flash from Thinclient
The UCC Boot-Menu does not provide a particular Boot-Parameter to select a Boot-Device and therefore it is necessary to demount the flash from the thinclient.
PXE-BOOT with Thinclient
Attach a USB-Stick on the thinclient and rollout the UCC image via PXE. The USB-Stick should be automatically detected. Choose "Image boot with update check / Initial installation" and "Repartitioning for installed systems" in the Univention-Management-Console. It is necessary to join the client one time but afterwards it is possible to use the USB-Stick on any other device.
