I've been asked to set up a student lab with about 20 linux machines (ubuntu 18.04.4).

I'm starting this without any experience except that I was a Unix system admin 20 years ago, for about 10 years.

The students won't save any files to their machines.  Every time the machine reboots it will get a clean fresh instance of the machine.  If they want to save anything, they'll save it to a USB memory stick.

Thanks for any helpful suggestions or links.

(I have submitted a parallel question about how to set up the share on the server.)
