General :: Create And Configure A Virtual SAN Disk And Work On It With Virtual Machines?
Jun 29, 2010
I would like to configure and SAN disk. But I do not have a physical SAN disk. Is it possible to create and configure a Virtual SAN disk and work on it with virtual machines?I have around 400GB of space in my Laptop.
I'm working on a script. fter it has installed and removed packages, I need to configure a ton of settings. In GNOME, I understand that those settings are kept in "/home/user/.gconf". Can I create a virtual machine and configure the system through the GUI to my liking and then dump all of the settings, so that I can load them on another machine? Is it as simple as copying the directories?
I'm considering setting up a virtual machine running Windows, with Ubuntu 10.10 as the host OS, for those cases where I have a Windows-only program.I understand that using a VM will lose some performance, but are there other limitations to what the OS in a virtual machine can do compared to "running on bare metal"?
Can a VM play games, like Dragon Age Origins or Civilization V? (Possibly with poorer framerates and/or lower resolution, but does it play at all?) Can a VM rip DVD/Blue-ray using AnyDVD or similar Windows program? Can a VM handle new hardware that requires dedicated drivers, but the drivers are only available for the OS running inside the VM? (Ex. graphics card, digital camera, card reader for smart card authentication.) Is it possible to say anything about "general limitations" of VMs, or is this wholly dependent on the specific VM?
I am Working On Citrix Xen Server.I have Installed two Virtual Machines(Centos 5.3).Now Apache is Configured and its running on the First VM.Can I Set up a Apache Clustering On those VM?.My Aim is "If Apache On the First VM Down,then Apache on Second VM Should Automatically Start".Is there Any Tutorial to Setup Apache Clustering On Virtual machines.
I am wondering, whether this is possible. Can I change processor architecture type in virtualization software for different virtual machines? Like I want to do some compilation on Intel itanium and I have physically intel xeon CPU.
I setup a private network from virtual machines and one of the machines is the DHCP server for the group. I want to specify a next-server for the DHCP server but I'm having trouble connecting to any of the machines that I lease IPs to. I'm just trying to do a simple ping/ssh to 10.0.0.252 (a machine with a lease) but it doesn't seem to respond. I'm assuming I need to be able to connect to my next-server but maybe I'm wrong.
I am new to networking and trying to setup my own local area network using virtual box machines. I have installed BIND 9.7.3 using yum in Fedora (dns server) and created all necessary .conf and zone fil es. I am successfully able to resolve domain names on this host machine (dns server). for example dig @dns.domain.lan client1.domain.lan correctly resolves domain name.
I'm looking for virtual machine software that supports dual monitors on a Linux guest with a Windows 7 host.VirtualBox supports dual monitors only for Windows guests. VMware Player was extremely slow, so I gave up. I'm not sure it supports dual monitors, anyway. Can anyone recommend a product for what I want to do?
Right now I am using some software to emulate a null modem serial cable on my Windows computer connected to itself. For development purposes I need to have a null modem connection to a linux computer from a windows host. Is there any method of doing this virtually?
I am in verse to test "Multicast Packet filtering".I want to setup Virtual Machines to be servers with bind option set to a multicast group address of 22.214.171.124.Then I want to configure the client VM, connecting to the multicast group address and setting the TTL as needed.
I installed openSUSE 11.2 and works great. The only problem I have is that I can use the XEN virtual machines only as a root. If I login as a normal user and open the Virtial Machine Manager I receive the following message:Virtial Machince Manager Connection Failure:Unable to open a connection to the Xen hypervisor/daemon.
Verify that: - A Xen host kernel was booted - The Xen service has been started
I am attempting to put some Virtual Machines on my Fedora13 box. Using KVM it just doesn't want to work quickly.... Using the v.14 LiveCD to try and install an image onto the virtual machine... took over 15 mins to get to a login screen, then I gave up attempting to log in after 5 mins from clicking the login button. I assigned the virtual box to have 1024Mb RAM and access to both CPU.
I then decided to sack it off and try and install VirtualBox... this has been a disaster. I know it's due to the fact that it wont run alongside KVM, and I've disabled KVM (as far as I am aware) - but it's still FAILING on using DKMS (Or whatever it's called - not got the error open at the mo). basically.. am I doing something wrong causing the system to run so ridiculously slowly, and how am I being thick for VirtualBox to fail to install?
I have an HP Compaq nx6125 laptop, which has an AMD Turion 64 2200MHz processor, running Windows 7 Ultimate. I have installed the VMware Workstation 6.5.2 [full] trial and am attempting to install Fedora 11 on a virtual machine.
I understand that the Turion processor is a 64 bit processor, so I downloaded the Fedora 11 x86_64 DVD iso image.
First I have to create a VMware virtual machine (VM) and choose a version for it. If I choose a version that is any of the 64 bit options (for example, "Other Linux 2.6.x kernel 64-bit", since there are specific options for RHEL but not for Fedora), I get an error message the moment I try to power on the VM and start the install, saying "The buslogic SCSI adapter is not supported for 64-bit guests in this release [...]". Then the VM just shuts down.
I guess this laptop does have a SCSI bus, but my disks are IDE and as far as I can see (System Information) the SCSI bus is not used (?).
On the other hand, if the VM I create is any of the 32-bit option versions, I get what seems to be just a warning, saying that I'm running a 64-bit guest OS (Fedora 11) on a virtual machine configured to run a 32-bit OS, and suggesting I change this to ensure the 64-bit guest OS will function correctly. What would be the risks / downsides of forcing the install anyways?
I will also ask for help on the VMware side, too, and it's not my intention to turn this into a VMware discussion, but I'm just wondering if anybody on the forum has worked with this combination (VMware 6.5.2 and Fedora 11 running within it, preferrable on an HP Compaq 6125 running Windows 7 Ultimate) ? If so, I'd really appreciate some feedback / pointers.
I used to work a lot with Linux back in the days of RH5.2, and it's been a while, plus I'm new to the virtual machine world, so bear with me here.
I only have one IP adress to access the server. But the server will host 3 web sites and I want them to be hosted in a vm. So, I want to setup 3 virtual machines to do it and use apache reverse proxy and vhosts to redirect the domain requested to the right vm. Now. I understand the concept, but I am not an expert to set that up....
I have an openSUSE 11.3 server. So, I have to set a virtual machine server, is that right? I have been told that I cannot do it with VMware server in oS 11.3. Can I use virtualbox for this? I only have to install virtual box? Is there a special version to install? Once the virtual machine server is install, is it trivial to create 3 vm? So, I want to know wich are the steps I have to take to set that up.
I cant get my linux server ( centos5 ) with virtualbox run 2 virtual machines in headless mode. Only one machine gets network connection. Can anyone tell me how to make 2 or more virtual machines work with 1 eth-port in headless mode using virtualbox ?
I created two Linux virtual machines. I created a same directory in both of them as following . /ocfs/clusterware I need to make this directory shared between them I mean , if create file in the directory in the first VM , I must see it from the second VM.
I'm currently working on a project for university that requires communication, via an RS232 link between a piece of hardware (I have designed and am currently testing) and some software(which need testing).
I was hoping to have my hardware finished by now so I could get on with testing the software over Easter.
The hardware does not work yet but I would still like to test the software.
Does any one know if there a way to make a virtual serial port that I could put data on and read data off while my program accesses it as a regular serial port so I can check my code?
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and am happy to give any more information on request.
I want to setup some virtual machines that will use the same architecture and debian-version as my host-machine. I have started to setup VMs with a netinstall-image and now want to add more software using apt-get. As most of the software I will use is already installed on my host-machine I wonder if there is any way to configure apt in such a way that it will not download packages from the internet, but will use the packages from my host-machine to save network-traffic. Is there a good may to populate VMs using the debs from the host-machine.
give a reference to the definition of 'isolated network' as used in the Virtual Machine Manager? I have virtual machines that I do not want to have access to the host, I thought 'isolated network' did this but the VM's can ping the host. If (probably) I am wrong, how can I create an network that can not see anything else but what is also on the same network? The host and the isolated network are 192. and 172. The virtual bridge is not connected (or so it says) to any physical device.
I have OpenSuse 11.3 with VirtualBox on it, and with installed Oracle DB (on host OS).. but, sometimes this computer is disconnected, without it's gateway (adsl router)... and in that case, I cannot ping from virtual OS to host OS, or another virtual OS. I tried to use 'Host only' option within VirtualBox, but it doesn't work. What should I do? It seems that virtual machines requires some kind of gateway/router, but since machine is disconnected, it's not working.. how could I fix it?
I have VMware player on my laptop. I have three working virtual machines, Android, Windows Vista, and Kubuntu, and three that something went wrong don't work. How do I get rid of these space cloggers? Just go to Home folder/VMware and jus delete the folders of useless machines? Or is there a way to do it properly? Or am I stuck with these forever? And how do I rename a virtual machine?
First off I am new to Linux and fairly new to working in Networking and Server config's. I have been using Windows for years and have been learning Windows Server 2003 as I have a Technet account, I can get any MS software. I would like to learn Linux and use this as my Server environment. My project looks like this: I have a Quad core, 8gb machine. I want to install a distro of Linux (server or desktop) and run Virtual Machines on it.
My perferred way would be to use Virtual Box but I could use VMware products if that was better. I would like to run WS2003, WS2008, Linux Distro and anything else that will run in a VM. I can figure out that part pretty easily. I want the Linux host machine to run all these VM's and access and use them on my MAC remotely. I have done some research on ESXi as well, but I don't think my Hardware is going to support that. My exact PC spec's are:
AMD x4 940 8gb DDR2 Gigabyte MA770-UD3 2 Velicoraptor Drives GTX 260 I will be dual booting this machine on one of the Raptors for gaming as well.
