Server :: RHEL4.5 On Blade Server Not Booting After Install
Feb 11, 2010
We have done an installation on a blade server (HP) for RHEL4.5.
The server have an HP smart array 2200 controller and during installation it can see the controller and disks just fine.
The installation completes up to the point where the system needs to reboot , however after the reboot it does not start up again and get stuck at the message: "Trying to boot from drive c:"
We used the rescue option to mount the installation and cant find nythign wrong, even with the grub setup (except that it points to hd96 as its primary disk). we tried changing this to hd0 as well but still no luck.
After about 3 installations we are still not having any luck.
I need to install a webservice server coding in java & running in JBoss AS onto a blade server with Linux OS. Anybody knows what way to make use all the power of that blade? Or just install it as install on other system? In my point of view, there are two ways I could do: Implement a webservice "server" which accept the incoming request, and then deliver to its "client" webservice. So we would run one instance of server and many instance of client. Other way is just improve the current implementation, accept incoming request and try to use multi-thread as many as possible to maximum the performance of the blade server.
I was installed xming application on windows XP & Windows 7to access Linux server's GUI session and i was able to access it using root account but when ever iam trying to access GUI using normal account it is giving some error.I am testing this since it is a freeware.
When trying to install Debian 6.02 from a boot cd, the boot halts with the error message Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. In looking for a solution I see a great deal about this problem occurring after messy upgrades and the like, but when when booting from a cd downloaded right from the debian website.
I am developing a some application which running on rhel4 os. And its functions will handle via the web application. So we have provided an option to login (via vnc)to the server on web application when we need. so how we can enable vnc for a session (like 30 minit)? I'm using default vnc installation while installing rhel 4 nothing more installed by downloading. When I click session button on web page, I execute this command from my code
"service vncserver start"
then I can access server via vnc but when I click on disable button on web page, I execute this command from my code
I have created a website in php.wamp server is used to run the site.i created the database in phpmyadmin using mysql.These all were done in windowsXP.Now I want to import it into redhat linux system.how can I import database and its tables to rhel4 inorder to working the website properly
Perty self explanitory, I'm trying to boot up ubunto server edition 10.10 from a USB stick (pen drive) and it works fine until step 3 when it says "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-ROM was not put in the drive. If so you can insert it and try again
Try again to mount the CD-ROM? <Yes> <No>"
I don't have an installation cd-rom! I put the .iso file onto a memory stick, inserted it into my old computer (which i will turn into a server later) , restarted it and got past the first two slides and got this error? Do I have to put the iso on a cd-rom?
I tried booting up natty server on both a unetbootem usb flash drive install and on CD. I get the menu of options to install like Install Ubuntu Server, Install Ubuntu Server 9 expert install, Cloud, etc. Hitting install either the 1st or 2nd option leads to a black screen but not at a frozen state(I can still reboot with ctrl-alt-del). The server Im installing on is a ibm system-x rack with a single xeon and a raid5 already setup to be used for installation. Now Im back to using lucid 10.04.2 which I might consider upgrading through Update Manager since I cant get natty to boot correctly with a working display. Anyone having similar problems on Natty server stable release?Also as I post this, I dont see a ubuntu server prefix, maybe it should be added?
Migrated bunch of RHEL4 servers from one enclosure to another. Could not connect to SAN as adapter state was showing "DEAD". These are Proliant BL460 and BL680 Blades with native RHEL QLA2300 and QLA2XXX drivers. It only happended to RHEL4 servers and no issue found with RHEL5.x servers.
I will be relocating to a permanent residence sometime in the next year or two. I've recently begun thinking about the best way to implement a home-based network. It occurred to me that the most elegant solution might be the use of VM technology to eliminate as much hardware and wiring as possible.My thinking is this: Install a multi-core system and configure it to run several VMs, one each for a firewall, a caching proxy server, a mail server, a web server. Additionally, I would like to run 2-4 VMs as remote (RDP)workstations, using diskless workstations to boot the VMs over powerline ethernet.The latest powerline technology (available later this year) will allow multiple devices on a residential circuit operating at near gigabit speed, just like legacy wired networks.
In theory, the above would allow me to consolidate everything but the disklessworkstations on a single server and eliminate all wired (and wireless) connections except the broadband connection to the Internet and the cabling to the nearest power outlets. It appears technically possible, but I'm not sure about the various virtual connections among VMs. In theory, each VM should be able to communicate with the other as if it was on the same network via the server data bus, but what about setting up firewall zones? Any internal I/O bandwidth bottlenecks? Any other potential "gotchas", caveats, issues? (Other than the obvious requirement of having enough CPU and RAM).Any thoughts or observations welcome, especially if they are from real world experience in a VM environment. BTW--in case you're wondering why I'm posting here, it's because I run Debian on all my workstations/servers (running VirtualBox as a VM for Windows XP on one workstation).
For some reason when I install RHEL4 the video craps out on me. I go through the main part of the install, choose packages, and start the install. After reboot it shows up like a channel you don't get on bunny ears. (messed up image.) I used to be able to CTRL+ALT+F6 to drop to a terminal, but that doesn't work anymore. It is hanging on something and I don't know what.
My X windows wasn't deployed in the installation at the beginning , but i need to install it now , my system is RHEL4 , i am not connected to the internet , so i will not be able to use up2date , so I need to use rpm instead.
just one month before i upgraded my pc to Later configuration but then i can't install rhel4 on my pc. i have heard there is a few upgrades (Updates) will help this issue, is that true? then which update i need to use for install rhel4 successfully on my pc? or is there any third part utilities for solve this issue? here i am adding my pc's spec
AMD Athlon 2.6 Asus M2N68-AM 2 GB DDR II Nvidia 8400Graphics Samsung HDD
Ive created a bootable RHEL4 USB flashdrive so that I can do my installs from rather than using CDDVD's. The USB key boots fine to the point where it asks me to select a drive that contains the ISO images, but it doesn't show me the USB drive to select, only my 2 hard drives sda1 and sdb.
We currently use HP xw9400's with the following spec as shown in dmidecode:
I know that the xw9400's have the nvidia mcp55 pro chip on the motherboard that handles USB, keyboard, mouse and other peripheral traffic, so am wondering if this could be what the problem is? Like there may some code that i need to tell the machine to use this or something?
I have installed a linux server in my office to run 16 machines. Its main use will be a internal mail server but will be also running websites.
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 server x64 and have got apache running.
I am looking for the simplest more robust solution for smtp, pop3 and imap. I have only ever used qmail before and found it a pain to configure and its getting old so I though I should probably try something new. I have not much experience with running pop3 or imap on linux so would love a suggestion on that.
I am using RHEL4.4 ES with mozilla firefox 184.108.40.206. I am unable to load flash player. The instruction says locate the installation directory of mozilla. That I am unable to find. There is no such directory as /usr/lib/mozilla<version no> in my system. But /usr/lib/firefox<version no> directory is present. I tried by copying the lib.so file in the plugin directory of firefox, but it is not working. Please can some body guide me which version of flash player I should install and hoe to install.
I need to create a Redhat or CentOS server but I am not really sure where to begin. I'm not sure what network booting and PXE booting is. Are they both the same thing, or are they different? I want to setup one server and two client machines to connect to my server. I would like to be able to load a kickstart CD on my server and have the two client machines boot off that servers kickstart. My concern is, will they boot off the network or do they have to be configured to use PXE booting?
I am running ubuntu server 10.10. It was running fine until I tried installing a second hdd to back up my desktop (xp) and laptop (win7). I was following this guide: [URL]. I formatted it first as ext3 then realised I need fat32 so reformatted as vfat. When I went to mount the drive I got a warning that started:
Code: gksu:2400 Gtk-warning........ I rebooted using: Code: shutdown -r now
But when it restarted it stopped at a blank screen with a flashing 'underscore' in the top left corner. Where to go from here? Do I need to do a fresh install?
HP Proliant Server will not boot to O.S. Upon power-up system performs POST and finally starts looking for bootable device...3 are listed CD-ROM, ?, SCSI. And then falls into a loop here. No errors that I recognize (I'm newbie to LINUX). Server has 6 SCSI drives and using the SMART START CD, are testing ok. I've broken down box to minimum hardware requirements and was even trying to boot in Safe Mode, if there is even such a thing for Linux.
I got an online centos server and it suddenly stopped rebooting. I taught there is some issue with filesystems and I went into centos recovery mode and did filesystem cleanup so I did fsck and e2fsck .
How do I re-mount the disk in centos recovery mode so it boots up normally? I am unable to mount them normally as its giving me some diskless error or am I doing something wrong?
I am a Java developer for a small company that develops web based solutions to our clients. My Linux skill levels are somewhere between newbie and experienced.The company I'm working for has hosted server that is self managed due to the nature of the software that we develop. The server is located in a data center and the host is fully responsible for maintaining the hardware.Recently the motherboard of the server failed and had to be replaced, this happened promptly, however when the server was booted up I was notified that our Linux is giving problems starting up.I was given access to the server via a Raritan lara (KVM-over-IP).
This enabled me to configure the network again.A few things I've noticed with this however. The old network interface was named eth0 while after the swap the new one is named eth1. There is a failure message for bringing up the NIC named eth0 (old non-existing one).Further after the re-configuring of the NIC (IP, subnet etc) I could connect to the server via SSH, our Apache was running without any visible issues (didn't notice anything in the Apache erroe log). The web frontend on JBoss was running good but I kept getting the failure to start eth0 message on startup. As well through the KVM device you never saw the login prompt, it just hangs on some point (once it was after saying httpd2 started up successfully and another after CRON).I have no idea of where to go look for this issue and I can't even say for sure that it's after the motherboard issue as I could use SSH without a problem after the NIC configuration as I used to connect to the server.I've further looked at dmseg but that also doesn't give any indication for me.
I've set up a ubuntu server 8.04 with ntp-server. At boot time the ntp service is started, butCode:ntpq -pdelivers:No association ID's returned.I've set up the ntp the way to be able above my private network to use this as reference.If i restart ntp everything is fine.First i thought that the problem is that dhcp is started after ntp, but after changing the start-order in the runlevels this enigma remains.
I'm working on a (minecraft) server on some old hardware and started by installing a fresh copy of ubuntu server 11.04. After that I installed the minimal xfce system with the guide at [URL] . I've tried every trick I could find on to disable it from starting up, but it appears every time! Wierdly enough, it doesnt display any standard looking login screen, but instead displays this old looking login screen with a debian logo. Not sure how to get a screen shot of it. All I want is it to boot into a command line!
