CentOS 5 :: Virtualization - Server And Desktop ?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a customer who has (currently) three servers running Centos 5.5, one running Windoze 2003 and around thirty or so workstations running XP Pro.

I've just been reading about RedHat's product - RHEVD and was wondering of anyone knows if this product (or anything similar) is aavailable under CentOS.

Basically what we need to be able to do is to virtualize the XP workstations so that the staff can connect via a browser (inside the office or off-site - or for that matter anywhere) and be presented with a standard desktop.

I know I can achieve this using Citrix XenDesktop or VMWare View but I would prefer to use a FOSS solution if one exists. Having said that it has to be robust and well past Beta

CentOS 5 Server :: Centos 5.4 And Xen 3.4.2 Full Virtualization Not Working

Mar 31, 2010

I installed the latest version of Centos 5.4.It came with Xen version 3.0.2 I think.I am running it on a Dell R510. It supports hardware virtualization.I was able to virtualize Windows XP and Windows 2003 server on it by selecting the install from DVD option.I was having problems trying to get a PCI DekTek card seen by the virtualized Windows domains so I tried to upgrade XEN to 3.4.2.I used the repos available from Gitmo and it went easy.

The only problem is now that when I try to create a "New virtual host" it only allows me to use HTTP, FTP option and not the iso or DVD option. They are greyed out. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and might know a work around for the Xen 3.4.2 problem. Perhaps a better location for the kernel or something.

CentOS 5 Server :: Implement Virtualization Using A Remote Connection?

Jun 26, 2009

The word on all lips are "virtualization" so I decided to smell this flavor.
I have a machine running CentOS 5.3 64bit and I have unlimited access to this machine, but I don't want to reach it physically.
Is it possible to install and maintain a virtual medium using ssh or other remote connection?
When I installed the OS I have selected the packets regarding the virtualization, but now from where can I start?
Is somewhere a guide for doing this?

CentOS 5 Server :: Salvage Machine After Running "yum Removegroup Virtualization"?

Jun 11, 2009

I had just put the last touch on a snort, mysql, apache, barnyard, base isntall to CentOs 5.3. I noticed that ifconfig displayed an odd virtual nic, and I wanted as little running on this machine as possible. I don't remember specifying that I wanted XEN installed. And on the old lowend machine that is powering this server, Virtualization was the last thing I wanted running on it. I did a google, discovered that the way to remove XEN completely (yum uninstall xen' only removed 'xen' but still, oddly, xen was running after a reboot. Talk about perplexing.

Ubuntu :: Bare Metal Virtualization For Desktop?

Jul 22, 2011

I would like to try putting some kind of free "bare metal" visualization for desktop useage on my laptop. I've been googling about the possibilities, but still I'm not sure which would actually work in my case. I've seen VMWare ESXi which looks ok, but unfortunatelly it is meant for servers and I can't have ESXI and Sphere client on same laptop. Another candidate I found is KVM, but as much I've seen it requires VTx VTd support from hardware, which my laptop can't provide. The same requirements must be met for Citrix Xen Client, which is meant for desktop virtualizations, but because of lack of VTx and VTd, can't be used in my case. Is there any other possibility? Currently I'm using VirtualBox and VMWare player for virtualization purposes, but I would like to pull out more performance out of it, and a heavy OS on top of another heavy OS just isn't the best way.

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 - Install Solaris 10 At Xen With Full Virtualization - Hvm

Sep 25, 2009

I have centos 5.3 with text console onl, not X server, now I try install solaris 10 at xen with full virtualization (hvm)

Now I have some like "zombie domain"

How I can to kill this? If I reboot the server it doesn't help.

No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual page and on [url] Domain installation does not appear to have been successful. If it was, you can restart your domain by running 'virsh start solhvm123'; otherwise, please restart your installation.

Do you know what this a problem?

If I chagne --vnc to --sdl and run below command on my desktop to appear windows and disappear for 1-3 seconds, virt-install -n solekhvm3 --ram 1024 --hvm --disk path=/dev/vol1/solek --sdl --cdrom /dev/cdrom --os-variant solaris10 --force

CentOS 5 :: Virtualization: Dual Boot Xen And Ordinary Kernel?

Sep 1, 2010

If you select "support virtualization" during install, you get the xen kernel installed.

Some things do not work with this kernel (e.g. nVidia drivers). So my question is whether it is possible to install both kernels (xen and ordinary) and select between them with grub at boot time?

I did try this a while ago, by first installing with xen and then manualy adding the ordinary kernel, but the ordinary kernel failed to boot (for reasons I don't now recall - sorry). Clearly, there must be differences in the "virtualization" build other than the kernel.

The alternative, if I want to play with virtualization, would be to have two entirely separate installations, but this seems like a waste of space when surely almost everything must be identical?

I can't find anything in the Centos Xen documentation about this.

Before I try again I would just like to check if anyone actually knows if this is possible, or if not why not?

Or can it be done with KVM?

Server :: Two Servers Versus Virtualization

Jun 2, 2011

I am leading a project at work that will require at least one new server. There will be a development server and a production server, which changes from development will be rolled onto. Unfortunately, I am more of a web programmer than a Linux guru, and I really don't know whether or not it is better to have two physical servers or two virtual servers on one machine. I don't think there will be a huge toll on the machine, as there will probably be around 1000 total users and less than 100 on at any given time. We are also able to spend quite a bit on the server, so I'm sure one could handle it, but I just wanted to check and see what the advantages and disadvantages would be in this situation.

OpenSUSE :: A Good Free Virtualization Software Package That Work On OpenSuse With The KDE Desktop?

Oct 4, 2010

Can anyone suggest a good free Virtualization Software Package that work on OpenSuse with the KDE Desktop, as I need to use Windows for some applications that have not got a Linux equivelant, Namely Reserch In Motions BlackBerry Desktop Manager and the drivers for my Printer and Scanner, so I would also need something with USB pass through. Or if there isn't any free virtualization software that will dowat I want that's free then something that is not expensive that's paid for. I like the look of Parallels Desktop 4 for Windows & Linux but I'm not sure if I would be able to justify paying �54.99 for the ammount of use that it will get?

CentOS 5 :: Remote Desktop Server On Centos

Jul 29, 2010

I'm currently in the last steps of migrating a CentOS mailserver to the x64 version.However, under the old 32 bit version, I was using XRDP to access the Centos box from my Windows boxes.However I can't seem to find the XRDP package in the standard repos so this is prompting me to look at possible alternatives (XRDP was incompatible with my windows 7 box anyway soI had to RDP to another server of ours running 2003 to RDP into the mailserver which was far from ideal).Basically, I'd like to be able to seamlessly access the Centos box with a standard RDP client.

I know VNC Server/Clients would be an option but RDP gives me the freedom of any windows box being able to access the server on the same adress/port without installing software on any windows box I encounter.Are there any viable alternatives to XRDP ?There's no "add-on" to VNC server that could enable it to accept RDP connections ?

CentOS 5 :: Accessing Windows Desktop And Drives From Centos And Vice Versa?

Oct 3, 2009

i find this is an issue which might be tiresome for everyone except for those experts. Esp. for the computers which are dual booting(both windows xp and centos installed in the same computer), that when we are in CentOS we need to switch onto windows immediately. and vice versa. i see this is possible only by shutting down the centos/windows and then restarting onto the other OS.

Can anyone tell me the the solution to work simultaneously both xp and centos without the need of shutting down and restarting There maybe or may not be the solution...but i find the pleasure to know if there is for example, remote desktop connection in windows xp, is there any solution, we can work on windows via centos or vice versa ( in the same machine),

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Installation - Centos 5.2 On HP Rp5700 Desktop \ Begins The Boot Process Up To Discovering The PCI Stuff And Just Locks Up, No Response?

Mar 28, 2009

I am trying to install CentOS 5.2 on an HP rp5700 desktop unit. These units were originally sold as a Point of Sales unit I believe, but HP also markets it as a high life cycle server for SMB market.I tried to load CentOS on this unit via CD (created from downloaded ISO of course). It presents the initial CentOS banner page and waits for the obligatory "enter" to continue. It begins the boot process up to discovering the PCI stuff and just locks up, no response. I have to power down to restart.Since this does not even get to the point of installing. I am at a loss what to do next. Has anyone had a similar issue with other PCs.The boot stops at the lineACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)

OpenSUSE :: Xen 4.1 - Hardware Virtualization With 11.4

May 6, 2011

I would like to know or to retrieve a guide with all the steps to follow to do a hardware virtualization in a 1.5 TB-HDD in which i want to have 2 VM with VT-d (Hardware virtualization) one VM with Opensuse 11.4 x64 and the other with Windows 7 x64. The fact is that I want to run both VM's at same time and I need aid and tips with Xen 4.1 because all the Tutorials and guides that I've seen are from non updated versions (3.0, 2.2...). Do I need 3 partitions to virtualize by hardware (one for the host and the other 2 for the VM's)?? Which host OS do you recommend me?

Is it hard to configure Xen and anyway, how to do it? Basically I'm a novice use of linux and my doubts come up refering to Xen configuration, installation and Hardware virtualization selection ( Graphic Card Virtualization above all) because if I have to touch the BIOS settings tell me how, or the application sets it by itself? What I want to virtualize is a 7 Professional 64bits with most of the Disk space (at least 1 TB)for gaming&multimedia, and Opensuse 11.4 64bits. I'll use suse to work & test software.

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H
Processor: Intel Socket 1155 - Intel Core I5 2400 3.1Ghz
OpenSuse 11.4 (default DVD kernel version)
RAM memory Kingston ValueRAM 8 GB DDR3 1333 in modules of 2.
Hard drive 3.5 SATA - Samsung HD154UI 1.5TB SATA2 32MB MAESTRO.

I'm not searching for software virtualization/ full virtualization / paravirtualization. I'm searching for vt-x, vt-d & Graphic card optimizing with windows emulated environment. And do you recommend me to use another Xen version or software to achieve this goal?
