Ubuntu Servers :: Configuring 10.10 Server In VMware ?

Feb 17, 2011

I have attempted to set up ubuntu server 10.10 on my home network. I only have one computer and access to windows is a must for me, so what I have been doing is installing the server via VMware as a virtual server. Now, I have been able to successfully set up a server that works on the LAN, but for some reason I have been unable to get access to the server via the external ip address.

I will list all known information about my network, host computer and VMware.

I'm currently using VMware Workstation. For the virtual machine I have installed, I have allocated 500 GB of space to a partition on my 2 TB external hard drive. The network is currently set to NAT, but I would much prefer to Bridge the network so that the guest would be assigned a unique LAN address.

The host computer is a laptop. It is connected to the internet through a wireless router. I can successfully host a teamspeak server that accepts incoming traffic from the internet. The operating system that is installed is Windows Vista.

The network is set up as follows:

The host's LAN address is and is connect to the Router which has an address of I am using a Netgear WNDR3300v1 wireless router. The webserver itself would likely have the IP in the circumstance that the network was bridged for the virtual machine. So the WAN Interface would be the modem my company has provided which has assiged the external IP The modem is a cable modem, the brand is a motorola surfboard.

Ubuntu Servers :: VMWare Server Does Not Start After Reboot

Nov 30, 2010

Ok so I followed the instructions here [url] and this works great for the install however if the machine is rebooted the VMWare server refuses to start back up stating that it knows that its installed but it was not installed with the right installer.

This is on a Dell Server I can't remember the model right now but its got Dual PIII in it. I'm running Ubuntu Server 32bit 10.10 on the box as well. Thank you in advance for your assistance with this. Once I get this first server figured out I'll get my other one fired back up.

General :: Vmware Server 2.0.2 Installation On 12 - Making Sure Services For VMware Server Are Stopped

May 19, 2010

I have installed fc12 on my core2due machine, and I have installed the vmware server on it, its rpm is installed successfully with out any error, after that a message is displayed

The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully. You can decide to remove this software from your system at any time by invoking the following command: "rpm -e VMware-server".

Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl".

I tried this command and find the this message

[Akram@localhost Downloads]$ su -c "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl" Password: Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.4.2", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3" anyway? [no] yes

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/src/linux/include]

Now it asks me in last lines that "What is the location of Directory of C header files that match your running kernal?"

General :: How Do I Change VMWare 1.x Server's Guest Boot Order

Dec 23, 2010

I have 4 VMs on a Linux host, call them A, B, C, D running on Z. I really don't care when A and B come up, but I would like to make sure that D comes up before C.I believe that in VMWare 2.x it's possible to change the boot order. Is this possible in 1.x as well? Is this done in /etc/vmware/vm-list? I see that there are a number of VMs listed there, including some that have long since been deleted.

I completed the installation of VMWare Server 2.0.2 onto a CentOS 5.4 64-bit distribution. There is a VMware virtual machine file on the server in question, and I want to activate it through the application console.

I did not see anything readily apparent that would facilitate the importing of the virtual machine file. Does anyone have a procedure that can accomplish this task?

CentOS 5 Server :: Building VMWare Virtual Machines From CentOS Mail Servers?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a few mail servers, a mail log server and a web server running on Centos 5. Now I have a task: to avoid accidental crashes on the production servers while installing updates, my boss asked me to do clones (these clones will all be VMware virtual machines) of the servers (EXCLUDING the actual e-mails and log contents) and then to run those clones on VMWare Server. This way, first I will install and test updates on the clones and - if they will be running without crashes - I will apply the updates on the real production servers themselves.

I have already installed VMWare Server 2.0 I have a few questions: How do I build the virtual machines to exclude the actual mail files and mail logs? Can I use VMware Converter for this purpose, or do I have to use another program? How do I actually do this cloning? Is there a tutorial on how to do this?

Debian :: Mount Sshfs At Startup - Get Mount For UserA To Happen On Boot

Mar 18, 2011

I am struggling with getting an sshfs mount mounted on system boot. I have a script that mounts the sshfs for "userA". When userA runs the script all is well - user A can access the remote filesystem, root user can't see it as expected. The basic command is: sshfs userA@remote host:/home/userA /home/userA/mountdir -p 21212 -o password_stdin < passwordfile. I can prepend the sshfs command in the script with su - userA -c and when I run this script logged in as root all is well, userA has access and all is well. If I then put this script in /etc/init.d and reference it properly in the rc. directories the mount doesn't happen. If I prepend the sshfs command with sudo, same thing. Logged in as root I can run the script and UserA has access. Run the script in /etc/init.d during startup and the mount doesn't happen. Echoing text to a log file shows that the script is being executed but no mount happens.

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows DHCP Server - Multiple Boot Servers ?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm curious if anybody can shed some light for me in this department. We're in a large environment with a Windows DHCP Server. We have been tinkering with LTSP on Edubuntu as thin and fat clients. It works great, but right now we just have 1 server handling the lab, which works fine unless we want to expand, which may be very possible.

These are the instructions I received:
Login to your windows server and load the DHCP configuration screen
Create a DHCP reservation for the MAC address you obtained
Add the configuration options below to enable the machine to boot from the LTSP server
017 Root Path: /opt/ltsp/i386
066 Boot Server Host Name: <ip address>
067 Bootfile Name: ltsp/arch/pxelinux.0 # Specify CPU architecture in place of 'arch', for instance 'i386'

From: [url]

I'm curious, what if I want to have multiple Ubuntu servers on the network that I want to have bootable? For example, let's say I have 3 labs, and 3 servers. Server A to Lab A, Server B to Lab B, and Server C to Lab C. I want all C's computers to boot to C, and B to B, A to A, etc.

1 - How would I add multiple entries on the Windows DHCP Server to allow all 3 (A B C) servers to boot?

2 - How would I be able to isolate the clients so ONLY Lab A clients boot to Server A, etc?

General :: Multiple Servers Or One Server With Multiple VMWare?

Feb 7, 2011

I'm looking at setting up a couple automated systems: Here are a few examples:

* Internal accounting system to download and process emails
* Public web server to visit

I could put each system on its own separate box -- for example, it's generally good practice to separate anything that external users have access to (such as a webserver) from internal processes such as accounting. Now, rather than dishing out the money for two separate servers, could I get away with just installing new instances of VMWare on the same box for each system?

To give you an idea, these are not large scale computationally sensitive systems. The accounting one is simply downloading and tallying emails, and the latter is just a webserver with maybe 5 hits per day on a good day. I could definitely pick up a new box for say $50, but I wanted to know the general practice of using VMWare on the same box versus two separate boxes.

Ubuntu Servers :: VMWare Guest - VFS Unable To Mount

Jul 21, 2010

I've built a customized 2.6.32 kernel over Ubuntu 10.04 server (physically) -note: it is the same version that comes with the livecd-. Then I added my stuff, cloned the disk, applied it to 3 different hardware boxes and it works perfectly. But when I put that image on a VMWare Workstation 7.1 or VirtualBox machine it doesn't load... I get a "kernel panic: not syncing vfs unable to mount root fs on unknown-block 0,0". So, I've created a new vm, I've installed ubuntu and it booted without a problem.

I ran my kernel patching as I did on the physical machine, but when I rebooted with the new kernel, I got the same error. So, the problem seems to be something in the customized kernel, but specifically going over virualized copies. By the way - In a previous version, specifically Debian 5 with kernel 2.6.18, I did the same stuff about a year ago and the machine loads perfectly in any virtualized environment. Then, the only thing left to think about my problem is that some grub parameter or kernel driver or something is messing up with booting. The customization of the kernel is only the patching for IMQ stuff.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server (no GUI) Hangs On Boot

Apr 30, 2010

I just installed 10.04 i386 Server(release version)last night on an older IBM workstation (sorry, for the life of me can't remember model and I'm at work now); P4 2.4, 512Mb RAM, generic Intel graphics. This was a base install (aside from OpenSSH) with no window mgr. The HDD was wiped during the install and GRUB2 wrote to the MBR.

The install went smoothly, and on the soft reboot after the install I got a shell and was able to login, etc. and even SSH in.I unplugged the machine, moved it, booted, and got a cursor in the upper-left of the screen for about 3 seconds, and then the monitor would enter power save mode. (I tried 2 different models of monitor). While the cursor was on the screen the HDD access LED was blinking with activity, but that would stop right before the screen would enter standby. Tried a few reboots with the same result.

I'm thinking this is not a video driver issue (as similar threads have suggested),because the splash screen for the install disc renders properly and on the first successful boot the shell rendered appropriately at a high resolution.I can hold down shift to enter the GRUB2 menu, which also renders at a higher-than-text resolution and is defaulted / displays the correct options.

Most other threads with a similar yet non-video issue centered around GRUB2 issues with a dual-boot machine, which mine is not.I did go in via rescue mode (off the install CD -- the rescue option of the GRUB menu has the same result as a standard boot), and checked that my grub.cfg was correct, and I ran grub-install to no avail, and also ran grub-mkconfig on a subsequent boot to no avail, yet the grub.cfg generated appeared identical to the original generated during install.

The partition/file system is default layout.

20 Gb IDE (/dev/sda)
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2
/dev/sda2 Ext


I'd be happy to give more info if someone has a troubleshooting direction in which to go.

Ubuntu Servers :: Server Hangs On Boot

Jul 27, 2010

I'm trying to track down a problem with my server. Basically, I can get it to boot with a LiveCD and do rescue stuff with it - I just can no longer get it to boot. I've been slowly working my way through all of the error messages that come up during the boot process, and knocking them off one by one. Right now, they're fairly minor.

I'm trying to find out what the big issue is by looking at the logs. The last thing that it does is bring up apache2, says [OK] and then hangs. I've tried to do ls -lustR on /var/log to see what's the last log touched, and that's syslog or boot.log, but the last entry says something along the lines of Apache2 is up and running.

Where else should I look?

Networking :: Bonded NICs At Host OS - Ubuntu Server - Bridged To Virtual OS - UServ - In VMware Server

Jul 19, 2009

Just something that struck me while working on our virtual servers today.

I have bonded 3 NICs at the host in Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS. They are using mode 0 for Round-robin. Point is to increase the speed/performance of all the servers, but mainly the fileserver. The fileserver is a virtual server running Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS on VMware Server 2.0.

1) I noticed the NIC in the slave OS reported link speed as 1000 and Im unable to change it as the NIC (virtual one) doesnt support it. Does this not really matter, as the NIC doesnt exist, and it will run at higher speeds anyway? Or do I have to remove the bond on the host, bridge all 3 interfaces from the host to the slave OS, and then make a bond in the slave OS?

2) While at it, does mode 0 only increase performance on data being sent from the host or does it also increase the available incoming bandwidth?

Ubuntu Servers :: Eliminate Anything Unnecessary From Server Box And Set It Up To Boot Into RAM?

I'd like to eliminate anything unnecessary from my Ubuntu Server box (on a Compact Flash IDE drive) and set it up to boot into RAM. I've seen ways of getting a live CD to do this and seen other distributions that are designed to do this, but since I'm familiar with Ubuntu, I'd like to be able to get rid of my swap space and make the existing installation boot to RAM.

Ubuntu Servers :: Server 10.04, One Interface Not Brought Up On Boot?

Jan 7, 2011

I'm having an odd problem with Server 10.04. I have two interfaces but only one interface is brought up on boot - and it's not always the same interface. Usually eth0 fails and eth1 comes up fine, but sometimes eth1 fails and eth0 comes up. I'm using the same config that was previously used on Server 8.04, but never had this problem on 8.04.


# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback[code]....

Once the system has booted, if I run /etc/init.d/networking restart, then both interfaces come up fine. However, having read that this is now an upstart, I also tried service networking restart, but get:

restart: Unknown instance:
Don't know if that's significant or not.

Cannot find a single problem with networking reported in log files, other than bound services failing to start as a result of the interface not being up (dansguardian, squid, dhcp which are all bound to eth0, and therefore fail when eth0 doesn't come up. And when eth1 doesn't come up, the only process that fails to run is clamav-freshclam). Although at one point I did see something about interfaces being renamed which seemed a little odd.

I could just have networking restarted automatically once booted, but this obviously isn't a solution to whatever is causing the problem. There is quite a bit running on the server: Samba/LDAP domain controller with roaming profiles, squid & dansguardian with LDAP auth, postfix & dovecot with LDAP auth, mailscanner, dhcp & ddns, strict iptables policy with nat... so I'm not sure if any of those could have any bearing on interfaces?

Fedora Servers :: VMware Reports Wrong Space Available

Jan 13, 2009

I've a physical machine with FC9 running vmware server 1.0.6 with 2 virtual machines. Each virtual machine is also running FC9. Everything was running smoothly until one day, one virtual machine stop. I've checked /var/log/messages of that machine and it says:

"no space left on device"
I try to create a file
touch dd
and the answer is the same.

The odd thing about all this is that the machine (both virtual and physical) have enough space left. This is the space available reported by df -h. Physical machine

[root@halwifi hotspot]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
228G 38G 179G 18% /
/dev/sda1 190M 19M 162M 11% /boot
tmpfs 1010M 96K 1010M 1% /dev/shm
and the Virtual Machine

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
8.7G 3.6G 4.7G 44% /
/dev/sda1 190M 19M 162M 11% /boot
tmpfs 379M 0 379M 0% /dev/shm

Every time I try to do something, I always get: "no space left on device".
