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 192.168.1.50 and is connect to the Router which has an address of 192.168.1.1. I am using a Netgear WNDR3300v1 wireless router. The webserver itself would likely have the IP 192.168.1.2 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 188.8.131.52. The modem is a cable modem, the brand is a motorola surfboard.
I am trying to configure dhcp server in linux 5.4 version on VMWare. DHCP is already installed in my machine but I am not able to start the service. Whenever I give service dhcpd start/restart, it gives message:
Starting Failed My configuration file is like this: [root@chaitu etc]# /etc/init.d/dhcpd start Starting dhcp: [FAILED] [root@chaitu etc]# vi dhcpd.conf ddns-update-style interim; ignore client-updates; .....
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.2 Server on a small desktop to use as a print server. During installation I marked the sSH, Print, and Samba services.I can ssh into it just fine and that's how I'm configuring it. I have a hp Deskjet F2210 connected to it.My end goal is to be able to use the scanner from my *buntu desktop and from a desktop running XP. All of these being connected via ethernet router.
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.
Not sure if this post belongs here, but here it is.
Host: Win server 2003 Guest: Ubuntu server
Host: IS able to ping guest. Firewall is OFF. NOT able to access guest (which is a web-server) at browser. Guest: NOT able to ping host. Running a web server, you can check the website: (pegajosa.com) is running under that virtual Linux server.
Problem: guest needs to access host's sql database and/or any resources.
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?"
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?
I am looking for a version of vmware that manages 2 severs at the same time and that mirrors them such that if one goes down we can still work on the second and of course it also works as a backup. Also, must work on a ubuntu server I have looked but there are so many version that I don't know which one is the best.
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?
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.
I am experiencing trouble configuring suPHP on my Ubuntu 8.04 web server. I've googled around quite a bit and the general consensus is that you first disable php5, then install the suphp module (I did that from the repo). I configured one of my Vhosts to use suPHP_UserGroup, but I get the following error:
Invalid command 'suPHP_UserGroup', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
I know the module is loaded, so I'm not sure why I'm getting this error. Is a Vhost the right place for this setting? Note that I installed from the repository instead of compiling from source if that makes any difference. Any insight on this issue? I can provide configuration files if need be.
Edit: After some extended googling, from what I understand I have to recompile suPHP using the 'paranoid' mode. Am I correct?
I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64bit and I'want to configure php mysql and lampp. Also the package mysql-ser is already installed, so if I install MYSQL GUI tools(Administrator, query browser..) from my synaptic package manager will it detect the mysql already installed ? Also tried configuring lampp by extracting it in my /opt directory and i started the server, which MySQL ll it detect the one which was previously installed otr the oin that in gui tools ?
Also think the current ubuntu repository does't have latest build of mysql GUI tools, so how the above mentioned things ll change if I try to download the individual package.
Oveall what I want is to configure Mysql GUI tools, Mysql workbench, xampp and php(For this I'm using Bluefish and Komposer). Please help me out so that I can leave windows for my Web-projects.
I am using ubuntu server 9.04 version and trying to configure a primary master DNS on my server as followed the ubuntu official documentation [URL]. The files named.conf.local, db.example.com & db.192 are almost same as the documentation. And I can restart DNS. But when I followed the troublshooting page to ping example.com
thomas@UServer:~$ ping -c 4 example.com PING example.com (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.047 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.067 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.058 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.061 ms
installed ubuntu 8.10 64bit on left over parts for file serving with windows 7, tried the sample config file that installed with it with no luck, then tried new config file, looking at the samba.org website and other peoples configurations i came up with this
[global] netbios name = NETBIOS_NAME workgroup = workgroup security = user
i am setting up a raid 1 on a netbook with the 30gb internal ssd as the primary drive and the 32gb sd card as the mirror. i am following the instructions here...
i have several working raid 1 arrays under my belt using usb sticks and want to try something more advanced and practical now.i have configured the internal ssd with no trouble, however, the 32gb sd card is not showing up in the installer. so i cannot configure it as the mirror. my 2gb sd cards show up when i run the installer why doesn't the 32gb sd card? if i boot into a session the primary ssd the 32gb card does show up mounted on the desktop. it shown as a dos partition.
I'm replacing an ancient Netware server with a new Ubuntu 8.04 box running samba and LDAP. I want to see if there's a way to get Samba to emulate the way permissions propagate through Netware. Namely, if I see a directory structure like this:
[User Cant See] --- [User Cant See] ------- User Can Edit.txt ------- User CANT Edit.txt
With Netware I can give permission to User to edit "User Can Edit.txt" and the permissions will propagate in reverse to allow User to see the two [User Cant See] directories and edit the text file. "User CANT Edit.txt" will still be invisible to User. This is very convenient as I can simply give user access to one file, they can navigate to it through the directory structure, and all files not explicitly given access to will still be invisible.
With Samba the only way I've been seeing to get this would be to explicitly give User access to both [User Cant See] directories, give him access to the "User Can Edit.txt" and remove any access to "User CANT Edit.txt" and every other file in the latter two nested directories.
i want to configure an Open LDAP server in Ubuntu....and also want it to connect to its clients, i have two machines for testing,one for client & one for server, i followed the tutorials on ubuntu documentation,but did not succeed in making either the client or the server,
I have installed Redmine according to the instructions on [url] according to the mod_cgi instructions which seem to be the easiest to follow.
The script installed in the installation directory was called 'dispatch.fcgi', and not parsing when I visited the page through the browser, just displaying the contents of the script. OK, so I installed the apache mod libapache2-mod-fastcgi using apt-get. Then 'a2enmod fcgid' followed by an apache restart.
Now when I visit the Redmine folder through the web browser I get 'Forbidden You don't have permission to access /redmine/dispatch.fcgi on this server.'
I checked to ensure www-data owns all files and has correct permissions to the folder. But this doesn't seem to work.
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.
It appears that my ISP is blocking port 80, so I can't set up a proper website on my home computer. I'd like to choose a different port to use (they block 443 also), and I'm not sure how to do this with Fedora (or any Linux flavor for that matter
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?
I have a problem configuring a RAID server under Ubuntu 9.10 (kernel 184.108.40.206) with mdadm (v220.127.116.11). First I had some hardware issues that finally got solved by using another motherboard. Now I am dealing with the software part.In order to ease things, I am trying to configure a RAID 5 with three partitions in one disk. I have two HD's, one IDE where the OS lies (recognized as sda), and another where I intend to build the RAID (recognized as sdb). In this second drive I have made three partitions (sdb1, sdb2 & sdb3) of the same size.I've already re-installed Ubuntu 9.10 a couple of times, zeroed the superblocks of the partitions, repartitioned the disks with different partition sizes (I am using 5 GB partitions to save time). I've gone through this process several times, and I really don't know how to move forward now. If RAID is about trust and reliability, this is exactly what I'm not able to get.
I'm trying to configure Postfix with a mail server that I programmed in C. The main.cf is set in this way :
Code: relayhost = [myMailServer.localhost] smtp_sasl_auth_enable = no smtp_use_tls = no disable_dns_lookups=yes smtp_never_send_ehlo = yes code....
I don't know why it doesn't receive response after HELO. In fact if I debug my mail server with gdb, I can see it sends a 250 response code. Moreover, I've tested my server both with traditional mail clients, as Thunderbird, and through telnet session and it works very well.
