No, this is not a good idea. If you want to run VMware and have RAID protection, you need a supported hardware RAID solution. Please see: Software RAID underneath ESXi datastore

Since all Linux distributions run the same (yup, it's a bit simplified) Linux kernel and differ only in userland software, it's pretty easy to simulate a different distribution environment - by just installing that userland software and pretending it's another distribution. Being specific, installing CentOS container inside Ubuntu OS will mean that you will ...

Yes it's possible to do this. The technology you are looking for is called Name Based Virtual Hosting.

WSUS is definitely what you are looking for. It can do everything your looking for in terms of updates including requiring you to approve updates and allowing different update groups. You'll need to look for a different solution for the imaging however products such as veeam or other backup solutions for virtual systems will usually be able to do this. ...

While WSUS is certainly a good solution for the servers that you manage at your site, it's going to be complicated/difficult to make that work for your clients that have servers at their own sites, unless you deploy WSUS at their sites. You might be better served by investing in an MSP product that's more suited to your needs, such as Kaseya VSA - ...

Yes. VMWare shares the CPUs/cores by default. When an ESXi host runs multiple virtual machines, it allocates to each virtual machine a share of the physical resources. With the default resource allocation settings, all virtual machines associated with the same host receive an equal share of CPU per virtual CPU. This means that a single-processor virtual ...

You are limiting incoming connection to port 80 only. Client browsers can use a port number ranging from 1024 and 65536 for their outgoing connection. You need to change your security group settings to allow incoming connections from Any port: allow-http source: any source port: any dest: any dest port: 80 service: tcp/80 action: allow ...

Just solved a situation similar to this on a CentOS7 box. Turns out that the 'nmtui' command dialog box silently added a '/32' to the end of our static IP Address. That changed the Netmask to 255.255.255.255 and the broadcast IP to the same IP as the interface. This resulted in some very unusual ARP behaviour & caused many dropped connections. Run an ...

I would absolutely saying you need to go to a config management solution, because I would consider that the professional solution. My preferred one is Ansible because its pretty easy to learn and setup, and requires only ssh access to servers. Ansible has a git module that can clone a repo to what ever directory you require, and you can copy a private key ...

+1 on VM reboots when adding disks to running hosts... Added 22 disks to 22 hosts about half rebooted or entered a stuck state and had to be forcibly rebooted. uname -a 3.10.0-123.13.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Dec 18 14:09:13 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux waagent --version WALinuxAgent-2.0.14 running on centos Openlogic CentOS 7.1 Wanted to add an ...

There are excellent V2V Converters like ones StarWind and 5nine do but in your case you only need to a) export and b) import VM. See link below. Overview of exporting and importing a virtual machine (TechNet)

Trying to have apache pass SSL to another server serving SSL is more trouble than it's worth. You're better off having it handled at the main apache server. It's just easier that way. Here's an example of what I've done for one of my five subdomains. I've taken out any extra configuration options that aren't relevant to your question. <VirtualHost ...

If you have assigned Instance Level Public IP Address(ILPIP or earlier known as PIP) to your instance then you won't be able to restrict the inbound traffic unless you configure that particular instance's OS level firewall or create NSG because the sole purpose of ILPIP is to receive traffic from external sources on dynamic ports meaning anyone can send data ...
