To get information about IPMI (and change it's settings) from a physically installed OS, you could use ipmitool(1) and numerous software like it. Mostly it requires root privileges to run.

You should be able to find it through: $ cat /etc/xensource-inventory DEFAULT_SR_PHYSDEVS='dev/sda3' It should be using lvm. Depending on the version and the state of the volumes, you may want to run: # pvscan PV /dev/sdb1 VG sas01 lvm2 [558.37 GiB / 228.37 GiB free] PV /dev/sda5 VG kvm01-vg lvm2 [237.63 GiB / 0 free] Total: 2 [796.00 ...

Typically that is called monitoring and is something you don't do from the server itself (dead servers have typically great difficulty announcing their own deaths) but from second host. Many monitoring systems have agents that can be installed on the servers that are being monitored and which can be called to attempt a service restart automatically as ...

Tracing route to vmsp2013.xdomain.local [192.168.1.177] over a maximum of 255 hops: As our good friend Inigo says "I do not think it means what you think it means." That is not saying that it took over 255 hops. Rather, it's stating that tracert will not report on any more than 255 hops. In the output, you can clearly see that the host is reachable ...

Well, 10 VM means you will have 10 VM to manage (update, monitor, ...) so in terms of resource utilization and cost it is better to consolidate. On the other hand, all sites on 1 VM means they will all share the same resources, the same OS & LAMP versions and you can have issues when 1 site needs different versions or becomes incompatible with the new ...

This is normal behavior of XenServer. All the metadata for the image (VDI) is in the Xapi database files, not in the image files themselves. Note that the UUIDs of images are also gone, so no matter if you've imported diskless VMs back from old hosts or recreated them from scratch, there's no way to Xapi to find which VDI belongs to which VM. Same goes for ...

Azure provides a friendly cloud DNS name so you'll never need to get it directly from the machine, it should be something like availiblitysetname.cloudapp.net pinging this should give you the IP or if you really need the actual ip you can always use powershell to get the vIP Get-AzureVM -Name "thevmname" -ServiceName "theservicename" | Get-AzureEndpoint | ...

This worked for me Running krb5_newrealm inside a VM can take a long time to complete (after showing "Loading random data" message). You can use the following hack to quicken things a bit. $ sudo aptitude install rng-tools -y $ sudo rngd -r /dev/urandom -o /dev/random # don't do this in production! posted at ...
