I understand you are looking for a server-side solution, not a desktop one? You have the following options: Full virtualization Xen: general wiki. VirtualBox, as you mentioned, probably not as great for running on a server as it is for quick setup of dev environments on the desktop. Qemu, very mature, probably not as fast as Xen/Dom0 or bhyve. ...

Do you think 2 VMs on a SATA RAID 1 will allow a flawless symultanous usage of two somehow "desktop" virtual machines? It'll work fine though I'd need to understand your definition of 'flawless', and yes I would go with the HW RAID controller rather than just two disks to protect your data, make sure you get one that's on VMware's HCL so there'll be ...

Check if your "automatically created" rule at installation corresponds to the real port opening requierement of the application.

Azure OS gallery images for Linux are 29GB as you discovered (Windows OS gallery images are 127GB). There are a few tools and blog posts floating around describing methods to increase the OS disk volume size. I'm not going to recommend a tool, but I'll point to the Microsoft TechNet article published here which utilizes the PowerShell Update-AzureDisk ...

The short answer is: NO. At the very end, you should really consider: - Configure software RAID on Linux VMs in Azure . Definitely a good solution not only in case of need to extend the disk space, it also improves throughput.

Ok, this is an old post. but I want to share my experiences. I created a DD (raw) image file of 30gb (I used total commander, I took a big file and separated into files of 50Mb, until I reach 30GB size) I used OSFMount to mount that files as a drive (DD multiple files mount) Created a partition, formated, etc) I Created a virtual machine inside that mounted ...

I think there is no solution out-of-the-box for doing that for SQL Azure that you may configure between a virtual machine and SQL Azure instances that will route the request according to the IP/whatever. There is the Azure Traffic Manager service that you may use for that job, and best practices for that list some sentence about SQL Azure that basically is ...

In your case, i would use Migration tools that are included in Windows Server 2012 R2. It will migrate everything (shares, permissions, data...) and it's a full supported way to migrate from Windows Server 2003 to a newest operating system. Last but not least, it's very simple to use it. Basically the process will be the following : - Install a new Windows ...

This can be easily achieved by: Removing the IP:107 from the physical network card on the host Configuring the an External Hyper-V Switch and remove the check box from "Allow management operating system to share this network adapter" Add the IP:107 directly to the VM network card. I'd advice that you add a firewall if this is a real IP to protect your ...

The maximum disk size is typically limited by the amount of free space available on the datastore that holds the VM. Check the free space on the datastore. If it is full try to move the VM to another datastore (that has more space) or move other VMs that are on the same datastore to somewhere else to free up space.

You can switch to another console, log in to a new session, and then kill the ping process running in the first console. To switch consoles, just press Alt while pressing the left or right arrow keys. This take me through 6 different consoles.

As you correctly state, all Azure disk storage (except for temporary disks) are replicated 3 times in the same DC, and if you use geo replication than another 3 times in another DC, so realistically disk failure is an unlikely cause. There are a few reasons I could think of that might explain this: As HopelesNoob mention, it could be data corruption, if ...

The problem was due to the machine being cloned. Remote Desktop has a certificate associated with it. That certificate has the machine name within it. If the machine name in the certificate does not match the current machine name, Remote Desktop will not run. To solve this problem: Run the Certificate Manager ( certlm.msc ). Navigate to Remote Desktop -> ...

I raised a ticket with Microsoft and they confirmed that the SQL Express version number caused the problem. Their response was: the product team has confirmed that the "SQL Server 2014 SP1 Express on Windows Server 2012 R2" image was wrongly built by an internal builds (12.0.4193.9). I am not sure when they will have it fixed. As a workaround I ...

You want to add a line like: HWADDR=0A:0B:0C:0D:0E:0F in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ensXX (XX could be some number) using vi - say. then run /etc/init.d/network restart and type ip route and you should have an ip address and default gateway. To get the address you should add, you want to go to virtual machine settings -> hardware -> network ...

When you install a virtual machine, the system uses a slightly different configuration than the normal running configuration (e.g. the installation ISO may be mounted, or PXE boot may be configured). Once installation finishes, the installer is expected to reboot, and instead of rebooting, virt-install shuts down the VM. This is so that it can be ...

I want to sync files from serverA to serverB, but there's no direct connection between them, but I have serverC that can access both serverA and serverB. what worked for me is: on serverC: ssh user@serverA 'rsync -avP -e "ssh -ax user@serverC ssh " /source/files user@serverB:/des/tination'
