Correct, you would lose all your data. The disk that was in use by the encrypted VM that be used anywhere else. You can, however, remove the encryption password from the encrypted VM, make a copy of the disk and add it to another machine, then add an encryption password in the new VM.

You can use cgroups in an LXC container, as they are namespaced, but OpenVZ is very old technology and I highly doubt you will find a way to make it work. If you can, you should start converting over from OpenVZ to LXC as the former is likely to be abandoned sooner or later. It's LXC that all those OpenVZ devs have been building.

Use Powershell to Remove Network Boot Devices from the Boot Order You can use PowerShell to strip the Network BootTypes from the VMs boot order. Extract the Current Boot Order Using Powershell you can use this command to extract the current boot order: $old_boot_order = Get-VMFirmware -VMName testvm -ComputerName MyHyperVHost ` | ...

FYI. Here is where i messed up. In the dom0 ./interfaces, i initialize the physical interface as manual. I initialize the bridge as static and add the physical interface to it. The bridge was created with a static IP assigned - the same one the domU claimed with, a different virtual mac address though. Long story short, tcpdump showed both the bridge ...

virt-v2v doesn't cover hyper-v. What you need is virt-p2v and treat the original hyper-v based VM as a physical machine.

Yes, that is possible. You just need to use a tool like virt-v2v to make the image conversion. Additionally, if you google "convert hyper-v to rhel kvm" you'll find many tutorials.

Regarding your concerns about PXE The implementation of PXE in a corporate environment may raise concerns about security. This document shows why these concerns are mostly unfounded. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21247020

Docker can run on any hypervisor, AFAIK. I'm running Docker on an Ubuntu VM running on my XenServers at home. I also have an Ubuntu VM on my laptop running Docker within Virtualbox. Also, if you're interested in Docker, I would look at CoreOS, which offers Docker features in a clustered form. As far as choosing a hypervisor to work with, pick the one your ...

Yes it is possible, you should add firewall rules to Open vSwitch like; ovs-ofctl add-flow xenbr0 "dl_src={mac-address} priority=39000 dl_type=0x0800 nw_dst={ip-address} idle_timeout=65000 action=normal" ovs-ofctl add-flow xenbr0 "dl_src={mac-address} priority=38000 dl_type=0x0800 nw_src=ANY idle_timeout=65000 action=drop" You put your servers that needs ...

When you use an rdp connection, you still need to use an account to log in. That account can be restricted to stop access to files.

Xen HVM is the only type of Xen that will support a different OS. KVM will run anything of course. As for which to choose, that's offtopic on SF.net

vSwap is calculated as the difference between the amount of ram you assign to a container subtracted from the amount of burst memory you assign it. A positive number creates vSwap to account for the differemce. As far as iopts on a physical drive as a result of virtual memory manipulation I don't have any hard data but I'd think the answer is probably no, or ...

The latter. For normal workloads there is nothing you can only do with one or another. If you come from OpenVZ I would suggest KVM since it's architecture is more similar to what you know. Xen is a completely different concept.

There is no such thing as subnetting in IPv6, every subnet is /64. Do not attempt to subnet a /64, IPv6-mechanisms like SLAAC will wreck your scheme. From your description I understand that you have to bridge the guest interfaces to the host interface, so they are in the same subnet as the host. If, however, the host is a router for the guests, then ...

Sounds like you're running into this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2897997 You need to schedule and run a garbage collection job to free up no-longer-needed blocks. If you haven't done that, do it. If you still have issues, see the support article linked above. See this article for info on how to properly set up dedupe jobs: ...

tl;dr: There is a difference but generally so small that it's not worth worrying about. For the most part, containers can use the full CPU and RAM of the host system. There is a little bit of CPU overhead to actually run a container but it's small enough that it's generally considered to be zero. RAM usage is in the same boat. The docker server does require ...

Hyper-V Server has all of the features needed to run a VM cluster. With that said, Hyper-V Server is essentially a Server Core installation, with all the other server roles stripped out. Since you're getting Datacenter licenses anyway, you can just install Server Core instead. Both are functionally identical (except that you have the option of installing ...

For everyone having issues with brand new R720 there are two options you need to disable in adapter settings to get it working properly with virtual machines. Do the following to resolve the slow network access issues on Dell R720 with Hyper-V installed. I faced the same performance issues while access via RDP and it was resolved by doing some ...

I would say you have a lot more to consider than just hard drives. You are intending to transfer to a completely different virtualization package, which will take much more than a days worth of work. Theoretically you would need to: - Transcribe the VM configurations (more than likely by hand) from Microsoft's spec to QEmu's spec. - Convert the VHD images ...

In a NAT setup, your VM shares a private network with the host machine only. This is similar to a network with one gateway server and all workstations reaching the internet through that - the workstations are not reachable from the internet then, either. You can make single ports of your VM available by using inbound NAT rules on your host system. # ...

For Bridge networking to work between host and VM, you have assign same IP address range as that of Host 192.168.0.x Change this in your KVM bridge network settings, to make it work.

The only solution I found to this problem was to simply robocopy the data off to another disk (NAS etc.) and reformat the drive in question - then finally copy the data back. Quite a frustration given I am dealing with 100GBs of data but such as life. Potentially a command line that would of resolved the freespace issue Start-DedupJob E: –Type ...

OpenStack does indeed allow you to overcommit CPU resources, but the amount that you can overcommit can be limited by local configuration. By default the ratio is 16:1, meaning you can run a maximum of 16 virtual CPU cores for every physical CPU core across all running VMs. Since most workloads are not very CPU-intensive, overcommitting CPU usually makes ...

As far as I can tell you've tried to set up a host-only subnet of 192.168.56.0/24, but you've set both the host and the guest IP to be 192.168.56.1. They'll need to be on different IPs but the same range, e.g. 192.168.56.1 and 192.168.56.2. Additionally, I'm not sure what eth0 is for on the guest. It would be useful to know: Whether each guest interface ...
