For Azure alert - we can setup log query based alerts. Run the query and then from there choose the option to configure alerts. the below link talks about pulling data for all servers. http://winplat.in/azure/azure-log-query-to-find-disk-space-on-virtual-machine/ you can insert another line to filter for server | where Computer contains "*SERVERNAME*&...

To quote from the documentation, All resources in a VNet can communicate outbound to the internet, by default. If you don't want internet access, you need to adjust your security policies.

The problem is: once I am inside the VM instance I can no longer access the data from my bucket Maybe you have Access Control Lists set in some of your bucket folders. You can use your account in the VM by gcloud auth login.

Yes, you can transfer a disk between machines. For an OS disk you would need to delete the VM currently using it (but preserve the disk) and create a new VM from an existing disk as demonstrated here. For a data disk you can detach it from the old VM and attach it to the new. VM's can't share OS disks. It is possible to share a data disk using Azure Shared ...

Libvirt provides a nss module which you can configure on the host, which uses the net-dhcp-leases information to provide host resolution https://libvirt.org/nss.html

Yes, it is. If you're not getting this, please take a look at firewall rules. It's a virtual interface, but it's still an interface and supposed to work following networks and TCP/IP standards. Edit: About firewall rules, if you're using Linux, you're supposed to confirm that iptables allows routing and ping to and from both networks and interfaces. If you'...

I suspect your problem is with hugepages, which you've explicitly asked KVM to use. -mem-path /dev/hugepages \ Do you actually have enough hugepages to give the VM the entire 4GB of RAM? I think you probably don't. Check with: # grep Huge /proc/meminfo AnonHugePages: 1325056 kB ShmemHugePages: 0 kB FileHugePages: 0 kB ...

UPDATED ANSWER: as shown in the comments and the updated question, the specific issue was related to a 2 GB hardware memory reservation due to the specific machine type. Switching to an i440fx machine type solved the issue. ORIGINAL ANSWER (left here because it can help others with similar issues on 32 bit Windows): Try increasing the user-space memory ...

Ok, time to dig further. Unfortunately svchost.exe is a generic container process for lots of system services, any one of them could have triggered the shutdown; that doesn't really say much about the actual root cause. A possible source could be the Hyper-V guest components, possibly as a response to instructions from the host to shut down the VM (for ...

That's a planned shutdown initiated by an operating system process. Perhaps an update has been installed automatically? That would have triggered a reboot (if the system is configured to automatically install updates); 3 AM is also the default reboot time when auto installing updates, which points even more in this direction. You can check the history of ...

The missing piece was UDP 1434. Once I've opened that, everything worked fine. Bottom line: both TCP 1433 and UDP 1434 have to be opened in both Azure > Networking and VM Firewall

I would never use the UI to perform this kind of task. The UI is an abstraction layer and any wrong assumption, caused by some little misunderstanding or some functional change/improvement in the UI, can lead to data loss. The kind of operation that you are describing should be performed from the ESXi shell. That way you do see the files at play and you have ...

Yeah - I have been there as well. You cannot have more than one VPN I think in the same time. The routing table will get messy and that depends on configuration of VPN server itself. Is that full or split tunnel, which network CIDR the customer use, etc. From the IT Managment software ConnectWise is not bad as you pay monthly.

A couple of things I do as a freelance consultant: If your clients approve, use a remote control solution that doesn't require VPN connectivity, such as TeamViewer, LogMeIn, etc. If you have the resources, build yourself a dedicated virtual machine for each client using VMware Workstation or the like. Granted, this doesn't scale well past a few clients but ...

If the guest used basic passwd database and not another different backend, you can mount the virtual disk and follow the various guides on the net to create users manually. For example: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/153225/what-steps-to-add-a-user-to-a-system-without-using-useradd-adduser and then: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/81240/...

If the VMs are connected to the same virtual network, nothing else is required for them to talk to each other; they are by definition already connected (unless you have NSGs blocking traffic between them); this also applies to different subnets in the same VNet. If the VMs are connected to different VNets, you need to set up a virtual network peering to ...

UGHHHH finally wacked on the keyboard and got it working. The traverse across drives does not like a cifs share so that worked 50% but the NFS share works 100%. seems that permissions are not set for the graphics, but now I have the nas sharing the web page so the server is now running 100% across a network from a raid 5 shadow drive. I feel that I have ...

Posting this answer as community wiki as the question portrayed could be wide and not get the definitive answer. Feel free to expand it. As for: Does something like this work ? Yes. In fact there are multiple ways to configure your cluster. I encourage you to visit sites below for an overview of Kubernetes components and architecture: Kubernetes.io: Docs:...

Deciding if/when to make a failover or server redundancy is a matter dependent on several factors: resources, type of target service, type of backup you have, your uptime/downtime/recovery time target. The most simple scenario of all is if you have a backup that supports instant recovery. This can cover most general use situations. You're up in 2 minutes and ...

No, this message is not related. This warning message is reporting that the gust OS cannot access the PMU counters and should not be of any concern. The messages do not affect the functionality or performance of the operating system or the server and can be safely ignored.

What I ended up doing what re-mounting the datastore under another name to the datastores and deleting the disk and re-adding it using existing disk pointing to the newly re-added datastore file. Seems like it's some kind of networking issue; the unmounted datastore is not seeing the NFS via nfs.domain.local:/mnt/array/drive, but I was able to re-add it ...

You can use -l option with number of available extents: sudo lvextend -l+10239 /dev/vg_webserver/lv_root citation from man lvextend: -l|--extents [+]Number[PERCENT] Specifies the new size of the LV in logical extents. The --size and --extents options are alternate methods of specifying size. The total number of physical extents used will be greater ...

In general, no, unless you meet one of two very specific constraints. Either: The device needs to be exposed read-only (this MUST be at the device level, not the filesystem level) to all the VMs, and MUST NOT be written to from anywhere at runtime. or: The volume must be formatted using a cluster-aware filesystem, and all VMs must be part of the cluster (...

I was able to obtain connectivity to the internet from inside my virtual box machine with the following setup: Host: Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 Guest: Linux debian 4.19.0-12 In my host machine I have the Mullvad VPN app installed and activated. I'm using a ethernet connection on my mac. Virtual box network type is: Nat, with the Adapter type of Intel PRO/1000 ...

If you don’t run cluster-aware file system inside your VMs you’ll simply destroy your shred volume immediately after first metadata update. Full clarification story is here: https://forums.starwindsoftware.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1392

you cannot set a specific time for a restart. If you choose AUoptions 4 - "Auto download and schedule the install" it will install patches at the set time and day of the week (there is no possibility to choose day of the month either...) Then it depends on how long the installation will take and server will just reboot if the update requires it. ...
