Ubuntu server 12.10 HyperV networking issue
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 19, 2012
I am by no means a linux "expert" so please be gentle with me.
I am having issues with networking in hyper-v after moving the vhd to another host and recreating the Virtual Machine. In fact, this has happened on 2 separate instances. It worked on the original host and i have others running successfully.
All appears to be ok except i cannot ping another ip or remotely ping / connect to it.
eth0 is configured as a static address.
lshw -C network produces

I dont see anything in any logs that would indicate any problems.
I am really stuck and would appreciate any help or pointers anyone can offer me. I do
How to expand the drive space in ubuntu server 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 16, 2012
Hi, recently i downloaded the ubuntu 12.04 server and installed it on a hyper v VM. I allocated 20 GB for the virtual machine and started installtion, during the installtion it asked for amount of hardrive space to be allocated and i gave 50%, just thought later we could expand it, but now when i tried to see the disk space it only shows only the details of the allocated disk space but not the other 10 gb free space.
Here is the link to the screenshot
Please suggest a way to increase the disk space by allocating the other 10 gb to the disk.
SATA drive not working correctly after failed Ubuntu Server 12.04 install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 3, 2013
I'm not entirely sure if LinuxQuestions' hardware section deals in these sorts of problems, but here goes.
I've rebuilt an old scrap computer as a project over the weekend, and as of a few hours ago I've had some problems with the hard drive. I was trying to do a clean encrypted LVM installation of Ubuntu Server 12.04 (no, i do NOT trust my roommates with it) on it when an error message showed telling me there was a problem one of the packages dealing with the actual LVM formatting. Not thinking much of it, I restarted to retry the installation whilst formatting the drive in standard LVM, which worked before... to find that my hard drive (a Western Digital WD5000JJAS SATA drive) was no longer being detected correctly by the BIOS.
On the Award BIOS being run on the system, both the AHCI and IDE modes for the drive hang for about a minute when polling the hardware, and even then they won't correctly display the name of the drive (instead of showing None or WDC WD5000AAJS blahblahetcet
ubuntu server edition
location: linux.com - date: August 30, 2010
so i installed server addition to my extra hard drive. i used my sisters computer running ubuntu 10.04 to try to use it to store files.
it did not come up on the network.
when i boot into server mode it gives me a unix interface, and as such i can do anything in there. but im wondering is there more to it than that and how do i use it/get it to hook up to the network. im sure theres no Graphical Interface, as it doesnt need one, but i dont seem to have it working properly. do i have to install cloud as well?
also will windows users be able to access the server?
Thanks, general info on how to use it is what im looking for!
Ubuntu Desktop vs. Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2006
Can someone please tell me what the difference is between Ubuntu Desktop iso and Ubuntu Server iso?
I know that Ubuntu server does not install a graphical user interface, but was wondering if "server features" can be added to the Ubuntu Desktop installation? For example, can you install Ubuntu desktop and then add web and dns services to it?
Just a bit confused on that point...I want to use Ubuntu as my "desktop operating system", but would also like to be able to explore its server-related features.
Installing GUI on Ubuntu Server Xubuntu Desktop Looping Startup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2013
I have an Ubuntu Server that I use for multiple things. I have tried multiple times to install a GUI on it. I recently installed xubuntu-desktop and I got the same result from every other time, a looping startup. When I start my computer, it goes through its startup, showing things like "Starting [program names here] ... [OK]
" it does this and then loads what seems to be a startup of a gui. Black screen, mouse appears (but I cannot move it) and then the screen changes color in the background to a color similar to Ubuntu Purple. It waits a couple seconds, then goes black again. The only way I can get to another tty is by pressing escape rapidly followed by Ctrl+Alt+F1 or F2...I login and run command startx, then the screen goes black and a white rectangle, just shy of the size of a notecard, appears. Then nothing. No system response what-so-ever. No Ctrl+Alt+F# or Ctrl+Alt+Del response. Not even "sysreq+RIESUB" works. Only way to reset is by removing power. I a
Ubuntu Server and Windows question. SOLVED
location: linux.com - date: February 10, 2011
Hey everyone, I have a question. I am currently a college student and Microsoft IT guy. I had a question regarding Ubuntu server security vs windows. I recently added a gui to my ubuntu server because I don't know what I am doing otherwise, lol.
But while I was searching for information on ubuntu server I saw a lot of people saying how guis are normally considered a security risk, and that a lot of people use something like webmin or whatever else to remotely log in with a gui.
So my question is this, how does a gui as a security risk compare to using a windows server which is all gui based ? Is it the same? Is there something with linux guis that makes them less safe then windows? Or is it safer then windows but still a risk?
Please help with my confusion, lol.
Moving from Nas4free to ubuntu server 12.04 newbie questions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2013
I set up a 3tb drive with nas4free and played around with that a bit. Its formatted as UFS. After more research I decided I wanted to be on ubuntu server. I got ubuntu server up and running on another hard drive.. and I was wondering how I go about importing my ufs drive. If possible. Or if I have to back up all my data and format it to a different format. Once that's done I'll need help setting up samba shares.
As of right now I have server 12.04, transmission, samba, subsonic and webmin installed.
NFS: Ubuntu (server) and Mac OS X (clients)
- date: July 17, 2006
I'm a Mac user who was recently given a PC, which I plan to basically use as a headless server and [email protected]
client (as opposed to having the PowerMac continue to do double duty as both a desktop and a server). One of its server tasks I want it to perform is network storage for the two Macs' automated backups. Unfortunately, the Macs see that the PC has available NFS shares but won't let me mount them using the Finder's connect to server. I get an error message saying that the username and password was incorrect, even though it never asks me for a username or password.
PC server: Ubuntu Server 6.06 (kernel version 2.6.15-25-server), wired connection to the router
PowerMac G4: Mac OS X 10.3.9, wired connection to the router
PowerBook G4: Mac OS X 10.3.9, wireless connection to the router
I have full control of all of the computers involved.
