Ubuntu (server): No network interface
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2013
I got a VPS from weloveservers.net yesterday, and it cannot ping any IP address, and I cannot use the apt-get and wget commands. After trying to figure out the problem for a while, I found that the network interfaces eth0 and eth1 are not configured. To make matters worse, bash cannot find the 'auto' command. I looked online and found that you mey need to edit /etc/network/interfaces or something, but there is an error saying that "Permission is denied" when I try entering '/etc/network/interfaces' into the remote console. I have full root access. It seems that the VPS provider installed something other than default Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. For all I know, I may have Ubuntu Server installed, or some crazy, unheard-of OS. So is there a way to configure the eth0/eth1 network interface properly? If you're wondering how I can access the remote console, I think that the control panel program directly communicates with the server.
EDIT: The precise version of the OS is Ubuntu 12.04.1
Ubuntu server to 'pull' backups from XP machineshowto?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 19, 2013
I am looking for pointers on a) a program that runs on ubuntu server, or b) a how-to of scripts/descriptions to pull and sync files on XP, W7 machines as backups. I am looking for something easy to configure and use. My intention is to run ubuntu server with two identical disks as storage volumes, one mirroring the other. I plan on using mdadm to configure and manage the two disks as RAID1.
I would like a program to run on the server that will periodically check the windoz machines on the local network and essentially synch the files.
Ideally, I'd like the files on the server to be automatically compressed, and when I restore them, have them automatically decompressed.
I'd also like to look at the backups on the server and open them if necessary, I plan on adding a light weight GUI to the server config (or even a web based broswer (Webmin?)
I've looked at PCBackup (tried it and resulted in strange behavior - I don't trust it), and amanda - way overkill for what I want.
Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop
location: linux.com - date: June 19, 2012
I was about to install Ubuntu server (ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64) from USB drive. The installation went well, until the very end - installation instructed me to remove the USB so the system could boot into new OS. I´ve removed it, confirmed and the setup went from aprox 95% to (i guess, it was very quickly) 100% but instead of then rebooting, it went back to the main install menu, "finish the installation" being selected.
Finishing the installation few more times didnt help either and since there is no reboot option in install menu, I had to do a hard reset. As expected, I was not offered to boot Linux after that last reset (only already installed Win7 and Win8).
I am afraid that if I repeat the installation this would happen again. Any ideas?
As you prob can tell from the very beginning, I am very new to Linux :(

Any of you have any experience with Ubuntu Server? I have been thinking about installing it on a server I am putting together. What I NEED from my server is the ability to watch all my movies, listen to all my music, store all my stuff, and have remote full remote access and give some other limited remote access.
Any advice? Also, I am currently a complete noob to Linux and know basically nothing about it, so what would also be the best way to learn and learn quick.
Windows Server vs Ubuntu Server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2009
Yes, I know this is a forum for ubuntu-stuff so the answer should be obvious...
I mainly want to know if what I want is possible with Ubuntu server and get 'pointed in the right direction'.
What I want:
* Create a 'Windows Domain' for Windows XP clients:
> All account information and privileges editable in the server.
> Users can login into any computer in the domain and have their desktop, wallpaper, documents, settings.
Would be really nice:
* Install software from the sever to all the clients (.msi(?))
* Integrate Mac OS X clients
* Integrate Linux clients
* How powerful (Processor & Ram) should the sever be for 10 clients? or 20?
* What things should I read up on that will help me achieve my goals? (SAMBA, LDAP, etc)?
(Off-topic)For the curious:
I want to help a non-tech-savy high-school-teacher friend setup a better environment in a computer lab at a local high school. And no, I wont be experimenting with this there.
Advantages of using Ubuntu Server over Windows Server

The hardware this is being installed is perfectly capable of running either. I just need the advantages of using Ubuntu over windows. I know its free, more secure, uses less resources, etc. I already have my heart set on it, I'm just trying to convince everyone else.

Ubuntu Server vs Windows SBS 2003 Help Me Get Back To Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2009
Hi, after trying Ubuntu Desktop for 5 months. Plus, another 3 months using Ubuntu Server. I've switched back to Windows Small Business Server 2003.
Here's my story. We have a small construction firm and no IT staff with 20 computers (Windows XP & Ubuntu JJ) & 1 Server. We bought a wonderful package for small businesses, Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2003. I set it up and it was great. Namely: Active Directory, File Services, Print Services, Domain Group Policies were so user-friendly, all in 1 GUI. Except ISA Server, which I didn't know how to configure.
My frustration came when the server was attacked by a virus because I inserted a USB device, my mind was flying at that moment. Then AD users were not authenticated, group policies were erased, printers crashed, usual horrible stuff.
Now, I tried Ubuntu Server. I studied about basic SAMBA, LTSP, NFS, FTP, Squid, and other necessary tools to "COPY" our previous environment. It worked great until I forgot
Help: Goodbye Windows Server Hi Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2008
I' am sure this question is posted too many times, and sorry of it is. Could not find any topics who helped me out on this.
I' am on Windows Small Business Server R2, but after i used the desktop version of ubuntu i' am addicted to the system stability and functions.
So i decided to get our business over to 2 Ubuntu Servers. The server now is as said an SBS server with exchange working.
I want to install 2 new servers that will take the role of my old server. 1 Server who does Domain/DHCP/Print server controller. And one witch will function as mail server. These to need a connection between because the mail server must be into the domain.
I' ve read several tutorials how to set up a simple OpenLDAP+Samba server but this does not cover the whole thing. And as said is a simple tutorial witch could not be compared to a fully working SBS server.
Then second thing is we have people working outside the company, the people need to r
