Cannot copy files > 2 GB to NFS mount on Ubuntu 12.04 server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 30, 2013
My "server" is really just an overgrown hard drive used for backup. It has 3 x 1 TB and 1 x 2 TB individual drives - no RAID. All are accessible via NFS, Samba and SSH.
The machine has run Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04 just fine for many years. Recently I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 (yes I know I should reinstall rather than upgrade but I may be doing that or decommissioning in near future so I said what the heck). The upgrade seemed to work fine.
Today I noticed that I could not copy a file > 2 GTB to the sever via NFS. I get the message "Error writing file: File too large." I observed this in Gnome Commander and Nautilus on my CentOS 6 workstation. Here are some of the key configuration files.

Ubuntu 12.04 Server requires reboot after update
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2013
I have a production ubuntu 12.04 server, and in like 3 months I had to reboot it two times because of updates.
How are you guys managing to avoid these reboots after updates?
USB drive install of Ubuntu 12.04 Server fails Problem reading data from the CDROM
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2013
This is a self resolved post that I thought I should share with the community.
I'm on a Windows 7 machine prepping a bootable USB for installing on an old HPI downloaded the official Ubuntu 12.04 Server 32bit ISOThe MD5 checksum checked out OK using winMd5SumI created a bootable USB using:
LinuxLivethen PenDriveand finally Unebootin
(all three are sufficient but none corrected the errors I will mention)
During installation I received the following error message:
[!!] Load installer components from CD
There was a problem reading data from the CD-ROM. Please make sure it is in the drive. If retrying does not work, you should check the integrity of your CD-ROM.
Failed to copy file from CD-ROM. Retry?
If I chose Yes it failed. So I chose No and worked my way back to the main install menu to check the integrity of my CD-ROM as suggested by the error. NOTE: In this case CD-ROM means the bootable USB I am installing from.
Need to change display for console on Ubuntu 12.04 server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 27, 2012
I don't know if anyone here has encountered this or not, but here goes...
I just replaced a couple of Windows servers running SQL Server with Ubuntu 12.04 and PostgreSQL. The install is fine, but the console won't work with our Raritan Dominion KXII KVM (KMM, whichever you prefer). The KVM can't handle the resolution of the Ubuntu console. Apparently, the console runs at 1280x1024. I need it to run at a display just like RedHat/Fedora/CentOS use, 720x400, and may even need to change the font to get it to work. Basically, the RedHat-based systems use the old 80x25 (80x24?) character display and it works with the KVM. The higher resolution on the Ubuntu server creates a display that has a wider and higher character count (not sure what it is though).
Does anyone know how to change this? I can't do jack with the servers until this is fixed.
Thank you all,
Ubuntu 12.04 server localhost installation user validation problem.

I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 server in a VirtualBox.
On my first login I made a typo and logged on as 'brace'
when I intended 'grace'. Ubuntu created a new user
'brace'. Since I wanted the name to be 'grace' I changed
the user name to grace, and renamed the /home/brace
directory to 'grace'. Problem solved! BUT, when I shelled
in and logged in as grace I got the following:
"Could not chdir to home directory /home/brace: No such
file or directory" ---Ooops!
Is there a clean and easy way to fix this, or should I
just do the installation over again.
Incidentally I found out that if You are trying to use
PuTTY to shell into a VirtualBox Bridged Adapter, You
will run into a problem if You have Windows Virtuual PC
2007 server installed. Add this to Bridged Adapter
problems usual suspect list.
This looks like a great forum. Thank You in advance for
any help that You may be able to offer.
Ubuntu 12.04 server rsyslog no longer logging to default /var/log/syslog
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
I've been trying to get rsyslog working to accept remote logs. I've read many articles that argue how easy it is, implementing steps on both the server side and client/forward side.
In messing around with my rsyslog.conf I believe I have render rsyslog broken. As when I tail my /var/log/syslog log, there are no entries in the past hour and I have started, stop, restarted services.
Here is my rsyslog.conf file:
# /etc/rsyslog.conf Configuration file for rsyslog.
# For more information see
# Default logging rules can be found in /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf
#### MODULES ####
$ModLoad imuxsock # provides support for local system logging
$ModLoad imklog # provides kernel logging support (previously done by rklogd)
#$ModLoad immark # provides --MARK-- message capability

Ubuntu 12.04 Server Static IP Assignment Waiting for network configuration
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 24, 2013
I hate to make my first post to this forum an obvious admission of stupidity on my part, but if the post helps others, then it was all worth it.
I installed a clean version of Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS on a new computer. Installation went normally. But I needed to give this server a static IP, so I edited the /etc/network/interfaces file, deleting the following line:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
and adding the following:
iface eth0 inet static
When I rebooted the system it would pause for 60 seconds saying, "Waiting for Network Configuration. It would then say, "Waiting an additional 60 seconds for Network Configuration. Eventually the system would boot, and I could ping the gateway, but trying to ping google.com yielded "network unreachable" messages.
/etc/resolv.conf is an auto-generated file containing name servers. When I looked at the resolv.conf fil
Ubuntu 12.04 server. Residual hardware information in system image preventing boot.

I'm having a problem with booting up the Ubutu server 12.04 on different computer that was orignally installed.
The boot process hangs at upstart. Mountall spawns two processes that do not ever finish.
The purpose was to make an image of system so it can be quickly deployed on several computers (computing nodes in cluster).
The installation was standard:partition for swap, and /
minimal install + ssh server
ldap for user accounts
At this point I tested everything (in computer A) and prepared system image:
Ubuntu 12.04 Server raid1 software second disk boot problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 6, 2013
Hi, I installed ubuntu 12.04 64 bit server by setting the raid 1.
I waited for the synchronization, rebooted the system.. all ok so I decided to do a test to see if the properly with only one disk. If I use only the first disc the system starts properly but if I use only the second disk the system will not start: the system reboot. I also tried to connect the second disk to the same cable of the first disk but the problem still remains .
I've done tests with different hardware, also swapping the two discs ... the problem is always the same. The disc number 2 does not boot properly but rather the PC will restart.
Do you have any suggestion ?
authorizedkeys in ubuntu 12.04 server
- date: June 10, 2013
I am trying to configure gitolite but one of the first steps is to create a private/public key pair on my local machine then copy it down to the root's ~/.ssh folder. I successfully created the two keys and used the scp command to copy the .pub file to the server. The second step is to go to the server and copy that pub key to the gitolite .ssh folder.
Problem is I can't find the .ssh folder in either the gitolite or my root folder.
To be somewhat clearer, when I say "root folder" I'm talking about my default server user which I configured when I installed the server. That user is bobt. Here are the steps I took:
on my local machine I generated the two key files:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f gitolite
this generated 2 files called gitolite and gitolite.pub
Next I used scp to copy these files to my server:
scp gitolite.pub [email protected]
I got no error when this completed.
Next I went to the server and logged in with my default account of bobt
I did a change directory to get t
