Default Virtual Multiserver Environment With Dedicated Server

Dear all,

I have a dedicated server with 8 GB Ram, 6 IPS , 500GB HDD, KVM - HP ILO with pre - install Debian Squeeze 6 co-located in a Data-center & have set up successfully OpenVZ using following thread;

For some reasons, I had to re-install Debain OS & have had some issues on 'Configure Network Settings" which I have addressed to my data-center support but was not answered due to un-managed server agreement.

Any ways, I would request the community as well as Experts to please spare some time for me to confirm the following steps which I have done are correct;

First I installed the base install as per tutorial provided

When I got to Server Network settings,

Name Servers : " I have chosen Google Public DNS &

Primary Network Interface
Eth1 " I have chosen etho"

> Continue

Configure Network Manually ( I selected this since this server is not on DHCP)

> Continue

> Then following IP in the field
IP address :

Then given following in Netmask
"as provided by data center"

Gateway :
"as provided by data center"

Name Server Addresses:


Some of my configurations files are as under;

vi /etc/network/interfaces

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
#Ques+(Do I need to comment this#allow-hotplug etho)
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed

root@server1:~# vi /etc/resolv.conf


vi /etc/apt/sources.list


# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.5 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20120512-20:40]/ squeeze main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.5 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20120512-20:40]/ squeeze main
