Default VMWare Image corrupted - The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.04 (x86_64) [ISPConfig 3]

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.04 (x86_64) [ISPConfig 3] (609.1 MB) (05/05/2010)

I have a paid subscription, and I've downloaded: The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.04 (x86_64) [ISPConfig 3] twice.

I tried converting the vmware image files to raw using: qemu-img convert Ubuntu\ 64-bit.vmdk -O raw Ubuntu10.04_x64.raw and qemu-kvm to play them, and I get:

UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY

I also tried using VMWare's Player thinking it was just qemu-img's problem. I get the same error.


Has anyone that has a paid subscription had that problem with this particular VM?

Thanks for your report. We will check if the image is corrupted.

Default More info:

This is what vmware player says upon launch:

The disk "/mnt/vm_images/The_Perfect_Server_Ubuntu_10.04_x86_64_ISPConfig_3/Ubuntu 64-bit.vmdk" has internal consistency errors that might be caused by partial corruption of the disk file. It is recommended that you restore a backup of this virtual machine. If you do not have a backup, VMware Player can repair the disk, but there is a possibility that the data on the disk may be corrupt and affect the stability of the guest.
Do you wish to repair the disk and continue?

Default Any updates on this?

I tried some of the other images, and they all seem to work.

It would be great to be able to download a good copy VM soon...

Thanks!
Chris

You are right, the image is corrupt. I've removed it from the server (unfortunately I don't have a backup anymore because it's so old ).

Why dont you use the current Ubuntu or even better Debian? Debian is the recommended Distribution for ISPConfig 3.

Unfortunately the host I have my VPS with only has Ubuntu or CentOS - I was going to download the VM image, change the network settings, then restore onto my server. I was advised that it's best to run 10.04 in a live environment?

I thought of doing the above, because I have an email issue I can't fix (http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55228), so wanted to start with a server that was 100% setup correctly.

Default The image is old but is an LTS (Long Term Support Version)

The first time I found your site, I used one of these for my production server VMs and it worked out great for a years. I used an non-LTS version and there are no more critical updates. That's why I choose Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Even though its quite old, Ubuntu 10.04 LT is still more up to date than CentOS/REL 5.xx .

I actually don't need it anymore, because the perfect setup guide for Ubuntu is very easy to run though.

I setup two servers using your guides over the weekend. Your guides are always excellent. I also bough your billing module. Glad I can help support howtoforge.
