Well thanks to your lvm snapshots tutorial I had restored to an earlier backup yesterday the restore took me back in time right before setting up the virtual machine and IP's on Ispconfig 3. This time instead of using private addresses I used the public ones I have and it seems ok now. As far as your questions, yes I had intenet access on the host and yes I switched to all in Neighbour dev setting.
The only weird thing I noticed while trying to troubleshoot it myself for those few days was that there was a weird entry in VM interfaCES. iT WAS LIKE
"dEFAULT route xxxxxxxxx up"
or something like that. Only thing I can think of.
So as of right now VM's have internet and I am going to immediately make another lvm snapshot backup of host lol.
I also plan to take a snapshot of VM's too. Of course I can't ,ake a post without asking questions so here they come lol:
1. I plan to backup VM's using vzdump, you have a tutorial here
that you wrote in 2008. I usually copy and paste your tutorials, has anything changed in the last 4 years to where I couldn't simply copy and paste your tutorial?
2. As soon as I had internet with VM I did apt update /upgrade etc. And it asked the following:
"The boot system is prepared to migrate to dependency-based sequencing.
This is an irreversible step, but one that is recommended: it allows the
boot process to be optimized for speed and efficiency, and provides a
more resilient framework for development.
A full rationale is detailed in /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.Debian. If
you choose not to migrate now, you can do so later by running
Migrate legacy boot sequencing to dependency-based sequencing?"
I googled this and I read this primarily deals with Lenny upgrades? I made sure minimal install image did in fact say debian 6.0 which should be squeeze. the image I used was from your tutorial linjk was "wget http://download.openvz.org/template/precreated/contrib/debian-6.0-amd64-minimal.tar.gz"
I know I used the netinstall debian 6.0 on the host per your tutorial I didn't get asked this. So I was worried somehow I didn't get the correct os template somehow?
Also since I didnt see this screen when installing squeeze on the host should I run ""dpkg-reconfigure sysv-rc"" on the host machine. Since I use ISPConfig 3 is there any pros or cons against using the newer dependancy boot sequencing?
3. On your perfect server tutorials you or Till usually have us select nothing but base install and then we install things like ssh-server etc later in tutorial. I noticed the openvz os template for Debian already had that installed etc. Is there anything I need to REMOVE from the minimal installation before continuing with a perfect server tutorial?
Thanks for reading the novel and as always thanks for the help,
