  • Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On Mandriva 2008.0

    Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 0

    Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On Mandriva 2008.0 In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig on Mandriva 2008.0. MyDNS is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. The advantage is that MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted. A secondary nameserver can be easily set up by installing a second instance of MyDNS that accesses the same database or, to be more redundant, uses the MySQL master / slave replication features to replicate the data to the secondary nameserver.

    VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 3.1.x On A Headless Mandriva 2010.0 Server This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with Sun VirtualBox 3.1.x on a headless Mandriva 2010.0 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.

  • Virtualization With KVM On A Mandriva 2010.0 Server

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 2

    Virtualization With KVM On A Mandriva 2010.0 Server This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Mandriva 2010.0 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

  • How To Install VMware Server On A Mandriva Free 2007 Desktop

    Author: falkoTags: , , , Comments: 0

    How To Install VMware Server On A Mandriva Free 2007 Desktop This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Mandriva Free 2007 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).

  • How To Set Up A USB-Over-IP Server And Client With Mandriva 2010.0

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: Comments: 0

    How To Set Up A USB-Over-IP Server And Client With Mandriva 2010.0 This tutorial shows how to set up a USB-over-IP server with Mandriva 2010.0 as well as a USB-over-IP client (also running Mandriva 2010.0). The USB/IP Project aims to develop a general USB device sharing system over IP network. To share USB devices between computers with their full functionality, USB/IP encapsulates "USB I/O messages" into TCP/IP payloads and transmits them between computers. USB-over-IP can be useful for virtual machines, for example, that don't have access to the host system's hardware - USB-over-IP allows virtual machines to use remote USB devices.

  • Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva 2010.0

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 0

    Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva 2010.0 In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Mandriva 2010.0 server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems (like "We need a bigger server soon, our load average is increasing rapidly."), and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.
