after the update I am experiencing the bloody clock problems again. The system time goes up and down, causing the services to crash
at this moment I am updating the danube cloud machine to version 4.4. Will see what that brings me.
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
pls update the platform and let me know… I've not seen clock problems on new platforms so far
infinity202
@infinity202
hmz, I managed to update the compute node to ce 4.4 and rebooted. The clock problem seems to be solved. But now my mgmt node won't update to ce 4.4
infinity202
@infinity202
ok, manualy running git update to v4.4
ah, sorry. user error. I disabled the zabbix zone mon01 some time ago due to excesive power usage. And the update script fails due to not getting in touch with mon01

how do I create a new lx image?
toybomb
@toybomb:matrix.org
[m]
from scratch i mean
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi

These are the steps I used:

I have created a new LX server with DC using the latest ubuntu LX available 16.04
I copied the <UUID> of the created zone
I stopped the zone with DC
I went to the node via terminal
I created a working folder under /zones
mkdir /zones/WORK
cd /zones/WORK
I Moved the existing /zones/<UUID>/root folder in /zones/WORK/rootOLD
mvdir /zones/<UUID>/root /zones/WORK/rootOLD
I downloaded the omnios LX ubuntu 20.04 available in the github site:

wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/omniosorg/lx-images/releases/download/2020-10-05_16-35-52/lx-ubuntu-20.04-2020-10-05_16-35-52.tar.xz

mkdir /zones/WORK/root
xz -d lx-ubuntu-20.04-2020-10-05_16-35-52.tar.xz
tar xvf lx-ubuntu-20.04-2020-10-05_16-35-52.tar -C root
mvdir root /zones/<UUID>/root

At this point I restarted the zone from DC and it booted correctly

after you can create the image

I want to make a devuan zone since I need something without systemd
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
My method is very simple and you can do also a devuan

ok thanks

toybomb: when you need something w/o systemd, then why not use openindiana in bhyve or freebsd in bhyve? :-)
(just my $0.02. i might be wrong, though.)
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
instead openindiana in Bhyve maybe is better native smartos zone ;)
But LX is used when you have already a package ready for linux
otis
@otis:slackhive.net
[m]
hm, is it something that's only packaged for linux and not available as the source code?
(i try to understand the motivation behind using linux as i'm a freebsd/netbsd/smartos dev/committer)
sm-tradeboox
@sm-tradeboox
Many things that are packaged for Linux just don't compile in Illumos-based distros. E.g. Zerotier (already easy with crossbow), Wireguard, etc. Then there's other services/offerings that rely on multiple packages, some of which are broken under Illumnos. Zentyal is one of these. And not everyone wants to compile from source, package distribution is important. I ran Gentoo for years, but it was only good as a hobby. For business, pre-compiled, versioned packages are essential. My 2¢.
But I kind of agree with what you speak, if source is available, it should be adjusted to compile on Illumnos platforms

instead openindiana in Bhyve maybe is better native smartos zone ;)

ZFS FS inside a VM on a ZFS FS seems to fail spectacularly. This was some time ago, so please, correct me if I'm wrong

I have a question, to use Live migration or freeze filesystem, what I need (qemu guest agent) and where to download it ? Is available also with bhyve?
otis
@otis:slackhive.net
[m]
bhyve does not have guest agents (yet?)
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
@otis:slackhive.net Ok and for kvm how is it possible? what I need to install?
otis
@otis:slackhive.net
[m]
kvm does have.
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
@marcheschi
yum/apt install qemu-guest-agent
that should be enough, DC and qemu will discover it automatically
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
@YanChii that's great
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
I'm trying to make qemu guest agent to work also under bhyve but it's not ready yet
anyway, guest agent is not needed for live migration
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
only for snapshots?

I'm trying to make qemu guest agent to work also under bhyve but it's not ready yet

cool

@YanChii

@infinity202 I've just upgraded Opnsense to 21.1 without reinstall. Everything is working, you just need to click Unlock the upgrade in Opnsense GUI.
infinity202
@infinity202
@YanChii great, I must admit that i discovered the "Unlock" function a few weeks later too. But now I have 2 OPNSense servers ;-) and a backup OpenVPN connector

@aleffio_gitlab
hello, what is the root password? (supposing I booted in maintenance mode)
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
@aleffio_gitlab Hi. If you've booted to recovery mode from the installed system, the login is root/root.
A C
@aleffio_gitlab
and from the USB?
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
it should be the same... If I remember correctly all boot paths, the default platform password is present only when you want login before installing anything.
e.g. failure during install
A C
@aleffio_gitlab
indeed, booting from the usb without any installed system
Jan Poctavek
@YanChii
not sure yet how it works but might be interesting
Paolo Marcheschi
@marcheschi
This is very interesting to try thank you @YanChii
