      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  2. If any of you OVH based providers want to set yourself apart from the crowd and be the first to start offering PowerKVM VPS's out of RBX for under $7 monthly I might be interested. A Power8 OpenStack offering would be even better as long as you keep it under $7 (it's been impossible to find a Power8 VPS since OVH/Runabove ended their Power8 lab). :P *** SoYouStart launched a new server line with amazing specs for the price.: Virtualization options for Power8 servers: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/linuxonibm/liaam/liaamvirtoptions.htm MongoDB and MariaDB already offer Power8 versions so these servers would be great for heavy data processing with large databases...big data

  6. Thank you for the appreciation on my previous tutorials. The network settings which I had used in my previous tutorial bypass what is recommended by OVH but they work perfectly. But some people requested for writing a tutorial with OVH's recommended network configuration so here it is :) Note: Special thanks to @MCH-Phil who has always been very encouraging & helpful to me in hosting related matters. Following assumptions have been made to make it easy for you to understand: ----------------------------- When you receive your dedicated server, please install the OS(in this case CentOS) with native kernel of that OS. Never use OVH kernels as they do not support hypervisors well. ----------------------------- First of all, please check for updates & install them # yum update After the update is complete, please reboot your system: # reboot General rule for network configuration within VMs: If the main IPv4 address of your dedicated server is then inside VMs: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 CTRL + X to save GATEWAY = Main IP of your dedicated server but last octet will be replaced by 254 NETMASK = This will always be regardless of whatever subnet you have. This is because at OVH's network treats every IP as a single one even if it is part of /24 or whatever subnet. HWADDR = This will be the virtual MAC of your VM's IP which you will generate through OVH manager. IPADDR = You may use any IP from the subnet which you got allocated to your server for the purpose of creating VMs. ------------------------- Virtualizor ------------------------- Installing & configuring KVM with Virtualizor is very simple. It is my personal favorite to use with OVH servers as it provides it supports the out of way routed network configuration on OVH really well. Virtualizor have really improved in last year or so & number of VPS providers using it is increasing day by day. Following partition scheme is recommended for your dedicated server: If you did not create the volume group during Cent0S installtion from CD/ISO(or used a template with no options to install a volume group), you can do so by issuing 2 simple commands: # pvcreate /dev/sdb3 # vgcreate vg /dev/sdb3 sdb3 represents the partition of the hard drive where you want to create the volume group & vg is the name of volume group First of all, make sure that your eth0 interface file has following things present(usually it is not required to make any changes to it as everything required is already present in eth0 file after the OS is installed): # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 CTRL + X to save Note:Replace the values in HWADDR with MAC address of the network interface you are using. Open a Shell Terminal (e.g. PuTTY) and SSH to your server. Run the following commands: # wget -N http://files.virtualizor.com/install.sh # chmod 0755 install.sh # ./install.sh [email protected] kernel=kvm lvg=VOLUME_GROUP_NAME email = The Admin Email Address kernel = In this case its kvm lvg = The Volume Group that will be used for the VPS storage e.g. defaults to vg. It should have some OR ALL unallocated space to create LVMs for the VPS. That is it. Now virtualizor script will install everything needed including the bridge automatically After installation is complete, reboot the server & once it is back up again login to Virtualizor admin panel at https://IPofyourserver:4085 In case you are using a network interface other than eth0 e.g. eth1 or eth2 etc then you need to change the change the settings from Virtualizor Admin Panel -> Configuration -> General Settings -> Network Interface After doing that, issue the following command(required only if you changed the network interface to something other than eth0 # service virtnetwork restart Then create an IP Pool with following parameters: Name = Anything you wish Gateway = Netmask = Nameserver 1 = Nameserver 2 = Note: Don't forget to check the routed network option. Add IPs one by one after generating their macs from OVH manager. If you wish to to use more than one IP in a VPS, set mac address of all secondary IPs same as the original IP of that particular VM. Configure other settings, download templates/ISOs through the template browser & then you can proceed with installing VMs. -------------------------------------------------------------- SolusVM -------------------------------------------------------------- With SolusVM, partition scheme should be same as what I described for Virtualizor & you need to configure your eth0 interface in the following way # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 And bridge should be configured as: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-br0 Restart the network network: # /etc/init.d/network restart Install SolusVM master with no virtualization option using the following guide: http://docs.solusvm.com/v2/Default.htm#Installation/Installing-Master.htm%3FTocPath%3DInstallation%7C_____4 Install SolusVM slave with no virtualization option using the following guide: http://docs.solusvm.com/v2/Default.htm#Installation/Installing-Slave.htm%3FTocPath%3DInstallation%7C_____5 Reboot your system after installation Now login to your SolusVM admin panel IP blocks -----> List IP blocks -----> Add IPv4 block For all your OS templates, choose NOT to configure networking automatically. This way, all your VMs will use DHCP & that is the only possible way to make OVH's recommended network settings work with SolusVM. Add IPs one by one after generating their macs from OVH manager.If you wish to to use more than one IP in a VPS, set mac address of all secondary IPs same as the original IP of that particular VM. Note: If you wish to use IPv6 also with SolusVM, I have described it in detail in That is it. I have tried to cover everything in this short tutorial yet if someone is not able to understand something, he can contact me.
  7. I have seen many hosts & other individuals who want to setup KVM with OVH servers having lot of difficulties because the gateways & routing of network interfaces is different in OVH's network. Some even totally give up the idea & quit thinking about setting KVM on OVH's network. That is why I have made this tutorial so that you can benefit from it & set up KVM on OVH servers with ease. Following assumptions have been made to make it easy for you to understand: First of all, we should update our OS with following command using SSH: # yum update Once done, please restart your system. After that make sure IPv6 is working properly on your server, an easier way to check is pinging any popular website with IPv6 # ping6 google.com If there is a timeout then it is possible IPv6 is not setup on the server. So first we will setup IPv6 on the server # nano /etc/sysconfig/network Add the the following 2 lines: Once done, type Ctrl + X, select YES & Enter Now we will add our IPv6 subnet to the server: # /sbin/ifconfig eth0 inet6 add 2001:41d0:a:abcd::1/64 # route -A inet6 add default gw 2001:41d0:a:abff:ff:ff:ff:ff dev eth0 Note: 5x FF have to be placed at the end in all cases, for more details please consulthttp://help.ovh.com/Ipv4Ipv6 Now the IPv6 should be working & we can proceed firther with our installations Install SolusVM(or any other control panel of your choice e.g Virtualizor, Feathur etc): For SolusVM Master server, install with no virtualization option using the following guide: http://docs.solusvm.com/v2/Content/Installation/Installing-Master.htm For SolusVM Slave server, install with KVM using the following guide: http://docs.solusvm.com/v2/Content/Installation/Installing-Slave.htm That will automatically install KVM & now we can proceed with network configurations First of all we will edit the eth0 interface: Type the following using SSH: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 Remove everything which is there & type or paste the following: Once done, type Ctrl + X, select YES & Enter Now we have to edit the br0 interface: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-br0 Save & press Enter Note: Gateway here will always be IPv4 address of your server ending in 254. If IPv6 was working on your server when you installed OS & you didn't have to add it manually, then you might have to set IPV6_AUTOCONF="yes" Next step is configuring the bridging of our IPv4 subnet, the IPv4 addresses from which will be allocated to our virtual servers # nano etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-br0:0 Save & Enter Note: Gateway here will be 2nd last IP of your subnet. Now we do the same for IPv6: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route6-br0 Save & Enter Next is configuring eth1 interface which is for our /27 Subnet: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 Note: Replace HWADDR & UUID with that of your server Save & Enter Make sure IPv4 & IPv6 forwarding is enabled: # nano /etc/sysctl.conf Save & Enter Restart the network # etc/init.d/network restart It is advised that you flush the IP tables also # iptables --flush # service iptables restart It is better to restart the system after all these steps # reboot Now login to your SolusVM admin panel IP blocks -----> List IP blocks -----> Add IPv4 block Save IP blocks -----> List IP blocks -----> Add IPv6 block Note: IPv6 gateway here should be in full notation Go to your OVH manager & generate Virtual MAC for each of your IP addresses that you are going to use for deploying your KVM virtual servers. Also put those Virtual MACs for each IP in SolusVM otherwise SolusVM will allocate MAC addresses automatically which will result in failure of your virtual servers' network hence they will not work properly. Now, you are ready to deploy a KVM vps using SolusVM on your OVH server :) I have tried to cover everything in this short tutorial yet if someone is not able to understand something, he can PM me.
