Debian Rescuing systems using the Debian snapshot server
Post date: September 18, 2006, 09:09 Category: System Views: 3191 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: One of the unofficial Debian project resources which doesn't get the attention it deserves is the Debian Snapshot site. The site contains a mirror of old Debian packages, which can be very useful for system recovery.

In most normal cases you won't ever need to use it, unless you're wanting to compare two different package versions to see changes, or do other non-standard things. However when you do need to use it you'll learn what a big lifesaver it is!

The biggest use for the site, for me, has been for recovering from broken package updates. Whilst these are rare in the Debian Stable and Testing releases they can be an issue when running Debian unstable.
Ubuntu Setting up Xen 3.0 from binaries in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake)
Post date: June 16, 2006, 02:06 Category: Software Views: 1196 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This particular way of installing and configuring Xen is just the path of least resistance for me. There are many other possible ways of configuring the system.
CentOS Installing Xen On CentOS 5.0 (i386)
Post date: June 10, 2007, 17:06 Category: Installing Views: 1537 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen on a CentOS 5.0 system (i386). Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called virtual machines or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other, but still use the same hardware.
Debian Debian Etch And Xen From The Debian Repository
Post date: May 2, 2007, 17:05 Category: Installing Views: 964 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen on an already working Debian Etch system. You can find all the software used here in the Etch repository, so no external files or compilation are needed.
Debian Using multiple network cards in XEN
Post date: December 10, 2006, 03:12 Category: Emulation Views: 2749 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Xen is great. But installing more than one network card became a pain when I tried it the first time. There are some documents describing the principle but I was unable to find a real life example somewhere else. So this is a summary about how it works here now.
Debian Virtualization With Xen 3.3.1 On Debian Etch
Post date: February 12, 2009, 06:02 Category: Installing Views: 524 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen 3.3.1 on a Debian Etch (4.0) system. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other (e.g. a virtual machine for a mail server, a virtual machine for a high-traffic web site, another virtual machine that serves your customers' web sites, a virtual machine for DNS, etc.), but still use the same hardware.
Debian The Perfect Xen 3.0 Setup For Debian
Post date: March 31, 2006, 23:03 Category: System Views: 1000 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen (version 3.0.1) on a Debian Sarge (3.1) system.

Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other (e.g. a virtual machine for a mail server, a virtual machine for a high-traffic web site, another virtual machine that serves your customers' web sites, a virtual machine for DNS, etc.), but still use the same hardware. This saves money, and what is even more important, it's more secure. If the virtual machine of your DNS server gets hacked, it has no effect on your other virtual machines. Plus, you can move virtual machines from one Xen server to the next one.
Debian Creating A Fully Encrypted Para-Virtualised Xen Guest System Using Debian Lenny
Post date: May 3, 2009, 05:05 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 651 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This document explains how to set up a fully encrypted para-virtualized XEN instance. In this howto, the host system is running Debian Etch, while the guest system to be installed will be using Debian Lenny. If you are concerned about your privacy, you might want to consider using hard disk encryption to protect your valuable private data from spying eyes. Usually, the easiest way would be to use your distribution's installer to set up a fully encrypted system; I think most recent Linux distributions support this. However, when you are using XEN to provide virtualization, there are situations where you might not want to encrypt your whole computer with all guest instances, but instead only encrypt one OS instance. This howto will deal with exactly this situation. It assumes that the XEN host system is already up and running.
Debian Xen Live Migration Of An LVM-Based Virtual Machine With iSCSI On Debian Lenny
Post date: April 30, 2009, 06:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 1036 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This guide explains how you can do a live migration of an LVM-based virtual machine (domU) from one Xen host to the other. I will use iSCSI to provide shared storage for the virtual machines in this tutorial. Both Xen hosts and the iSCSI target are running on Debian Lenny in this article.
Debian Virtualization With Xen On Debian Lenny (AMD64)
