    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    I just installed Karoshi using the ISO in Parallels on OS X. It works a charm. Now I'm in Management User mode having installed Karoshi as a PDC (Xen). I like the look of this.

    Is there any documentation lying around about karoshi- management, configuration etc?

    FWIW, I gave the Parallels VM 512MB RAM and the system flies! The resolution settings are funky, but setting it to 1024x768 works very well. The cursor can be sporadic too when logging in, but apart from that it's great.

    There's the wiki but don't know how complete it is.

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    I wanted to try this out and installed it on VMServer last month but came up against the problem that it's IP range is hardcoded using the class B 172.xxx range whereas my home network uses 192.168 and my schools use 10.xxx.

    I went off trying it after this but if you clever ones can tell me how to configure around this I'll try it out again.

    regards

    Simon

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    What's happening to us ?

    I'm looking at replacing our novell based admin network with a karoshi setup as well.

    Has the time come for karoshi ? What I would really like to do is have a really beefy machine with all the karoshi servers setup as vm's.

    Been using bytemark for a while for personal web services, and there VM setup is really quite impressive.

    So what would be my ideal server for this ?

    Answer on a £10 note.

    you could probably virtualise your entire serverroom with a couple of these.

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    To be honest I was thinking sun servers, I just wanted to see if there was anyone as sad as me.

    Mmmmm, Sun kit.

    Can I have a nice Sun Branded Rack with that as well.

    Or how about a nice IBM iSeries.

    To be honest I think I worked in to many insurance companies in the 90's

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    Thanks everyone for trying the system out,

    IP's: We hardcoded (well in one file) the IP's just to make it easier for helping out and problem solving, if you have a firewall with NAT this should sort out any problems, as you can have your system on the 172. range whilst the county is on the 10 range. Also for home/work testing we have know setup a section where if you do need to connect to the Internet, you can 'add an internet connection' and type in your current details and it will act as if it has two network cards on two different networks. So you can have the servers on 172, but still access your internet on 192 etc etc

    budgester: We do have a single server setup now if this is any help, it allows you to have all of the servers running on one server, but I would suggest something beefy

    Virtualistation: We test ours on a mixture of real machines and VMware, glad it works on Paraells (sp?) Not sure of the other one, I had never even heard of it!! You could try though when booting the cd, choosing on the boot screen, 'more options' it takes you to the next screen and on there gives a list of different resolutions, these boot up in a kind of 'safe-mode'.

    At the moment we are just getting Thin Client finished, after that I am just adding the finishing touches to eGroupware, and then will be working on something called LAMS.

    If anyone has any features that we are missing out, let us know, we are always adding, and the holidays allow this to happen much quicker!!

    Thanks again!!

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    Have you had any more thoughts on custom web or curses-based management interfaces to save resources on X and/or if VNC isn't available?

    Re: Karoshi and Virtual PC Server

    Perhaps something like the m0n0wall web interface for controlling everything that various Karoshi servers can do.
