Is it possible to change to root password to a VPS from inside HyperVM? I currently have 4 VPS's setup and I need to change the password for one of the VPses. Can I do this from inside HyperVM without having to go to SSH?
I've noticed on some rackmount servers and firewall appliances there are ports labelled console, and look like serial ports. Are these related to connecting to KVM? I am looking for a cheap appliance for some rackmount servers I have (1U half depth would be ideal), to remotely recover the server if it goes down. I figured they'd connect through PS2 connectors, but then I thought that if the console port was related, then going through that might have the option for power cycling or something.
I'm trying to knock a bug out of our new Hardy Heron Xen template. Basically when the old ones boot up /bin/sh is spawned on the console. Now with Hardy init has been replace with /etc/event.d handling.
So I've replace /etc/event.d/ttyS0 and ttyS1 (not sure which one is the console but I think ttyS0)
Code: # tty0 - shell
# This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is # started until it is shut down again.
start on stopped rc2 start on stopped rc3 start on stopped rc4 start on stopped rc5
stop on runlevel 0 stop on runlevel 1 stop on runlevel 6
I am upgrading my current colo'd server from a 1U dual core xeon with 2x500GB drives to a 2U core 2 quad with 8x750GB drives (raid5).So far I have ran into two issues. One is the rails are too large for the cabinets (problem #1 which I put in another thread). The only other problem is I am having problems with remote console on the new hardware.
It should be setup correctly since I basically rsync'd everything from the old server to the new one. The device is detected:
root@houkouonchi: 03:19 AM :~# dmesg | grep -i tty Command line: root=/dev/sda2 gpt pci=nomsi console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600 notsc Kernel command line: root=/dev/sda2 gpt pci=nomsi console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600 notsc console [tty0] enabled console [ttyS0] enabled serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A 00:05: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
But when I connect to the digi I am not getting any console output. I have tried a different serial -> Ethernet adapter and tried a different patch cable/port on the digi so I am pretty sure those are fine. The motherboard (nforce 650i chipset) didn't have an onboard serial port so I am using a port hooked up to a bracket which has a ribbon cable which connects to the motherboards COM port. I also tested another serial connector which the case has built in and both give me problems.
What type of cable/settings are needed to access the console port of a ProCurve 2626 J4900A? the recent one I ordered wasnt working with the regular way I access these switches.
I use a null modem (crossover) female-female serial console cable and connect it to my laptop serial port w/9600-8-1-None to access my ProCurve 2900 48G series.
But I tried using a straight/null/rollover(cisco's) and none of them worked. I also tried 9800-8-1-xoff/xon. All of them are giving me weird text when I press [ENTER] numerous times. I can access my 2900 series switches fine, no problem, just these 2626 ones I cant. My laptop can definitely detect the port cause when I disable it, I get a message on my terminal window which says "disconnected". So I am messing up somewhere.
By the way, I actually returned the switch when it came the first time because I thought they gave me a faulty one and I got another one, but it behaves the same way. But the actual switch functionality has no issues as I can assign my servers IPs and be able to access them remotely. I just cant configure the switch itself without the console port.
I was able to login from IPMI View just fine, and everything works as expected except "Text Console ". I was able to hit the start button and get the black screen on IPMI View, but that was just about it.
Only a cursor blinking without texts.
Is there something else that I should do in order to get text console working? I've tried all baud rates.
We have a windows 2003 machine that is currently responding properly to all services that it's running (including IIS and FTP), however RDP connections just close right away and the server isn't responding when a local keyboard & monitor is plugged in.
The last thing that I want to do is pull the power out while it's on - any ideas?
I tried a remote shutdown, but the response is: C:Users>shutdown /r /m HOSTNAME HOSTNAME: The entered computer name is not valid or remote shutdown is not supported on the target computer. Check the name and then try again or contact your system administrator.(53)
Since some days I have the strange issue that all logings from DrWeb is shown directly into the console. For example if I connect to my Server via SSH and then I sned an email to my email accoutn I see the logging of the spool.
root@************:~# 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  /var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM - archive MAIL 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/3.part - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/4.part - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/5.reexport - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  /var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM - Ok
this happens in my root shell. if I disable the Email check then this will not happen anymore. another strange issue is that if I restart drweb and I have more than 1 ssh shell open I see the output of the restart on all shells, this issue is only for drweb not for any other service. How to config drweb to log only into logfile not to the console?
I search the web and the only thing I can find was
In the FreeBSD operating system, syslog service can intercept information output by Dr.Web Daemon to the console. In this case, the information is logged character-by-character. That occurs when the logging level is set to *.info in the syslog configuration file (syslog.conf).
i have setup fresh Centos 6.5 with Plesk Pannel 12.0.18. When i execute the attached command from the console, i get it work, some posts are auto created within wordpress. When i enter the attached command within Plesk (Tools / Settings - Taskmanager - root New Task, the command is not executed...
I have a client on a dedicated IP, today we needed to downgrade the web hosting plan. As the web hosting plan puts users on a default shared IP, this plan change also changed the dedicated IP to the shared one causing some propagation issues for a small period of time.
I have contacted WHMCS about this asking if they had a way of changing the clients plan but keeping the IP address intact as this could lead to some very undesirable outcomes. They explained that it is not their fault and to contact Parallels.
I know I can change the plan directly in Plesk however by initiating the plan change via WHMCS, everything is automated.
Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.
#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file
Redirect 301 / [url]
The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. OldWebsite.com/contact.html) redirected to their new website (i.e. NewWebsite.com/contact.html). Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???
#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:
New Company Short Meta Description www.OldDomain.com
What steps did I miss in this transition?
What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?
I currently have vps with Hypervm and I was wondering how do I add additional ip's from the ip pool? I do not see the ip pool in my administration panel. Would it be under the server pool? My provider allocates ips to the ip pool but I do not know how to add them myself.
I am trying to create some vps using openvz but after creating the vps with the Centos basic template 304mb i can't ping the ip and i can't view the centos welcome page in my browser (using ip and not domain, so i don't need to change there anything yet) and the most important is that i can't connect to the vps using ssh
I aks for many good users about my problem but i don' found a solution yet.
I ask my DC about ip's and they told me that the ip's are routed in my server.
