    Private Network best practice

    Hey, Could you clarify the scenario in more details? In general, you can try set up a several IP pools using IPs reserved for private networks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network), e.g. -, - and so on. And configure routing to make them communicate. Mostly, SolusVM allows automating assigning IP address from private network IP addresses pool. For planning the entire network architecture it is better to consult with network engineer.
  2. I had an issue recently on newly deployed SolusVM installation and strugling with this for a several hours. The solution was so easy so I decided to post it here, maybe it will save to for other SolusVM users who will face it.I tried to configure noVNC feature on SolusVM v1.20.05 with HTML 5 console. I walked through the documentation https://docs.solusvm.com/display/DOCS/noVNC+Configuration and enabled the feature in configuration settings, installed all the necessary dependencies and SSL certificate. After all these steps I tried to connect to the running KVM VPS and connection windows displayed the error 'Server disconnected (code:1006)'. Long story short, I found that I did not create /usr/local/solusvm/data/config.ini with the following content: [NOVNC] use_remote_hostname = true socket_dest_public = false There is no such file as a default, only config.ini.sample template file, maybe that was the reason why I missed it. Once I created it and added the lines above, noVNC magic started to work
  3. Also, you can connect to the container's command line with "vzctl enter CTID" command and check its network configuration and logs inside of the container directly. CTID should be replaced with actual ID of the container.

    debian and ubuntu kvm templates from TDN

    Hi, Can you send details about the host node? Kernel version, partitioning, OS release? What is the automatic update you mentioned, is this system updates? Also, what is the SolusVM version, 1.19 or 1.20?
  5. Hi, Most likely remote desktop connections feature is disabled in Windows Server 2008. Connect to the server via VNC and check RDP settings and make sure that network interface inside of the VPS is configured properly. To connect via VNC you can use VNC Viewer for Google Chrome plugin (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/vnc®-viewer-for-google-ch/iabmpiboiopbgfabjmgeedhcmjenhbla) If VNC settings were not customized, then you should use the slave node main IP to connect and for VNC port use 590X (you have to replace X with the number set as VNC Port for VPS settings) The password should be generated on the VPS creation.

    VNC Server Won't Connect

    Hi, Have you tried to use another VNC client like VNC Viewer plugin for Chrome?
  7. Hi, In addition to basezap answer, found a monitoring script that can be useful - https://github.com/bacarrdy/openvz-monitor It provides the brief info about the CTs running in the following format: # sh openvz-monitor-master/mon.sh VEID: 101 --- Read: 0MB/s Write: 0MB/s CPuUsage: 0% MemTotal: 36028797018963967 MB MemUsed: 38 MB LoadAverages: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 HddUsage: 8% HddTotal: 9.8G VEID: 102 --- Read: 0MB/s Write: 0MB/s CPuUsage: 46% MemTotal: 36028797018963967 MB MemUsed: 257 MB LoadAverages: 0.66, 0.28, 0.11 HddUsage: 17% HddTotal: 9.8G The output can be parsed and some action are specified (restart VM) in case of over usage in the cron script.

    How can I chose my own OS Image avatar?

    Hi, I am not sure what are the avatar images you mentioned, but try to customize these files on the master node: # ls -l /usr/local/solusvm/www/template_assets/admin/default/images/icons/ | grep "openvz\|kvm\|xen" -rw-r--r-- 1 solusvm solusvm 1039 Jul 12 10:22 kvm.gif -rw-r--r-- 1 solusvm solusvm 3900 Jul 12 10:22 kvm.png -rw-r--r-- 1 solusvm solusvm 634 Jul 12 10:22 openvz.gif -rw-r--r-- 1 solusvm solusvm 1787 Jul 12 10:22 xen.gif -rw-r--r-- 1 solusvm solusvm 2186 Jul 12 10:22 xenhvm.gif These files are icon images for virtualization type in UI.

    KVM templates both slave and master?

    Hi, This is ok to have an empty template file on the master node, like # ls -l /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-debian-9-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jul 13 14:47 /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-debian-9-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz Just make sure that you have uploaded a non-empty template on the slave node ) Note that it is safe to sync media in this case, the template with zero size will be skipped.

    Number of emails a VPS can send

    Hi, I think you are talking about some kind of Outgoing Mail Control feature for the VPS instances. Walked through the SolusVM docs and did not found any. It makes sense because configuring of such limits depends on MTA on the server. I guess it should be configured directly on the server.

    Graph images are blocked from poor SSL in WHMCS

    Hi, Try to add the following lines into "Access Hash" in the server settings for WHMCS: <ssl_verifypeer>no</ssl_verifypeer> <ssl_verifyhost>no</ssl_verifyhost> https://docs.solusvm.com/display/DOCS/SSL+Configuration
  12. Hi, There is a Video tab in Settings for the KVM VPS instance (Dahsboard > Virtual Servers > Click on the server ID link) You can setup video drivers there. VGA, vmVGA, Cirrus are available to select.

    TUN/TAP Module Enable on KVM ?

    Hi, AFAIK, it is possible to enable the module from inside of the VPS instance only: # modprobe tun

    KVM Server Node load issue ?

    Hi, KVM host node load is shown on the Node Information page, Nodes > Click on the node name Also, found that load averages can be fetched from command line (https://docs.solusvm.com/display/DOCS/Monitoring). It returns data in json format, e.g.: # curl -k https://SLAVE_NODE_IP:6767/status/?id=UZ6AOV {"success":"1","uptime":" 04:39:10 up 6:32 1 user","avg1":"0.00","avg5":" 0.01","avg15":" 0.05","kernel":"3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64","os":"CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core) "} SLAVE_NODE_IP has to be replaced with IP address UZ6AOV - its a first 6 characters from the node's ID key that is used during adding the node to master I think it is possible to create some script that will query the slaves, parse the response and perform some actions, e.g. send notifications. Also, there is a Metrics page with statistics data collected:

    Bandwidth Monitor on KVM Server Node ?

    Hi, AFAIK, there is a suspending feature when bandwith value hits the limits. It can be added on the Plan level as a pre-gen Suspend on Bandwidth Limit option in Dahsboard > Plans > plan_name OR you can browse to Dashboard > Virtual Servers > virtual_server_name > Manage Virtual Machine (blue speedometer icon) > Settings > Bandwidth tab and tick auto-suspend checkbox Let me know if this helps or not.
