When you say 60GB, does that mean it can grow to that
if needed, but only uses as much disk space as
Yep, you've got it exactly right. If even more space is needed, VMWare Server or Workstation can add additional virtual harddrives as well. The info could then be copied to the larger drive, or perhaps extended via logical volume management.
Incidentally, the harddrive file tends to reflect a high watermark. That is, if one downloaded a 5GB file into the appliance, and then deleted it, the 5GB of space that the virtual disk file grew would not automatically shrink away. There is a shrink action in VMWare to do that as required though.
Nice, thanks! Works perfect now!!!!
Just got the VMWare image installed and got another FC5 instance authenticating against the fedora-ds. Still having some issues with automount maps.
Any chance of getting the 1.1 version in a VMWare image?
Thanks a bunch for creating this image.
First I would like to thank you for your time and efforts with this. We would like to use this to evaluate FDS. The problem I am having is that when I login I do not get any wizard to set this up. I went ahead and assigned an IP and put a record in DNS for the box. Is there a command I can run to start the wizard?
So how the heck does one download it if there are no torrent providers?
After several difficult adventures with LDAP I'm trying the Fedora Dir Serv appliance.
Had some trouble I could overcome searching this forum topic.
I'v taken the initial snapshot, but needed to install Gnome and X and Java..
After that I can see things are starting to get working, but...
I'm not sure about the randomly chosen port anymore, searched throught the adm.conf and think I found it, but I cannot connect to the console.
How can I rerun the configuration setup without needing to install all the previous?
I tried touch /reconfigure but this doesn't seem to reset completely..
I have following error on reboot:
Start Slapd Starting Slapd server reconfiguration.
Info Slapd No old nsperl references found
Configuring Administration Server...
InstallInfo: Apache Directory "ApacheDir" is missing.
Thanks for your suggestions!
We want to connect OPENFILER (exists also as a vmware appliance) to the Fedora Dir Server appliance.
We have Fed Dir Srv running, but we lack information to properly setup OPENFILER connexion. This is what we need to fill in:
Server: IP or host or FQDN
Authenticated bind DN:
Authenticated bind password:
Root bind DN:
Root bind password:
Until now I can connect to Fed Dir Srv with LDAPBrowser, the root and root pwd is okay, but what about the authenticated bind ....
I can only connect / configure Fed Dir Srv via the running X-server on the appliance and not remotely.
So basically how do I create an authenticated bind user?
Thanks for helping out and thanks for this appliance!!
Sounded great.. I downloaded, powered on, got a blank screen and "Your version of VMware Tools is out of date" message.. Useless.
Yep, you've got it exactly right. If even more space
is needed, VMWare Server or Workstation can add
additional virtual harddrives as well. The info
could then be copied to the larger drive, or perhaps
extended via logical volume management.
And if i need to export the vm on a phisical machine... Considered that i have a 13GB hd... In wich way i can export the appliance?
I searched tools to dump the hd but i don't know the lvm system...
I've just tried a lvreduce operation on the LogVolume00... Fortunately i've a copy of the working vm!!! :-D
Thanks in advance!!
The torrent is not seeded. I got 99.98% and then I'm stuck. There are 11 seeds but not one of them has the complete file. Can you please re-seed the complete file? I will keep seeding afterwards so that it can propagate a bit better.
Right now this appliance cannot be downloaded!
