I have now a mix of linux dist in my vmware environment.
I have upgrade my server with more CPU and that and was thinking maybe run everything with nethservers. So in this two days I have done that. Now I running 8 Nethservers on my vmware and it works very nice.
The only I have left is a CSGO, Hassio and pihole server
I have find some guide of this three to install on CentOS 7
(This is the Home Assistant version and not hassio but maybe with dockers I can get it to work with hassio but not sure. Have see alot of people have that problem with hassio and CentOS 7)
(I did find someone asking for pihole to be a feature in nethserver but the thread was from 2018 so I guess it did not happen
My question is this good guide or do someone have anything better that fit nice to nethserver?
Why I asked is because I accidentally found that someone here has made a package of zabbix and guacamole when I searched for something else. thanks mrmarkuz for that
I’m running PI-Hole at home, installed according to the instructions on a Linux Container in my Proxmox. This uses very little CPU and RAM, but works great.
I’m also running Home Assistant (HassIO), but I have a RaspBerry 4 running that.
HassIO works great, but installing it anywhere else than suggested is more than a PITA.
(PITA=Pain in the A…)
There ARE VM Images for VMWare…
PI-Home can be monitored in Home Assistant, and so can Proxmox (and / or VMWare!).
As I’m running Home Assistant in a seperate box, I can use Wake on Lan (WOL) to start my Proxmox, Computers and NAS, if needed.
Easier forwarding for eg the Z-Wave Stick, although USB would be possible for a Container…
Serial in a Container is a PITA… Never could get RAZberry to work with Home Assistant on my Raspberry, and that’s built in Docker…
Thanks for the replay,
I going to try to see if I got it to work and I do not need to rush, as long I have my old system working I can take my time.
I did use Raspberry Pi before to my Hassio but I did got some problem with the SD card so I switch to the Ubuntu with dockers. and it was very easy and simple to get it to work.
I guess when it run inside a dockers it does not care what kind of machine it have.
I have try a little now for fun and I have never hear about portainer but it was easy to install.
But not sure the bridage (aqua) works with my network. Not sure why and I have look what I can but not sure what to see. I even open up dockers on the firewall like you did write.
Be aware that HassIO (At least the Raspberry HassIO/Home Assistant Image provided) uses a more or less hard coded IP inside the docker. If I recall correctly, it’s 172.30.30.1. If you happen to use that in your Network, your network can get screwed - a friend had that IP as his firewall, the network for 10 years.
Home Assistant would not work. After having a closer look, it’s understandable. IP conflict with the default gateway / router. HassIO couldn’t download needed components.
This IP is not cleanly isolated inside docker…
(That’s why you get problems…)
I know, but is hard to stop, working and fix linux is addictive
I have a CSGO server, Database Server, Hassio, pihole, webserver, mediaserver, nextcloud server, Proxy server, Mail server, Guacamole and Zabbiz. I just thinking what more I can have that is good to have
