So, gave up with ovh.
Someone used another vps for testing ?
Just for fun I’ve tried to install NS on Amazon EC2 and I’ve found it pretty easy to do.
I don’t know if it is of your iinterest, but I’ve write a simple How to of the steps here
If someone can give me SSH access to a running clean machine, I can give it a try!
I set you a Message with credential. Server has been reseted.
I just successfully installed NethServer on OVH, but there are some problems accessing centos-base and centos-updates from NethServer.repo.
OVH machines resolve host names with IPv6 and CentOS mirror report different answers if queried with IPv4 or IPv6.
To install NethServer on OVH:
yum localinstall -y http://mirror.nethserver.org/nethserver/nethserver-release-6.6.rpm rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/* yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=nethserver-base,nethserver-updates,base,updates install @nethserver-iso /sbin/e-smith/signal-event system-init eorepo nethserver-base nethserver-updates base updates
Also, at the end of the system-init event the machine was stuck and required a reboot.
At the end, I would suggest Digital Ocean over OVS at least for NethServer installations.
Thanks to @enrilor for the collaboration
P.S. If someone needs more technical details about the problem, please feel free to ask.
I tried few times to install NethServer over CentOS 6.6 x64
with the OVH Kernel, with the distribution Kernel,…
everytime it finishing by an unrebootable server (I think I have a kernel panic)
I also figure this : /sbin/e-smith/signal-event system-init eorepo nethserver-base nethserver-updates base updates
was one line
And finaly I figured, how to install CentOS from scratch with those instructions
and now NethServer working well on my OVH
BTW: In what DigitalOcean is different, I means why It’s easier with them ?
These seems small howto for NethServer on ovh, nice!
Never had a single problem installing on DigitalOcean, maybe they use a standard CentOS…
I moved a post to a new topic: Install NetServer on OVH
yes but on digitalocean you have no storage space…ok ssd is cool but if i need a sata/sas disk ? something like >500GB
Just buy a bigger machine!
