22 views

I need a guide to virtualization in RHEL.
I tried many ways but it always gives me a different error, and in fact is very difficult and I know what I'm doing wrong.
What I want to achieve is to install a virtual machine from a ks.cfg on RHEL 6
If someone is holding appreciate some guidance about whether the share.
I've searched Google, Youtube, and other pages about it, and I can not accomplish anything.

I think it would help if you were a bit more specific.

For example, putting ks.cfg virtualbox into google came up with this as the
first hit.

VirtualBox is probably the quickest and easiest to use on CentOS. The
other options are VMware-player and KVM.

In my RHEL system I have enabled a port using,

/usr/bin/firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=50000/tcp --permanent

Now how will I disable it? Can anyone help?

It seems that RHEL 7 will only support 64 bit. Is this correct, and what for Centos 7? Also the ARM info I found was the target is ARMv8 which is 64 bit, not the ARMv7 which is 32bit.

Any clarification?

I've seen several articles that listed Centos 6.x as vulnerable, but DID NOT LIST RHEL 6.

I'd think that if Centos 6.x is vulnerable, then so would RHEL 6.x, since Centos is made from RHEL sources.

Does anyone know for sure either way?

logged in to rhel 6.4 using Putty using ssh. Installed the GNOME desktop environment, using this command:

yum groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE Desktop"

Now, followed steps below:

  1. Run the following command to edit the /etc/inittab file: vi /etc/inittab
  2. Press the *I* key to enter insert mode.
  3. Find the line that includes the text initdefault. Change the numeral 3 to 5.
  4. Type :wq and press the *Enter* key to save the file and exit the *vi* text editor.

    Reboot the system using the reboot command. Your system will restart and present a graphical login

The problem is after reboot, grapghical login is not displayed. I tried running command vncserver got output:

New 'z3-9-5-126-154:2 (root)' desktop is z3-9-5-126-154:2

Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/z3-9-5-126-154:2.log

now, from windows laptop, I am trying to connect using vnc viewer but not able to connect. Please help me how to launch GUI mode.

Google found nothing in this list archives for me but did find this :
http://www.unixmen.com/how-to-jul-convert-rhel-5-to-centos-5/

Before I just go try that on one of my systems can someone confirm that it works?

I'm running RHEL 5.7 so I guess I'd replace the 5.4 in the URL with 5.7. Basically I let my RHEL licenses run out (never really used them) and am getting warnings now from yum. Want to just switch over to the CentOS repos.
