I recently bought a dedicated server from OVH with a clean install of CentOS 5.5 64-bit, webmin, Virtualmin and Cloudmin, and have been trying to set up some xen machines with no success.
Basically, I get three Failover IP's with my server, which can only be used on my server. I have the following IP's: 188.8.131.52 (02:00:00:1b:90:45) 184.108.40.206 (00:50:56:09:a4:22) 220.127.116.11 (02:00:00:d8:26:73)
OVH's system makes you do the following changes to the xen machine: /etc/network/interfaces auto lo eth0 iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet static address "IP Failover" netmask 255.255.255.255 broadcast "IP Failover" post-up route add "Dedicated Server IP but end in .254" dev eth0 post-up route add default gw "Dedicated Server IP but end in .254" post-down route del "Dedicated Server IP but end in .254" dev eth0 post-down route del default gw "Dedicated Server IP but end in .254"
/etc/resolv.conf nameserver 18.104.22.168
What I used to do on my previous ovh server would have been to set up the xen machine with the ip failover, and the gateway 22.214.171.124, and once it was up and running, ssh in, make the changes, and reboot the machine. But this does not appear to be working on the new server. Thew new server's xen machines are un-pingable. The only differences between this server and the last one are as follows:
Old: New: Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit centOS 5.5 64-bit No firewall in Virtualmin Firewall in Virtualmin Disk images for Xen LVM for Xen
Can anyone help? If I get this working, I'm thinking of purchasing a Cloudmin pro license (wanted to see if I can get things working in Cloudmin GPL first)
