Oracle VM Server: How to add ISO images to your repository

After  setting up
you have to upload some ISO images to your repository, so that your virtual machines can boot with these ISO images.

So inside Oracle VM Manager go to the "Repositories" tab and use the "import iso icon" (the blue arrow):

The only way to import ISO images is to give a URL to Oracle VM Manager:


And after pushing the ok button you can monitor the download inside the job summary tab:



Inside the repository tab you will find the ISO image after a successful download:

This ISO image can now be used inside the configuration of your VMs. (Take a look here)

Oracle VM Server: my first vm: Error: HVM guest support is unavailable

All my tests with Oracle VM Server are running inside Oracle Virtualbox. If you want to do some tests yourself with this setup, you can easily get this error message after powering on your VM:

Server error: Command: ['xm', 'create', '/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000dad74d9c43176d2e/VirtualMachines/0004fb00000600005e79798ecb1a63cf/vm.cfg'] failed (1): stderr: Error: HVM guest support is unavailable: is VT/AMD-V supported by your CPU and enabled in your BIOS?
stdout: Using config file "/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000dad74d9c43176d2e/VirtualMachines/0004fb00000600005e79798ecb1a63cf/vm.cfg".
To get your system running, you have to change this for your Oracle VM Server node on VirtualBox:


After that you get:

Server error: Command: ['xm', 'create', '/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000dad74d9c43176d2e/VirtualMachines/0004fb0000060000b5dca8dccb8b74f6/vm.cfg'] failed (1): stderr: Error: Boot loader didn't return any data!
stdout: Using config file "/OVS/Repositories/0004fb0000030000dad74d9c43176d2e/VirtualMachines/0004fb0000060000b5dca8dccb8b74f6/vm.cfg".
But this is due to specifying no boot media at your VM. Therefore you have to add an ISO image to your Oracle VM Server repository.

Docker: How to build you own container with your own application

atThere are many tutorials out there, how to create a docker container with a apache webserver inside or a nginx.
But you can hardly find a manual how to build your own docker container without pulling everything from a foreign repository.
Why should you not pull everything from foreign repositories?

You should read this article or this:
But since each phase of the development pipeline is built at a different time, …
…you can’t be sure that the same version of each dependency in the development version also got into your production version.
That is a good point.

As considered in this article you can put some more constraints into your docker file: 
FROM ubuntu:14.04.
or even
FROM ubuntu:0bf3461984f2fb18d237995e81faa657aff260a52a795367e6725f0617f7a56c
And that is the point where i tell you: Create a process to build your own docker containers from scratch and distribute them with your own repository or copy them to all your docker nodes (s. here)

So here the steps to create your own container from a local directory (here ncweb):

# ls -l ncweb/
total 12
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            90 Nov 26 10:06 Dockerfile
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root           255 Nov 26 11:29 index.html
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root             0 Nov 26 11:29 logfile
-rwxr--r--    1 root     root           176 Nov 26 11:29 ncweb.sh  
The Dockerfile contains the following:

# ls -l ncweb/
alpine:~# cat ncweb/Dockerfile 
FROM alpine
WORKDIR /tmp
RUN mkdir ncweb
ADD .  /tmp
ENTRYPOINT [ "/tmp/ncweb.sh" ]
Into this directory you have to put everything you need, e.g. a complete JDK or your binaries or ...

And then change into this directory and build your container:

ncweb# docker build -t ncweb:0.2 .
The distribution to other docker nodes can be done like this:

# docker save ncweb:0.3 | ssh 192.168.178.47 docker load 
For more details read this posting.

 Depends: libparted-fs-resize0 (>= 3.1) but it is not installable
 Depends: libparted2 (>= 3.1) but it is not installable
 Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.9) but 4.8.2-19ubuntu1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


I tried some solutions like
apt clean
or removing many repositories out of /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.d but the error still remained.

After some tries i found the solution via these commands:

The installation of libparted-fs-resize0 does not work with the following error:
root@pc:/etc/apt# apt install libparted-fs-resize0
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.     
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:
Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 libparted-fs-resize0 : Hängt ab von: libparted2 (= 3.2-15) aber 3.2-15ubuntu0.1 soll installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.
So i checked this package:

root@pc:/etc/apt# apt-cache policy libparted2
libparted2:
  Installiert:           3.2-15ubuntu0.1
  Installationskandidat: 3.2-15ubuntu0.1
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 3.2-15ubuntu0.1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     3.2-15 500
        500 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages
Hmmm. 2 Versions inside my versions-table. So i removed the local status file:
root@pc:/etc/apt# cd /var/lib/dpkg/
root@pc:/var/lib/dpkg# mv status status.180227
root@pc:/var/lib/dpkg# touch status
And after that the problem was gone:
root@pc:/var/lib/dpkg# apt update
root@pc:/var/lib/dpkg# apt install gparted
Here we go:
