  1. Hey everyone. I have a Dell T420 as part of my homelab for tinkering and even hosting my own websites. I installed a Windows Server 2019 update and it didn't come back up. After investigation, it was hanging on the "Initializing Firmware Devices../Done!" screen. After further investigation I was able to get an actual error message which shows an EFI failure within the base system. I have attempted to install newer and older versions of iDRAC/Lifecycle Controller, I have tried to update the PSU, but PSU and BIOS updates require the user to get past the Firmware Initialization, whic
  2. Okay. I'm dumb. So here is the steps I needed to take: Run LVExtend command: lvextend -l +50000 /dev/mapper/server0--vg-root The + value is how much is free from the command VGDISPLAY The /dev/ value is the location of your LVM partition. Then Run the command: resize2fs /dev/mapper/server0--vg-root The /dev/ value is the location of your LVM partition. And that's it! root@server0:/home/joseph# resize2fs /dev/mapper/server0--vg-root resize2fs 1.44.1 (24-Mar-2018) Filesystem at /dev/mapper/server0--vg-root is
  3. When I enter the following I get an error. root@server0:/home/joseph# resize2fs /dev/sda2 resize2fs 1.44.1 (24-Mar-2018) resize2fs: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda2 Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
  4. So I have zero idea how to use gdisk or fdisk in cli since I'm using server.
  5. Okay. So still after reboot didn't work. It shows in the command vgdisplay the following: root@server0:/home/joseph# vgdisplay --- Volume group --- VG Name server0-vg System ID Format lvm2 Metadata Areas 1 Metadata Sequence No 5 VG Access read/write VG Status resizable MAX LV 0 Cur LV 2 Open LV 2 Max PV 0 Cur PV 1 Act PV 1 VG Size <259.50 GiB PE Size 4.00 MiB Total PE
  6. Actually was a lot easier than that. Just had to enter the following command and LVM extended the partition. lvextend -l +50000 /dev/mapper/server0--vg-root
  7. What commands should I use? I'm sorry I'm still trying to learn all aspects of the system Snapshot is in place
  8. I personally love my orbi RBK23 setup. Absolutely fantastic multi-AP mesh system. Has great wifi and has LAN ports as well. If you need it - it does support VLAN's but I would recommend the RBK50 for VLAN's instead. Uses the standard OpenVPN connections. However if you are just looking for a stable connection back to your house, Zero Tier One is a great free option that lets you create a personal network between all your devices.
  9. Unfortunately since the partition is the live data partition I cannot delete the partition without data loss. Is there any way to make a live resize. Kinda one of the reasons I chose LVM was because of the promise of easier partition management.

  11. Hey everyone. So on my homelab server I have a linux VM running Ubuntu. It has my websites hosted on it just for fun, not for profit. I started with a 64GB vDisk in Hyper-V but Linux said that it was full. So I attempted to create a new vDrive, copy the contents of the old vDrive to the new vDrive and then expand it to the whole size of the drive. This worked and I am able to boot the VM from the new drive, but Ubuntu is still saying that the / mount only has 99.3% free and is showing the size of the old drive. When I set it up originally I set everything up using LVM. I checked p
  12. Alright so this is a long way to do it but I got it working... Set up Crontab to download the file to the directory of your choice every day Have pev output the data to a .txt file Use PHP to parse and display the output of the text file.
  13. So the idea is to download a file onload to the server, read it's program version info and then display the version number to the website viewer. Is this possible, and if so what would it look like?
  14. Hey everyone. I'm building a server with a lot of users (expected). While a VDI-like system would be better for this application, I am moving forward with a server running ESXi and one virtual appliance which will be running the latest Ubuntu LTS. While I understand the basics of groups and users I am having issues creating a usergroup with only access to logout/disconnect (will be using RDP), chrome, and firefox. Obviously they will also need a home directory but they shouldn't be able to see anything outside that directory. So if you could help me find where I can cre
  15. my problem is I have never done a VDI setup. How would it work and where would I start?
