  • ERROR Guest name ‘img-build-centos7-amd64’ is already in use.

    For whatever reason, the maas-image-builder script for CentOS 7 does not like our local mirror.  We’ll investigate further.  But the problem is that it leaves the qemu vm in a bit of a half baked state.  The process fails, but it doesn’t clean up after itself.  No matter, as we can just as easily do […]

  • Ubuntu MaaS + maas-image-builder + CentOS 6

    Ubuntu recently announced support for other operating systems to be deployed with their Metal as a Service provisioning utility.  The hosting company that I work for is primarily a CentOS and Windows shop, so I was curious to experiment with this utility.  While it is still in a testing phase for us, this shows great […]

  • I heart CentOS 7

    So I’ve been using CentOS 7 as my desktop OS for a few days now.  Made significant headway in the edX Linux intro course, and things are going very very well.  Since the course uses CentOS 6.5, I’ve created a virtual machine (in virtual box) to fiddle with and to do the activities in.  However, […]
