We just received our refurbished Dell Poweredge R710 . Bought second hand from Australia for our office usage. Yahoo!
We need a lots of staging servers but we only have one physical servers in our small data center located just behind our meeting room.
Got some free time this week to look into it , therefore I manage to spend some on this server. Although it is old but it still good to have it utilize.
First ssh your server, then make sure update and upgrade your server
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
Install KVM and all dependencies..
sudo apt-get install qemu qemu-kvm libvirt-bin
Check and verify your kvm installation
system will return the following;
INFO: /dev/kvm exists
KVM acceleration can be used
Install Kimchi on your server
sudo apt-get install nginx wget https://github.com/kimchi-project/kimchi/releases/download/2.5.0/wok-2.5.0-0.noarch.deb wget http://kimchi-project.github.io/gingerbase/downloads/latest/ginger-base.noarch.deb wget https://github.com/kimchi-project/kimchi/releases/download/2.5.0/kimchi-2.5.0-0.noarch.deb
