    Tag me when you finish it, please. I'm having a lot of issues wrapping my head around it.

    How? You open a port that you need... there's almost always a default SSH rule to use as reference to copy or just edit and add the additional ports...

    stop talking about other things and start getting on topic. Im still banned.

    As I'm sure you should be. Lay off the crack.

    The Linux images on the Oracle instances have iptables enabled, and you'll have to modify them in order to open ports. This is in addition to opening ingress through the Networking section of the web interface.

    I tried UFW multiple times, but it didn't work.
    For iptables, I used this video.

    Do I have the opportunity to change the location from Amsterdam TO Frankfurt if we're talking about the free tier? If someone has a Frankfurt LG, please let me know :)

    Once your home region is selected it cannot be changed.

  • Can someone tell me how to install Debian or Ubuntu?
    Cant figure out how to reinstall with a different image

    They have no reinstall function, the only way is to delete and recreate the instance, risking to get "Out of host capacity" and not be able to create a new one.

    You can try the Debian/Ubuntu/CentOS conversion script posted before:

    I did not try myself (just considering to), but people say it works.

    Run this script with --force-efi-extra-removable option to reinstall to minimal Debian 10. Powered by 100% pure official Debian installer (the same thing as in the ISO but booted with GRUB)

  • Thanks, I'll give it a try!

    8GB swap? Their templates are fucked.

    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/3179912/#Comment_3179912

    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/3180398/#Comment_3180398

    comparing these two, the first is Oracle Linux based, the 2nd, Ubuntu Linux based.

    I don't know why, but mine the same situation, ie., after applying their OS templates and rebooting the machine, Oracle Linux based system consumes 8G swap, but Ubuntu based system/VM zero. From HetrixTools monitoring agent stats, it seems Oracle based system consumes more resources, and maybe that's the reason they pre-set a huge swap?

    I recreate my vm-s 8-10 times, never had any problem.

  • @v3ng said:

    That is correct.

  • IPv6 seems to be disabled/ not supported?

    https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/Content/Network/Concepts/ipv6.htm
    "IPv6 addressing is currently supported only in the US Government Cloud."

    Supposedly their panel supports IPv6 already, but for some reason they don't enable it for everyone yet.

    I recreate my vm-s 8-10 times, never had any problem.

    Good for you, I feel like some locations are more likely to run into the stock problem, such as Japan where mine are.

  • Tried using my debit card, got card error... I guess only credit cards works.

    Nope my debit card worked fine, same for others here. It just hates your card, double check that its a physical debit card and that you got the details exactly right. If it doesn't work obviously there isnt anything I can do but I can personally assure you that genuine physical debit cards do work.

    Maybe Oracle Cloud is just rebadged ColoCrossing?

    How do you generate Access Key and Secret Key for the bucket?

    Colocrossing doesn't have any Epycs, AFAIK.

    That said, Larry Ellison probably can't do that much worse.

    you dont you just give the user that runs the vault daemon access to a configured oci-cli install

  • Anyone knows if it's possible to reinstall the vps with another SO without terminate and create a new instance?

  • Anyone knows if it's possible to reinstall the vps with another SO without terminate and create a new instance?

    I used a script linked above:

    to reinstall Ubuntu into Debian, it worked very well. I suppose you can use it to reinstall Debian into Debian again, as well.

    No luck with this ... grub entry was ok, reboot and nothing.
    Tried the Console Connection, connected but I can't understand what to do with it :smile:

    Don't they have a regular console for dummies :wink: ?

    Would be great to boot with netboot.xyz

  • @nfn I'm the developer of bohanyang/debi script.

    Are you using Oracle's Ubuntu template?
    Are you seeing Debian's installer booted?
    Did you use --force-efi-extra-removable option?
    What does "reboot and nothing" mean?

    I believe it works but if it really don't, provide more info and maybe I can take a look

    Yes, was the Oracle's Ubuntu Normal template, not minimal

    Are you seeing Debian's installer booted?

    No, where should I see this? Just saw text there was saying boot entry was added successfully

    Did you use --force-efi-extra-removable option?

    No

    What does "reboot and nothing" mean?

    After seeing the successful message I reboot and the instance never came up.

    I have now terminated the ubuntu instance create a new one with centos.
    Now I have another with Oracle Linux 7 and I would like to Install Debian 10.

    Edit: Does Oracle Console Connection works the same way as we see on "regular" providers (VNC)?

    Thanks

    In the previous instance I reboot but it never came up.

  • @nfn

    Please try again with --force-efi-extra-removable option added. You have to use this on Oracle Cloud.

    Thanked by 1nfn
  • @Chocoweb I've done that, please see my previous post.
    What should I do from here? Reboot?

    Thanks

  • You can also use --network-console to enable SSH console, if you can't figure out how to use the Console Connection (VNC).

    Then reboot with reboot command or shutdown -r now command.

    How to use network console:
    After reboot, wait for about 3 minutes and try to ssh to the VM with user installer and the password you specified. If connected, you can press Ctrl+A then 4 to switch to the log output. Don't press enter (to start a new installer) in console 1

  • How to use Oracle's VNC on Windows 10:
    1. Create a "Console Connection" with your SSH public key
    2. Click the 3 dots and choose "Copy VNC for Linux/Mac" (This is not wrong)
    3. Change ProxyCommand='ssh ... to ProxyCommand='C:\Windows\System32\OpenSSH\ssh.exe and run
    4. Download TigerVNC viewer vncviewer64-1.11.0.exe from https://bintray.com/tigervnc/stable/tigervnc/1.11.0
    5. Connect to 127.0.0.1:5900
