Welcome to Ozidev.com

The site is a new website being setup and design to maintain information regarding modern, or semi modern, technology and I.T. related items.

Initially it acts as a journal of my computer and online I.T. hobby type projects, and some semi-commercial projects, that I maintain or wish develop further.  A resource I can refer back to when needed, and being open to others looking for similar data.

I've left it open to all at this stage so anyone can have a nosey or might even gain some information they require.

The main projects and item focus initially is the setup of a new dedicated server I recently leased, the setup as well of a Linux based home server and workstation, and also the upgrade of my other dedicated server and hopefully combine the 3 in a small cluster and fail-safe type setup. These will be used as private email and website severs to enable me to offer friends and small to medium business in the area a online service, including websites, emails etc.  This will be happening hopefully within the next couple of months, so a lot of the info will be towards that end goal.

I also want to setup the home workstation / Server for development and as the primary connection and backup to the 2 online servers.

Very much a work in progress.

This site is very rough around the edges at the moment but will slowly take shape over time.

I primarily use this a s a journal or notebook for some of the projects I'm doing.  The primary goal at the moment is setting up a number of online servers for use with some webhosting and also to try and learn a bit about Linux and server operations as well as having a bit of fun.

This site will be undergoing many changes in the coming period and hopefully will be of some benefit to me and anyone who stumbles upon it.


Install the basic files required.  

yum install qemu-kvm libvirt libvirt-python libguestfs-tools virt-install

now we start the sevice livird which is  the aemon component of the libvirt virtualization management system.  All the fun stuff of virtual host management.

systemctl enable libvirtd

systemctl start libvirtd

Verify the installation

lsmod | grep -i kvm

Did a quick reboot - network restart ?
