More in my tale of the xen-server.
My goal is to run [Lotus Domino] on this box, and the [last installment] saw the server coming up, waiting to be configured. Well, it turns out, that IBM presumes that you have X installed on your servers, because it wants to setup the server using a Java frontend.
So, the first task is to setup X on the virtualized Host. [Giving your Xen instances a working X setup] takes care of that nicely. I found [Chicken of the VNC] to be a really nice VNC client for the Mac. Then I had some problems getting the Notes server to start, but (in turn) that’s what helped me:
* chowning the /usr/local/notesdata to notes:notes
* This error thrown by the domino server
> “”Please edit your shell’s DISPLAY environment variable to
> reflect an unlocked terminal that you would like to launch
> the Domino Setup Program”"
was solved through [an old post on the suse mailing list]
* and also by doing “xhost +” as root in the virtual server [as per this post from the corner office]
* and a link to the [Lotus Domino 6 for Linux] Redbook by IBM
So this is what I get, after a lot of fiddling:
* Can’t use X11 on my Mac to connect to the X client on my Xen Server. Getting all kinds of error messages, that frankly, I don’t grok (and it works with VNC, so there)
* Xen doesn’t use the Swap partition I made for the Notes server. It can’t find /dev/hda2…
But at least, the Domino server is up and running…
