Hello. Am i able to run VyOS 1.1.8 and use it as OpenVPN gateway in DO?
Add comments here to get more clarity or context around a question. To answer a question, use the “Answer” field below.
What would be the easiest/fastest way to prepare an image that can be uploaded to digital ocean?
And also, once prepared, what is the easiest way to securely transfer it? It's going to be way too big to upload through a browser, I'm expecting 100-200 gigs. While I could give it a URL, I would rather not because there is sensitive contained in the image.
I have created a Custom Image Droplet based on Debian stable.
1.- Do I have to care about SSD optimizations or the VM does all that? Should I follow https://wiki.debian.org/SSDOptimization#Mounting_SSD_filesystems ??
2.- What are the recommended mount parameters for /dev/vda?
3.- As it is suppossed to be an SSD, should I set the 'discard' option (TRIM)?
4.- What about a 'Low-Latency IO-Scheduler'? Should I set a 'deadline' as scheduler?
Where can I see logs/errors why it was rejected?
Distributions: Other (Gentoo)
Purchased & received a .ZIP file containing image.MF, image.OVF & image.VMDK files from SolarWinds; it's a threat monitor collector (for the Cloud). These files are sized 241 bytes, 8K and 992MB uncompressed respectively. The digital ocean documentation for custom images clearly states that a .VMDK is a valid type, and the size of the image is certainly less than the maximum upload size of 100GB.
I've attempted to upload the .VMDK 2-3 times, each time failing with the message that the file exceeds the 100GB limit which it obviously is not. I'm at a loss, as this shouldn't be an issue and work as advertised. I have no idea what may or may not be taking place.
Am I missing something here?
Any help or constructive criticism is greatly encouraged and welcomed. Thanx so much in advance for any/all assistance in the matter.
