LFS216- How to add the 3 Free Tier Instances to guest Ubuntu 18.04 on Oracle Virtual 6.1.18 on W10.


Hi everybody!
Someone can instruct how I can add the 3 instances to Ubuntu 18.04 for the Course LFS216.
I connected one by one and downloaded them by Remote SSH client. The instances did not show nothing wrong,
but I could not add them to my system, even using this script; $ ./ready-for.sh --install LFS216.
Thank you!

    the ready-for.sh script is run only after you ser up the VM. it does not add them to your system. more detail is needed if you hope to get help

    Hi Coop: Post 698, LFS216
    I get the AWS EC2 3 instances connected one at the time using 3 Terminals cmd line: ssh i ... But, I ran the Script ready-for.sh on Guest Machine Ubuntu 18.04.5 and extract Virtual CentOS.vmdk by using a pre existing Ubuntu 18.04.5 by VirtualBox hosting on Windows 10, after the Script ready-for.sh asked what Virtual Machine to use with 2 Options: [None | CentOS7], then one time I optioned for CentOS7, which I have already extracted, then it started to Downloading, I do not know why, because the VM CentOS7 was crunning, and said system was ready, but with 4 fails: 3 for CPUs: (20000 Bogos, 2 Cores at least, and not Capabilities svm|vmx, and fail for Memory, only 4Gb). Also othertimes I optioned for both VM CentOS | None, then the script said the system was not ready.

    Here is the System Configuration:
    Host Windows 10,
    Hypervisor Oracle VirtualBox 6.1.18 | 20
    4 Guests:
    1-Ubuntu 18.04.5 plus CentOS7.vmdk extracted which use the same Ubuntu 18.04.5,
    3-CentOS8, this system, any installation I try todo asked for CD Media.
    4-openSUSE Leap 15.1 each run one at time.

    Host Windows 10: 2 Cores 4 CPUs, 12 GB Memory, 1TB HD
    Guests each is set up with 2 Processes, 4Gb Memory, 120GB HD.
    One at the time, their run well, except yum on at CentOs systems, I have to use dnf.
    Ah, about the Code of the Course LFS265, it is gone, which one replace it?

    I will appreciate your answering.
    Thank You.

    .... oops forgot to hit "post"

    In LFS216 we use two machines one called main and one called secondary for most exercises. We strongly recomend using the pre-created VM's available from the Linux Foundation. The exercise for Chapter 2 has instructions for setting up the environment. Currently CentOS8 is recomended for the lab exercises. When the two machines are up, please run the ready-for.sh script that should be in the /home/student/LFT directory on each VM, please select "yes" for loading the SOLUTIONS and RESOURCES files.
