    Configuring CentOS 7 with two IP addresses on Same LAN

    what is the output of "ip addr" and "netstat -nr" Just curious, since your gateway is on the same subnet as your IP addresses why not use a /24 netmask? (

    Cannot install any distro of linux

    I would probably try downloading gparted. https://gparted.org/download.php Create a whole new partition table on the hard drive. (I recommend gpt). Don't create any partitions, don't format it. After that, try installing your distro.

    Bind DNS Server

    also whenever update the zone files, be sure to update the serial number in them. Also be sure to restart the bind-dns service. (I prefer dnsmasq myself ) Finally, what are the actual IP addresses of the servers? Are these static IPs or are you using dhcp?

    Bind DNS Server

    In your "forward zone" file, you don't need the fully qualified name. You can just use the name... i.e. ; name servers - A records ubuntuserver IN A ubuntuweb IN A ---------------------- But this probably isn't your problem. Having a DNS server...

    How to Wipe Hard Drive (Ubuntu 18.04)

    The linux way :) Boot from a live distro. Go to a console (terminal) and type the following commands sudo fdisk -l this will probably give some out put similar to the following... Disk /dev/sda: 489.1 GiB, 525112713216 bytes, 1025610768 sectors Disk model: Crucial_CT525MX3 Units: sectors of...

    why everything is so big?

    You could always build your own, add or leave out whatever you don't want. http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/ But that's time consuming, and you have to have another distro temporarily to build from. You could also do a "net install". For example centos and fedora (likely Ubuntu too?) have...

    By default. ESXi tries to use the entire disk, but even it you tell it not to... ESXi rebuilds a new (MSDOS type) partition table, and re-formats the disk during install. Once this happens, you pretty much need a professional data recovery. $$$$ Even then they will likely only recover whatever...

    Access Ubuntu and Cent OS servers which in network using FQDN instead of IP address

    When you say "a few", it's hard to know how many that is. If it's say a dozen or more, I would go with Rob's idea above. It it's only 6 or 7 or so, you can add them to your /etc/hosts However this could be over written at reboot, to prevent this in CentOS add this line to your...

    Having issue installing fedora 30

    pxeboot, means you're trying to boot from the network device first. I would either make sure my boot order was set to boot the hard drive before it tries to boot from the network, or else just turn off the boot from network option if possible.

    Yum update errors

    You will probably need to go back redhat 7.x. Any of the repos above that have a "7" in the name aren't going to be compatible. i.e. cloudlinux-x86-64-server-7 litespeed/7/x86_64 different kernel, different libraries, different binaries. You could force an over-ride, and you might get lucky...

    Yum update errors

    Since I see kernel 4.19 on here, I am assuming you either "upgraded" to Redhat 8.0, or installed it from scratch? I am wondering what yum repos you have enabled? #> yum repolist enabled I am wondering if you have some redhat 7.x repos enabled?

    Which 'dbus' directory are they reffering to ?

    These are the two directories I have. Usually when I need to make an edit, I edit the one under /etc /etc/dbus-1/session.conf /usr/share/dbus-1/session.conf

    Can't remember my password to authenticate

    The short answer is... No it isn't stored anywhere you can see it. A work around that "usually" works. The caveat is that you have another linux box with a password that you "do" know. There is a file called /etc/shadow. It will likely have quite a lines in it. There will be a line similar...

    How to get all installed Desktop Applications with Licence info using Linux command

    I'm not sure there is a "one size fits all" command for this. For example on Redhat/Fedora/CentOS you could do something like "dnf info tree | grep License" If you wanted to list everything, you could do something like.. #!/bin/bash for i in `dnf list installed | cut -f1 -d.`; do dnf info $i |...
