  • Open-Xchange Hyperion VMware Image

    Is there an official VMware Image of the latest OX.
    I found this on a FTP server ftp.gwdg.de linked in some old google cache.

    ox5_vmware_image_v1.0-1.tar

    Many thanks.

    I don't think so

    Hello,

    as this is an old google cache as you mentioned. I don't think that this is a Hyperion installation.

    At the moment, I'm trying to prepare VM with Debian/Etch.

    Greetings

      You are right. Hyperion is definitely not labelled as OX5.

        Hi,

        i played around with the Community Edition of Hyperion last night and set up a ubuntu 6.06 LTS vmware image. Currently the groupware functionality works quite fine but i need to configure the cyrus imapd and postfix smtpd. If this system works stable under different circumstances i may upload it somewhere. The system was initially set up to test our installation guide. But please feel free to make Hyperion working on every distribution and operating system - this contribution will be very interesting and helpful.

        At the moment, there is no official vmware image but it will be available soon.

          Last night I was thinking if I use Ubuntu as well because this is the recommended OS.

          But I like debian/etch and it is the main distribution in our infrastructure.

          I try to keep the packages at a minimum to keep the VM as small as possible.

          Hmm, I read that cyrus 2.2 is used. What about the login to cyrus?
          Do you use the mail address as the login?
          This is what I try to setup.

            VMware Image

            That would be great to have the latest all setup on the Linux distribution your suggesting to use.
            Looking forward to working with it.

              VM nearly ready

              Hey guys....

              I have a VM up and running (mail is missing at this time) and it looks great :-)

                Ok, there we go:

                http://www.zion-control.org/hyperion_0.1.tar.bz2

                How-to use it:
                This VM is done with VMWare-Workstation 6.0 (beta) which you can download at www.vmware.com (only necessary whem VMWare-Player is not working)

                User:root
                Password:root

                After starting the VM you have to run
                nohup /opt/open-xchange/sbin/open-xchange-groupware &
                /etc/init.d/open-xchange-admin start

                To connect to the VM, issue this command as root
                ifconfig eth0
                and find out the IP of the VM

                This VM is only for experienced user as it is a quick-shot from this day.

                The Mail-Setup is missing at the moment.

                  Thanks for this contribution! I'll give it a try this afternoon.

                    Currently I implemented the auto start up stuff so you just have to know the IP-Address.

                    The mail setup is a bit tricky at the moment because I'm new to cyrus administration


                    But things are going forward

                    BTW: Is it possible to host the big file elsewhere? e.g. via BitTorrent?

                      Hosting VMware File

                      Couldn't this file be the start of the "official" vm for the project which could be featured here?
                      http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/index.html

                      I would hope the sponsor of OX would offer a place to start a BitTorrent or a download dir.

                        Yep, that'll be the right place.

                        At the moment, the cyrus login is working but the mailing stuff not really.

                        There was a little typo in the wiki which has been corrected.

                          Most contributions to vmtn are done by the companies behind the projects and are "filtered" by vmware inc. So it would be a option that your image may be reviewed by ox inc. and set as an official community edition image.

                            ok, so it's up to you to call it an official VM.

                            But first I think we have to eliminate all the mistakes.

                            The infostore is not working correctly and the mailing as mentioned some posts above.

                              Thats exactly the thing why releases on vmtn must be reviewed - because it is a official release of the company behind the project and not a community marketplace of vmware. But your contribution is very helpful e.g. for debugging the wiki / installation manuals and so on. If you need some webspace to distribute it and if distribution via bittorrent is not possible- send me a pm
