Connection Pool Problems for MySQL/GlassFish/OpenSolaris
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Last night I spent some time setting up a connection pool in GlassFish's admin console. Here's the backstory: I'm working on a training course for cloud computing, and as part of my module on assembling a virtual data center I ran into a few problems. I have two virtual servers running. One is running OpenSolaris and has GlassFish application server installed on it. The other is running Fedora Linux and has my MySQL database on it. The problems occurred when I tried to ping the database server from GlassFish. I got some strange messages. When a colleague of mine googled the problem, he found out that the problem was OpenSolaris specific. …

AWS Experience Part 6: Creating a Custom AMI
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Here is another installment on working in the cloud, the AWS cloud that is. Today's topic: creating a custom AMI. This may sound like as easy task. And it would have been, had AWS documentation been up to scratch. I spent lots of time messing around with this, and I finally got it to work. Here's how:

  1. Launch an exiting image (I chose a Fedora 8 image). Modify the /var/www/html/index.html file to something else (thus making it "your unique AMI). I went one step further: I installed JDK 6 and MySQL on mi AMI for use at a later date.
  2. Now you have to upload your private key and x509 certificate to the AMI. Here's how to do …

XenServer 5 with OpenBSD
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Makes it very difficult to read and see what you are doing. As well it appears numerpad with numlock on does not work either. The best work around is to SSH into OpenBSD.
  • Receiving the following error messages at boot up, “clock: unknown …

Virtualizing MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I had so much to say in response to a recent post asking about virtualization from Jennifer Glore that I realized it was long enough to be a blog post.

It really depends on what you’re looking to do. Many companies don’t have the money and staff to have an in-house data center with proper power and network redundancy; others don’t want the depreciation associated with owning computer hardware (even if they leased space in a data center, they’d have to buy equipment to put in it).
