InceptionHosting - MiniKVM-768-NL / Ubuntu 16.04 Image not working

Hi there. smile

just got another MiniKVM-768 to setup a GitLab Runner, but I am facing a problem with the provided Ubuntu 16.04 image.
After my VPS got provisioned, I tried to connect and was not successful. So I reinstalled it using SolusVM with the Ubuntu 16.04 image.
However, after a successful reinstall the server is not reachable neither by the forwarded port using v4 nor by the assigned v6 address.
To check if there is something else wrong, I just reinstalled it using the 14.04 image and everything works instantly.
So Anthony, would you mind checking that out? smile

Regards, Bochi

/EDIT1/
Quick additional note: VNC from the control panel doesn't work then, too.

/EDIT2/
It works also fine after a release upgrade. I would prefer a "cleaner" way, though. tongue

The Ubuntu 16 image was actually created for the commercial KVM servers, it works without issue on those, as for a cleaner way, I would suggest install from ISO, which I have just added to the node.

Ah, I get it - nice to know.
I'll go this way then the next time I have to reinstall!
And thanks for the quick reply. smile

Oh interesting.   Littlehappycloud.net forwards to http://lowendspirit.com/locations.html so I figured it wasn't currently available.  But I see I can order from the LET client area:

https://clients.inceptionhosting.com/cart.php?gid=19

Nice!

So much for trying an ISO install (MiniKVM-128, not the one mentioned in the title):

Up to this point everything looks promising, handling the KVM over SolusVM works surprisingly well!
Guess while 128MB of RAM are enough to work with the machine, we got a little bootstrapping problem there! big_smile
Well, then back to 14.04!

You just cant install a 64bit bloated OS on 128mb ram sorry.

I never understand why anyone wants to use Ubuntu on a minimalist service, to me Ubuntu is not even remotley considered for anything with less than 2GB RAM, debian is the right choice smile

Well, I was just playing around with it a little bit. big_smile
I agree in terms of plain Debian for systems on the lower end, however, I would not set the boundary that high - maybe less or equal to 512MB in a KVM.

I thought "Huh, it's not just me."  Didn't see your response, but would have been back to check within 8 hours or so.  big_smile

Thank you!
