    Re: Cannot connect to my ubuntu server

    I have a new problem that is most likely causing the problem:

    When I run the command:
    Code:
    systemctl status ssh
    it gives an error code looking like this:
    Code:
    System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
    Failed to connect to bus: Host is down

    On a patched, 20.04 desktop,
    Code:
    $ systemctl status ssh

    is what you'll see.

    Are you on Ubuntu?

    Re: Cannot connect to my ubuntu server

    To clarify, I am running a dual boot system and I am not using Ubuntu desktop, but I am using the Ubuntu server.

    I am using the WSL and it's a dual boot system, with windows running on a separate partition from Ubuntu, but on the same drive. I am not using the desktop version but I am using the server version. Do you think I should switch over to the desktop version?

    Re: Cannot connect to my ubuntu server

    Maybe I have become daft in my seventh decade, but you say you are using WSL ... and Ubuntu is installed in a dual boot. Which is it?

    Or are you thinking that you can be running Windows and SSH into the Ubuntu installation on the same machine? Or to WSL? Or are you trying to SSH from WSL? Are you trying to SSH to a different machine entirely?

    Is it a dual boot or a virtual machine?

    If you have a dual-boot then when you're running Windows you aren't running Ubuntu therefore nothing to connect to.

    Re: Cannot connect to my ubuntu server

    Yep, dual boot means one or the other...never both at the same time.

    You can run Windows, install VirtualBox and create a virtual machine with Ubuntu Server inside of it (using Bridged network adaptor) and you can use Windows to connect to Ubuntu Server which is running in a sub-process of Windows but separately as if on another machine.

    You could also install Proxmox as a hypervisor on the machine, then install Windows as a virtual machine and Ubuntu Server as a virtual machine. Be warned that your Windows license would think it was installing onto a different machine because the machine would have different hardware (Proxmox hardware layer). So if you have Windows license that is "retail" then you can do it with no issue but if you have "oem", it won't activate.
