    Re: login and password vmdk

    Well, whoever created it would need to provide the userid and password. Ubuntu sets those during the install based on inputs by the installer. There is no default.

    Do you really want to trust someone else's setup? I think that is a bad idea. Just do the install yourself into your VM hypervisor. Should take 10-15 minutes, tops.

    It uses the userid and password signed up to get ubuntu core, I think.
    The Ubuntu Cloud image can be run on your personal Ubuntu Cloud, or on public clouds that provide Ubuntu Certified Images.
    Try using your landscape account? I don't have one - call it a personal privacy consideration - can't test. sorry.

    You can just install any ubuntu (desktop or server flavor) into any VM, install ssh or ssh-server and play with ssh as much as you like between any two systems.
    ssh is one of the top 5 things to know on computers. https://blog.jdpfu.com/2014/09/23/yo...h-about-sshhas a small list of things ssh allows.

    The Ubuntu Cloud image can be run on your personal Ubuntu Cloud, or on public clouds that provide Ubuntu Certified Images.
    That seems to be true. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...d-server-image has a solution. Appears that setting the login credentials is expected by the cloud provider. For someone new trying to run that image on their local VM, it will be too hard.

    Just do a normal 20.04 Ubuntu or Xubuntu install, then do these things:
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
    sudo apt install ssh fail2ban
    Those commands will get you fully patched, some proprietary drivers loaded, then install and activate the ssh-server daemon. Probably need to reboot the system for any new kernel updates to be used. Once a week, run the first 2 commands to stay patched.

    From a different system, you can use ssh or putty or any ssh client to connect by IP address to your username/password created as part of the install process.
    From a Unix client, you'll probably want to run ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id to create then push ssh keys to the other system for key-based authentication. Life is much better that way. Doing something similar is possible from Windows, but harder because the shell sorta ... just sucks.

    Which link doesn't work? My blog only blocks subnets where someone attacked first. Right now, 6951 subnets are blocked. If your subnet is on one of those, I'm sorry. Maybe google's cache or the wayback machine would work? Also, my web servers only support TLS 1.3, so clients on v1.2 and earlier don't work. The TLS change drastically reduced (100x fewer) the number of attacks from 1 specific country.

    Run the command from the error message:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a

    Don't mind me, I'm only passing through.

    sudo apt full upgrade is NOT the command. Use the correct one.
    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall works here on 20.04 and 18.04. I suspect the vmdk file is pre-customized for typical VMware ESXi hardware.

    However, regardless, when someone posts commands with a clear order to them, stop doing anything if one of them fails. DO NOT ATTEMPT THE NEXT COMMAND! Bad things can happen. In this situation, I doubt anything bad happened, but I've never touched the version you are using.

    Hopefully, someone else with experience for the exact vmdk will reply.

    Is there a reason you don't just get a desktop or server ISO and install that? Installs are 10-15 minutes of effort into a VM. I'm confused what lead to picking the vmdk file?

    yes i downloaded an iso image from http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/bionic/ that would be the same according to the version, this version I use but the other version https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/bionic/ is directly open ssh you don't know login password not, anyone knows why
