This can be easily done by using NFS. You'll have to install a NSF server on your host (very easy) and then mount the directory on the guest. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NFS

With KVM (but not Xen) you can now use Macvtap instead of bridging. So you don't actually have to tear down the host's network stack and bring it back up with a bridge. Macvtap works by piggybacking on an existing ethernet interface. It will make your ethernet interface listen on an additional MAC address and it will "steal" the incoming packets addresses ...

There are (at least) two different concepts here, routed vs. bridged setups. If by virtual bridge you mean one that does not have eth0 (or any NIC) as bridge port, you're looking at a routed setup where you don't have to delete the default configuration for eth0, but you have to set the proper routes for everything. In a bridged setup on the other hand, ...

The problem is solved by changing Windows Firewall settings in Guest OS (Windows), and adding an exception for port 80 to the list.

So /var/www/public_html is actually as Windows folder, but /var/www/data is not?  You're trying to create a symbolic link from a Windows directory into a Ubuntu directory in a virtual machine.  There's no way that Windows can support an object like that.

Debian provides CD/DVD images that you can use as package installation sources after the OS installation: http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/7.8.0/amd64/iso-dvd/ Mind you that the link is for the (still) current stable release, Wheezy. The next stable release, Jessie, is expected within a few days so if you're not pressed for time you might wish to wait ...

Adding a mail server to an existing server should have no significant impacts. Other than resources required, the software will not interfere with other services. A few things to consider: Do you have a static IP address? If not many servers will consider your email spammish. Can you get the PTR record set to the sub-domain you will user for the mail ...

The curr_* are the values for the running LPAR, then change when you use dynamic partition operations (DLPAR). For example: lets say your LPAR profile defines desired_procs as 2, when your LPAR is activated the value for curr_desired_procs will be the same, 2. Now, lets say, you execute a DLPAR operation to change the desired procs to be 3. In that case ...

To have possibility to run virt-manager correctly on the same machine as you'd like to control it (locally), you'll need to install the following packages: qemu-kvm qemu-img virt-manager libvirt libvirt-python python-virtinst libvirt-client virt-install virt-viewer Re-check if they are all correctly installed on your server, or simply run the following ...

I have done it: hypervisor=`dmesg --notime | grep -i hypervisor | cut -d ':' -f2 | tr -d " \t\n\r" echo "Hypervisor is $hypervisor" It helps on scripts

Visualization is usually a better choice the "two desktops". But that may no always be true. First you must determine if what you can do can be virtualized. Office products and other such low load things should be just fine. High CPU tasks usually work fine. High ram tasks are usually ok, but could be a problem if you don't have the over head to run both ...

The /var/spool/mail/ is the folder that mail is saved as a file as /var/spool/mail/$USER. when you call mail it will by default read that file. all read mails will be stored in mbox file and you can access them using mail -f ~/mbox.

Sometimes in a fresh day you see things differently... I've added all users to group vboxsf. Not that I find the solution particularly elegant (I'd accept a better answer if somebody posts it). But it works and I don't quite see the harm on it. There were two users in the vm beside oracle, their ids are: davfs2and dm. No idea what's their use.
