    Thanks for sharing this, it saves me the hassle of downloading the iso, instaling, etc. :-)

    the password is:


    tou can change at first login with “passwd” command. The root password is scrambled, if you want assign one with digit
    sudo passwd root

    tengo un problema no se como levantar la interfaz grafica

  6. @Jeisson
    please comment in english,

    In the server version the graphical interface is not installed, but if you want it is simply but will add a ton of packages ;)
    digit in a terminal:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    Take a coffee.

    About networking.
    I download the image to my Mac but the Ubuntu Server can not accessed Internet.
    The solution: Eth1 is the virtual net card that is working, so:
    – Edit /etc/network/interfaces and replace “eth0″ to “eth1″
    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    – restart the network
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

  8. @ccastillop
    This is an old question of “udev”: you can edit the file
    remove the lines of old network-card, and change to “eth0″ in the appropriate MAC address, then reboot.

    Thanks for your tip,

    after i added the ubuntu server vdi to virtualbox.
    i clicked on start button to start the ubuntu server, then it asked me to login, i entered (ubuntu/reverse) for user name & password. then the following message is displayed:
    welcome to ubuntu.

    your CPU appears to be lacking expected security protection.

    ubuntu@ubuntu-server :~$

    my question: what i can do next?where there is only terminal is displayed? can any one help me.

  10. @eman
    I think that you don’t have PAE enabled on your VM.
    Look here for discussions about lacking security:




    Good luck and enjoy

    I had trouble getting the keyboard to work with my MacBook Air. Apparently the keyboard was set to the wrong layout.

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

    Hope this helps someone!

    • James says:

      It’s set to it(Italian?) and that destroys the keyboard for the us layout. You have to change the layout in /etc/default/keyboard to what ever you need. then do what @emptystacks says. If like me you use the the us layout and use Vim that is total borked and once you edit you can’t ESC to tell it to save. Use pico/nano to change it.

    • @@ron says:

      You can also use:
      loadkeys us

    • Simon East says:

      Just to clarify for users (like myself). To adjust back to standard US keyboard layout, you need to…

      sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard
      And set XKBLAYOUT="us"
      Then CTRL+X and Y to save.

      sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
      And just accept most of the default options that appear on the screen.

      Once it’s finished, your keyboard should work like normal. :-)

  14. Rod says:

    The /etc/resolv.conf file on the 11.10 image contains the following two lines before the usual nameserver command:

    domain adserv.it
    search adserv.it

    Why is this?

  15. @Rod
    Please remove the two lines or substitute it with your domain name, The presence of this lines is only a shortcut for internal domain resolution and are writed by dhcp configuration.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for reporting,

    how to enable remote server access for the virtual ubuntu

    • @jag
      what do you mean enable? Ubuntu server has openssh installed and listen on 22 TCP port, so if you want to access via network, you can use ssh client or putty on windows. If VirtualBox Extension Pack is installed, you can enable remote display on host machine and access via RDP (rdesktop, remmina client).

      • Laszlo, says:

        Could you explain me how can I access through putty my server? I want to set up a simple R server in VirtualBox, but I’ve never done it yet. Maybe you can point me to another website how to set up a simple web server etc.

        Thank you in advance,

  17. Thanks for this fantastic service. Would it be possible to provide checksums of the images to control integrity? In addition, perhaps would torrents be beneficial to get the images.

    I just want to say thank you for the great service you guys are doing to the ubuntu comunuty. Only one comment that might help others that want to use the vb images. I notice about the italian kb layout on the hard way. Can this information be disclosed on the Notes: area?

    • Thanks for the suggestion. The group is composed of Italians guys and during the creation of images, often, for convenience, we set the Italian keyboard.If you want reconfigure, look at the comment #957:
      sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

    What compression routine is used on these images? I downloaded and installed 7-Zip but when I try to extract it I get the following error: Can not open file as archive.

    • @Dave
      All the .7z images are compressed by 7z, often in Linux or under MacOS, whereas last images are released as OVA (Open Virtualization Format). This the best the choice for immediate import in VirtualBox.
      Are you sure that image is not corrupted? Check the md5sum of downloaded image and compare with the same on sourceforce. E.g for the file ubuntu-12.10-server-i386.7z 2012-10-22 218.5 MB, md5sum report the value:


      look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualboximage/files/UbuntuServer/12.10/
      for SHA1 and MD5 values.

      If you want list and check the image, look this:

      $ 7z l ubuntu-12.10-server-i386.7z

  23. Paul Verest says:

    Why, the hell, Ubuntu Linux Server Edition 12.10 x86 has Italian keyboard layout? (‘-‘ under ‘/’) (The same in latest Ubuntu Linux 12.10 x86). While in desktop I could go and change.
    Doing so in server fails because of update server is unavailable. I am in China now.

    I was following http://askubuntu.com/questions/155424/changing-keyboard-layout-in-ubuntu-12-04-server-command-line-interface

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data

    If it says you don’t have the package, then install console-data with:

    sudo apt-get install console-data

    -> Failed to fetch us.archive.ubuntu.com….. Size mismatch

  24. @Paul Verest
    Sorry, but this team is composed of Italians guys and during the creation of images, often, for convenience, we set the Italian keyboard.If you want reconfigure, look at the comment #957:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

    No others packages are requested for download ;)

    What is the super user password for this? I execute the ‘su’ command to gain rights to modify things like /etc/default/keyboard, but I type in the password ‘reverse’ and it doesn’t authenticate.

    • Root password in ubuntu release are always scrambled. If you want use root permissions you have To use ‘sudo’ command.
      To have a root shell you can digit:
      sudo su -
      with ‘reverse’ password.


  27. @Laszlo
    assure that Network of VM is set to bridge, verify it with command:
    VBoxManage showvminfo "ubuntu-13.04-server-i386"|grep -i NIC

    The output show the NIC attached in bridge mode:
    NIC 1: MAC: 080027AA0000, Attachment: Bridged Interface 'eth0', Cable connected: on>

    At this point you can connect to IP of Guest via Putty/ssh

    In NAT mode you obtain an internal IP that is not visible from external network.
