Setting up EVE-NG

Install

see PXE // EVE-NG

Setup

eventually re-configure the system: re-login as root after clearing that empty file

rm -f /opt/ovf/.configured

note: beware this will re-generate ssh host keys

you can now login remotely. ssh root login is enabled by default

ssh x.x.x.x -l root

get rid of the splash screen

cp -pi /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.dist
vi /etc/default/grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="vga=788"

get rid of the default password hint

cp -pi /opt/ovf/ovfstartup.sh /opt/ovf/ovfstartup.sh.dist
vi /opt/ovf/ovfstartup.sh

#echo "Eve-NG (default root password is 'eve')" > /etc/issue
rm -f /etc/issue
