Everyone, please welcome my daughter Diana into the world.

This guide assumes you already have a running Ubuntu 15.10 system on which you want to configure Xen Orchestra, everything else is documented below.
TL;DR: Run this command as root on Ubuntu 15.10...
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/scottalanmiller/xenorchestra_installer/master/xo_install.sh | bash
During the installation of your OS, you'll want to create a user outside of root, I made my user account xoadmin
How to Install Xen Orchestra Source on Ubuntu 15.10 (self compiled) AKA MANUAL installation
sudo apt-get install --yes nfs-common curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_5.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install --yes nodejs curl -o /usr/local/bin/n https://raw.githubusercontent.com/visionmedia/n/master/bin/n chmod +x /usr/local/bin/n n stable node -v npm -v sudo apt-get install --yes build-essential redis-server libpng-dev git python-minimal git clone -b stable https://github.com/vatesfr/xo-server git clone -b stable https://github.com/vatesfr/xo-web cd xo-server sudo npm install && npm run build cp sample.config.yaml .xo-server.yaml nano .xo-server.yaml #Edit and uncomment it to have the right path to XO-Web, because XO-Server embeds an HTTP server (we assume that XO-Server and XO-Web are on the same directory). It's near the end of the file: # mounts: '/': '../home/xoadmin/xo-web/dist/ # save and exit cd ~ cd ../xo-web sudo npm i firstname.lastname@example.org sudo npm install sudo npm run build cd ../xo-server sudo npm start
The scripted installation thanks to @scottalanmiller
Below is the preferred Installation method. It includes the systemctl xo-server.service written by @Danp
sudo bash <password> sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/scottalanmiller/xenorchestra_installer/master/xo_install.sh | bash <password>
In your favorite web-browser go to this VM's IP Address, login with the default user: email@example.com and "admin" for the password. Update your Login Details!!
Add your Xen Server(s) and go to town.
Automatically Start XO at Boot - See this Post by @Danp Also copied below.
Create a file in /etc/systemd/system/xo-server.service and enter the below into it.
# systemd service for XO-Server. [Unit] Description= XO Server After=network-online.target [Service] WorkingDirectory=/opt/xo-server/ ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/node ./bin/xo-server Restart=always SyslogIdentifier=xo-server [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Save the file, and then run to enable the service at start up.
sudo systemctl enable xo-server.service
To monitor the service you can then run
journalctl -u xo-server -f -n 50
For everyone on the newer releases of the "stable build" at least as of April-8-2016 there appears to be a bug when attempting to mount an NFS share; to resolve this follow the short process below
Replacing nfs-server-ip-address with the actual IP of the remote server and the remote-# with whatever is listed on your console.

@BradfromxByte thank you for dealing with all of the back and forth and kick ass servers.

Damn right, I wouldn't expect anything less, especially after repeat attempts, and a lack of remourse.

@dafyre Honestly though, think back to AOL Messenger, it was dead simple and worked. (granted different era) but you could add people to a room, search for people/content(messages) and do just about everything that it seems Teams is attempting to.
There is nothing special about Teams in the service it offers, and its also so costly to just have access too.
Even NodeBB (this forum) works better for the very same things I've mentioned above.
@dafyre I personally don't like much about it either. It feels like AOL Messenger with how we use it.
The calling feature, is okay but has a practical limitation if you wanted handsets (softphone only boys).
The message tracking/searching is fundamentally flawed, and the chat features are difficult to use, like adding people or doing a basic search for history.
It doesn't need to be this difficult..
I know this is more of an HR problem than an IT problem, but my boss is insisting.
Yeah the ball and chain issue.... I've not found anything decent for iOS either. I tend to just keep the battery on the device low or pretend the battery has died and needs charging.

This is for an older iPAD, I know the newer ones have this built in... but you know $
Dell announced this afternoon that it’s spinning out VMware, a move that has been suspected for some time. Dell acquired VMware as part of the massive $58 billion EMC acquisition (announced as $67 billion) in 2015.
Interesting. I had forgotten that Dell owned VMware in the first place...
VMware kind of feels forgotten altogether at this point, lol. I used to hear about them daily. Now it's like a surprise when they get mentioned.
I deal with VMware daily, it may be a forgotten system in your circle, but it is definitely not a "forgotten product"
