    I did, centos works but seems to have the wrong password, debian and ubuntu are still missing storage.

    Hopefully this gets fixed next week, or I'm out too.

    No NoVNC or VNC. I get a 401 on the NoVNC and a blank black screen with VNC.

    I am wondering why I cannot login, I wonder if they do a provision or something each day using ansible and awx or something, and so it has not been applied yet.

  • augustusgloopaugustusgloop Member
    edited July 2019

    I think the above is correct, and that some provisioning step takes place daily. It had an update timestamp that was within a few minutes of yesterday. I'll confirm that I can login later. Means I've got to do some refactoring myself...

    EDIT: The above is false, still can't get in the password I was sent via email. Anyone else have ideas?

  • Today I was finally able to re-install Ubuntu 18.04 and get in to the VM afterwards and use it.

    Ever since the Ubuntu images had become available again, I had tried re-installing it several times. Each time I would either get a Control Panel error, or it would say "re-install successful", but then I was never able to actually log in to the box (timeout). CPU was at a constant 100%, according to the graph on the control panel.

    But today it finally worked. :)

    It seems that HostSolutions was confused and talked about 2 weeks when it's actually 2 months ...

    Thanks no.

  • I'm curious how bad this provider will need to get before getting banned on LET. Probably need to go full Alpha Racks? What was the breaking point for Cloud at Cost? There's less and less differences each day (except CAC seems to be trying to turn into a better company). There's a lot of writing on the wall being ignored with this provider by users/customers on LET...

  • If you need a quick money lend at no interest, just open an offer, promise it'll be delivered after a couple of weeks and then just refund people!

    Well, kicking HostSolutions out of LET would be a very hard step, too hard in my opinion. After all @cociu didn't force anyone to buy. The true story is simple: Everyone can know that HostSolutions is a lousy provide but they fall for the lure (specials) anyway. I don't see why cociu should be severely punished for the blind and undeserved trust of the people.

    That said, I think that HostSolutions could actually be a decent provider - and even a good one in terms of bang for the buck - if @cociu wasn't so brutally and ignorantly focussed on selling, selling, selling and not giving a damn about quality and support. I mean, many LET providers buy and run pretty much the same 2nd hand servers and HostSolutions connectivity is actually not at all lousy (if and when it works).

    The problem IMO is that people have to wait for weeks sometimes to just get a response from support and that @cociu's management style seems to be "management by 'will be done tomorrow'" (and forgetting tonight due to some sales ideas ...).
    Unfortunately that ignorance runs deep and has led to completely inacceptable issues like servers or VPSs not having (or not having access to) a remote console/KVM which means that many customers end up in front of a concrete wall. No response from support and no means to take care themselves.

    But again: all that isn't new. People can know it (and many do) but they fall for the specials anyway.

    I was a cociu fan for a while my node was on the famous month long fsck ordeal. I patiently waited as a F'ing Lemming

    I came to the conclusion after my shit was constantly down, control panel that wouldn't function or reinstall OS, no response to tickets, I was better off paying a couple extra buck's somewhere else and not having the frustration.

    I think he means well and he has the salesman spirit which you need in business to drive sales.... to many excuses too many modules that are broke

  • Anyone remember this gem of an email announcement that went out about a year ago?

    2) after 02.10.2018 we try to promise maximum 15 minutes in tiketing response ,irrespective of the contracted service, even if it is a low budget, this in the commercial time from 8.00 until 17.00 Monday to Friday, and at night and during the weekend will be a maximum of 3 hours.

    Was on their homepage too. Was subsequently deleted.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

  • I am really sad, but I will quit my server with him. My network has not been usable for like a month now. No response to any ticket. I really loved his servers. Been with him for like 3+ years on the server. Never had any big problems. But right now the server is unusable. I will go for a VPS with him soon, sadly I have 100+ Euros left due to the bonus he sometimes gave out when adding funds to ones account.

    I am really sorry cociu. I did not mean to leave you!

    so much this!

    tbh I am already waiting for the next verrry last offer to pop up, because it's been a month since the last right now and I expect the next $ kick to be needed...
    esp. because refund requests are probably increased much by now. though, selling another 1000x batch of nothing for 20-30$ might help over the next month...

    @Falzo

    I do not think that @cociu basically runs a criminal scheme. I do not think that he creates havoc cold blooded.
    I'm quite confident that he means well and just wants to grow his business - unfortunately I'm also quite confident that he is as weak a manager and technician as he is strong as a sales and growth pusher. I have seen people like that more than once. In the minute they promise to solve a problem they are sincere and mean it but a little bit later they forget it, usually due to bad management and chaos. The real big problem with those people is that they also don't keep promises to themselves. That's why they know that they run a mess and somehow vaguely want to clean it up ... but won't actually do it.

    Theoretically yes, but practically we would need to know how many of his customers are not unhappy. And I guess that's still a large majority.

    I think that everybody would be best off if cociu could somehow be pushed to clean up his mess (like his support) and to run specials with smaller quantities that his company can actually handle. The second thing on which he should be pushed hard is to sell only what he actually has in stock and working properly.

    That should have been the first red flag. I thought it was universally understood around the world selling your sister (or buying) is a pretty scummy thing (hear about this from other Canadians visiting Cuba) and automatically makes you a piece of shit. Sure, say it once as a joke, say it 50 times and you're a piece of shit. It's creepy AF and just not funny. It's 2019, get the message.

    But it's a catch-22. His prices are so low because service and support sucks and needs fresh money. To improve service and support, they need to charge more and hire better people.That's my point about CAC, charging more and actually providing timely service and support. It looks like a complete management change, and cociu just isn't cut out for this business.

    I am cheap and spend a lot of time hunting down deals, but I wouldn't put up with 1/10th of these problems as I value my time more than that.
