The reason for doing this is that the installer doesn't seem to work properly for LUKS and the server installer doesn't even support LUKS anymore. When you use the GUI install on Desktop for LUKS it won't boot and will just hang after you enter your password. So the only reliable way is to do it ourselves.
1.) Make a default minimal install of Ubuntu
2.) Have a secondary disk on the server or VM.

I have seen this in a few rare cases after a reboot, where all folders and files will have the Read Only Attribute. If you uncheck it, it will just come back. It is more of a filesystem issue in Windows than a configuration issue and it looks like when Windows detects a badly corrupted filesystem that it will make things read-only, sort of like Linux would.
If you are Administrator or the owner of the folder and this is happening it is probably due to the reasoning mention........
The strange thing is that usually the first install or two will work on any new machine but then it suddenly won't. I had this experience on QEMU 2.13 on a different machine. There is something finicky or buggy about the CUCM installer even when choosing the same virtual hardware specs.

2,6,A or E is what the second digit of your MAC address must be otherwise a lot of OS's will not work. They will say the NIC is down/not connected even though it is.
This is because if the second digit is not set properly it will not view as a valid MAC or device uplink. This is especially an issue with VMs whether in QEMU etc.. if you are making your own MAC.
MAC address is invalid

Did you just install the minimal version by accident or want to install the GUI? No need to reinstall just tell yum to do the work for you!

Here is the scenario you or a client have a remote machine that was installed as a standard/default minimal Centos 6.x machine on a single disk with LVM for whatever reason.

In some cases on a remote system you can't easily reinstall without physical or KVM access.
So in this case you add a second physical or disk or already ha........

I've only ever seen this in Ubuntu for some reason and it is because of the /etc/nsswitch.conf settings.
