0. amd64 Kaby Lake 4core 32GB DRAM, NVMe.
1. Using netinst ISO 2019-05-13 image
2. On "gateway" LAN side.
3. GUI install, in Japanese.
4. Base installation: go
5. Profiles: "main server" and "workstation"
6. GRUB installation: NG

    I installed on NVMe but the installer confused
    about GRUB install destination.

Like expected. IIRC, Debian Edu defaults to /dev/sda...

To make matter worse, I forgot to remove another SATA SSD, too.

I thought that box has only one NVMe,
but actually had a SATA SSD.

That mean, for me, /dev/sda was not a glitch; there was a SSD.

BTW, simply go back and then /dev/nvmep0n1 appeared in the list.
I think it's not so much problematic.
(I missed to confirm the logs in tty4, sorry.)

9. Internet connection: NG

Is 'gateway' pingable?

No. I was attempting to fix and reboot the "gateway" many times.
During that, I noticed /etc/network/interface became funny,
as I described in the gateway report reply.


* Installation on amd64 Debian Edu Buster "main server"
   with "workstation" profiles seems OK,
   in a localnet under the amd64 Debian Edu "gateway".

   I'll do Internet connection stuff later.

* Japanese desktop seems fine; no character corruption.

* Japanese Input seems okay.

Very nice.

Thanks again for your detailed report.


Overall, It seems,

1. I should re-install the gateway as you told me; no-expert mode,
   no reduction. Use GUI "Minimal" install mode and then follow
   the manual description precisely; no more, no less.

   Perhaps after few days; I need time for other messy stuffs,
   and now in HDMI-cable shortage with length-limitations.

   That means, every time I install/manipulate gateway, I need cable
   and machine positional replacements in my rack, physically.

   In short, give me some more time.

2. Perhaps "main server" would be kept as it is.
