comment How secure are passwords with under 20 characters length?
I have direct experience to the contrary. One app I wrote used 4 word passphrases; it was in use for about a year and a half. 9 years after it had been decomissioned, I talked to several different people who used it and all of them remembered their passphrases. Mine was bilingual extradite propaganda renumber

According to wikipedia, the LM hashes don't have a salt. MD5 passwords do have a salt, which means that any single password may have (saltspace*password) hashes, which means you need to have 1 rainbow table per salt.

If you're not afraid of scripting and using the CLI tools you don't need vault but vault makes it far easier.

comment Prevent VRRP Master from becoming Master once it has failed
The voted answer is correct for a general deployment of vrrp where you don't want a master to take over when it returns to service. As you say, there is also a keepalived way of doing this which is probably more correct for when doing linux HA stuff instead of just using vrrp to provide L3 redundancy for a default route (the more traditional reason for using vrrp).

I agree - it is a bit of work and it's annoying that NB doesn't offer better tools to manage the duplication of backup images, but it also solves a bunch of other problems, and NB actually works very nicely with disk-based backup images. Especially given that there aren't any license issues with disk based backups and disk based storage is so cheap, it does make a nice architecture if you start with it in mind. (clients -> disk -> tape(s))

If your password were "bowels dungeon metaphysical pierce stagnates" you'd probably be able to remember it after using it a couple times.
