comment What is the best FREE VNC client and server compatible with Windows 7 and 2008 Server?
-1: You'd have to put absolutely no effort for uberweb to not tell you about remoting software. I would love to throw a link at you, but I think the spirit of this forum requires you to put effort first before asking off other people.

revised Single/Mulitple LUN for massive VM hosting
Question is specific to running VMs on VMware hypervisor with ESX being the consumer of iSCSI LUNS. It should be tagged with VMware, ESX and VMFS tags as well.

comment Design a DNS Master/Slave with SVN
Have you investigated dynamic updates? You can have a key pair per user and allow them to dynamic update the DNS. If you want multiple servers to be serving the same zone, you can have one of them (generally called the stealth primary) dynamically update the others. Unless you want to track the precise changes each user made, managing with SVN is an overkill and you'll be re-inventing the wheel. You can freeze the zone on a regular basis, copy the zone data and commit into source control. Write a script for that or work something out with Rancid.

Contd... 2) Do the same test, but now with both clients on different VLANs (not VLAN 1). Test that each can get to the next logical hop and progress hop to hop. 3) Put one device on VLAN 1 and do the hop to hop test both ways.

comment Layer 3 switch routing
You'll have to explain your suspicions. You see, you have two routers for each VLAN, which isn't wrong for the transition period as long as both the devices can communicate to each other in layer 2 that they should be able to because they are trunked. So, I'd suggest that the next debugging steps be: 1) Connect a device to the L3 switch and another to the router. Put both on the same VLAN and make sure they can see to each other. Do that for each VLAN on the L3 switch. Change VLAN on both ends to be the same when doing so. Contd...

Can you print the routing table on the L3 switch and the router and post it here?

comment Layer 3 switch routing
I think the OP is migrating machines from having the router as the gateway to the L3 switch as the gateway. What you say seems to be the OP's ultimate goal. However, from purely a functional perspective, I don't see anything wrong with the OP having the router and the L3 switch on all the same VLANs.

comment Layer 3 switch routing
What are the port configurations to which your clients are connected? Are the ports tagged, untagged or trunked (client does the encapsulation/tagging and can access multiple vlans)? I need this data because VLAN 1 is the default VLAN. But other VLANs require tagging from the client end or forced tagging from the switch's end.

comment Disk IO slow on ESXi, even slower on a VM (freeNAS + iSCSI)
One other test you should do is to attach the iSCSI LUN as an RDM to the VM and write to the RDM attached LUN with 2x(VM RAM + SAN RAM) data.

comment How to copy directory from one Linux server to another with a minimum in-between period?
As an addition to poige's answer, I'll recommend the OP using the lockfile command that is part of the procmail set of tools to lock access to the directory from readers. lockfile or a similar tool will need to be used by the writer and the reader. That way the data presented to the reader is consistent and not in the middle of an update.

comment Failing back from DNSSec to regular DNS
I just tried to find out and there isn't a public version available. If you check with RIPE NCC, Nominet, IIS.se and others that have implemented DNSSEC, you'll be able to get your hands on documents such as www.ficora.fi/attachments/5uBFz9cFs/DNSSec_in_Sweden.pdf and docstoc.com/docs/110603422/RIPE-NCCs-DNSSEC-Deployment to start you off.
