comment Bind9 on Ubuntu - SERVFAIL
You only configured facultyportal.test.edu, not facultyprotal.nwcu.edu. Did you run rndc reload or restart named after updating the zone file?

comment Using sar to produce data to graph cpu utilization
If you are going to graph, use something that natively supports it like munin or graphite.

comment Managing thousands of machines with approval controls
If giving someone the ability to do a software deployment and giving them access to sensitive data is the same, then there is an issue with your deployment strategy.

comment Managing thousands of machines with approval controls
Why does the "approval" need to be implemented in the deployment software? Why are not producing binary builds and instead performing builds on all the nodes you are deploying to? Are you already using CI software such as jenkins or bamboo? Your deployment should be a single command (running the deployment script).

comment How install libgnutls.so.26 on Centos 7.1?
Adding the EL6 version of rpmforge to a EL7 system is asking for a broken server.

comment Set up containers using systemd-nspawn
Like docker, systemd-nspawn is just a layer over lxc. What OS are you on that has systemd but not lxc support?

comment CentOS 7: Nginx systemctl hangs on start, why?
Admin installed unit should go in /etc/systemd, not /usr/lib/systemd (but that wouldn't cause your issue). You should add the contents of your unit file.

comment CentOS7 - Chef(open source) setup error
github.com/hw-cookbooks/runit/issues/74 Looks like chef doesn't officially support RHEL/CentOS 7, which is pretty unfortunate since it's nearly a year old.

comment CentOS7 - Chef(open source) setup error
You installed the package for CentOS 6, which has a different init system than CentOS 7.

comment where to download vagrant boxes
That should be high enough. Try vagrant init ubuntu/trusty64; vagrant up --provider virtualbox.

comment What's the simplest way of installing Tomcat7 via Puppet with dependencies?
You will have to work it out manually. Something in the install chain in likely broken. Unfortunately, apt doesn't do a good job of reporting where the actual problem is.

comment What's the simplest way of installing Tomcat7 via Puppet with dependencies?
You shouldn't have to write the apt dependencies manually anyways. Something in your apt is probably broken (or you need an apt-get upgrade). The number of external puppet dependencies really shouldn't matter. You should use something like r10k or puppet-librarian.

Why not use the puppetlabs/tomcat and puppetlabs/java modules?

mcollective is better for this kind of scenario.

comment How can the little guys effectively learn and use Puppet?
I work in a small company and I also run puppetd -t for testing on a couple boxes before pushing to all the servers. It never fails that a couple have something unique that causes my updates to fail on them. Puppet is a lot easier when you have a controlled and consistent environment for the beginning.

comment What is the right place for default gateway in CentOS/RHEL?
Why is that current convention? I have always used "/etc/sysconfig/network". It seems logical, since a host should only have a single default gateway, and not a different one for each interface. That's what route-ethX would be used for.

comment Find command exclude files whose path match a certain pattern
Good note on ls, but you should include the alternatives such as ls -ld and simply -ls to find. Both should work since the question is tagged Linux.

comment How to mass move files one directory up
its still bad practice, you could have just have easily done this with -exec bash -c '....'. Not everything in /home has to be a user's home directory.
