comment Download big files from ESXi?
even copying from a machine on the local gigabit network is horribly slow (says 996 minutes remaining... for 24GB = 0.5 MB/s :D wtf ESXi.... (60 GB sparse = 1.25 MB/s)) but this NFS thing is fast enough (maybe 22 min for 15GB = 11 MB/s (60 GB sparse = 45 MB/s)), so thanks for the idea

comment Backup solution for road warriors
I agree. Burp is great. And FYI you need working_dir_recovery_method=resume in the config to resume an interrupted backup. It has a ratelimit. It uses SSL. It works with a VPN (as should any). But it sounds complicated to split directories on different servers... split per user instead.

comment Apache Virtualhosts Permission Denied. Tried everything I can come up with
I second the use of only g+rx or o+rX instead of setting the user as the owner. The server doesn't need to modify the files, so using the principle of least privilege, it should not be allowed to do so. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principle_of_least_privilege

comment File transfering from Windows 2008 R2 to Windows 7 client is tremendously slow
Try a different machine (laptop for example) on the same cable he is using. And make sure to test multiple hosts across your 700 Mbps link. You have to find the point where there is a problem... only knowing it's between that machine and the other building doesn't help.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 mdadm issues on boot
is it degraded? (in normal, non-manually-fixed ubuntu setups [raid1, metadata 0.90 maybe 1.0], won't boot degraded due to a grub bug that is forever ignored), and the result is random, but I haven't seen that one.

comment How do I change multiple linux servers' /etc/fstab simultaneously
I didn't say it was a good idea ;) I just said it was a hackish idea. And I provided it despite that because there is no fstab.d or equivalent, so I'm sure there will be no perfect answer.

comment How do I change multiple linux servers' /etc/fstab simultaneously
This replaces your whole file. I wouldn't do that. Why would I want custom stuff like that, one file per server, in a mass deployment tool? Is that what this does? I strongly prefer a thing like fstab.d (which doesn't exist) to allow having just one small addition.

comment Switch crazyness
I agree with kasperd on that being a bad assumption. If you are adding switches that don't understand VLANs / aren't configured, it would seem wise to have them attached only to ports set as untagged/pvlan ports.
