comment Best practices for file layout in a Hyper-V server?
@BenjaminPeikes Spaces often require quoting in command line parameters and scripts - its not a big deal, but if you can save yourself the hassle...

comment Best practices for file layout in a Hyper-V server?
@BenjaminPeikes Relying on the XML files to match files to VMs is risky. I have had cases where either through accidental deletion or data corruption the XML files were gone or unreadable. Also, it's just plain faster than matching GUIDs up. But I agree you don't necessarily need to use the VM name in the filename, just the folder if you prefer. Just make sure that - by looking at nothing but the file structure - you can tell which files belong to which VM and what purpose they serve.

comment Do Equallogic PS6010s accept non-EQL firmware disks?
Some Dell devices will work with non dell drives but loose features like health monitoring. Some just refuse to use the drives. So even if you do try it with non dell drives check if it monitors their health properly. Not being notified about impending disk failures is bad.

comment Best practices for file layout in a Hyper-V server?
I disagree. From experience, there are some good technical reasons to have a naming convention where you can identify which disks belong to which VMs from outside of the Hyper-V tools. One of his options doesn't allow you to do that easily - or at all, if the hyper-v XML files are corrupt, which can happen.

comment How to setup a group profile based for terminal server via LDAP?
Group Policy Preferences may be of great use here as well, since they can easily be setup to target specific user groups without creating a bunch of separate policies.

comment Debian ethernet interface goes down while streaming video
Do you have managed switches? If so do the logs for that switchport show anything? Its unlikely to be spanning tree problems, but if it is that is where you will see the evidence.

comment Linux Authentication by Active Directory without joining to domain
Could you not just adjust you imaging system to append an L or something to the hostname when applying the image? Or have a script in the os image that makes the change before it joins the domain?

comment About digital signatures. Are they really secure?
@Peregring-lk The secure channel is only one way. For signing, someone signing something with your public key means absolutely nothing, since everyone has the public key. But signing with your private key (which you have, hopefully, kept private) means you signed it. For encryption, you encrypt with my public key. Only the my private key will decrypt it. Having my public key lets you verify I sent a signed message, or send me an encrypted message. But it does nothing to show who sent me that encrypted message, or who reads my signed message.

comment About digital signatures. Are they really secure?
@Peregring-lk even with the updated question, I'm still not sure why you believe someone can get the private key. Can you please explain how you think a person you send a message to gets the private part of the key?

From a security point of view, even if you can do it, you really really shouldn't.

The usb 1 port you see in lspci is likely from idrac - all the real ports should be usb 2.
