comment Commands to manage services and applications in a failover cluster
Thanks! I guess this is because clustered services and applications are groups of resources. Still, that is NOT an intuitive mapping between the UI and the commands!

comment Creating VMs (VMware) Automatically
It uses your own private vCenter instead of pay-as-you go, allows you to define templates, and allows you to automatically run post-create tasks on VMs. It also supports Amazon EC2, and Windows Azure and Rackspace integrations are in beta right now.

comment iptables: delete all rules by interface
I could be wrong but I don't think iptables usually keeps a record of interfaces. If you're using debian/ubuntu, /etc/network/interfaces keeps a record of interfaces and IP addresses, so maybe you could whip up a script that cross-references that?

comment How is it possible to clone a running VM consistently?
If you quiesce the file system when you create the snapshot (there's an option for that) it will pause all running processes, take the snapshot, and then resume them. (assuming you do want to keep the processes running on the clone. if you don't, don't copy the memory or quiesce.) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quiesce

comment How is it possible to clone a running VM consistently?
Have you tried taking a snapshot and creating a linked clone? That would keep it consistent, and linked clones clone quickly. You can choose to capture the current memory or not, depending on what you need.

Okay, thanks. I just didn't know if there was a "best" way to do this (or a standard to follow).
