comment Monitoring server room power
Also note that iLO/DRAC/IPMI power monitors are reading the output from the power supply to the motherboard. Add about 20% for an 80Plus certified power supply. Also also note that power on readings will be much higher than normal usage for all modern machines.

comment Suggested Linux partitions layout for an LAMP server?
Yeah, that sucks. I suppose that's to be expected. Luckily the Internet Archive has a copy: web.archive.org/web/20080609200241/http://sial.org/howto/…

That gives you a shell on the local computer, not the remote one.

comment What is the failure rate of servers being moved physically from one location to another?
I've had to make similar justifications to C-level management, they love this sort of thing. If you have 55 servers, you have some sort of configuration management in place so re-creating everything will be next to trivial. What part of this would you not take seriously?
