comment What are Exchange IMAP capabilities?
Pretty accurate. The only issue with Exchange IMAP in certain cases is the violation of the RFC822.SIZE value. It can corrupt attachments with certain clients (e.g. Thunderbird). Fix/workaround here. Oh, and "Go Illini"!

comment Can you create physical loopback on 2 ports NIC?
And @bobb, you should be more gracious towards those trying to assist you with such a narrowly-scoped issue. I'm from the industry and think there may be some better resources for you elsewhere. The issues you're talking about have been solved in some respect.

You didn't mention that this switch was a stack member. Update your initial question with this info.

comment Centralized virtualization (ESXi, XenServer) in a completely Windows-free environment
But not yet as of this writing... And that's the point. I suspect that the OP will end up having to wait for a suite that caters to his needs.

Sounds a bit religious, to be honest. VMWare and Xenserver really want a Windows administration platform. Even Red Hat's RHEV product needs a Windows client. I understand that you've not had to use Windows up until this point, but that's where the mainstream target is (from the vendor perspective).

Your php is from the REMI repository. Try running the yum install ImageMagick to see if it works. If not, see if there's a corresponding package in that repository.

comment Disk IO slow on ESXi, even slower on a VM (freeNAS + iSCSI)
I have a bunch of 1TB 4K-sector disks being used with ZFS. Local performance was awful until I realigned/formatted with a modified version of zpool. These disks are common at the consumer level these days. Newer operating systems (including VMWare) can recognize and align properly. But special care needs to be taken with ZFS. The original poster never provided the hard drive make/model, so we don't know for sure.
