comment Mac OS X 10.8.5 adding to Windows Domain
@MDMarra probably in the terminal. The hostname is pulled from a DNS lookup there and is part of the prompt, and Macs don't update Windows DNS entries. So they often inherit a previous lease owner's name.

comment How to fix geometry of two identical disks?
That's true. I was synonymizing LBA and geometry. But it still can't be changed. :-)

comment How to fix geometry of two identical disks?
I thought geometry is a physical thing, so you can't "change" the geometry. That said, if the capacity matches, you should be able to mirror the volumes or create a mirror where the max size of the mirror is the size of the smaller capacity drive...

comment Thoughts about a simple way to check remote updates lists and updating remote servers
To clarify what you're doing...this is a mostly hobby interface you are putting together, and you're looking into adding the ability to update your monitored servers from said interface. But you talk about killing your margins...are these servers used as a business? So the interface is a hobby project integrated into your business systems?

Don't worry about the English; if something is unclear, people should ask for an explanation.
