comment Fix overwritten LVM physical partition
I just remembered something..the rest of you forgot: debugfs linux.die.net/man/8/debugfs :_debugfs [ -Vwci ] [ -b blocksize ] [ -s superblock ] [ -f cmd_file ] [ -R request ] [ -d data_source_device ] [ device ] _-w is for rw opens. -c for catastrophic mode. This is what I sort of had in mind with dd before people started dv'ing for fun: serverfault.com/questions/219234/lvm-dd-lvm

I suggested the live cdrom, which can inspect a broken. Particularly, "Ultimate boot cdrom" which includes Part Magic....which you boot from a menu... It would have been helpful if you had said whether or not this was a data or os partition. apt-get is the LAST thing I would have suggested.

Do you know if specific examples, like GigaEthernet and beyond, where this would be the result of auto-negotiation? This post maybe a duplicate : google.com/…

He did this while, it was mounted. So under a flag of caution, why not INSPECT the disk via a live session like Partition Magic... why not give the original poster some idea what to look for...?

what part of FDISK is unclear? dd from partition magic would at least allow the poster to get some of the data back...

I would like you to take at the 2nd answer where I discuss parted magic distro for solving this problem (aka a linux live distribution) and tell me what in it deserves a downvote?

comment Forwarding IPv6 traffic
Well for starters, the '::' means this is a sequence of zeros. /3 means netmask for the route. 2000 is a routing prefix. See simipledns.com/private-ipv6.aspx for your own ipv6 routing prefix.

comment multi-backends haproxy best practices
What I am trying to say is http is dependent on dns, unless you give an explicit address: eg <code>"127.0.0.1 "</code>. DNS is typically configured with a primary and a secondary server (google's eg 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4). This should not require a failover on your part. What you do seem to need is forwarding or tunneling. Tunneling can be done with ssh.

IP Port 80 is an application layer service aka Layer 7 in 7 layer network model. DNS is layer 3. Keeping these layers separate is VERY important. see this image:google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.lensenet.com/OSI_Model/…

There are a few DNS records ... ? What type of records? SRV? AAAA? see:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DNS_record_types Second problem/personal peeve: You use the pronoun it, bad idea in "IP port 80 and then it"

comment Redundant Database
I did find pablowe.net/2010/04/pci-dss-mysql-requirement-3. Oracle has all sorts of Point-in-time and recover-in-x-blocks. Multiple destinations are also easy under oracle. I know. I have/had an Oracle certification but they are under serious fire.
