comment Rotating DNS servers specified by DHCP
I wasn't able to track anything down on setting this via sysconfig, so I ended up just rolling it into a template in Chef and setting the nameservers via environment attributes.

comment Rotating DNS servers specified by DHCP
Both of those options are overly complex, and I've already gotten simple resolvers up and running.

comment Can existing clients connect to OpenVPN If I regenerate the server certificate?
Yes, creating a new CA cert will allow only the certificates signed by that cert to connect. Certificates signed by the old CA will be rejected.

comment ntpd default rate limiting?
@dfc yep, most of that config is redundant trash, but that's what the Opscode NTP cookbook generates so I'm stuck with it. I'm adding the requested output now...

comment ntpd default rate limiting?
@Zoredache fired it up on the controller and an instance, and it looks like what I thought was one private network is actually two. One virtual and one actual. The controller is seeing requests only from the compute nodes and not the individual instances. All the requests I generated seemed to be answered as expected, but the troubles come in spurts. I'll fire up tcpdump again once it flares up again.

comment Server-level block, deny, or redirect based on User-Agent?
1. They frequently ignore robots.txt. 2. That's still not server-wide. 3. For clarity, I downvoted.

comment Is there an order that users appear in the /etc/group file?
Clarification: By the date the group was added. Adding a user to a pre-existing group does not change the original order of the entries.

comment Spamassassin internal DNS resolution?
@MichaelHampton RackSpace, no. DNSBL providers, yes. Instead of seeing a few thousand queries coming from my servers, these providers are seeing a few million queries from every server RackSpace hosts that is using SpamAssassin with default settings. This brings us well into the "give us money" range.
