comment What is the recommended way to version VMware Templates?
What do you do to find the balance? And if you have different baselines how do you manage versions of those baselines? One approach would simply be to create a template for every major milestone, e.g. an OS service pack or critical update. Those do not come along that often.

Applications and their versions are growing exponentially, so this would quickly become a pretty big mess.

You've helped me a bit. If you fix your answer, I'll mark this as answered.

This worked for me to enable the firewall sed -i 's/^\(ENABLED=\s*\).*$/\1yes/' /etc/ufw/ufw.conf

Will give it a try. The first sed statement seems invalid. The second works. Since the ufw command line actually modifies /lib/ufw/user6.rules and /lib/ufw/user.rules I'm going to replace those files and use sed to enable ufw.conf.

Tried it. Commands are executed, but calling UFW has no effect.

comment Understanding the S.M.A.R.T. values from a Synology 1812+ device
I do have Seagate drives. The drives are relatively new and the messages have stopped, but it is usually a different drive. The Synology 1812+ device runs smart tests once a week automatically and notifies me if there were problems. The links were very helpful.
