comment Pointing AWS EC2 elastic IP to instance in VPC
For what purpose do you need to use the same IP address? Maybe there's a different approach to your problem? Otherwise, you could always setup a webserver with your old IP address to redirect to the new one.

comment Ubuntu OpenVPN GUI setting incorrect default routing gateway
What do your config files look like? I'm guessing the GUI puts them in /etc/openvpn/. Could there be more than one in there?

slow file transfers may indicate a bad hard drive. Have you tried running spinrite on the machine?

Why is it you don't just run one of the updated ami's provided by Amazon?

If the data is worth more than $89 or so, you could try spinrite, which is likely the only thing that could restore the disk on the cheap. grc.com.

comment SSL certificate not found in the drop down list - IIS 7
@HåkanLindqvist I don't know. To me, they look like a site that's trying to sell certificates. Note, though, that I didn't say 'they may not care about security'. I did imply that having a website with TLS, even if the key is known by an unknown third party, is much more secure than having a website with no transport security at all.

comment SSL certificate not found in the drop down list - IIS 7
@HåkanLindqvist I don't recommend it. But I don't want to assume that everyone needs their website to keep a level of security that would preclude the offering of the website. The OP didn't seem to have the skills at the time to do it himself. Maybe, to the OP, the risk of having one third party know the website's private key does not override the advantage of having a website. I don't feel it's my place to make such a call for other people.

@mfinni, you hang in your own circles and have a limited perspective as to what AD can be used for.

comment What's the downtime limit of a domain controller (DC)?
@RobM, with respect, you've offered nothing to back that up. You guys just keep repeating never, like The Raven. If you have a single domain controller with snapshots and backups, and you don't need to be up 80% of the time, there's no reason to have more than one DC. The worst that can happen is you have to restore a previous version of the server.
