I did study math and had a knack for it, but I am sooo out of that business now ...

comment Was my server vulnerable to heartbleed if TLS has been disabled?
You may try some alternativ testers that will tell you whether you would be vulnerable if you still had a bad version of OpenSSL.

comment Bash: mv directory one at a time
Out of curiosity: I would have thought that moving directories within a partition is "instantaneous", no matter how full the directory is?

comment Group Policy “Maximum password age” fails to apply
Sounds good. The value was not 0, but unfeasibly big (999 days). I could not clear the value (causes error 0x2077 WILL_NOT_PERFORM). However, I could at least change it to a smaller value and assume that now this value (instead of the GPO value) will be enforced ... Let's see, how many users will be required to update their password on Monday.

@joeqwerty Yes, I checked (that's the userAccountControl=512 condition). I'll update the question to make this clearer.

comment E-mail lifecycle after it's been sent
To add to @MadHatter's comment, someone using such an external mail service can also forget about impementing several other security features (such as SPF).

In a local net a broadcast ping may give a starting point. But I understand you talk about subnetted ranges with routers inbetween?

comment How to anticipate spanning-tree changes to prevent packet loss during convergence?
Sorry, I just tested this: The moment I increase the cost of a link or remove the cost again, I have packet loss for the usual convergence time ...

comment How to anticipate spanning-tree changes to prevent packet loss during convergence?
So I get it right that setting spanning tree cost will cause reconvergence but since all old and new edges are available at all times, the transition from old tree to new tree is smoothly? Or is there still a (very short) interruption to avoid loops caused during transition by some switches using the old, some the new tree?
