comment Creating the exact size FS on xfs
Hm, but Thin Provisioning that is never going to be used would sound like a nice idea. What about this: See how large a thin provisioned disk really grows, then start from scratch with a thick provisioned disk of that size?

comment Why are ipv6 dhcp leases also given also to static interfaces?
At the risk of sounding stupid, but I'm getting more confused by the minute. I don't see flags anywhere. After reading a bit, it seems that these flags should come with a prefix information option (26) in DHCPv6. No such option can be configured for server or range on my Win2012 DHCPv6 server, and in fact the option would mostly correspond to the range itself anyway and the range properties are: preference, some dynDNS related stuff, preferred/valid lease time. There is no such thing as "autonomous" or "manual" or "other" there.

Why not have the "stupid" client use a different port?

comment Why are ipv6 dhcp leases also given also to static interfaces?
Upon second thought I think the real question behind my question is: Would it be safe / useful /best practice to simply let even the DHCP server itself acquire its address solely voa DHCP (so from itself) without there being a bootstrapping conundrum ... ?

Yes, most of the time I think IPv6 is just a more-bits version of IPv4 :) get-netipaddress tells me that the origin of th addresses is dhcp, which I alreday knew. - Not sure what my router has to do with it, it does not have IPv6 activated (yet)

comment What happens when legacy browser or OS attempts to acces https site with SHA-2 certificate
If you have to look so hard for it, do you even have to bother? Really, XP is one year out of business and SP3 was released 7 years ago

Does anyone concerned about encryption and security even have a Windows XP (with or without SP3)?

Actually, also on linux chances are that your /etc/resolv.conf has a line # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
