comment Unable to change shutdown event tracker group policy; not on a domain
What's weirder is that on my other Win7 machine, the Group policy is there and the registry key is only there when I turn on the tracker. So I don't know why my server2033 machine does not have the registry key but still uses the tracker.

I also don't have a PolicyDefinitions folder anywhere on my system.

comment Unable to change shutdown event tracker group policy; not on a domain
I don't have that key/value. In HKLM\Software\microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Reliability I have sub keys (sub "folders") of "Shutdown" and "UserDefined". and In neither Reliability, Shurdown, or UserDefined is there a value with the name "ShutdownReasonUI".

Do you know the registry entry for this?

comment Why does ipv6 not specify a protocol version?
That's not quite the field I was talking about. I'm not talking about which version of the IP protocol being used. In IPv4 there is a "protocol" field at byte 9. For example, it could be the value of 6 which would mean that the data itself is using TCP.

comment CMD - Rename Local Computer, Join Domain, Join Specific OU
So... Run the WMIC command, and then run NETDOM? both in the same script. Does that work?

comment CMD - Rename Local Computer, Join Domain, Join Specific OU
hmmm, good point. does execution of the WMIC command automatically and instantly reboot computer? or is there a flag to prevent that? (I'm sorry if all I'm asking are obvious questions right now, but I'm hoping that even dialoging might help you troubleshoot it).

comment How to unbind nginx (or any process) from a port?
So maybe this is too complicated of a question, but how is the port mapping operationally stored? as in: is the port mapping simply some data structure in RAM under kernel access only? otherwise I would assume that there is some theoretical way for root user to force changes.

In addition, don't forget that whatever you type on most shells will be stored in a history file somewhere (like .history).

comment How to unbind nginx (or any process) from a port?
I actually wanted to if there was a general way to unbind ports irrelevant of what the process was. I would have rather eliminated the specifics and kept it general, but oh well. Do you know if I should ask the general question as another question, or revert this question?

What's the difference between ClusterSSH and GNU screen? or are they different implementations of the same concept?

htop is a "better" version of top.

The best I can do is google the same question. Would centrify.com/directcontrol/grouppolicy.asp work for you?

comment duplicity fail: not promping for password: “Running 'sftp user@host' failed”
and by examples, I'm including the first one on the man page that also doesn't have the FTP_PASSWORD env var or --ask-pass. how does their example ever work?

comment duplicity fail: not promping for password: “Running 'sftp user@host' failed”
Thanks! If this command is required for scp:// protocol to work, then why are there no examples that use it? what other way is there to use scp:// and not require --ssh-askpass such that no one uses it in examples. Would the fact I'm not on a LAN make a difference?
