comment How to get variables in one define from another?
Wait, is not that the very purpose of getvar()?..

comment How to get variables in one define from another?
Thanks for the warning -- I will ensure the order base->vhost. But, still, what is the proper way to refer to a particular instance of apache::base with getvar()?

comment How to get variables in one define from another?
The "such a thing is not implemented" is the most valuable part of your answer, Felix. Thank you... But are you sure? Is not getvar() supposed to do just that -- if invoked properly?

comment How to properly configure security group at AWS?
tcpdump on the client lists no responses at all. iptables on the server is fully permissive (no rules whatsoever). Michael, yes, this server is on a VPC -- but with an Elastic IP of its own. What rules should I check? Normally, we don't allow any external traffic to the, so the fact that I'm seeing something reaching this server lead me to believe, I enabled the proper exceptions... No?

Does not say anything -- the initial connection is never established... Tcpdump reports packets arriving to the server and responses being sent, but the client never hears them for some reason. The client is simple command-line ftp el.ast.ic.ip

comment EC2 save mdadm RAID setup in an AMI
You don't want the ephemeral devices be part of your mdadm-managed array. Using ZFS -- with ephemeral device(s) being caches -- should work much better for you. See serverfault.com/questions/663774/…

comment How to best use Amazon's “ephemeral” SSD devices under Linux?
My question asks, whether there is any kind of "best practices" guide already. I list the options I could come up with to prevent people from wasting time relisting them...

comment ephemeral vs EBS partitions
Any idea on [how to distinguish the "ephemeral" volume(s) from the others from inside the VM][1]? Thanks! [1]: serverfault.com/questions/663183/…

comment How to reliably list ephemeral storage of an AWS instance?
Well, there is no /dev/xvdj either -- on this particular instance -- there is only /dev/xvdn.
