comment Can a root server delegate specific subzones of a domain to different nameservers?
@Kondybas solution is correct - it does not, however, show optional TTL's which can be specified (I guess because this is not the question). The caching nameserver will ask the authorative server for the zone information, and cache that, and it will traverse that tree - ie it will cache the NS record for each subdomain and then look it up as required assuming the TTL for that zone has expired.

comment When should I consider a 2 socket motherboard for Server?
Sorry, I flagged this question as primarily opinion based, and it is thus not really suitable for SU. I'll try answer it though.

comment Tunnel all traffic through N http proxies
You havn't specified enough information to provide a meaningful answer, and, with respect, this question probably belongs on a different site - maybe Superuser ? If you can use iptables, why would you not simply set up a VPN for your routing ? What is your intended goal ? I strongly suspect you have chosen a sub-optimal tool for the job.

comment issue in increasing disk size in ubuntu guest vmware
Please provide the output of pvs; vgs; lvs - This will provide a summary of your Logical Volume Setup. It seems to me that you have not set up volume group or logical volume - indeed it looks to me like your VM is not using logical volumes which means your approach can not work.

comment Remotely monitoring ISC DHCP Server with Nagios
Thanks for the tip of dhcpdump - I've played arround some more and realised I am missing something with respect of the protocol. If I use DHCPING with the same details - and from a device with the same mac address as I specify on the command line it works, otherwise it doesn't.

comment Remotely monitoring ISC DHCP Server with Nagios
Thanks for your answer, but I don't understand how this can help me - when I try and do DHCP lookups FROM THE DHCP SERVER they don't appear to be working. IE this does not appear to be an issue with Nagios or plugins, rather its a question of "how do I query the DHCP server".

comment postfix mails (works) to all but my domain on debian
@HBrujn In what way does it not answer the question ? I would have throught it a direct answe to the question " I have a feeling that if I change the domain of the machine to something other than mine (and that is OK with me) it will start to work fine. I have tried doing this but think that I missed one. " - ie I'm asserting that this setting in his config is incorrect and fixing that will fix his problem.

comment Exchange with Postfix MX for technical accounts in same DOMAIN
Don't do this. Even if it is technically possible you are making a world of pain for yourself whenever something needs to be updated or goes wrong.

comment SSH Negotiation Failing To some sites
I've found a workaround - by specifying MACs=hmac-md5 in /etc/ssh/ssh_config or passing it as a parameter with -o lets me in, however I really want to know WHY this has suddenly become a requirement - and why it is only a requirement across the VPN.
