comment Headless Ubuntu server machine sometimes stuck at GRUB menu
This has just saved my bacon - my server's been sat at the grub menu on every reboot for a week - had no idea what was wrong and had tried everything. This and the tip in the question did it. Thanks so much.

Thanks for this. In fact it added the drive and started building automatically.

comment Upgrade from Ubuntu 6.06 LTS to 8.04 LTS or do a fresh installation?
Just as a follow up, we're buying a new server and running it in parallel. This will allow us to migrate services/data bit by bit. So no need to do a scary upgrade now.

comment Are spurious TCP connections on port 53 a problem?
As far as I know my DNS is not sending large packets - although I'd love to be able to test it to be sure. The thing is, I've been DENYing these requests all along - with no known problems - all I'm proposing doing now is changing that DENY to an iptables rule that drops the packet.

comment Are spurious TCP connections on port 53 a problem?
I already have dnscache listening on localhost only as a caching DNS server. I have tinydns and axfrdns listening on the public interface as I publish DNS for the domains on that machine and I need to allow zone transfers.

Thanks for this. I will use iptables to lock it down to the hosts that act as secondaries (don't know why I didn't think of that before!).

Thanks, the idea of splitting it up has given me some food for thought.
