comment Cooling for a very small server room?
Hi, Riah - sorry I missed the UPS. As others mentioned, a stand alone AC, with a hose that can exhaust outside of the room, is your best bet. Piping it through the ceiling tiles might be sufficient, but that will also heat that area very high, so you have to make sure there isn't anything up there that can break of catch fire from the excessive heat.

I think, without a UPS, PDU, and some Halon, you are creating a server room without the requisite power controls NOR fire suppression. This is fine if you don't care if/when the whole room goes up in smoke and you lose all your data, software, AND hardware.

comment vsftpd freezes after failed pam_script authentication
Sorry to hear. Can you log in if you do provide a password? It seems that if you succeed with a password and fail without one, the problem points to the need for additional directives somewhere, either in the vsftpd pam auth, or perhaps a different pam auth file.

That's an unfortunate misuse of the word 'backup'. The ITIL gods are getting angry, no doubt. But, as it turns out the FILE SIZE limit on NTFS is 16.7TB, so that is what the problem is - the backup (I am guessing) is one giant file and 16.7TB is the limit for that size. Microsoft and the other vendors can mangle it and call it a 'protection' or any other idiotic marketing slug they want, I'll still call it a 'backup'.

It is a 'protected' message, not a space message, per se. The 'standard settings' is for a Windows server backup is to use DPM - Data Protection Manager. It appears there is a software limitation when using DPM. You might want to see if the settings will allow a byte-for-byte copy to take place, without so-called 'protection' enabled, assuming you have a way to restore a byte-for-byte copy if you need to.

comment Apache, SERVER_NAME overridden by HTTP_HOST
As for "is there a way to get or a variable that provide the ServerName value from the httpd.conf?" What process or client needs this variable? Does the http client (browser) need it? Does a local server daemon need it? For what purpose? I ask because, on Windows, you can use a dos command like 'findstr ServerName C:\path_to_apache.conf' and it will print the line with ServerName in it, thus with a little extra processing in a dos batch file (or power shell if you prefer) you can create a variable from it.

comment Apache, SERVER_NAME overridden by HTTP_HOST
Hi Aviel, Apache often does not complain about 'ServerName' because the name is arbitrary, meaning it is allowed to be anything you want it to be. For instance, you might just call it web01 or web02 for internal purposes. ServerName has nothing to do with HTTP_HOST, the name used by clients to access the server. Apache might complain about ServerName on start up if it conflicts with an existing/different DNS or local hosts file entry. Complaints, if any, are logged in the Apache error log (e.g. error_log, error.log, or whatever naming convention you are using to log Apache errors).
