comment Are there standards/conventions used by IT technical writers?
Great post. As for the architecture documentation: I tend to base the structure of the architecture documentation on the old MIL-STD-498 standard. While geared towards software development, the OCD, SSS and SSDD document templates are a useful for communicating the "why" and the high level "how". I do tend to tailor them pretty much though, leaving out paragraphs that are less relevant.

comment Proxies, Apache, Tomcat - VHosts
Still don't have a box to test with, but what happens if you use [L,PT] instead of [P]? That should force the rewritten URL to go through the URL handling pipeline... .

comment How do I configure postfix to deliver mail for specified domains to another host, and deliver the rest using MX records
Graeme, I know a quick and easy solution with exim: hubbed hosts. Regarding this matter, Postfix is somewhat more picky about who its friends are :)

comment Passing credentials over non-secure, non public domain
Depending on the technical skills or the willingness to acquire such skills at the end user side, you could consider using some form of VPN to access the unsecure application. As such you can limit exposure (no need to expose the app to the big world outside...)

comment Hidden Features of Solaris/OpenSolaris
nice read! I'll look into it, but at first sight, it does not offer all the functionality of SMF (eg. retries)

comment Hyperic HQ- Monitor process statistics for 50+ processes on Linux machine
Yes, I've read the edit. Since I haven't got an HQ running here to test it on, I can only point you to advice I followed to make such a thing work. Besides: I don't want to spoil the fun for you :) Relating to your actual technical problem: you may want to try: <plugin type="autoinventory" class="org.hyperic.hq.product.DaemonDetector"/>

comment Should you force your developers to run through a proxy?
LEAT, in theory that is right. However, the thing is that there is no way at all that you can easily make the distinction between a "legitimate" https request and one carrying an SSH session inside it (which in turn may do port forwarding etc.). Many people I know use this to bypass wrongly configured proxies (to name one kind of legitimate use). The whole point is that circumvention is easy, so you shouldn't rely on that alone to protect your network from malware etc.

comment receiving mail during Exchange maintenance?
Evan, that is quite true indeed. It is the eternal question of do-it-yourself versus outsource, and cost is one of the factors that play a role there (there are others though...). That being said, I'll go check out their offering for my own mail server :)

Actually, you have a few options for running it on windows as well. See the post of skitzot for one

comment Does UAC kill the need to run as a regular user?
Glenn, there is no such thing as "trust sudo" in my opinion. You need a carefully crafted sudo configuration in the first place, or you could as well leave your box wide open.

comment What tool do you use to monitor your servers?
While it is not easy on resources, it surely is a great monitoring tool!

comment What are the most manageable and interesting server naming schemes being used?
Chopper3: you'd just go on and use "ununoctum" :) However, your point is right
