Tall bald and geeky. My perfect job would be as a DevOps guy where I could spend my time automating out the gremlins...with maybe a little firefighting. Fire proofing lets you sleep at night but there is always room to combat the unexpected and it keeps things from getting dull.

comment Mysql service refuse to be started
Check your my.cnf to see what start options you have defined. Sounds like you've got a hosed init script.

comment Require ldap-group on apache 2 vhost fails when trying to log in
Is your LDAP Active Directory? There is a difference between how group membership is enumerated between RFC2307 and 2307bis. Also might try changing Require ldap-group to require valid-user to make sure it's working with out the group restriction.

Crud I bet it does and I'm just not seeing it in the browser.

That does not appear to work. I will try it as a static argument, maybe it just does not like the special characters

comment Subversion performance issue on Linux
Is your subversion repo on an NFS mount? Why is the automounter using so much CPU?

comment What's the maximum theoretical data transfer throughput of NTFS?
@Matt that is a judgement call. Many disk subsystems can't handle 1GB/s, especially if the IO is non-sequential. In my largest ESX cluster we do hit 2GB/s pretty regularly but even the busiest hosts very rarely spike above 4GB/s. That's with 2 TB of SSD cache and 400 spindles. Not saying you won't bottleneck on a gig link but it's a lot more common for the problem to be on your storage device.

comment pinging an unknown hosts from centos resolves
You can remove it if you like, it's there as a helper not required for basic functionality...but some apps/services will expect it to be there and you will need to use FQDNs for any references to local network resources.

comment pinging an unknown hosts from centos resolves
This is expected, it's using the DNS search suffix specified in your interface/resolv.conf which will match your wildcard entry.

Can you upgrade to 2.4? If or Elseif should do the trick.

comment Is it necessary to do an svnadmin dump to backup subversion?
This is mostly true (assuming FSFS) although the state on disk should be consistent so file level backups should be ok. But exporting is never a bad idea, especially if your repositories are used by a lot of folks or have large checkins. See svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch05.html#svn-ch-5-sect-1.3.2

comment VPN affecting access to DFS shares
Is it your DNS server or the DNS search suffix that's causing problems? In it's default configuration DFS does NOT look at FQDNs.

comment Restoring windows DC's
To add, AD actually identifies the DC's via GUIDs (for instance the ones in _msdcs.**domain**) so re-using names is not a problem as long as you are doing it intentionally.

comment How to resolve all .dev domains to localhost on Windows
It's not really at the "AD" level, although if you use AD integrated DNS and create the zone as such it would work out that way - it would be for any machine that resolved against that DNS server(s).

comment Running svnsync on a repository with group suid/sgid set fails to execute a hook
I think it's the hook on the source that needs to be executable.
