Why TF are you trying to use Fedora 8? Or Fedora at all?

They end in totally different configurations, neither of which is better for all environments.

comment Interconnecting a fiber optic switch with a copper switch
DACs (copper or optical) are a heck of a lot cheaper than SFP+ LC optics! OK, so for your use case you'll only be hooking up 1Gb, use a 1GBase-T module. But seriously, look at whether you really need 10Gb.

comment Calling sync/fsync slows IO after 30 minutes uptime
This is definitely within the bounds of 'firmware problem', I'd suggest reporting it to the manufacturer. Hopefully they take it seriously!

comment Putting My RSA Public Key on RSA Key-Secured Server
Between this and "Now the problem is when I try to cat the public key file into the .ssh/authorized_keys file, nothing happens--it reads out the SSH key, but the authorized_keys file remains blank", maybe you shouldn't have access to this server.

comment Single ipv6 from /64 subnet
It's still probably a valid address. Why do you think it's bad? For example, try pinging 2001:470:1d:165:dead:beef::. It's a perfectly valid address in the 2001:470:1d:165::/64 subnet. I think you're making the invalid assumption that the last group of the IPv6 address has to be non-zero, duplicating a similar assumption people make about IPv4.

comment Array free space requirement
When you fill your fridge/freezer with food, do you leave a bit of space empty to allow you to rearrange things to get at the back? Or pack everything in 100%?

Can you create a package that runs the uninstallation and create a prerequisite package on which the Office365 package depends?

comment How do I configure RAID 5, especially stripe size, with 24 x 1.2 TB drives for CentOS 6?
"I'm limiting this question to RAID 5 only because we think this will give the best performance." Why are you thinking? Instead of thinking, test! You'll only see the best performance on bulk write workloads.

I think you can configdownload a partial config as well. But that's why they want you to buy their tools :)

comment Send interactive zoning commands to Brocade switch
@Basil Dude you have nothing :) I'd probably end up writing a program that spawned SSH, injected a bunch of its own commands then waited for input on stdin and passed it along to the process. Or fighting for screen.

You're already using PBR? I don't think you looked it up before saying that you're already using it.
