comment can't type lower cased e in amazon ec2 (Amazon Linux)
/etc/inputrc is NOT for environment variables. It's a specific input format read by readline.

comment How to integrate Active Directory with FreeBSD 10.0 using security/sssd?
What's the purpose of removing samba41? Does it only work with samba36? I'm having this exact problem but don't want to backrev to 3.6 if I don't have to.

comment Windows Tool to read S.M.A.R.T. attributes on SATA drive in HP D2700 Enclosure using P812 Controller
Did you try variations on smartctl -a -l ssd /dev/sda -d sat+cciss,1 from the linked question? There's other options other than cross depending on controller. From your output you're hitting the LV instead of any drive behind it.

comment Set MTU of interface via powershell
i.e.: Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty in theory does exactly what I want but isn't available until Windows 8. Also: despite having a MTU property, SetMTU doesn't exist on my system either. :(

Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty… OH WAIT! twitter.com/Supermathie/status/542075228860731394 Yeah that's right. Windows. Anything you want is only in the next version.

Added more details. Perhaps that works on Windows 8, but not 7. :/

comment Set MTU of interface via powershell
I already did something very similar (the netsh command on 'Local Area Connection 2') and it only changed the interface MTU but not the physical interface :(. I'll try again.

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.

ss -plt gets you part of the way there.

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.
