comment How To Monitor And Alert For KVM Hypervisors
I'm guessing anything that would expose hardware details like failed disks/raid array would likely require some kind of integration with the vendors hardware. VMware has the ability to access these hardware statuses. Any reason it seems less pertinent in KVM? Maybe just lack of vendor interest? I wonder why. RHEV does seem to be the solution to everything else other than hardware based alerts though. I'll likely have to to look into some vendor specific utility like omsa instead for this functionality.

Ryan, thanks for the response I'll be attempting your method in a few days. For now I will be using netcat for windows but I would like to not have to.

Nevermind apparently pipelining works in Windows. I guess my Windows skills need some work. PS C:\Users\root> Write TPC-F11-21-021 | ncat.exe -w 2 10.128.0.20 2069 ERROR unrecognized command close: No error

If I download netcat for windows. How do I "pipe" the output from powershell to the application? I can't really go write "output" | netcat.exe <options> can I?

comment Consistent Install Disk Selection in RHEL Kickstart
Thanks! For some reason I didn't even expect that /dev/disk/by-id option was included in kickstart and thought that it would be a %post script that you would have to write.

How would you go about filtering in /dev/disk/by-id ? I think not specifying will work for my scenario. Just curious as to what the filtering criteria would be or how you would perform it reliably.

comment Adding Logic to DHCP Relay Agent
So basically you're saying that proxyDHCP will be doing my filtering. I'm guessing there's different kinds of filtering options on proxyDHCP like binding specific DHCP options per mac-address kind of thing? Also, where would it be pulling this filtering info from? Maybe a config file or something? I've never setup proxyDHCP so I'm not really familiar with the logic there. Thanks for the constructive feedback.
