comment Daemon to create hardlinks on Linux file server which finds identical files
I'm using ext4 at the moment. Currently only 2 TB. I'd rather use something in userspace if possible, but thanks anyway!

comment Daemon to create hardlinks on Linux file server which finds identical files
I use rsync and I know that rsync can create hardlinks. But I still want to get the remaining duplicates. Also I learnt that it's a good idea to rotate logs not like syslog.123.gz, but instead let logrotate name them with the date, otherwise rsync copies them again and again... I use rsync because then I can easily do incemental, very efficient backup of all my Linus machines and I can recreate the system easily

comment Can I put “localhost” into /etc/hostname?
Thanks! But that's not what I meant. I don't use HostnameLookups. I should have added the link with background information ( httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/dns-caveats.html ) earlier!

comment What is the fastest protocol for transferring small files between a high latency VPN?
I for one do NOT think that you have another problem! While 70ms is indeed a good value, it still matters a LOT! Especially for small files! There's no way you can transfer more than 10 tiny small files per second, even though you have 50mb/s. Unless you use rsync or tar it. Just calculate one rountrip for open, one for close, one for each chunk for SMB. It really is that bad

comment diagnose dell poweredge r210 II not booting with qlogic hba
No, I'm not booting from HBA. I wish that feature could be ripped out of QLogic together with the option rom/Bios of QLogic.

comment How can I copy a VHD image back to a physical disc?
Microsoft chose VHD as it's image format for any kind of activity: They use it for backups and in Win 7 you can mount them directly. The question how to RESTORE a backup is surely okay!

comment How can I trigger a script to run after the rsyncdaemon received file changes to a certain folder?
Thank you very much, both things that you suggest work great together! I would left out the "awk '{print $1}'" after md5sum, because by leaving it in you basically guarantee that renames won't be detected, only content changes or adding/removing files

comment Can I get all active directory passwords in clear text using reversible encryption?
@axk: Follow the accepted answer until sourceforge.net/projects/passwdhk That project and it's parent project: acctsync.sourceforge.net That is surely what you want. Now we only need to erase all the crap answers in this post

comment When IP aliasing how does the OS determine which IP address will be used as source for outbound TCP/IP connections?
This answer here is upvoted too much and contains to many edits and confuses many things and does not help. The answers of tbman and jknapka are excellent and helped me very much.

In the sample, maybe replace "-d 1.2.3.4/0" with "-d 1.2.3.4/332" or "-d 1.2.3.4"

Audit trail and accountability? You're joking, right? It's soo easy to do something bad as someone else if you are admin. You can even manipulate the event log using a trick where someone injects code into LSASS. I can always inject bad scripts into users pcs, programms, login profiles, etc. that steal oder manipulate informationen. You people are just THINKING your systems would be secure from yourself, but that is not the case, a admin can always do everything he wants

comment Deploy/Set BIOS password on Dell PowerEdge via script (R210, R410)
At least this intruder would not be able to know the old password, so we could detect that he did this and charge him/don't support it!

comment How can I set a custom text on the LCD display on Dell PowerEdge servers
Mine not. But I really don't want to ENTER some custom text, I need to display important messages from my system! That means scripted!

comment How can I set a custom text on the LCD display on Dell PowerEdge servers
Thanks a lot! I use R410. The commands from that posting don't work. This link is a good start: en.community.dell.com/blogs/direct2dell/archive/2008/03/03/… Too bad it was not merged upstream yet, I'm currently trying to build it. I wonder were Dell did store recent updated source code files

Do you know the name of the tool so that I can google it or refer to something? I have a Poweredge R410

comment Can I get all active directory passwords in clear text using reversible encryption?
Yes, this is the best option. I'm still curious whether reversible encryption has some API that does what it should, but the way you suggest does solve the problem. It would just be nice to still be able to use the AD-tools. Thanks!

I don't need to change the way I manage passwords. Why shouldn't I enable revers encryption?? The question is how to read out the passwords
