comment mount qcow2 snapshots
In between the qemu-nbd connect and the mount, it can be very helpful to run a partprobe -s /dev/nbd0 otherwise the partitions aren't always discovered especially from within quick running bash scripts.

comment How do I do Multihop SCP transfers?
Current versions of ssh have nc built-in so now you only need to use the -W command line option: ProxyCommand ssh near -W distant:22

comment Virtmanager connection via custom SSH command?
It's also fortunate that virt-manager runs ssh as its current user so that these options are honored.

comment Virtmanager connection via custom SSH command?
I found that the new versions of ssh have nc built in and so my ProxyCommand needed to be ProxyCommand ssh -p 2188 www.example.com -W virt-hosts.internals.int:8854. I would also add that ssh is smart enough to not try to resolve the internal hostname until after it executes the proxy command. Gotta love SSH.

comment Apache mod_ldap / mod_authnz_ldap not caching?
Indeed it was a weird interaction between the Apache2 reverse proxy and the server configuration (at least for JIRA). This documentation explicitly states that caching is disabled in this case: confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/…

comment Apache mod_ldap / mod_authnz_ldap not caching?
Yes, they go up when I refresh. It must be the relationship between Apache and the server it is reverse proxying. I'll look into that.

comment Apache mod_ldap / mod_authnz_ldap not caching?
Added the ldap-status info above. Re the shared memory, how can I check if it is enabled? How would I enable it? FYI - running Apache 2.2.22.

I've added that the host and client laptop are Ubuntu versions 12.04 and 12.10 respectively. What additional details are needed?

comment What alternatives to VNC are there for Linux?
X11 over ssh feels about 5 times faster than VNC or Spice -- nearly fast enough to view flash video...

comment ubuntu: let a user run a script with root permissions
Replace the term ALL with a user name to allow just that one sudoer to be able to run without entering a password.
