comment cron job time managment
Note that it is usually a very bad practice to run two cron jobs where one depends on the other, as this creates a race condition. Sooner or later the second job will win the race, even if you give teh first job a 30 second head start...

Gaaaa! Thanks for the hand holding! That was indeed the solution. Remind me to stab the guy who designed this mess with a rusty spoon when I get the chance.

I think it's better to patch the default/grub file in this case, but editing 40_custom can certainly be an option as well.

comment Modifying kernel cmdline in Ubuntu
This was my first thought, but I tried exactly this on 14.01.1 (Trusty), and it has no effect. I think that the default menu options are generated from 10_linux, but regardless of if I name the file as 05_xxx or 15_xxx it is not reflected in the config generated. I know the file is sourced, as if I make a typo in it the update-grub fails.

I have found the config files, but I would prefer not to modify them. Is there a way to change the default cmdline without modifying the files?

@sysconfig: I kind of like that approach, but I am not sure how well uninstall/reinstall would work. Just doing a reverse patch and then barfing on uninstall if the file doesn't match seems like it could easily break. I also think that patching config files of other packages is considered bad form in Debian/Ubuntu packaging, but I may be wrong.

comment What's the best fire suppression for a server room?
Just a nitpick: An emergency power off does not remove fuel. EPO removes an ignition source. If you have a self sustaining fire cutting the power will not put it out (per definition), and the fuel/oxidizer/heat rule is about fighting self sustaining fires. Removing fuel is done, for example, by cutting a feeding gasoline pipe to a burning generator.

Before you start debugging, run it through dnscheck.iis.se and make sure that you don't have some silly problem with one of the slaves...
