comment Unexplained slow gigabit network speeds
-1 for "not auto". You need the same config at both ends (switch and NIC) including auto-negotiate.

comment dns/mx records for sub domain
no - I think it would try and resolve the whole domain name, and go for the A record. Easy enough to test.

comment What tools are available to sleep desktops at night to save power?
Many updates will require a reboot, so you can only get what you want with discarding the updates or relying on users to reboot in order to activate the updates. You can set a sleep or hibernate policy through GPO, but I don't know the effects of WOL on these. You should test. Or go to senior management with the potential power savings and value of proper updating, and get them to endorse a shut down.

comment Configuring high-availability with snapshots
You might use such a feature to restore a VM to a snapshot in case the VM stops responding. I can imagine times you might want that.

comment Authenticate Subversion users with svnserve AND SSH
You could use key based authentication with WebDAV. You will still need some kind of authentication server, and configure your web server to use certificate based authentication.

comment dns/mx records for sub domain
+1 Good point. You would need an MX record only if you wanted to add redundancy, mail filtering or some other function.

comment dns/mx records for sub domain
An MX record is always for a domain (or subdomain) - the MX record specifies a host (with a priority) that mail addressed to the domain (or subdomain) should be delivered to.

comment Cisco ASA 5505 :: Techniques for limiting consumed hosts (max 10 with base license)
@virtualeyes - I would say the learning curve for an ASA is much less than for Linux APF/iptables if this is your first encounter with a firewall. The Cisco press book on ASA is a pretty good reference, and outlines all the features. I am a fan too.

comment How to create a CNAME a DNS name at the level abc.xyz.mydomain.com (sub-sub-domain) if my DNS host only supports xyz.mydomain.com (sub-domain)?
It would be helpful if you gave an example of what they are actually asking for - obfuscated if you are paranoid about sharing your domain name on this forum :-)
