comment Nagios alert by email for WARNING and pager for CRITICAL
The question isn't an exact duplicate, but the answer is the correct answer for this question too - you need to set up multiple contacts for the same person, then assign these contacts according to how you require notification.

comment Choosing between meaningful and meaningless hostnames
In my experience P2V or V2P breaks a whole bunch of things and should be avoided where possible - we do, hence it isn't an issue with our naming convention. The naming convention needs to meet the requirements of whoever designed it - in the org I work in it was designed by the team who manage all the servers and network equipment, and they want to be able to tell the above things. It might not be right for you, but then it is all open to debate. The only technical requirement is uniqueness.

comment Is there an alternative to Samba when it comes to sharing folders between Linux and Windows systems?
Sorry - this seems like something few people will ever want to do. If you need consistent throughput for downloading files to both workstations then you probably need to set up a server in the middle, or stick with storing your files on Workstation A. It seems like you might spend more time trying to make this work perfectly than you will ever save in download speed.

comment How to disable signature prompt for third-party provider in Microsoft Word?
The user can be instructed to tick the Don't show this message again box, then click Ok. I guess you are asking to do this centrally for all users so that the users aren't bothered by the message, or don't otherwise screw up the rest of your config. Is that right?

comment ASA 5505 outside access for clients with dynamically assigned IPs, no outside access for clients with static IPs
What is the license on the ASA? Base config only allows 10 clients, so if you have already have 10 clients connected then the 11th won't be able to connect. It doesn't look like you had this issue, but worth noting as this has bitten me a couple of times.

comment Configuring encrypted e-mail in Outlook 2010
Are you talking about encryption of traffic between the Exchange 2010 server and the Outlook 2010 client, or are you talking about the clients sending and receiving encrypted messages with their contacts? Or are you talking about encrypting the mail stored on clients and/or server. All of these are encryption scenarios related to email which would require a different approach.

comment Best way to calculate optimal subnet masks for a range of IP addresses?
You mean if rewritten in almost exactly the same way as they phrased the question? I still disagree that this is a shopping question. It isn't asking for product recommendations - it is asking for the right tool to use. Fair enough that this is a dupe, but just closing the question like this chases new users off.

comment Windows key database for WDS
We can ONLY buy OEMs then upgrade them to Windows 7 Enterprise - which is a pain because Microsoft don't allow upgrades from Windows 7 Pro - you have to do a fresh install. Maybe it isn't the same everywhere, or with customers of different scales. We have about 800 PCs and still have to buy Windows 7 Pro OEM from Dell :-(

comment how to disable a user to install program being domain user?
Chrome installs into the users account so generally Admin rights don't come into it.

comment Where is the high load coming from?
Monit is also helpful as you can see the load from monitored applications, which may give you an indicator of who the culprit is.

comment Security Risk involved in disabling SMTP authentication on POP3 Server?
So how did any mail get delivered to your mailboxes before you implemented this? You only need SMTP authentication for mail that is to be relayed to another server, not mail destined for the server. Sounds to me like you have changed a setting on your server from how it was before. Sure - your mailserver could be configured to only allow mail to be received by a given provider (e.g. your filtering company) - if McAfee doesn't support that feature then to be honest you should take your business elsewhere!

comment Mod_Rewrite Rule (or an Alternative) For Reorganizing Directory Structure
Did you test it? Does it work? If so don't worry too much about resource consumption. This will be nothing compared to the load placed by normal requests.

comment Is an IPSEC tunnel limited to the slowest direction of an asynchronous connection?
Ah - we use split tunneling to avoid that. I'd better update the question again...

Fleshed out the question a bit, because I am still confused :-)

comment Is an IPSEC tunnel limited to the slowest direction of an asynchronous connection?
Hmm - so the opposite of what mgorven said, and someone voted them up. Hopefully there will be some more votes or comments to clarify.

Can you rephrase that because I really don't understand what you are trying to say.

comment How do you document/track your permissions
I would also suggest that you delegate management of the groups to an appropriate person in the business. If they have an email address and appear in the GAL then they can be managed through the Address Book in Outlook in a very user friendly way.

comment Using postfix to relay/forward to gmail
That is the simplest option, and as long as the rest of the postfix config is working to handle mail sent to your domain it will do the trick.
