Generic sysadmin. Hack coder. Jack of all trades, master of some.


Please Note:

I expect you to read any reference material I link to in my answers. If the answer to your question is contained in said reference material and the reference source is not likely to disappear I will probably not cut and paste it onto SF unless it's really cool/interesting/obscure.
In return I promise not to link anyone to goatse or tubgirl

I expect you to think for yourself and do a little thinking (and mayhaps even some work) to solve your problems. If you aren't capable of this, please exit the profession via the door on your left.
In return I promise to do my best to aim you in the right direction, and to clarify any points you have trouble with

comment Blocking another Win 2008 R2 admin from accesing some important folders
The drawback to EFS is that the web server user would need the decryption key (and as I understand it the EFS key is tied up with the user account, so they could just change the web server account password, log in as the web server user, and read the files anyway - though I could be misunderstanding the design there)

comment Active Directory Permissions: Delete vs Move
@jscott TheCleaner added the powershell stuff & the "Protect against accidental deletion" (which didn't exist the last time I touched an AD thing) -- I just know that LDAP/AD moves are "Copy and Delete" actions :-)

What web server are you using? Apache? nginx? Something else? (You should include this information in your question, and add the appropriate tags…)

comment my LTO2 drive wants to be cleaned repeatedly
@kasperd Well certainly you shouldn't be running a new cleaning tape through the system every cycle, but the other extreme (continuing to use a cleaning tape that's black with magnetic residue it's scrubbed off the head) is certainly ineffective - scrubbing off one layer of magnetic dust to deposit another isn't "cleaning". If you really want to treat your drives well you'll manually clean the head with a foam swab and acetone or ether, but I don't know anyone who's willing to do that regularly.
