Hello, my name is Chris. I'd love to introduce myself, but how do you summarize a life in a few sentences? I could tell you about the two beautiful women in my life, my wife and daughter; or that I work as a systems administrator; that I help my friends and family at every opportunity; or about the work I've done in my community. Perhaps it's best to leave this short, and say I'm someone who's glad to meeting you and hope I can help with whatever problems.

I'm a Windows administrator by day; but my first passion is FreeBSD and Open Source Software. I put my money where my mouth is on a quarterly basis. I'm inspired everyday by my peers, their abilities, drive, and passion for competent applications of technology and supporting operationals. As a Myers-Briggs INTJ and DISC C/D I value Quality highly and at times can be a purist. Incomplete jobs are loans with high interest (see Technical Debt).

comment Migrating LDAP user and password to SAMBA4 AD
It depends on your situation. If you use some kind of federated identity service you might be able to setup Samba beside LDAP for a time, when users change their passwords it gets updated in both locations. Once the passwords are synchronized you can cut over. If you don't have anything like that, you may be suck using random temporary passwords.

The password is probably in a different format anyway, so you probably can't do that.

comment How to unblacklist an IP at Google?
@Boris_yo It's usually quite short, <1 day certainly. If you're still blocked, it's because you're still sending too many queries. This usually happens because you are sending automated queries (which is against their TOS), or have a number of people behind a misconfigured proxy (making Google think that all the queries are from a single computer).

This stuff is normal. Like 100% run of the mill normal. Welcome to the web.

comment LSI MegaRAID Expected Chip Temperature?
That App Note you've linked to is for the 9206, a completely different chip (the LSI HBAs and MegaRAID cards are completely different, designed by different companies originally, still very different beasts).

comment non-GUI connection to local Hyper-V VM without network
SLES can still provide a serial console, this idea can be made to work, which is why I mentioned it near the very end of my answer. +1 For the Copy-VMFile info (though it requires the latest Integration Services too), didn't know about that.

comment Is it safe to use port25 to generate DKIM key
-1 No, if you use that Port25's website they will have your private key. Did you even look at the site he linked to? There's a big difference between "I don't think they keep the keys" and "I can guarantee nobody else has your keys".

comment non-GUI connection to local Hyper-V VM without network
The Hyper-V Guest Integration Services do enable some other functions (implemented by a VMbus driver), like heartbeat and shutdown. But they don't enable any generic communication like what you're looking for.
