I taught myself programming on a recycled Compaq 9071GL running Mandrake at the tender age of 12 and have been debating compilers ever since.

comment How to choose the number of nfsd threads
Hadoop is an interesting suggestion, but the theoretical complexity behind it and the initial setup costs (Labor) are enormous compared to moving to something like NFSv4, which, in my humble mind works PrettyWell(tm).

Does it require that we run Novell?

This seems redundant but... Have you considered VMware Workstation for Linux?

One has to ask, 4096? Even combining all the known computing power in the world it would be the Heat-death of the universe before you got through 0.0001 of the available prime-number factorizations.

comment Mass Active Directory changes and monitoring
Normally, I'd be right behind you on the scripting bandwagon, but unfortunately, in an environment like this, people REALLY want to have a web solution or a enterprise 'active directory monitor'. I don't have enough experience to say if something like Microsoft's System Center Operations Manageer would work, but its unfortunate that seeing or hearing the word 'command-line' runs shivers down the less technically inclined's (Read 'business types') back.

More like show ip route.

Certainly some do, And with a reasonable average of 15 hops between any two given points on the internet, Its almost guaranteed at some point.

Yes, Working with Cisco all day you see it resolve other routers DNS names to IPs.

Ok, Say you, Sitting in my netblock at 209.85.1.1 for example sends a message to Google.com. You, wanting to find the hops between you and Google.com do a tracert - You would see that 9 hops in you are at ae-2-2.ebr2.Dallas1.Level3.net. Now, at that point (I'm assuming compromise of several DNS servers at this point on behalf of the attacker). When that router sees that it needs to send information out Interface X to iy-in-f99.1e100.net in order to be appropriately routed, How does it find the IP address? You guessed it.

@Craig, You cannot nessasarily avoid this risk by using IPs alone. Consider the fact that when you send a frame over the network, OTHER networks must route it, Many Cisco routers refer to hosts outside their local network by their FQDN (I.E router33.example.com), A sufficiently advanced attacker could compromise the DNS of that host and compromise you yourself.
