comment How many power circuits do I have in a rack?
Most colo facilities will permit no more than 2x20A of power in one rack. Contact your specific colo provider for details. City fire ordinances may limit the power as well. For your systems, I would ask the manufacturer what is the expected amp draw and peak load. You will want to provision power such that you have some overhead for switches, out of band management tools etc. Note that most providers want you to stay within 80% of your peak usage so not to trip circuit breakers.

comment Nginx 502 Bad Gateway - 111: Connection refused, port not being listened to
@ADM I think that error only happens if you try to spin up another pool on the same port. This would need to be verified but I don't think that error occurs if you have two pools with the same name but different ports.

comment No route to host centos
Man pages are your friend. ipset.netfilter.org/iptables.man.html see the delete chain rule.

comment No route to host centos
Your iptables -N rule is creating a new chain. Chains are processed and then passed back into the main rules. So in this case your NRPE rule passes that traffic into the NRPE chain, which does not have an accept rule. By default it will drop traffic.

comment No route to host centos
On the client side (the server you are telnetting from) post the results of route -n. You could have a routing table issue. If you stop iptables on the destination server, can you connect? Also note with NRPE you need to configuration authentication but that should not stop you from connecting to the port.

comment Yum does not install specific RPM version with custom repo
You may have a naming issue. You may want to compare package information between two packages using rpm -qp in your repo. I don't see why you would get this behavior without a repo data, package naming or corrupted RPM database.

comment rkhunter warnings - whitelisting
What version of rkhunter are you using? Make sure you do not have multiple copies of rkhunter installed. I've seen issues when you install from RPM and source and you end up with different configuration files. Check /usr/local/etc and /etc/ for config files.

comment What are the pros and cons of using S3 as a data access server?
You may want to rework your post into how to use S3 as a configuration management system. As it is worded, I think we will end up with a debate about configuration management - which would be off topic.

comment dig & nslookup can't resolve local hosts unless I specify the (local) DNS server to use
Appears you are querying different nameservers. Appears 142.3.102.202 does not have any A records configured for the domain. So I am not sure where you are managing records?

Do you have a nameserver running on your localhost?
