Do you have any examples/sources describing this suction-based cooling system?

comment Overlapping DHCP scopes for different VLANs?
This article on how DHCP relay agents (IP helper) work helped me see that this should be possible... technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779610(v=ws.10).aspx

comment Overlapping DHCP scopes for different VLANs?
Thanks for the reply. Responses: (1) It's definitely possible to define overlapping scopes in ISC dhcpd and dnsmasq. (2) Using IP helper (DHCP relay agent), only the firewall needs to route to the DHCP server. (3) I will use MAC addresses to statically assign reservations.

Interesting, I'll have to give that a try. Thanks!

comment How does Linux determine the SCSI address of a disk?
Great info. Thanks. Do you know why Linux would choose to throw away/ignore the SCSI host number and target ID being provided by the virtual hardware and generate new ones based on load order? I don't follow the logic.

comment How does Linux determine the SCSI address of a disk?
Thanks, Steven. Your suggestion about using a script to correlate the vmware/hardware data and OS's data on a new disk is the workaround I plan to implement. It's not the solution I was hoping for, but it will work.

comment How does Linux determine the SCSI address of a disk?
Like other hardware identifiers, the SCSI address is not open to interpretation. If Linux manages to correctly detect MAC addresses in NICs and the UUID from BIOS, why can't it get the SCSI address right? Being able to map from the OS's view of a disk to the external hardware is critical to safely automating the removal of a disk. If you had two disks of the exact same size, how (other than SCSI addresses) would you know which was which?
