This is not off-topic. I understand perfectly. Dan only thinks inside the box. The topic is about disabling a policy enforcement. Dan don't like that topic, but since it IS the topic, it is not "off topic"

Because on this domain, all windows servers and workstations are joined to a Zentyal domain provided by 2 Zentyal Domain Controllers. This service that is running must authenticate users with that domain. I was not aware that 2012 essentials had to be FSMO when I initially set up this service on this server. Everything worked great for a long while, then this policy enforcement finally got me after an expired time of working as intended.

@Dan I grasp it just fine, Dan. I just don't give up so easily. I've found workarounds for stuff like this in the past. I'm just checking here to see if anyone else has discovered a way disable the enforcement of this shutdown ramification.

@TheCleaner It was picked because it was the only spare license the company had. It does indeed work, it just shuts down do to this policy.

I using it, because the company has a license for installing it. I installed this a few months ago, using the migration mode you speak of, right off the bat. I didn't know that there was a time limit on it at that time. Now I know this due to it shutting down automatically every few days.

When the screw has been intentionally dipped in Gorilla Glue, preventing it from functioning as it could (without the glue), I like the idea, also, of removing the unnecessary glue. This why I use Linux for everything I can; you don't encounter these intentional sabotages of things not working decidedly.

If there were a way to disable or fool the service that is checking for this requirement, it would prevent me from having to deploy a different server version. I need this server to do so little, and it is a shame that an arbitrary policy it preventing it from doing something it would be otherwise be quite capable of.

Thanks man. I wonder how the mount command knows which device is associated with /mnt/backup folder. Does it cross-reference with the fstab?

This is a better solution; it requires no scripting to ensure nothing ever gets written to the root partition. To me, this seems like a best practice that should be done for all folders that will be exclusively used for mounting.

Is $DEST the path-location to the (potentially empty) mount-folder? How does the command "mount $DEST" know what to mount there? Could you edit this post to include an example value for the variable $DEST?
