comment how to connect and select data from a JDBC over RMI database in perl?
Does it have to be over RMI? I was guessing you could access it directly over JDBC.

comment Is it a good idea to use virtualization for apache/php and Mysql servers?
It depends on what the underlying infrastructure is. Are your machines using local storage or are you backing everything with a fiber channel connected SAN? What kind of load will the mysql servers get? What virtualization solution are you using? You shouldn't really have any issue virtualizing the apache/php machines.

comment Things to consider when building a file server?
I would recommend against using an Atom chip. Get something with enough power to do software RAID 5 or RAID 1 and do it. Also a bit of an anecdote, I've had terrible experiences with Seagate over the past couple of years noise/drive MTBF-wise with their consumer SATA drives and have had spectacular results from Samsung drives.

comment Push contacts to exchange users
You only should need to edit some of the parameters at the beginning. Please forgive the messiness, this script sort of evolved over time and has not been reworked for distribution. Some parameters to edit: exchange server name, user to copy from, text file of users to copy to, the text file must have 1 username per line, and do a find/replace for "folder to copy".

comment What are the steps to make the php mail() function work on ubuntu-server?
You are right that this wouldn't be terribly reliable if you are using it to mail users/newsletters/etc but for the stated purpose it should work just fine.

comment remove out of office assistant from another user (outlook 2007/exchange 2003)
I have always been able to do this on a stock Exchange 2003 config. He's just logging into the account, not setting up Receive as another user.

comment Fault when setting up FTP server under XP
No problem. It has some nice features like SSL FTP (that works out of the box) and a nice XML config that's easy to parse and manipulate with scripts.

comment virtualbox virtual hard drive on external hdd (ubuntu guest on Vista host)
You should be fine with that. I run SharpDevelop and other Windows tools on my WinXP virtual machine in VirtualBox on my Mac with less base ram then you are allocating. What kind of connection does the external drive have?
