comment ESXi 5.1 ghettoVCB stuck at Clone: 10% done
Thanks for the information -- didn't know about async option. Curious why you felt the need to downvote the question?

comment Move roaming profile user from 2008 to 2012 on new domain; logon and permission issues
I still have to do this for a few other users - would much appreciate if you could update the answer with a better procedure if starting from scratch. I.e. Should I just join the new domain and log in? Then will the profile be copied to roaming folder? You are right about ADMT not working. At any rate, thanks.

I rebooted the client after I deleted the profiles that were there. I have not rebooted the server.

I don't see any temp profiles being created; there is default profile (which can't be deleted), admin and another local user (McAfee). I deleted the Users$ share, re-created, and removed and re-added roaming setting for jim. Multi-login's and outs and still no folder for jim in Users$. Also still getting same 1787 error; and still met with OLD\jim at login screen.

Unfortunately it didn't seem to work. Interestingly, after deleting all the local profiles and rebooting, I am met with the OLD\jim set up on the login screen. I "changed user" and logged in as NEW\jim and still am met with temp profile; a folder was not created in the Users$ directory.

Thanks -- trying now. In the meantime, what would the proper order be to do this?

comment mount multiple folders with nfs4 on centos
@Rooster to be honest, I'm not sure. I haven't played with it since I got it working (still works all these years later; me <3 linux). If I remember correctly, I think I did it this way because of samba and the way it uses share definitions.

Thanks again. Seems to be a good solution. If you can add an answer I'll accept :)

Conveniently, they don't tell you until you register/log in and go to the download page: "Note: Free vSphere Hypervisor (free ESXi) is not supported. vSphere Essentials or higher license level required." Yup, and I'm sure it'll be MY fault when it hits the fan and it takes 2 days to get back up running.

Veeam offers a free version, yes. But it doesn't work with ESXi free which is what we're running. Yes these are important VMs. There is file-level backups running right now, but I want to capture the VM's for DR. I agree with your points whole-heartedly. I'm not the one that needs convincing. But at the same time, I'm not the one with the checkbook. I keep bringing it up and I keep trying to convince them. In the meantime, I'm trying to figure something out. Trilead doesn't mention free ESXi so I'm dloading now to try. Thx.

Have been looking at veeam. Unfortunately, in the small shop that this is, budgets are...tight I guess you could say. Veeam has trials, but to cover all our infrastructure would be cost-prohibitive at this point which is why I'm seeing if going ghetto would work. Haven't hear of Trilead before though -- will check it out. Thanks!

comment CentOS PHP cURL NSS error 5938
Yeah, there isn't anything in the server httpd logs. I see the POST to it, but that's it. Are there other logs I could/should check?

I tried adding the executable but it didn't appear to work. Tried it again just now, and it seems to be OK. Another MSFT mystery solved. Thx.

comment MDT: oob drivers not being injected
Yes. The issue was that I didn't add the newly created boot image to WDS, which in retrospect, makes sense. Thanks again for the help (and for going so far as to test) -- it's appreciated.

comment MDT: oob drivers not being injected
Um, no. I thought the litetouch instantiation pulled whatever drivers it needed. So you're saying after updating the deployment share, I need to go into WDS, delete the old boot image, and replace it with the new one? edit: yup that did it. Can you add this as an answer so I can accept? Thanks for the help.

Thanks. However, the default is as you advised; second radial and first two checked (net and mass storage). Both x86 and x64

comment gpg --gen-key hangs at gaining enough entropy on centos 6
Very interesting. Thank you. As I mentioned to Chris, I will have access to an HSM soon which comes with an RNG.

comment gpg --gen-key hangs at gaining enough entropy on centos 6
@ChrisS Thanks. I only needed to generate the key once for use with an authentication system; it won't be an ongoing thing. Should it become more frequent an issue, I will use the HSM that the company sells (which I planned to get anyway). This was just confusing because there was no indication at all that the process was still running. Even ps seemed to indicate it was just sitting there...

Awesome. Thank you. I can't believe I missed that part of the manual :/
