comment Serve isolinux.cfg from a network location
Does a working PXE configuration present a menu of available images? Is it possible to edit the boot configuration of those images (eg, pass kernel boot parameters) without changing an ISO?

comment In the output of ps(1) on OS X-like systems, what do processes listed in parentheses mean, and how do I kill them?
that's a good point - I'll dig through the server config directory. Still irritating that there's apparently no way of excising those processes from the process table on OS X.

For the record this is what Eclipse claims is the issue - Several ports (52358, 62327) required by Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost (sshd) are already in use. The server may already be running in another process, or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need to stop the other process or change the port number(s).

They are not actually in use, per lsof as you mentioned. The only trace on the system that I can find of them is the "zombie-like" processes. This may be YASEE (Yet Another Stupid Eclipse Error) but not being able to remove those entries from the process table without a reboot smells deeper than that.

Yeah, the problem is these processes are holding onto some ports, (or at least Eclipse thinks so), so I can't restart my Tomcat instances without either changing the ports or rebooting, either of which are a pain when trying to develop.

Thanks - ended up adding an includeDir to a snmpd.local.conf file.

comment Additive SNMPd configuration in CentOS
Do you know if these are "checked" at all, or are the configuration files just naively concatenated and evaluated by snmpd?

comment Configuring different read and write targets for OpenLDAP
I can do that if I have to - it'd just be a lot easier to get good test coverage if I can simply clone clients and flip a couple of settings to point at the new testing server. The process to add new data is also long and slow enough that I'd like to avoid it if at all possible.

I clarified the original comment - no, it is just grub 0.97. For some reason the CentOS 6 Anaconda installer which we use to install our OS does some weird symlinking of /boot/grub/grub.conf to /boot/grub/menu.lst. It has been a while since I've dealt with grub stuff so I forgot that that may be confusing.
