comment Mac OS X Client With Static DHCP Assignment Requests Wrong IP via Option 50
Apple support had me try trashing system prefs, resetting PRAM, and resetting smc. We finally went into system restore's network utility and found it coming up with the same IP there, suggesting it isn't caching anywhere in the OS but most likely on the NIC itself. I'm gonna file this one away and start on a workaround for now.

comment Mac OS X Client With Static DHCP Assignment Requests Wrong IP via Option 50
Great suggestion, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. I made sure the /var/db/dhcpclient/leases directory was empty after reboot and before turning the NIC back on, but it still requested the same wrong IP.

comment Why is mkfs overwriting the LUKS encryption header on LVM on RAID partitions on Ubuntu 12.04?
It looks like in this situation a new device name is needed per your suggestion, or luksOpen ends up presenting the underlying volume group to mkfs. Thanks!

@cstamas /dev/dm-1 is the same as /dev/web2/var, and the results are the same if I substitute /dev/web2var in the commands above. There is also a /dev/dm-2 which is /dev/web2/www, and it too comes out the same.
