comment Warn: CommonName (CN) `*.xxx.yyy' does NOT match server name?
It's a bit strange to have it warn me that my config is correct. It'd be nice to know the cause so that I could suppress the warning.

comment APC UPS replace battery light and apcupsd reporting “replace battery”
The physical test button worked and the servers didn't go down. N.b. the UPS battery life seems to be overestimated, we probably only have two or three minutes of battery life so we ordered a replacement. Thanks for the tips.

comment APC UPS replace battery light and apcupsd reporting “replace battery”
Thanks for the update. apctest, perform battery calibration seems to be stuck. I'm visiting the site to try the test button on the UPS itself. I added the error message to the description.

comment APC UPS replace battery light and apcupsd reporting “replace battery”
I'm going to give this a try this weekend. I assume this is going to put the load onto the battery and run for a little, so there's a small chance of downtime?

They tell me the UPS is about 3 years old. If the "battdate" of Jan 2006 is any indication, it might have been used when it was deployed or sitting in storage for a while.

comment Cooling Server Closet - No A/C Is Possible
Those are maximums. If you're consuming 800W of power, you're not going to produce more than 800W of heat. 2700BTU. By my rough calculation, you'd need to exchange 223cu m/hour of air to keep the rise at 10 degrees Celsius. With those numbers, it's roughly a medium sized kitchen range fan (running perfectly with a very short hose!), and there would certainly need to be an equivalent intake fan to keep the air supply going. 100% agreed that A/C is necessary to futureproof, but if they're not going over 800W, they'll be okay with fans. Please correct me if I'm wrong(!)

comment DNS record for a subdomain on Dreamhost
How? isn't this what NS records are for? Delegating the subdomain's records to the nameservers at a third party? ns[1-3].dreamhost.com all have the right entries, foo.example.com just needs to instruct the resolver to consult them for the info.
