comment snmpv3 EngineID for Traps in net-snmp
This might work, for my team, we're only listening for traps, not querying the devices, but if we did query, I'm not sure how snmpEngineID.0 works. I can find it at SNMPv2-SMI::mib-2.47.1.2.1.1.7.1, I must be missing a MIB... any thoughts?

comment How do I update bash on RHEL5 servers with expired contracts?
You may be able to do a conversion to CentOS, or grab the single CentOS package for bash.

comment Cisco CGS2520 switch to reveal MAC address when port goes active?
Very clear answer. I'll have to consider how to use the MAC table for this kind of function. Thanks.

comment TCP rsyslogd events showing up as 2000 character continuations
the admin of the source device changed things over to UDP and everything works now. Downside was that I didn't get my network trace.

comment First 500MB of RAID6 array is wiped, how to recover?
Operating on a duplicate image would be the right way to do this, but it's understandable that the array might be too large to take a snapshot of it within budget. Thing is, you probably can recover a lot from this volume. If you screw up the recovery, you can't. If the budget is really too constrained, use another machine, reproduce a similar configuration and reproduce the problem. You might be able to just give the mount command an alternate superblock. cyberciti.biz/tips/mounting-with-an-alternative-superblock.html

comment TCP rsyslogd events showing up as 2000 character continuations
I'll set up the trace and see if I can find a line termination character, it's possible something is being ignored. Templates sound like a good place to start looking.

comment Cant ssh to my public ip
By "public address" and "network address" you mean that you're using the external facing IP address vs. the internal facing IP address?

comment Setting backup-permissions for C:\Users
Did you reach a conclusion? I had to manually grant permissions for Backuppc to reach my home directory, it was very ugly. No amount of permission seemed to be enough for a BackupPC user.

comment Group Ownership in rsyslog?
It looks like CentOS 6.5 is on rsyslog v5, which doesn't support the new syntax. I'm testing a solution with logrotate now. serverfault.com/questions/497635/…

comment redirect My Documents on Windows 7 with Samba 3.x
It's a good idea, do you know of a method to modify the registry to redirect the folders? I tried HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders but it doesn't seem to have any impact at all, even when logging back in. The closest I can find is SHSetKnownFolderPath with C++, but that's getting pretty insane. (see msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/… )

comment redirect My Documents on Windows 7 with Samba 3.x
I can't find any way to redirect folders on Windows 7 using a Samba 3.5 domain. Even the link you provided states "NT4 policies can only be applied to Windows NT4 up to XP machines." This doesn't appear to help with Windows 7.

comment redirect My Documents on Windows 7 with Samba 3.x
I think you misunderstand. I'm trying to use group policies in the most normal and boring way imaginable. "My Documents" on a network share 100% of the time. The problem with a previous commenter's suggestion to edit HKCU is that the user may use any of the 25 workstations.

comment redirect My Documents on Windows 7 with Samba 3.x
if users are occasionally moving from workstation to workstation, they'd have the problem again.

comment redirect My Documents on Windows 7 with Samba 3.x
As an NT4 domain controller. Currently, I'm testing the configuration, I would prefer to use Samba 3 because the distro support and existing docs are better, the primary admin won't be very experienced and the domain will not be growing significantly.

comment How do I protect business critical data against fire?
@TomTom ok, you need to rebuild your office with your data closet. If your company is only big enough for a data closet, it's still going to take time to rebuild.

+1 If there's a fire, you need to rebuild your datacenter anyway.

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.

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?
