this question is very unclear and could do with clarification.

comment Which distribution has the largest security update coverage
and "best" is nearly always opinion based anyhow

comment Try to relay form one domain to second via third
this is worded in a really confusing way. Can you clarify / give diagram of the layout or mail flows ? At the moment it reads like an algebra question.

comment How to override the hostname that DHCP configures on a CentOS7 box in AWS?
I tend to agree. I didn't find it when searching for the issue myself (google) a week ago, so others probably aren't, either.

comment How to override the hostname that DHCP configures on a CentOS7 box in AWS?
I know right ? I tried every frikking method of changing a hostname i knew over like an entire day... Yeah post that up, would be good for others to see. Just hunted around and seen the user-data item during instance launch myself. face-palm. ;-/

comment Debian Secure Network
it sounds like you're trying to allow only related and established traffic over the vpn link, but its just too vague to know for sure if that's what you're trying to do; let alone what your current setup is.

comment Internet access from private VPC subnet?
and rereading your question, that wasn't what you wanted ! Yeah, don't do that. I thought your question was saying you wanted port 80 redirected (which'd be odd as its a private subnet machine but i chalked that up as a weird requirement), but its actually saying that's just something you tried in efforts to get them online (which wont work, as it actually does a function as per my previous comment). Yeah, you won't need port 80 or 443 open in the security groups of either subnet or instance inbound-wise, as you're not hosting a website, you just want net access.

comment Internet access from private VPC subnet?
masquerading is saying 'let traffic from the private subnet go to the internet as if from me' and the dnat is saying 'traffic arrving from the internet to my port 80 should go to the private subnet machines port 80'....

comment How to dockerize tomcat apps dynamically
I've only skim read your question, but i think the short answer is "dont do that" look into zero downtmie deployments, and projects like gantry. docs.quay.io/solution/zero-downtime-deployments.html You need to spin up a new container with the new code, and drain connections off the old version's container. For that, you need a high availability proxy layer around the containers.

Personally in times of adversity i tend to want to shy away from holders of extreme viewpoints. Like, isn't that how wars start ?

@MarkusWMahlberg I think what they're trying to say in short is, "there's a lot of bofh here and we like it that way, move along...".

comment Docker: How to partition a large server?
the overhead of vms on cpu performance is very low these days - low single digit percentages. Aside from the much more optimal cpu utilisation across the estate which it gains, and which vastly outweighs the previous statement. This is why nearly everyone uses virtualisation these days.

comment How to pass command output as several arguments to another command
Works for me. If my command2 echos $2 (i,e: second argument) i get "word2" as expected.

fwiw; i'm pretty sure netflix actually went to dedicated instances to stop this happening to them.

comment How to start with IPv6 subnetting on linux gateway
@MichaelHampton ah ok. i thought i heard somewhere it was a security consideration, rather than an address usage one. /64 across the board does make things simpler.
