I'm a Software Development major at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, US. I'm also an intern consultant/code monkey/admin at a local company.

Coding is my passion; playing with network gear and operating systems are my hobbies. Currently I'm running a BSD router, a Slackware samba/subversion server, and a Fedora iSCSI RAID box on the server side. On the desktop side I'm rocking a Windows XP box, a liquid cooled (shiny!) Fedora box, and a PPC Power Mac G3.

I primarily code in Java (see previous paragraph for explanation), but I also love C++, mostly tolerate C, hack ugly batch and BASH scripts, enjoy PERL, dabble in SPARC ASM, and openly admit that ADA-95 is my favorite guilty pleasure language while begrudgingly acknowledging that LISP is kinda' cool in spite of itself. I also participate in a few open source communities wearing various hats.

Which version of NFS are you using? The semantics for permissions are different between 3 and 4.

comment CIFS Mounting Permissions
Does the user user5 have the same UID on both server1 and server2? I don't recall how the IDMAP works with the AD backend.

comment change ports on a samba server on a vps
@SamHammamy I think you have to listen on the local interface to connect to it on localhost.

comment Dual Xeon Server voltages are low
Can you tell us more about the hardware? How many drives/RAID cards do you have hanging off that 12 volt rail? Are you using the stock fans (5-7K RPM IIRC), do you have frequency regulation on, etc. What's the load avg? Linux will downclock the cores when they're not being utilized.
