comment Server 2008 issue running batch file
@Nixope, I've clarified the question; I have "run whether user is logged on or not" checked, as this is the behavior I wish to achieve.

comment Which tool: graph business services and their technology dependencies
Hi minfinni, thanks for the response! I'm looking for a low-cost solution and so I was looking to see if there was a product that would let me input items and spit out graphs, rather than have to set up a whole CMDB (which would likely be the next step in the process). Trying to keep the horse before the cart, so to speak. The issue is that when I try to draw lines between the layers, the visual layout is impossible to navigate. I was just hoping something might exist that makes it clearer visually (i.e. automatically spaces / formats item dependency links nicely)

comment Which tool: graph business services and their technology dependencies
Thank you for the in-depth commentary! I think I should have been more clear -- we've already had such a meeting, and IT and business work very closely in our company. We already have the white board of business services, etc. and the layers written out. The issue is that when I draw dependencies to various layers of services, it looks like a mess of lines. I was wondering if anything could cleanly/automatically adjust, and then I thought i might as well look into tools where I could input this info and spit out diagrams as well.

comment Sonic OS — How to properly use multiple external IPs & port forwarding?
Hi Christopher, thanks for the response! I'm looking to do something a little different than you suggested, I think. Assuming our SonicWall IP -- let's say 123.456.789.1 -- i would like our DMZ Subnet to be accessible by a different, public-facing static IP (123.456.789.2). This way we would not be giving out the IP of our SonicWall, even if it's connecting through the SonicWall.

comment Proper procedure to replace VeriSign certificates in Tomcat
This is indeed the correct answer. Turns out, I'd been following the correct procedure, but had not been declaring my keysize correctly. Our certificates are RSA 2048, but I'd just been declaring "-keyalg RSA", which defaults to 1024. Though it didn't solve my specific problem that led to this question, it does indeed correctly answer the question. Thanks!

comment Apache mod_proxy_html Substitute: how to re-use part of regex match? (regex variables?)
that's correct. We need to rewrite that string wherever it occurs. We're basically doing a workaround for the way SharePoint 2007 handles URLs.

comment Apache mod_proxy_html Substitute: how to re-use part of regex match? (regex variables?)
Also, to confirm, the [X] is my placeholder to mean "some character after that string" and no, that slash really is in that format. Thanks for your help!

comment Apache mod_proxy_html Substitute: how to re-use part of regex match? (regex variables?)
Hi Matthew, thanks for the response! To my knowledge, mod_rewrite only works on URLs where the browser is going -- not displayed URLs in pages, stylesheets, javascripts, etc. So mod_rewrite would be used largely for redirection. we're using mod_proxy_html because Apache is being implemented as a reverse proxy.

comment How to use Apache to convert relative URLs to absolute URLs?
Yes, we've already looked at AAM in SharePoint. And I agree, the question is a rather rare case, foisted upon us by the client's security model (with no heads up, I might add). So we're just trying to make the best of a strange situation. We've got many of the URLs converted correctly (images, stylesheets, etc.) using good Regex substitutions on Apache, but we're working on some last buggers (URLs in Javascript, URLs that Sharepoint starts with "\u002f", etc.) -- thanks for your response!

@larsks, just an FYI, I updated the question in order to completely rephrase it and add an example config file. Thank you for your continued suport!

comment Sharepoint with Apache reverse proxy using a subdirectory
The issue is the reverse. Sharepoint expects to be the root, and apache is referencing it via external.site.com/app/, so sharepoint sends the values back as /_layout/, etc. and apache thinks it's external.site.com/_layout instead of external.site.com/app/_layout. Could you provide some assistance in the correct way to use RewriteRule and Mod_proxy_html to accomplish this? (Thank you so much by the way!)

comment Sharepoint with Apache reverse proxy using a subdirectory
The issue is that we're using apache for the reverse proxy, so outside users are hitting external.site.com/app, but it forwards internally to inside.side.com. This means that (for example with images), they are in the code as "/_layouts/" directory, which bubbles up as inside.site.com/_layouts/image which then gets translated to external.site.com/_layouts/image which is incorrect and breaks. The issue is more how to convert them properly to get the reverse proxy to work with our app as-is.

comment Sharepoint with Apache reverse proxy using a subdirectory
Hi larsks, thanks for the answer! I'm surprised at the need to rewrite every single URL. I think that instead of doing this per type of relative URL (since SharePoint generates some of its own), the it would be better to rewrite all relative URLs to be absolute (using apache), and then using those through the reverse proxy. Does this seem correct?

comment Sharepoint with Apache reverse proxy using a subdirectory
Thank you for the response! We would normally have chosen this path; however, this rule is mandated by the client; we don't have control over it. It's a policy for a large client, and it's just not an option to change this. So, since we're stuck, do you know any way we might be able to make it work?

comment Issue replacing SSL certificate with renewed one on Tomcat 6.0 (using keytool)
When you say to replace the intermediate, does that mean I should just delete it and then import the new one? I can't seem to find a command to specifically replace, and importing to the same one informs me that it already exists (of course). So far, I have my old CA ("intermediateca") and then two verisign CAs that it looks like are now necessary (a primary and secondary?) I imported those as "intermediatecaprimary" and "intermediatecasecondary". However, I still receive the same error.

comment Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Server — apt-get install commands fail
Just to clarify, I'm a programmer and understand the nature of comments. As far as I can tell, every line that begins with "deb" or "deb-src" has not been commented. I've also ensured that the text starts the line (i.e. no spaces before the beginning text, etc.) Also, it allowed me to do the initial update/upgrade, which is the most confusing part of all this.

Everyone: I've added some snippets from my sources.list in the hopes that someone may see something amiss there. I'll retype the whole thing if you think it might help, but it seems doubtful.

Thanks Ben -- saw the update, it imported the key, ran update and upgrade. Still have the same issue, just not getting the key error now. Still no packages found.

comment Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Server — apt-get install commands fail
@Ben: Ran "sudo apt-get update", all updated except I got a "W: GPG" error for extras: "The following signature couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 16126D3A3E5C1192". Everything else appears to go fine. after that, I tried "sudo apt-get install gnome-core" and got the error "E: Unable to locate package gnome-core".
