comment Is the HP ProCurve 1800-24G Switch fanless or not?
@ColdT: It has been confirmed that not all of them are fanless. It's pretty silly that HP did not give different model numbers to the different revisions.

I ended up getting a brand new 1810G-24 in the end, as I could be sure that it was silent.

The seller insists the one he has has a fan. Weird.

comment Windows 7 as NTP Time Server
I've had a lot of problems trying to syncronise Linux and Windows servers. Do you know if an Amazon EC2 Linux server would make a suitable NTP server for a domain? Or does the EC2 hypervisor override the clock?

comment Time Service will not start on Windows Server - System error 1290
I had to rebuild the replica DC in the end. Next time I will remember to make a snapshot before making the smallest of configuration changes.

comment Netboot Debian (wheezy) from NFS v4
It's not a direct solution, but have you considered using iPXE? You can boot off a webserver or iSCSI target. You can chainload it, so you do not need to modify any NIC firmware, and so you can boot VMs from it too. ipxe.org

comment How can I stop Windows DNS server properties settings from changing by themselves?
Ah yes, the private-facing interface on the remote DC/DNS server is on OpenVPN, and does get its address through DHCP, as it is an OpenVPN client. I have set OpenVPN to always give the same address, but it is still technically a dynamic address. I cannot make that host an OpenVPN server instead of client, as I cannot get it to work like that on Amazon EC2 for some unknown reason. So now that I know the reason for this issue, I still need a workaround (registry entry NTFS permissions?), or just ignore it. There is also still the other problem on the other DNS server.

@murisonc: Unfortunately that didn't work.
