comment Do I really need MS Active Directory?
@Chris S - You wrote: "I won't go so far as to downvote this, but this doesn't answer the body of the question." At one point, this DID answer the body of the question, as did my earlier comments. However, the question was edited well AFTER those of us (which you've apparently been downvoting) answered his original question.

The original question was basically: Do I really need it?

comment Do I really need MS Active Directory?
It was the "right solution" at the time, so it got widely adopted, became mainstream and then turned into a boat anchor that no one loved any more. It's pretty much how technology always goes...

comment Do I really need MS Active Directory?
If I could remove the comment, I would. I am not a big fan of AD, and use it only as needed. The wording of the original question was eventually changed, making my answer (and another's) off-topic and worse yet, worthy of big negative votes from people who see AD as the only solution; Hence I pulled the no-longer-applicable alternatives and rhetoric. I am not a troll; so if my answers are so useless as to warrant marking as wrong, they should simply be deleted.

comment Recovering Linux RAID 0 superblocks
Your commentary said that you put the BAD drive into the controller and had problems with it. Have you checked the kernel logs and dmesg, or were you simply using "the force"?

in-addr.arpa : Ask your isp to change your reverse (assuming a fixed ip) to mail.mydomain.com. However, I am beginning to believe that it's most likely message content/format/volume related. And if your ISP is spammer friendly, you might have bigger problems. PLAN B: find (or pay) someone to give you an SMTP relay for your server.

ianion, look up the ip address your server is using and check the reverse DNS for that IP address. Change any numbers to X and then post the reverse lookup here.

comment Is there a case against ZFS?
It's more like use it where you need it (ZFS is the best LVM in my opinion) but you can forget about data recovery tools. To me, the inability to quickly and easily recover data from a blown volume is a drawback in most LVMs. Hopefully someone will write the tools.
