comment Windows clients cannot access machine running DHCP server
It's in the dhcp server settings then. I'm willing to bet the dhcp clients don't have the proper gateway address after they get their I.P.

comment Windows clients cannot access machine running DHCP server
What exactly is the network topology like? One single switch with the (1) arch server running dhcpd and (10) windows clients plugged in? Can you try a different switch? Try to set up one of the clients with static I.P. and gateway and see if you can ping the Arch Linux machine. Are there any firewalls set up on the Arch Linux machine?

comment ec2-associate-address + how to run on Linux Startup
Try adding the full path of the executable, i.e. /usr/bin/ec2-associate-address or wherever it is. Use which to find its location.

comment Relay access denied
What I mean by basically the same is that there seem to be some default options that I had never touched in both versions that didn't appear in the other. So, while I didn't have to specify authorized remote public I.P. addresses in postfix on Ubuntu 8.04, I do now have to do that on 12.04? What if the remote client doesn't have a static Public I.P. address?

I added the file /etc/postfix/virtual. I tried setting it up with the line virtual-alias.domain anything, as well as with a specific hostname.mydomain.net, where that name actually resolves to something in our public DNS records. Same error each time.

comment Best way to share storage between multiple computers
In that case, I would definitely recommend NFS. Red hat and ubuntu docs have good documentation on setup: docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/… help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo

comment More than one clone of xp qcow2 base image using kvm gives missing hal.dll error
Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't able to mount it as a loop device. According to what I found on google, you must mount a qcow2 device using qemu-nbd. However, I wasn't able to get it mounted like that. I instead attached it to another vm and booted to a livecd. Sure enough, system32 was somehow missing. I deleted the clone and recreated and now have two vm clones based on the same backing image running simultaneously. Thanks!

Not really. I am using a qcow2 read only base image with multiple clones. See linux-kvm.com/content/…. Only the clone images get attached to the vm's.

What's the -1 for? I was NOT looking for shopping advice. I was looking for information on voip systems.

comment voip / ip phone recommendations
Thanks. I will go with a less DIY approach and have someone recommend and initially install it, given my lack of knowledge. And yes, our phone system is very critical and can't really have down time.

comment bad network adapter takes down entire network?
Fabulous suggestions. This is actually the only windows server here. The rest are linux 10.04 and debian 5 servers(going to upgrade to 6 eventually). For that matter, I can boot up the server to a live arch cd and have a simple terminal only environment. Concerning managed switches, do the managed netgears have the same level of network protection?

comment How to set up SSH passwordless key authentication for remote access only, allowing local users to use passwords
The only thing I edited in my file was to change 192.168.5.0/24 to 192.168.5* And that got it working. I left the newline which I originally had.

comment need recommendation for running PHP/Zend based optimizer
I have actually tried getting kvm running on this server. However, setting up the networking is proving to be a challenge. I have a separate topic on serverfault.com trying to figure out just how I can get a hosted server with a public i.p. address set up using eth0 to also have a kvm guest OS have network access. It just doesn't work for me.

comment ubuntu 10.04; kvm bridged networking not working with public ip addresses
As far as building PHP 5.2 from source, or downgrading manually; I have followed some procedures install PHP 5.2 manually. However, there are many more things needed like mysqli and phpmyadmin, all of which I couldn't easily figure out how to downgrade. Instead of chasing a bunch of dependencies, I would rather just install the store software on a supported platform.

I had already checked that. Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface xx.xx.xx.8 * 255.255.255.248 U 0 0 0 eth0 default xx.xx.xx.9 0.0.0.0 UG 100 0 0 eth0 That is the automatically generated routes table, which looks good to me.
