Why not ... just send the email from in app like just about everyone else does and let the MTA of your choice handle the sending and queuing?

comment Virtual machine snapshot fails, followed by a hung server
What is the data store backing the VM? Local/NAS/SAN? This sounds like the storage dropped out from under the VM

comment Installing PERC driver during CentOS install
Huh this answer is probably gonna suck ... but have you tried just booting it w/o adding a driver? We've got a bunch of these with Cent7 and I haven't needed to add in the PERC driver

comment How to set up Active Directory in windows 7?
@Omid1989 no, you still need access. RSAT is "REMOTE SERVER Administrator Tools" The tools to be able to REMOTELY ADMINISTER the server. They are there so you can have the same MMC snap-ins as you do on a server, letting you manage it from your primary PC running a client OS

@Omid1989 It's meant to give Administrators remote tools to be able to configure their environment without having to remote into a server.

comment Windows machine can't resolve newly added DNS name from CentOS named server but can resolve others
Yea that is what I would do. I would also do an nslookup direct from the windows server @ the bind server to verify it can query and get results right.

Alright, let's trying being a bit more forceful. Go to the DNS Console. View -> Advanced you'll then have a 'Cached Lookups' Node. Drill down to your .com zone and delete it from there.

hmm, and the .com domain isn't also defined in the MSDNS server?

Yea, all it's doing is clearing the cache. My guess is srv4.domain.com was queried before it was in the bind server, and ... well MSDNS has some issues letting go of cache sometimes. The worste thing you'll see is a few hundred MS added to a lookup since it'll need to go fetch it again.

In that case I'd purge the DNS cache on he MSDNS server. In the Management console right click the server 'Clear Cache'

is your AD domain domain.com or some other domain (internal.domain.com for example)? And is srv1 defined in the MSDNS server?

comment every 5th AD query is very slow, why?
With 5 servers, i would use the -H option to ldapsearch and test each one individually to see which server is failing.

How many AD servers do you have? How many sites?
