Ah yes that'll do it. You should write up what you found as an answer (we love self answers).

comment Accessing Windows VMs on Linux hosts remotely
Yea, also add in what you have tried so far and exactly what issues you are running into. Posts that just ask "How do I do this?" Don't do so well here. They are the equivalent of "gimmie-teh-codez" questions on SO

comment Accessing Windows VMs on Linux hosts remotely
Is there a reason you can't setup a VPN? Exposing RDP (or any remote access technology) to the internet is generally a bad idea.

comment Spanning Tree Necessary With 2 Stacked Dell Managed Switches?
Sorry if this is blunt, but that guy doesn't know what he is talking about. It's more likely you have an overloaded router, or your connection is saturated. STP is a L2 technology. If you turn it off your chance of accidentally taking down the whole network with a loop at some point now or in the future goes to almost 100%

comment How can I use a Linux BIND DNS server for my Active Directory forest?
It can be done (I haven't done it myself but have seen it) however, this is not a very good setup since AD is SO dependent on DNS. Is there a reason you need to use bind instead of MS DNS?

I would try running strace <command> > ~/trace.log and see what the software is actually doing. Seems like it's doing operations that puts data on the '/' partition
