comment How does Postfix handle conflicting aliases?
I don't see it in main.cf or the man pages, but this does seem to work - the first one to define an alias is definitive and later definitions are ignored.

comment Can I have a machine in a DNS subdomain, but Active Directory main domain?
So no way to dynamically update a DNS subdomain automatically? The main reason I ask is that we are preparing to move a lot of these things around to clean things up.

I agree with you on the FQDN, but one step at a time...

comment Retrieve user details from Active Directory using SID
This works well - you can do it as a one-liner, too: > [ADSI]"LDAP://<SID=S-1-5-21-500000003-1000000000-1000000003-1001>"

I've not been able to find that in the docs - have you got a reference, please?

comment Why has Red Hat Cluster Suite stopped working?
@c4f4t0r, would it be helpful to compare the contents of your /usr/share/system-config-cluster/misc/cluster.ng with /var/lib/cluster/cluster.rng on my system, or are they likely to be very different?

comment Why has Red Hat Cluster Suite stopped working?
I don't have a cluster.ng on my system - presumably because it's CentOS 6.4 and system-config-cluster isn't available. Using /var/lib/cluster/cluster.rng fails validation with the "extra element rm in interleave" error.

Hi, Petter. Was away for a week; sorry. cman is version 3.0.12.1, release 49.el6_4.2; my cluster.rng is at pastebin.com/br4pQ5nS, though it's probably never changed from the one installed by yum.

Thanks, unfortunately failoverdomains is an optional element, and this configuration used to work without any.

No; same failure to validate.

Same when just adding <ip address="192.168.1.3"/> to the newly generated config.

Just ran ccs_config_validate on the old config, and got: Relax-NG validity error : Extra element rm in interleave / tempfile:10: element rm: Relax-NG validity error : Element cluster failed to validate content / Configuration fails to validate

Same result whether the cluster is started or stopped. Doesn't ccs just modify a configuration ready for it to be pushed to the cluster?

comment How can I connect a VPN and VLAN via a Cisco ASA?
Essentially, I want the ASA to connect VPN 1 to VLAN 10, VPN 2 to VLAN 20, etc., then trunk those VLANs to another switch in our network, so that if I plug something into port 2 of the switch, I'm in the same broadcast domain as the devices on the remote network.

comment Domain Administrators account policy (After PCI audit)
Sounds like a similar experience to serverfault.com/questions/224467/… - essentially, it's a good plan, and can prevent some nasty attacks.

comment How can I connect a VPN and VLAN via a Cisco ASA?
There's no budget for further hardware, though all our switches are VLAN-capable. Performance isn't a major issue, as this is not a production scenario, and I'm thinking that these connections will be live all the time so they just have to come back OK if the connection is interrupted.

comment How can I connect a VPN and VLAN via a Cisco ASA?
The aim is to be able to bring up new servers at the central location and work on them while they're being configured for use at the intended remote site, and to be able to demonstrate these machines before they physically have to be removed.
