comment How can I determine which specific process/service on my CentOS box is generating excessive DNS queries?
Wireshark? The queries are coming from somewhere...

comment Need a program to check all Ethernet ports in my office for it's proper functioning
"unmanageable switches" :) This is too vague for anyone to really help, but maybe with some more details: how many switches, how are they connected, how many workstations connected to them, etc.

comment How are mirrored packets encapsulated and sent to the receiver?
Not sure what you mean by encapsulated... when you configure a switch port to mirror another port (the monitored port), the mirror gets a copy of every packet sent to or from the monitored port. There's no encapsulation. Think of the mirror port as functioning like a hub, as this document shows: cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/switches/…

comment Windows server 2008 active directory user profile
Look into profile migration tools... the ones I know of are intended to do exactly what you want for workstations - win7, 10... But they might work for users on a server with RDP.

comment Setting different NS records as authoritative on authoritative DNS
If you want anyone to be able to help troubleshoot, you need to post the actual domain name. Since this is all your public domain name and addresses, there's no security implication to doing so.

comment Map shared network folder as servername
It's still not clear what you're trying to achieve... Do you want to be able to switch quickly between Live and Test ini files and without restarting the app?

comment DNS name forwarding basic setup issue
I'd suggest a book on basic DNS... if you want www.mysite to resolve, you'll need a record for it.

comment Windows 7 Can't Login to Samba 4.1.6 Active Directory Domain
Use a better domain name, anything.local is a bad idea. And the vast majority of AD problems turn out to be DNS problems, make sure name resolution is working perfectly, everywhere.

comment Can unjacketed cable handle gigabit speeds?
Cool! It's interesting to see the details... Almost all of the patches look to me like the pairs and the "cables" are in good shape (the cables still look like cables even though they don't have jackets. If it were me, and I did some simple tests and found I could get end-to-end 1Gig connections, I'd probably trust it. It looks like there are a few loose pairs on the right-hand side, just above the gap in the middle.

comment Can a different DNS server be used for subdomains?
@muncherelli The downvotes might be because it wasn't completely clear what you wanted to do. I thought it sounded like you wanted to delegate nameserving to your dev machine and answered that.

comment Saving OneNote files to Linux server (no SharePoint)
Really? It can only save to Sharepoint or the cloud? That would be enough to cross it off my list.

This is something you need to configure on the guest OS, i.e. to use DHCP.

As that other answer says, you administer Samba4 using the same Windows tools you would for Windows Server.

comment samba openldap user file premissions
This answer has some information on Samba4 and links to the samba.org wiki, which is the best place to look for documentation. serverfault.com/questions/760059/…

Why don't you just give it a static address?

comment pfsense in virtualbox
Your host, the physical machine running Ubuntu and Vbox must have an IP address, so what's the question here?
