comment 802.3ad over Multiple Bridged APs?
Well, I'm already doing another project at the same location (captive portal system). Once he has done the bridge, I'll test and let you guys know both the tech as well as what the real performance metrics are.

comment 802.3ad over Multiple Bridged APs?
Well, the thing is that my client already has a quote from another guy for doing a wireless (not sure what technology) gigabit connection between the two buildings, and he is quoting them $2.5k for labor and materials. So, I was trying to see if I could do it for even less...

comment Copy entire Centos server to another
Why is cloning the disk "out of the question?" Linux is not like Windows, it doesn't care what hardware it's running on. You may have to clean up a few things such as udev, et al., but it is definitely cleaner than copying a bunch of disparate configuration files and crossing your fingers.

Is this running behind a firewall or NAT of some sort? That may help to narrow things down.

comment Getting auditd to record the original user
@fuero This question was posted before you had posted your answer, and the original question had become stale and the existing answers didn't answer the whole question. I am still waiting to get my hands on a CentOS sandbox at work, and will accept your answer when I've had a chance to test it. Thank you for your answer though.

@cstamas That was indeed useful. However, on my Ubuntu 12.04 workstation, it did not seem to work.
