comment windows 2003 - why can't serial port be accessed remotely?
I've tried setting "GPE\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Client/Server data redirection\Do not allow COM port redirection" to disable (from not set) - actually - maybe I need to enable this - I don't want redirection. I think I am going to try removing all the recent updates and reboot one of the affected servers.

And none of them seem related or have any known issues relating to it.

I am currently reviewing the updates installed to see if any specify changes to serial or device policies.

comment Look up manufacturer based on Mac Address?
I thought of this because I have worked in an environment where we routinely had to alter mac address, and had to use various things to avoid/check for collisions (not good). I work in environments typically with embedded devices - either in development, or doing dev ops/integration. Sometimes a whole batch comes with 1 mac address.

One question - how reliably do Mac addresses, which can commonly be reset in hardware, reflect this database?

I note that you need to either restart the machine, or restart the ssh service with launchctl.

comment How do I prevent accidental rm -rf /*?
And you should use a VM or spare box to practice recoveries - find out what didn't work and refine said plan. We are getting into a fortnightly reboot - because there have been power outtages in our building, and every time it has been painful. BY doing a few planned shutdowns of all the racks, we've cut it from a few days of running around to about 3 hours now - each time we learn which bits to automate/fix init.d scripts for etc.

revised Keeping a linux process running after I logout
Nohup is not zsh specific, but a tool on most boxes. I still think the original answerer should get credit for it.

Okay - how about 'sudo ls -ld /usr/bin'?
