comment aws ec2 security group and centos ip tables
Don't copy and paste it, just type it. The character is different than the - character.

Try adding –m state --state NEW directly after your INPUT

comment Browser not asking for client certificate
This is normal behavior. The server needs to know which CA's to check the client certificate against.

comment Connecting to a PostgresSQL Database Instance on Amazon Web Services
If you've established that the port is open, then it may be that PostgreSQL is rejecting the connection. I'm not sure what the default for Postgres is, but for MySQL/MariaDB it doesn't allow connections from outside localhost.

comment IP Conflicts from mikrotik router for multiple ip addresses (that it isnt assigned)
You said no changes were made to the configs, but did anything else change? Your machine or other devices on the network?

comment Better way to do [linux] system & environment validation?
Please provide more clarity around what it means to validate a system. For example, when you say "ssh to a linux server" are you checking to see if a particular username and password works? Or do you just want to know that TCP port 22 is open? Same goes for telnetting to the other services you mentioned. When checking latency, what potential problems are you trying to flush out?

comment Amazon EC2: Getting charged for usage of micro free tier
The details around Amazon's "free tier" are intentionally misleading. If you do not quality for the free tier, you will still see instances marked as "free tier eligible" and you won't know you will be charged until you see the charges applied to your account. Amazon even has a FAQ, "Why am I getting a bill? I thought my new account was covered by the AWS Free Usage Tier offer." The answer is useless and just as misleading as everything else. They know people are expecting free and not getting it, but haven't done much to address this very common misconception.

comment New 2012 Domain Controller and error “The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship”
Thanks for the answers. When I connect to the 2012 DC with ADUC, I do see the workstation that is having the problem. Does this still indicate a synchronization problem?

You could run mturoute to determine the smallest MTU.

comment Cross-forest GPO between 2003 and 2008 Denied Beacuse it's “Inaccessible”
I found a workaround by copying the policy folder from the DC where the GPO lives to the DC in the domain my user is logging in from.

comment LUNs and virtual machines
I will caveat this by saying that if you are using StorageLink with XenServer, it will create and manage a separate LUN for each VM. Since XenServer handles all the SAN operations for you, this is a pretty practical solution. But very ugly looking when you see a bunch of volumes named 'Xen' followed by a bunch of hex gibberish.

comment Simple Multicast Design
It might help if you went into more detail about what you are trying to accomplish. I don't understand what multicasting has to do with "desktop imaging requirements"

comment Windows 2008 ignores Gratuitous ARP requests
I don't think there is a way to force Windows to accept gratuitous ARPs. In fact, I have had to lower the basereachable time to achieve failover/failback in a different scenario because of this.

comment Relocating event logs in Windows Server 2008 R2
This is correct. The only step I was missing (which doesn't appear in any of the tutorials) was to make sure Local Service had permissions to create the evtx files.

comment Windows 2008 R2 Scheduled Task Not Running With Admin Privileges even if granted?
The operation completed successfully (0x0). The rest of the script works (pop-ups, etc.) but it just doesn't reboot the system.
