comment Why is ARIN (etc.) allocating such large blocks of IPv6 addresses?
@MichaelHampton Yes, actually. Consider that part of the current IPv4 problem is the way class-A's (aka /8's) were handed out back when IPv4's address space seemed huge... and for IPv6 I'm not really sure whether we're talking about centuries or just decades (again).

comment Why is ARIN (etc.) allocating such large blocks of IPv6 addresses?
IPv6 has a ridiculous amount of possible addresses, but if we scatter /48's around with wild abandon, we'll blow through them uncomfortably fast. Put it this way: IPv6 supports only 65,536 times as many /48's as IPv4 has single addresses, and we've run those out in just a few decades.

comment RAID moved to new server, Clients sporadically get error message
There's probably a way to adapt this AppleScript, but I'm not that expert at AppleScript...

comment RAID moved to new server, Clients sporadically get error message
This sounds like there are aliases that still point to the old server's address, although the aliases could client-side (e.g. hidden in Finder prefs) as well as server-side. You can look for aliases on the server with mdfind -onlyin /path/to/shared/folder "kMDItemContentType == com.apple.alias-file", then check them to see if they resolve...

comment OS X Server Profile Manager 3.1 (Mavericks) - Enrolling fails at “Installing certificate”
Also, are the iOS devices using your internal wireless only, or also using IP via their cell connections?

comment OS X Server Profile Manager 3.1 (Mavericks) - Enrolling fails at “Installing certificate”
Can you enroll via the user portal (server.mydomain.com/mydevices)? Also, try removing the trust profile first; Server v3 seems to embed that in its enrollment profiles, so a separate trust profile should no longer be needed (and might possibly be causing a conflict).

comment OS X Server Profile Manager 3.1 (Mavericks) - Enrolling fails at “Installing certificate”
It depends on exactly how you're enrolling the client device. I think in general, the enrollment profiles are generated when the client downloads them, so as long as you don't try to re-use an enrollment profile you downloaded before rebooting the server you should be ok.

comment OSX nslookup can resolve a lan hostname, but ping cannot?
Is the client configured to use only 192.168.1.2 as its DNS server, or does it also have other DNS servers? Also, what does the flushdns command do (it's not standard on OS X)?

comment How to set the router address in OSX Server VPN
By "my subnet", are you talking about the client's subnet or the server's? Also, are the network numbers the same (or overlapping) between the two subnets?

comment OSX Server 3, Mac clients binding to OD and Profile Manager failing
Ok, the DNS setup looks good, but I'm a little worried about the NAT. Double NAT shouldn't be a problem, but you do need to make sure port forwarding is set up properly at both layers. Also, are you forwarding just TCP, or both TCP and UDP? I think the only UDP-based service it uses is Kerberos (port 88), but at least that one does need to be forwarded.

comment OSX Server 3, Mac clients binding to OD and Profile Manager failing
This sounds like a DNS and/or firewall/routing issue. Is the server on a private (NATted) network? What does the DNS for server.domain.com look like to local and remote computers?

comment nslookup works but ping fails with DNS error randomly
@etherfish: In recent versions of OS X, mDNSResponder handles all DNS resolution -- both multicast and regular unicast.

comment DNS settings are ignored
Usually the app will use a resolver provided by the client OS, so that's what it depends on. Many (but not all) such resolvers do something along the lines of trying the servers in the listed order, but there are no particular rules about this. You certainly should never assume the clients will follow any particular priority rules.

comment A ghost process started automatically and drains CPU
A complete restore or rebuild is the only safe way to recover from a root compromise. Don't just fix the problems you've noticed because there are almost certainly other problems that you haven't noticed.

comment building file list database with rsync
It doesn't take an externally-supplied list, it builds the list itself. If you wanted to generate the list externally, I think you'd have to rewrite the relevant parts of rsync.
