comment Linux nested groups with winbind
It was only after I configured a test box using SSSD and received the same results I started noticing it in other places, like VMware. That lead me to believe it was AD related and I found the above solution. My issue was very similar to what you have listed. The winbind command you're looking for is wbinfo --group-info

comment Samba4 net join member fails
While i've rolled back to samba3 on many systems, my test system now appears to join without any other changes made it's probable this was the cause.

comment Samba4 net join member fails
Yes, unfortunately it doesn't add a lot of information beyond whats in the command line output. I've updated the question to include what little is there.

Are you trying to automate the install on new boxes or are you having issues applying pulse to rhel5.9?

comment My domain doesn't resolve sometimes, pointing to my own dns server
Is there any reason you're running a domain server at all, does this game require it? Usually thats best left to your domain name provider unless you have the hardware & skill to run it properly. You shouldn't ever be running a DNS server for external resolution on a non-static IP address & DNS1 and 2 should be different IPs at the very least with two servers for RFC compliance. (At any rate DNS is 53 on tcp & udp not 52!)

comment Piranha/Pulse, lvs.cf with persistence and server failure
This worked for me, thank you. It does seem to remove the ability to gracefully remove servers however as of right now I don't have that requirement.

comment Piranha/Pulse, lvs.cf with persistence and server failure
This would probably be a better long term solution as the expire option removes the ability to gracefully remove servers, thanks. I'll investigate it when I have time!

I was pondering a codec issue but I would have though those to be installed with the Lync client. I'll go looking for one to install.

comment How to find out the log file name that a currently running process is writing to?
@Gnanam all good, lsof just gives you a list of open files that you can parse any way you wish.

@Gnanam , you mean something like for i in `ps aux |grep java |grep -v grep |awk '{print $2}'`; do echo $i; lsof |grep $i |grep \.log; done ? Flavor to taste

comment Backup VHD: risks?
At any rate cloning and not running sysprep will still leave you with duplicate SIDs which will cause the "interesting" issues, Apache, PHP, mysql probably won't care, IIS, Exchange and MSSQL may very well not function as intended. If you need to clone it's for a reason and you probably have a software support contract somewhere you'll violate so why not do it properly with remote install services and WSUS and just do an end run around the whole issue, esp given your image will be "unpatched" this time next week?

comment Backup VHD: risks?
More an issue of just say your VHD contains a machine named A, which is joined to the domain. You now clone it and have two machines named A both "joined" to the domain. The machine account is going to get confused, as will things like WSUS or possibly group policy. The machines will also complain regularly about duplicate names on the network and you will have issues addressing them outside of the IP address. Doubt it will even work for that long. If none of thats important why join it to the domain? Short version; unjoin it from domain then clone, then rename, then join.

comment Multihomed Windows routing issue
Routing is enabled on the Cisco ASA and it handles passing traffic between the sites. I'm not trying to enable forwarding or routing on the Windows box at all. I'm trying to have windows respond to traffic on the interface it received it from, so if I ping 192.168.1.140 on interface A my reply should come from A not B which it currently is. The IP addresses can not be changed and merging the subnets unfortunately isn't feasible either.

@Chris S, the Cisco is handling the routing between the subnets, I've edited that into the question

@Hyppy, included and the topology is very simple, safe to assume any/any permit IP rules between each subnet.
