I'm a professional sysadmin in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I've been doing sysadmin work since 1996, I've worked for a smattering of companies including Red Hat, two academic institutions, a regional bank, and now a rail transportation and logistics company.

This should all be covered in the Hyper-V documentation...

This is very much opinion-based and will change depending on your specific use case.

comment pam_mysql missing in CentOS 7
Correct - the 64 bit-ness is all about things calling the library, not about what it's talking to.

comment pam_mysql missing in CentOS 7
The rpm -ihv command is what (should have) installed the pam_mysql package, thus the yum command telling you it has nothing to do seems correct. I'm going to guess it installed to SO into /lib64/security, you can double-check that with rpm -ql pam_mysql. What is the output of rpm -ql pam_mysql | grep pam_mysql.so?

comment Install i686 postgres libraries on 64 bits CentOS7
Then you'll need to find the 32 bit packages somewhere else - how that works with the upstream installer, I'm not at all sure.

comment Install i686 postgres libraries on 64 bits CentOS7
Then there's something else wrong - probably with the source of your updates or with how the system is registered to get those updates. The postgresql-libs.i686 package is part of the base channel for CentOS 7.

comment Linux program used to gather installed packages, processes, listening ports, etc.?
Sysreport doesn't have a web interface, but it's sure not proprietary. It's as open source as open source gets.

comment Yum: No package mysql-server available in Cent OS 7
Not quite - RHEL/CentOS 7 use the systemctl suite, not the service suite. So yes, you'll be using mariadb as the name, but the command will be systemctl start mariadb.service

comment How can I create a simple virtualization solution with one Computer which can be later extended with additional computers for HA
This is pure opinion - all of the virtualization technologies I've worked with will satisfy the few requirements you've listed, so any answer you get will be "This is best because I like it best." You need to do a lot mroe research and requirements definition.

comment Make sssd respect Acctive Directory nested groups
Your initial description indicated case 1. If you do indeed have case 2, then you should be okay, and there is a problem with sssd somewhere.

comment Make sssd respect Acctive Directory nested groups
You have: 1->A + B->A. You need: 1->A + A->B.

comment Make sssd respect Acctive Directory nested groups
That's not how nested groups work... Just because user 1 is a member of group A and group B is a member of group A doesn't mean user 1 is also a member of group B. Nesting means user 1 is in group A, group A is in group B, therefore user 1 is in group B.
