comment ESX Free: Creating clones of VMs to run concurrently as a branch version
It should. I don't really know since I've never used ESX free, but it should be avialable in the GUI, whether you're going to a vCenter server or directly to the ESX host.

comment ESX Free: Creating clones of VMs to run concurrently as a branch version
No. Use VMware's cloning functionality. Just copying the files like that could lead to duplicate data. Most of that should be mitigated by answering "I copied it" to the question you get asked, but I wouldn't trust that method in my environment.

comment During yum update, Python installation is updated. Do I need to restart running programs?
If a program dynamically loads modules, there is a chance you will load the newer version after the update. The old version is available if there are open, preexisting file pointers to it in memory, but any new file pointers will go to the newer version.

comment Pin package versions in RHN?
I agree, there should be an easier way to acocmplish this, but if there is (other than modifying yum.conf on each individual client which has it's own scaling issues), I've not found it yet.

comment NFS directory not working
Start up NTP on the server and client, and your problems just might disappear.

comment NFS directory not working
Are the times on the server and client synced via NTP? Also: indirectly related at most, but change the "1 2" and the end of the NFS mounts in fstab to be "0 0".

comment NFS directory not working
Don't think they need to be removed, it's just unusual to see that in my experience. What error are you getting when you try to touch a file in /oracle/r12/apps on the client?

comment NFS directory not working
Why are you exporting /oracle and /oracle/r12 if the first level you're mounting remotely is /oracle/r12/apps ?

Do you have LDAP authentication configured on this machine? Or some other form of remote directory authentication?

comment Get IP of the “requestor” when doing iptables NAT
What you want cannot be accomplished via iptables. A NAT router will always hide the external IP address. An outgoing NAT always hides internal addresses (e.g. a home network) and gives only the one public address you have from (as an example) AT&T to external web servers. That is how it works. Are there other, more complicated solutions that may give you what you want? I wouldn't be surprised. Are they worth the time to figure out? I don't think so.

comment Get IP of the “requestor” when doing iptables NAT
No, I'm saying you cannot put any NAT rules in place. It amounts to the same thing in practice, but the "firewall" rules blocking access to certain ports are different from "NAT" rules telling packets where to go.

comment Get IP of the “requestor” when doing iptables NAT
Without the SNAT rule, traffic will never get back to the original client properly, so the DNAT by itself is insufficient.
