comment How many subdirectories does the XFS filesystem support within a given directory?
@dom0 the XFS.org page on limits does not list that one. Do you happen to have a source?

comment Windows Implicit Deny Permissions
I'd second that. While there are legitimate use cases for "deny" ACEs, this certainly is not one of them. Using an additional domain-local "Access_Accounting_Folders" group, allowing access exclusively for this group and adding other user groups as members is likely what the OP wants to have in terms of manageability.

comment Applications locking up when printing to a print server
I definitely would try using a different driver. HP's model-specific drivers tend to come with a lot of client-side colourful user-experiency stuff implemented in the driver code itself. The HP UPD PCL6 driver has been a safe and convenient option for print servers for several years now, although it might be lacking some functions of the model-specific driver.

comment Why is ZFS on Linux unable to fully utilize 8x SSDs on AWS i2.8xlarge instance?
Also, I would advise against a zpool setup without a dedicated ZIL device, even for testing purposes. The way ZFS works, you end up writing the same data twice to your pool's main vdevs - once for the log and once to the dataset itself.

comment Why is ZFS on Linux unable to fully utilize 8x SSDs on AWS i2.8xlarge instance?
Just to rule out actual implementation deficiencies of zfsonlinux, I would try the same bench test with a Solaris 11 install on the same instance.

comment Can I move a software RAID5 array from one system to another system?
mdadm --assemble --scan - see unix.stackexchange.com/a/203073/28334. Simply assembling an array in a different environment will not render it unusable in the original one. As long as you are not doing changes to the layout or the partitioning, you should be safe.

comment Tracking down rogue GPO that is applying printers to all users?
I would recommend using gpresult /h instead - it will create a more sophisticsted report with significantly more detail on settings applied and source GPOs defining them. And in OP's case, he would need to run gpresult on the terminal server, from within a user's session where he is seeing the incorrectly applied settings.

comment How to force ECC error
@Molomby it would. Fault injection for virtual machines is a research discipline in CS. Some decent work has been published over the course of the years.

comment Accidentally deleted entire Active Directory
Even if you did create a new partition, testdisk will be able to determine how far the filesystem was stretching, effectively allowing to re-create the old partition. If the new partition was not just created but also formatted, chances are nowhere as good.

comment zfs: dataset does not exist
It should be zpool import wd-black. As it is, you have displayed a list of importable pools, not importing any.
