comment Server Room Temperature Control
@EEAA from the OP's description I understand that no airflow considerations whatsoever have been done prior to building up the rack, so the air is mixing freely already with the only obstruction presented by the servers in the rack. The thermal conductivity of the resulting airflow likely is not going to get significantly different if the servers are spaced apart. In this case, Konrad seems right that spacing would provide additional dissipation surfaces for each of the servers, thus likely increasing the (currently poor) net efficiency of the cooling. It still would not be optimal, though.

comment VPS restarted for no reason. Why?
Well, it is a VPS hosted in some data center. Why would you rule out the possibility that the hoster just shut down the machine for management purposes? It probably was meant to restart afterwards, but didn't. I would file a support request with the hosting provider's.

comment Slow performance of DBASE IV on Windows Server 2008
DBASE IV? Are you kidding or are you a time traveller from the deep past? Consider flailing the server with dinosaur tails until the situation improves. Joking aside, are your applications actual DOS applications accessing these files or are they native Windows apps just using the DBF file format as a data backend?

comment Prints sent to redirected remote desktop printers do not print
Have you checked if using printers with generic PDL drivers (PCL3, PCL5, PCL6, PostScript 2/3) does help your printing problems? It is a good idea to somewhat narrow down the search field. It does not have to be an issue with TS EasyPrint and GDI, but it might be.

comment CentOS 7 installer: blank screen
Repeatedly even. It is a quirk that I have to take several iterations at most things I write before the text becomes comprehensible to others. Sorry for the confusion it created.

comment CentOS 7 installer: blank screen
Gladly, but what exactly is it I would have to clarify? I already wrote that it is a PXE netinstall, specified the source of the binaries as well as the environment. I felt that pasting the Kickstart config file into the question would only add little value at the expense of the question becoming a wall of text.
