comment Relationship between /etc/hosts and iptables?
I thought you had stated that you can change GlassFish configuration to listen on a non-priv port. What does "Yes I can do that." refer too?

comment Relationship between /etc/hosts and iptables?
@Steve: Why will you have to grant its user account to listen on a privileged port if you "can do that" means you can change the GlassFish server to listen on an unpriv port? Many Linux processes often are launched by root but then switch to a jailed or regular/unpriv user account. But if you claim you can change the port, then you should be all set. No need to run as root...

@Steve: Not familiar with GlassFish; but can't you change the port GlassFish listens on from 80 & 443 to 8080 and 8181 somewhere?

comment Relationship between /etc/hosts and iptables?
oh-I-C: You want to connect TO this server. This VPS box is listening on an IP address bound to ETH0 and port 80 & 443 which you are PATing the connection. Why do you need PAT if, presumably, the ETH0 is public facing? If you're looking to limit port exposure, you should just stick with iptables -t filter rules and just get rid of the PREROUTING stuff. IPTABLES -A INPUT is changing the filter table.

comment GLUSTERFS or DFSR
Looked but can't find the article. Been running DFSR since I made this post & it has been very hands-off. IE it just works. One thing that got me into a little trouble was forgetting to set priority on DFS shares. I keep data on both servers and run full mesh. Some apps access data on srvr1 while other apps use srvr2 and so priorities should be set to prevent workstations from using less preferred node for a given app. Being a huge Linux advocate, I must say it was nice not mucking around in .conf files and ./configure;make;make install; not typical of M$ to work this well out of the box.

comment OpenVPN not Routing correctly on CentOS 6
you have two default routes with the preferred (lower metric) pointing to something other than your VPN interface. I would fix this problem if you want all traffic to be routed over the VPN when it's up.

comment OpenVPN not Routing correctly on CentOS 6
is windows firewall on? Why are you using a well known port (443) not that this is a problem but seems odd. What does "route print" and "ipconfig" show on your windows client? Does your default GW IP match your TUN address?

comment Win2K8 R2 Scheduled Task Fault Tolerance
Hopeless: My thoughts exactly. I reckoned there has to be a cleaner solution though? One of the problems I forsee is the attempting to fence the correct server to allow the scheduled task to complete on which sever (assuming if I launch it on both servers at same time). My other thought was to just stagger the jobs in time so that the DFS replication is not trying to resolve concurrent changes to the replicated space.

comment kill -9 a postgres process
@Craig: What a superb response; and to include a demonstration, I wish I could up vote this 100x. I'm a software developer who works with PG daily and since the 6.x days and your response is spot on! Nice!

comment GLUSTERFS or DFSR
Ah, very cool. Like you I tend to goto Linux as my first choice but two things causing me to look closer to Windows besides DFSR. (1) Customer wants centralized Antivirus and the Windows product just seems painless. (2) Some workstations have roaming profiles and they don't always roam; always assumed incompatibility with Samba being domain controller. My thought is to put Samba and GLUSTERFS on same host and if the main server fails, I can fail over Samba and would hope GLUSTERFS would just take care of things.
