comment VPN connection over SSH
well, plugin the IP given to you by your DHCP server. Just know that if your IP changes, you'll need to adjust accordingly. If you leave your machine on then your IP should renew and stick unless your DHCP provider purposely forces new IPs upon you.

comment Using NTP to sync a group of linux servers to a common time source
We have over 700 servers and VMs in our 3 data centers and none are off by more than 1 or 2 seconds. Anything beyond 1-2 seconds is almost always due to a recent reboot, etc... Normal daily operations for us is everything sub-second synchronized.

comment Using NTP to sync a group of linux servers to a common time source
Yes, we monitor using a number of custom scripts. Some scripts run on the clients that just make sure the NTPD daemon, among other things, is running and if it is found not running will attempt to restart it and if that fails, thing are logged and emails are sent. Data center time is tracked by external systems - a combination of Nagios and Munin for the most part.

comment Apache 2.2 Open SSL wildcard
Do you know if your certs need intermediate certs? The example given shows no intermediate certs and many 'new comers' to the SSL cert offering market tend to require this. Trustico mentions GeoTrust and Verisign so it would appear they are an intermediary. Post a https URL that is protected by one of their certs and I'll examine it for you (if you have one).

comment Apache 2.2 Open SSL wildcard
"each different IP" If you have a separate IP for each FQDN, then why are you using wild card certs? (cost savings or something?) Yes, I believe you need the UseCanonicalName On directive.

Thanks, that helped fix it. The ExchangeRPC and ServiceHost were not running as were a couple others. I guess I over looked this when I rebooted the box and didn't see any Event logs pertaining to failed services. The Test-SErviceHealth help me identify required services that were not running.
