comment Very poor optimization: Riverbed-Test-Appliance and NetApp SnapMirror replication
what about enabling compression directly? compression=enable in snapmirror.conf would do the job... of course, more cpu load on the controllers would be generated.

comment virtual sftp users with openssh
LDAP is not really an option as it would add more complexity. Same story with proftpd, I hope it can be done with OpenSSH...

comment vsftpd listen on multiple listen_address but not on all
ok, this would be the last resort.. but I wanted to check if it is possible with one instance.

comment vsftpd listen on multiple listen_address but not on all
The issue is, that I need other vsftpd instances on other IP addresses, so it's not about allow/deny of certain IPs.

comment Verify linux user passwords
I managed to do it with a perl script. What about password which don't have a salt? I have some users (on a RHEL 3) system which don't have a salt.

comment Verify linux user passwords
Thank you for pointing this out. I also thought about comparing the shadow hashes. But it seems that those are different on every machine because of the salt? I'm looking for a very easy way to just verify if the password matches. :)

comment Verify linux user passwords
The thing is, it's a clustered FTP service and I have to verify if on both nodes the passwords are the same. I cannot failover because it's not sure whether the passwords work on the standby node. So checking via ftp is not an option.
