comment Can't get iptables firewall working correctly
are the iptables rejects getting logged (eg to /var/log/messages)? You might need kern.* /var/log/messages in /etc/rsyslog.conf as well as -j LOG --log-prefix "iptables denied: " --log-level 7 or something like that.

+1, thanks, write-endurance is my main concern. I am wondering if I should under-partition the array by, say, 4GB to improve endurance.

comment Can I have a password that only works for Exchange (not the domain)?
Yes I have an RDSUsers group - currently only one user is in it, though there will be a handful more. Thanks for confirming BES Express will work for me, that is the way I'm going to go.

Don't know why I didn't think of BES - would the Express version not suffice?

comment Backing up qcow2 kvm guests
"crash-consistent" just means "as consistent as you would expect in a crash" iiuc - ie relying on journals etc and accepting some data loss due to lack of timely fsync. "there is a good reason live snapshots in all virt platforms include quiescing/thawing in the guest agents" as I understand, the good reason is exactly the same as taking an LVM snapshot - do you know different? KVM doesn't seem to fsync before quiesce any more than an LVM snapshot would? Of course, if you are not using LVM for snapshotting, you'd be foolish not to quiesce - but that is different and not what you are saying.
