comment XenServer Linux guest booting off iSCSI SAN (ZFS storage): Will a non-checksumming guest file system still be at risk?
(Thanks for the advice, btw! I definitely have a plan for backups, but I'm also trying my best to avoid known points of failure, common or obscure.)

comment XenServer Linux guest booting off iSCSI SAN (ZFS storage): Will a non-checksumming guest file system still be at risk?
Wow! So if a guest file system is always at risk for corruption, would NFS directly to the NAS file system be immune, or at least only subject to file-by-file corruption? I'm trying to virtualize several NAS boxes for privacy (and cost) on top of a physical NAS--complete with all the redundancy you recommend. I need the best solution for data integrity, while keeping the virtual NAS boxes separate so each group of users has complete control over their own NAS. But the files don't have to live inside a virtual file system if that is more dangerous vs NFS from the guest to the phys NAS.

comment Rack Storage - Backplane with 20 SATA connectors or backplane with 5 Mini SAS connectors?
Thanks for the feedback. I ended up picking the all-SAS option, because I found there would be no performance penalty as each channel on the SFF-8087 cable would offer 3 Gbps equivalent to SATA2 (and faster SAS is available with mini-SAS HD cables). The choice between all SAS or all SATA really depends on the controller hardware chosen (ex: expensive 20 port SAS controller vs 8 onboard SATA connectors + 8 port SATA expansion HBA).

I overlooked the ADS part, so I was looking in the wrong place. Thank you very much! I don't know why my "file server" question was voted off-topic for ServerFault, so also thank you for helping before it got closed.

Closed as off-topic? Questions about optimally configuring a file server are not permitted on ServerFault?

comment PuTTY Fatal Error dialog - Can it be suppressed?
@Henderson Thanks, but that doesn't work if any of them have the "fatal error" modal dialog. That's actually why I asked this question. Regardless, it is now closed as "off topic" -- I assume that to mean PuTTY usage does not fall under server administration with the way I asked it. Maybe Super User would have been a better SE to post under.
