comment Samba - user auth against AD and local passdb
It is possible - see my answer. It seems that samba will use the local password database, but only when you explicitly specify the domain as the name of the server.

Use && instead of ; and emphasise the danger of this without another access method.

+1 Much better than directly hacking at printers.conf! :D

comment How to do a file/dir exists conditional in Puppet?
Anything which causes the "require" to fail will give an error as the whatever has a failed dependency, whether using onlyif or unless... So technically it works but you'll get a lot of errors logged in your puppet logs...

comment How to do a file/dir exists conditional in Puppet?
@ddario Put the unique name (e.g. path) in the name of the exec -- so something like ``exec {"check for ${thing}": ... }'' and then it will be unique for each item.

comment Cent OS: How do I turn off or reduce memory overcommitment, and is it safe to do it?
"overcommit_ratio" has an important effect when using overcommit_memory=2 -- it determines the percentage of the physical RAM which is allowed to be allocated! So if ratio < 100 then you will leave some RAM unallocated, perhaps for disk cache or similar. The default ratio is 50% so you'll only use 50% of the physical RAM if you don't change this!

comment How can I tell which interface my Supemicro IPMI is piggybacking on?
If you can ssh into the host then you can also run ipmitool locally as something like "ipmitool raw ..." (numbers given in Supermicro FAQ entry linked to in the answer)
