comment Do the PDC and BDC HAVE to be collocated?
I ... don't think so, there's no telling what kind of lash-up they have, or if they are in a chid-domain (is the RODC prep at the domain or forest level?). IMO RODCs make a lot of sense in these situations, it just comes down to "Can we still accomplish the mission if everything goes wrong?" And often there isn't enough local expertise to say yea/nay about RODC.

Guys... he's not talking about "The Cloud" he's talking about a WAN Cloud across a SATCOM link to NIPRNet or some other protected enclave.

comment Do the PDC and BDC HAVE to be collocated?
You are correct sir. But in this case with 2 DC's (one local, one remote) everything would be syncing to the (local) PDC. A 2 DC setup for short tours is very common in the US Military (I just assumed that's what he was talking about). ;-)

comment Using npm install as a MS-Windows system account
But no where in the installation doc does it tell you to run as the system account. It is a very bad idea (bordering on negligence) to run any application service as the system. Do you see the first few lines of your error log? I would guess that's a permissions error, try disabling User Access Control, windows is picky about these things. It's still a bad idea.

comment How to free linux memory safely to improve server performance
An aside to your main question. You boss doesn't want the site down for even a second is unrealistic. You could always promise your boss 99.9% uptime. Then you can shut it down for 43 minutes a month.

comment How does IPv4 Subnetting Work?
Chris you're probably right, but classes were still taught up into the early 2000's in the CCNA and most undergrad level courses.

comment How can I destroy data on a failed hard disk without voiding warranty?
@JoelCoel Agreed, but in the constraints of the question, the drive itself is already no-op. The only remaining ways to verify the data destruction is to void the warranty, and send the vendor a big bag of hard drive bits.
