comment Need to downgrade Seagate HDD firmware
"I'm impatient and thought the risk to be low enough (not the first time I've been burned messing with array configurations)" - can you put a screenshot of this comment on your resume as a warning?

comment NFS mount in Windows - can't copy files with 600 permissions
I'm not an expert on VMWare, but I don't think they went out of their way to allow this kind of thing. Can you install backup software on a VM and get it access to that tape drive? I found this: kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/…

comment How can I distinguish between SAN zoning and LUN assignment issues on RHEL6?
Also, you really don't want to have the host emulation for your storage set to HP-UX for Linux. This is set on the hostgroup level on HP's HDS storage, so I recommend that instead of adding the Linux WWNs to the existing hostgroup, you create a new one (on different ports) and set the host emulation to linux.

I'm not the right guy to answer this because I don't know enough about how to manipulate storage with Linux, but can tell you that if you can see the storage port but don't see the right LUNs, that's a masking issue. If you can't see the port at all, that's a zoning issue.

comment Exchange 2016 “Microsoft.Office.CsmSdk” dependencie
Never use a server like a desktop. It should have nothing installed that's not directly related to the server's function. When you format and reinstall, leave off notepad++, chrome, and everything else that's not exchange or something directly needed for it. That stuff belongs on your workstation.
