comment Puppet change mysql datadir only if it is installed first time
Why are you creating a new mount at /mysql That is not a standard location, anyone using the FHS would look for something. I would expect data like that to be under /var, or possibly /srv/.

comment iptable rule and iftop command
Call your ISP, and have them block it on their equipment. Think it through. Your server cannot decide to block/permit something until it has already arrived. You of course could just turn off your server, then you won't get any packets.

Depends on what you mean by 'stopping'. If someone is flooding you with packets they will still be delivered to your system. An iptables DROP rule prevents your system from doing anything with the packets, once they have arrived.

What command are you using when you say tcpdump doesn't see it? What interface are you looking at? Details matter here.

comment Powershell script to change local admin password
Read the stuff inside the <# ... #> again. It all seems pretty clear to me? What part are you getting stuck on?

comment Powershell script to change local admin password
Did you actually read the docs in the script? .PARAMETER EncryptionKey - A password to encrypt the TSV file with. Uses AES encryption.. EncryptionKey is not the password.

comment Debian wheezy to jessie update hangs during boot - setting up x socket directories… /tmp/.x11-unix /tmp/.ice-unix
Have you tried booting into rescue mode? It should be one of the options at boot time.

comment No space left on device error
I don't know postgres, but if you are using standard packages, I highly doubt it is storing data under /etc.

Why is /etc 3.7GB? That is an unusually large size for /etc.

comment mdadm: Disk configuration by UUID
I am not aware of it being deprecated. It just isn't necessary. The kernel will auto-discover a lot. AFAIK 99% of the time you don't need to use that. But I am sure there are situations where it wouldbe useful.
