comment Setting timeout for cron jobs
No it can't. at least not with the implementation I had when writing this question. The new version in coreutils has the s suffix. The version I had on older Debian systems didn't.

comment is there a way to determine what process has written a file? linux
Finding the source of the problem is certainly important, but if your system has been compromised you really need to rebuild it.

comment Execute bat file via php on a local network to run on any PC connected
You haven't told us how your PHP script is launching the batch file, or what the batch file is doing. What exactly are you expecting us to answer here? We can't read your mind and figure out what you are trying to do. Without that we can't make any useful suggestions. Also, I strongly suspect you are doing something I would personally consider to an extremely bad idea. Granting a web server the ability to remotely execute software on the computers on your network seems to me like a recipe for disaster.

comment Trying to understand DNS resolution inconsistency
The code block here will collapse long code blocks, so you don't have to worry about a 'wall of text' that much. Ideally questions here should be complete enough to still be useful if any links go away. Pastebin stuff seems to go away relatively quickly. I moved your pastebin content onto this site.

comment Linux-NTP: What could cause high offset in some servers while all of them reside on the same network sigment and are configured the same?
You know those values are in milliseconds right? How long ago did you set this up? NTP doesn't immediately change the time, it will slowly adjust the time. BTW, for reliability you really should have at least 3 NTP servers configured.

How are these modules being included? I assume you have a hiera_include, or are you doing something else?

comment Do Hyper-V Virtual Machine Guest Operating systems need to be shut down before restarting Windows Server 2012 R2 they are running on?
I have seen problems with software in some guests in a suspend state. Particularly stuff needing correct time. Without guest additions to correct time on resume, things can get a bit wonky. So you may not need them for the guest to suspend/resume, you really do want them so you guest OS will be stable. BTW, notepad isn't the best test here.
