comment Ubuntu display warning before shutdown over ssh
Not sure there it is wise to set up an alias. What happens when you are on some other system that doesn't have the alias? I think it is better to simply learn to be cautious about what commands you issue while logged in as root. There are tons of other things you can do to make a mess of things.

Are you also going to disable halt, telinit and other methods to shutdown?

IMO Building your own security/encryption system is almost never the right approach to a problem.

BTW hundreds is a very troubling number. What happens when one of the members of the team is fired? Updating hundreds of passwords will be painful.

comment How can I prevent users from installing software?
Can you just not make them administrators on the local machine? If they are not an administrator the can't do much to the computer.

I can imagine why, but there are far more effective ways to secure the system then just changing the port.

comment Sources for contract sysadmin work
If you have a specific question you could always ask in here. Check out the local LUGs. Check out to see if SAGE, LOPSA, or any other sysadmin group has any local user groups, and ask them.

comment Workstation “joining” a domain
Yes, but you still haven't answered the critical question. Is your new server a DC in the same domain as the old server, or did you create a completely new forest/domain?
