comment “/usr/bin/env: bash: No such file or directory” during puppet exec command
See the FHS for why bash in /bin. pathname.com/fhs/pub/… - /bin contains commands ... which are required when no other filesystems are mounted

Look at your reverse DNS zones. I am guessing you have some left over crap.

comment How does Xen resize VMs without shutting them down?
Both Windows and Linux support hot adding hardware if you have the right kind of physical equipment. To do it in a VM simply requires emulating the correct correct equipment. Windows has supported this since Win 2003. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/gg487553.aspx

comment establish passwordless login without asking the user
If you must do this, then you probably would want to look at using the expect based examples from the linked questions, to provide the passwrd.

comment establish passwordless login without asking the user
I assume you would have some kind of restrictions in place to prevent users from using this shared key from being abused? Please elaborate. What would prevent the user from simply using the private key you are suggesting that you would provide.

comment How to add a path to $PATH of a VM with puppet provisioning?
It only works for many Linux distros with bourne style shells - I think you will find it very difficult to find a distro without one. Almost everything comes with bash, and possibly, a light-weight shell (dash). I thought that’s what puppet was for - Puppet is not magic. Environment variables can be set almost anywhere, you have to choose how and when you want to set it.

comment Do I need a firewall if the service doesn't listen on all interfaces?
Hrm, the linked duplicate is not Linux specific, but this question is specific to iptables. One rule in a typical iptables firewall will block INVALID packets, which may include lots of weird things that could potentially be destined for the port with a listening service. Sure this will often also be blocked on the perimeter firewall, but if you don't have one, you might get invalid packets getting to your service.

I probably shouldn't reward you for asking an off-topic question, but... Are you asking for yourself as an admin, or for users. For admins, get mremoteng.org

comment How to add a path to $PATH of a VM with puppet provisioning?
Sigh. You missed the implied bit... Update your shell profile via puppet. For example, drop a file in /etc/profile.d/ which many linux distros support... for bourne style shells.

comment php is not interpreting inpinfo on new centos install
PHP comes in many forms ( mod_php, cgi_php, fastcgi, etc) which one did you install, which one do you want. Did you install the correct version?
