comment How to avoid the issue of the account used to join a domain to become a local administrator?
I am not particularly familiar with the Windows Server Connector, which apparently is a Server Essentials feature. Can't you skip using it, and just join the domain normally?

comment Why cron adds question mark after log file name
after each task there is ~^M$~ after log file name. - Well when I look at my good crontabs all I see is a $ at the line ending. I don't think the ^M should be their. So remove it.

comment Can a average computer configured as a router support any number of users (connected clients)?
@EggplantSystemsandDesign while I like you answer generally, your argument for iptables being a disaster is weak. That quora link really doesn't have any useful details, and the top link suggested by your Google search terms also aren't very convincing.

comment Add static route on Ubuntu 14.04 server
Try putting it in the iface em1:0 block, and try changing your post-up to an up. You might also want to try the iproute syntax of ip route add x.x.x.x/32 via 172.16.0.1 instead.

comment My script does not go to the next server
It sure seems like it should work. Are you getting any errors at all? Are all the servers online and reachable? Does Get-Eventlog work if you specify individual servers directly?

comment openvpn - prevent clients to access openvpn servers local network
AFAIK the only way to prevent scans would be rules that block everything except what you specifically need to permit. Without knowing what the goal is for this specific VPN is, it is hard to make any specific suggestions.

comment Heavy linux server load when many files in directory
There is insufficient information here. I don't know why you think breaking things up into sub folders should make a difference, but if it is easy for you to test go ahead. Is your problem I/O? You need to find the root source of your problem. What specific task or thing is causing the load? How long does it take to generate 1 image? How long does it take to generate 8 images in parallel? Once you figure out how long it takes for a small set of images, math it out and figure out how long it should take for a typical days worth of images.

If you are going to use 127.0.0.1 then you really should ONLY use 127.0.0.1 and setup forwarders in your DNS server.

comment Debian 6 - Wrong Python 2.6 Installed (have 2.6.6-8+b1, need 2.6.6-8+deb6u3)
Do you have any apt pining configured? What have you configured for apt sources? Are you really using Squeeze? It really is past time to upgrade to a new release.

comment How is the maildir for each user supposed to be created?
Why are your Maildir folders under /var/mail? AFAIK most people put them under /home/? I mean it's not feasible to manually create a new directory for each user. Not that it should be required, but why isn't it feasible? Write a script with a LDAP query that finds new created accounts, then make the directory.

comment iptables mark is not persisting after MASQUERADING
I am confused, why would you think that it would show up there. If a packet has gotten to your MASQ rule, then it is already in the POSTROUTING phase. POSTROUTING is one of the last chance that get processed before a packet is given to the interface for transmission. Why do you think it would then be visible in the PREROUTING chain again?

comment Does rsyslogd send new information or the entire log file upon restart
Is your $InputFileStateFile getting updated properly? I have never used this functionality before. But my reading of the docs rsyslog.com/doc/v8-stable/configuration/modules/imfile.html seems to suggest that it will read it all once, then save the state, and then always continue from the last processed point. But if your state file isn't being saved/created properly, then it would probably be resending everything at each restart.
