comment Active Directory control client hyper-v permissions
How, specifically, are the students a member of the hyper-v administrators group? Did you use a group that would be filtered away by the UAC?

comment Monitoring DFS namespace usage
This seems like the answer, though I am getting some weird errors about quota violations when running the gwmi command on the production file server. It works fine on a testing machien though.

comment Updating openssl to fix heartbleed bug tries to remove redis-server
Where did you get redis from? There doesn't appear to be a 12.04 version of redis that includes a package named redis-tools. I would guess whatever unofficial repo you are using isn't being properly maintained or something and is incompatible with an updated version of ssl. Find a new source for redis.

Also, Is there some reason why you aren't doing apt-get dist-upgrade to just update all your software?

comment Cron bash script skips second do/done set
Where exactly do you think the cwd (working directory) is? Are you sure your cron script has write access in that directory? Shouldn't you really be explicitly setting a working directory or giving a full path to the hostip file? Also wouldn't it be wise to start off you script with something like echo -n '' >hostip just to make sure the file is empty when you start?

comment Syncing rsnapshot backup drives
Buying a USB3 or controller, and faster drives would probably be the easiest fix. Then just wipe/re-sync.

comment How to get exim4's smtp and pop3/imap server name and settings?
exim doesn't do imap/pop3. You need another daemon for that. Perhaps dovecod?

What process specifically? Have you looked at the startup script to see if there is anything within the script that is adjusting the limits?

Are you sure you can't get real public IP addresses? Could you solve this with a VPN and skip trying to do address translation?

comment How to route only specific openVPN traffic through a openVPN based on IP filtering of the destination?
This site isn't the place to ask for people to reverse engineer some 3rd party service for you, this site is about solving problems that you are have. The OpenVPN server/client does not do any packet filtering at all. That is left up to the operating system on the server or client. How filtering is applied depends on the OS and the configuration.
