comment df showing 28G of total space, du showing size of '/' as 400+ G
Did you mean to include the -x options in your du command perhaps?

comment Squid download speed is low
Ok, but this isn't about other things going on, this is about timing. Tcpdump/wireshark gives you timing information. The point is to figure out what specific thing is taking the longest amount of time. Then you fix that.

comment Squid download speed is low
I would probably start by performing a quick capture with tcpdump/wireshark on the squid box. Make sure you monitor both the incoming and outgoing interfaces. You should be able to see where the slowdown is. Watch for obvious things like slow DNS resolution, squid attempting to connect to the wrong IP, and so on.

comment Hosting Access Database
other software do I need to get this going - A real DBMS? Anyway, dpending on your code, you may need to setup an ODBC datasource.

comment Single NIC input Multiple NICs output in transparent mode
The LAN Interfaces are connected respectively to hosts 1, 2, 3, 4. - Why did you do this? What is your specific goal? Is this for bandwidth, security isolation, or what? A simple solution might be to simply add all the 'LAN' ports to a bridge.

comment How to decrease size of an mdraid root partition without OOB access?
The simple answer is that you don't. It would be really hacky, but you could possibly setup the system to boot a livecd, completely into RAM, that auto configures the network & SSH. Then simply fix things from your livecd environment. Of course there is a very good chance you won't get the livecd environment booting perfectly the first time, and you'll break your server in a way that requires you to get OOB access.

comment mdadm - Remove disk from RAID0
Note the 'haven't researched much' and 'should be...'. I did not add that as an answer, because I have no idea if it would actually work, or how likely it would be to completely fail, I don't really have the time to try it out in a VM. I'll leave it to you to play around with. Feel free to self-answer the question if you actually get it to work.

comment mdadm - Remove disk from RAID0
Haven't researched much, but it certainly seems like you should be able to grow from a RAID0 -> RAID5. Then shrink back down to a RAID0.

comment Openssl cert not accepted on cisco load balancer
Log into web server with valid cert installed - Create Certificate request - I am confused about what you are trying to do here. Can you update your question to describe what you actually need instead of just a simple description of steps. Did you already request the certificate you wanted from the web server, and get it issued from a public CA, and now you are trying to export, or are you trying to generate a completely new cert from an internal CA? It looks like you have tried to mix-and-match three different sets of instructions for completely separate tasks. I am very confused.

comment How to test nagios send_nsca with netcat
Perform a TCPDUMP of a working connection first? I don't know the send_nsca protocol, but are the server just sits there like a dead horse? Does it not have any greetings,salutations, acknowledgements, or other messages the server must send as part of the protocol? If you look at a working capture, you should be able to figure out what you need to make nc do. Your other options is to actually use the source. It should all be very clear in the source code about exactly what send_ncsa is sending and expecting.

comment How to have one server , that multiple users can use at the same time
I did help you with that. I gave you the search terms you need to use to research various technologies that make what you are asking possible. You need to now spend some time and actually do some research and reading on your own.

You shall go use Google and read about Remote Desktop Services (RDS), Terminal services, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), and Thin Client Computing.

comment Puppet sshkey collection for non-puppet systems
@DrewKhoury For right now, I went with something that basically looked like what you have in your answer. But I am not entirely happy with it, but I am not sure why. I am still hoping someone will post an answer with something that is better.

comment OpenVPN in bridged mode, confusion about interfaces
Iptables shouldn't affect it. It operates at layer 3. Bridging is at layer2.
