comment Ubuntu PPTP-server behind the router
Why pptp? It is an ancient, and not very secure. Do you expect to have more then one incoming PPTP connection? Many routers can't handle more more than a single connection through a NAT because of how the protocol works. In any case, it kinda sounds like you want/need an OpenVPN TAP setup.

If you must do it manually, then you probably want to look at @RyanRies's answer.

comment Damaged /vmlinuz and /initrd.img symbolic links after Kernel uninstall
If you can't schedule a reboot of a system to test if you have broken the boot setup, then it almost certainly means you have a single point of failure in your network, that you should be fixing. I have no idea how you expect test if your computer boots properly, without testing that it boots properly. Obviously you should be prepared when you do this to fix your system, if it fails.

comment Is it a good a idea to create a fake raid 1 for guest on ESXi?
You might be better off switching to another hypervisor that will do a software RAID, or support your fakeraid controller, if you really want to use this hardware.

comment Adding multiple 'Limit to hosts matching' for user in Workbench
It is kind of an annoying design decision on the part of Mysql. These days I have basically giving up on using Mysql to restrict access by host and just use '%' in my host fields, and restrict things at the firewall level for the post part.

comment df gives different result when calling for specific device
It almost looks like you have a space in your command so you are issuing something like df /dev/ sdb1 instead of df /dev/sdb1.

comment Server can't reach more than 800mbps
Have you gathered performance stats on the server itself? What is its CPU usage, what is the I/O usage. What is your disk queue lengths, are you using all the RAM. etc. Anyway, gather data, look for bottlenecks, remove them.

comment SMTP server for Python parser
I need a way to stream email contents into the Python application with some kind of deliminator. - Why? Why not a pipe transport? Can you just build yourself a pipe transport that communicates with another script that will do the streaming you require? You understand that email is not received asynchronously So expect postfix to make something that is asynchronous magically into something that is synchronous (steam + delimiter) probably isn't going to happen.

comment How to btrfs check a root partition
Is that the ONLY way? - Well if you had a spare filesystem, you could copy any essential files to perform the check to another filesystem, then do a piviot_root() to the new filesystem. Perform the check and pivot back. But if you don't know what this means, and your system isn't already setup for it, then doing this will almost certainly be an order of magnitude more complicated then using a livecd.

Can't you just use 'webroot' or 'manual' for nginx? Or one of the other ACME clients?

comment Is it possible to take a gold image from a RAID 1 server
Wait, you said it was hardware RAID, but you used DD to copy to the individual disks? I am confused what you are doing. Is this 'hardware RAID' you are talking about a crappy fakeraid controller? If you had a hardware RAID controller the destination disks should have been in the destination machine and a RAID configured. You would not have seen individual disks. If you are seeing individual disk, then I suspect you have fakeraid crap, and you may be out of luck. It would help if you mentioned exactly what kind of hardware you have, particularly the make/model of the controller.

comment Possible to change email address in keypair?
@IQAndreas you are right of course, but I also use that comment in a couple other places where it does matter. For example I have the name of my comment be the same as the filename of my key as it is stored in my /.ssh dir. I know spaces are allowed in files too, but not using them makes it easier to reference my file from the cli.

comment Is there a way to keep ClamAV updated on Debian 8?
Wasn't 0.99 released just a few days ago? You might try submitting a bug report, but it does seem from the devel list that they are aware that 0.99 is released and they are working on updating. lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-clamav-devel

comment Generating basic Nagios configuration with Puppet in the wrong side
Is server-1 not the nagios/puppet server? I am confused. You are doing include nagios::server on your server-1 node, so what do you expect? Include that on the nagios server node.

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.
