Real Name: Chris Francy

I work as a Senior Network Analyst at Northwest Educational Service District #189 in the Technology Services department.

The Technology Service department, in addition to supporting the staff at NWESD, provides network support services to 35 K-12 school districts in Northwest Washington region.

In my free time, when I am not at work or answering questions, I play a lot of video games on the PC (Steam Profile).

comment Reuse remote ssh connections and reduce command/session logging verbosity?
What syslog daemon is in use? Have you tried configuring that to send ssh to the bitbucket?

comment How do I map a network drive (UNC path) from the registry / cmd.exe?
This really seems to have nothing to do with administering systems. Supersuper is probably a better fit. In any case, why not just temporary point at a batch file that captures all that information and either prints it out to the screen, saves it to some kind of debug log.

comment How do you stop tomcat after changing the shutdown word in server.xml?
It seems pretty likely that your init script either has the word hard coded in the script, or in a configuration file the script reads. Have you reviewed how the existing script actually initiates a shutdown?

comment Accidentally revoked all puppetmaster certs
If the master is checking the CRL, you could disable CRL checking temporarily.

comment Accidentally revoked all puppetmaster certs
As far as I can tell, puppet agent still works on them, If your agents are still working, after using clean --all that may mean you don't have your puppet master properly setup for certificate revocation. Issuing a clean is supposed to update the CRL.

comment Hyper-v Virtual Network Switch Configuration
I can't figure out what you are trying to do here. Perhaps you edit the question to actually describe how you want your network to work instead of just giving us the details about what what you have done.

comment bash script loses readonly value after first time thru loop
Is this the actual script you are using, or is this just an example? My guess is that your actual script is more complicated and you are having the classic subshell issue. A subshell is sometimes used when you don't expect it, and variables set in the subshell aren't returned to the parent shell.

comment VSS does not truncate Exchange 2013 Logs on Server 2012
BTW, I am supposing you already Google'd 'Veeam exchange truncat logs'? One of the top hits I got was this. helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/70/vsphere/…

comment VSS does not truncate Exchange 2013 Logs on Server 2012
Well people want to be able to make a snapshots without truncating logs, so it would be very bad if the log got truncated with any snapshot was created. Log truncation is, and should be an operation that requires a specific request. I am almost certain there is a setting in Veeam.

comment WinSCP has to constantly reconnect to my Ubuntu Server
It is from WinSCP. Click the Advanced button from the connection screen. Sorry I clipped out more of the title then I intended. Putty has a similar option. Also under the 'Connection' heading. i.stack.imgur.com/lGtXb.png

comment Is it possible to create loop device in openvz?
I highly doubt 'everyone' knows how to use losetup. It is not a common task. I just did a search on OpenVZ, and some of the hits suggest that loopback devices may be used if OpenVZ is configured a certain way.

comment Is it possible to create loop device in openvz?
Why? Are loopback devices blocked on openvz, or what?

comment How to transfer files from Windows Server to Ubuntu Server?
Why do you think we would know what kind of access your VPN grants? When the VPN is established, can you ping the Ubuntu server from the Windows box? If so, use winscp/filezilla, or a SMB mount from the linux box.

Vmware player is a poor choice of tools to use on a server. Get a real hypervisor.

comment Configuring 2 MAC MINI with Win 7 Bootcamp for Redundancy
Windows 7 is not a server, you are likely violating the user agreement by using it one. Trying to use build some Frankenstein HA of a desktop version of Windows, on consumer hardware is just crazy.

comment BackupPC Taking over 72 hours to backup 250GB's
Well you might want to run some find, ls, or some kind of recursive listing to get a count of the files. Are you talking 50k, 500k. How long does it take to simply get a count. I don't know of any great ways to speed up backups of filesystems with a huge number of small files. The answer sometimes is to just do a backup at the device level.

comment BackupPC Taking over 72 hours to backup 250GB's
Tell us about the files on the slow system. Is it a huge number of small files perhaps? Large quantities of small files=slow file transfers.

comment puppet service not stopping service (iptables)
It might be interesting to see an excerpt of all resource_statuses related to iptables from your last_run_report.yaml.

comment debconf is ignoring my default anwsers
I agree but you can redefine exim conf by simply running dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config in interactive mode. - My original point stands. You typically can't use pre-seeding to change things after the fact. Once the package is installed debconf will parse the real configuration files and extract their values, and ignore the preseed database! Look at the exim4 config script /var/lib/dpkg/info/exim4-config.config, it dot sources /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf to load the current values. If that file exists, then no default values are loaded.
