comment Where can I read more about how workgroup environment works? (Windows)
@OliverSalzburg, while just running dcpromo and clicking next might give you something that appears to work, without an understanding of DNS, you will almost certainly make a mess for yourself at some point in the future. I have had to clean up many broken domains where people followed that simplistic click next suggestion.

How do you define 'network' in your third paragraph? Are you looking for centralized authentication? Perhaps you should give up on finding a book, and just ask your questions here.

comment How to edit known_hosts when several hosts share the same IP and DNS name?
@FrédéricGrosshans, I check checked. You don't have to have seperate ports, and the HashKnownHosts option works fine with HostKeyAlias.

Have you simply considered making both installations have the same key?

comment setting up static ip on linux
@user64908, a performance difference seems extremely unlikely. The applied network configuration will be exactly the same unless you supplied and invalid/unusual network/broadcast.

comment How many bootable partitions are possible to have on one hard drive?
If you limited yourself to Windows 7 only, then you should be able to keep an insanely huge number of installs since you can boot from Virtual Hard Disks. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/video/windows-7-boot-from-vhd.aspx

comment Distributed website server redundancy
It is certainly possible to build systems where there is no single point of failure. This is often expensive, and many of the techniques to accomplish this require some pretty complex configuration.

comment OpenVPN Appliance Routing Configuration
So if you changed it to deliver 10.10.8.0/24, then you need to add a route on your firewall (10.10.9.1) for that subnet (10.10.8.0/24) to be routed via to the VPN gateway, which I think you have set to 10.10.9.81.

Why have you made your pool of IP addresses for the VPN so small?

Revert your system to the previous state using 'System Restore', or some other backup you took. Next time you decide to start disabling things you don't understand, try it first in a VM, or at least take lots of notes, so you know how to reverse your changes.

comment OpenVPN Appliance Routing Configuration
So is the OpenVPN in routed or bridged mode? What IP addresses to the OpenVPN clients get? If it is in routed mode, you cannot use the same subnet for VPN clients as you have defined on your network. If it is in routed mode, you need to add a route for the VPN Client subnet, to your Router 10.10.9.1.

comment Store and call favorite bash commands
Learn the CLI backwards and forwards. After that the only think you need is your memory, and the ability to type fast. I find it much easier trying to remember the standard selection of commands, then trying to the name of alias, scripts, other memory crutches. Plus I can be useful on a machine without any aliases or so on.

comment Can't restart bind9 in ubuntu 12.04
Are you sure Bind is actually running? Did you perhaps break your config so badly that it is refusing to start? Look at your /var/log/syslog after trying to start/restart bind.

comment OpenVPN Appliance Routing Configuration
Well I can give you a lot more detail, if you spend some time describing your network in more detail. What other routers exist, what subnets, what IP addresses are assigned to what router interfaces, and what route tables exist.

Why would you be trying to cat the files together? Shouldn't you be using the --multi-volume option?
