@scottalanmiller There's just something about the bezel on that laptop that makes me think of my old EEE 901 pc. It looks so "cheap" compared to other devices in the price range. The specs do look decent, though it appears to be designed for Ubuntu. I wonder if there are any binaries exclusive to their hardware that would prevent one from running Fedora or alternatives on it?

RE: [RESOLVED] Mounting an SMB network share on Ubuntu during SSH logon process
I've never had to do this before but could think of handling it one of two ways:
- placing a mount command in their bashrc/profile scipt
- use autofs and a secrets file per user such as this
I'm sure others will have much better solutions to mine though :)
RE: Examining the Dell PERC H310 Controller
@scottalanmiller , the H200, H310 and IBM M1015 using the same chipsets are real raid controllers just without caching or BBU. They're entry level devices meant for entry-level servers but are widely sought after for those running software "raid" (i.e. BTRFS, ZFS, and mdadm) due to their ability to be used in IT mode.
I have created Raid 5, 6, and 10 arrays on these units and imported them successfully on other, more feature complete, controllers such as the H710 and P420.
@quixoticjeremy, the agent being python so it's platform agnostic to a large degree I would assume? Further fuel for the first person stating python would have been a better replacement for Java than JS.
Though, to play devil's advocate, can node.js not handle the same tasks that python is doing for the agent? On windows it appears it's just a wrapper around a slew of wmi calls.
RE: Linux OS advice for building a SAM-SD
They've always been against using software RAID. Even back then. Of course, if you're at all cognizent of the thing, and the fix is super easy, install mdadm.
I'm curious about this statement as Proxmox fully supports ZFS filesystems via GUI and CLI...
RE: Hitting the limits of the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter
@JaredBusch, The ERX, ER8, and Infinity all have faster processors and more cores than the ERL. I know that the ERX has other failings, but it handles QoS and OpenVPN much better than the ERL does.
The ERL could not handle fqcodel on my 150/150 but the ERX could. It may be worth the $49 to test it.
RE: MC17: The State of the Art in System Administration Part 1
I still think you guys should have outfitted @scottalanmiller with a go-pro for an FPS (first person speaker) effect :)
RE: What Do You Want in a Helpdesk and Ticketing System?
Proper scheduling! That's one of the major missing pieces for all the less expensive PSAs/ticketing systems. This is about the only thing that ConnectWise does really well:
While in a ticket you can assign a status and then schedule the ticket for either
a) perform this task on this day/time (i.e: you've made arrangements with a user to do X at time Y and it should take Z time to complete)
b) follow-up with the user at this date/time for whatever purpose you deem necessary (i.e. pre-ticket closure email ensuring the issue is resolved to the client's satisfaction)
Exchange / Outlook integration a huge plus...
Also, time tracking via manual entry or start/stop.
