Five Tips for a Better sendmail Configuration – O’Reilly Media – Unix vendors bundle sendmail with the operating system and ship it out preconfigured. It is very easy to install the OS and use the sendmail configuration delivered with the system. Don't be fooled by this apparent simplicity. In the long run, it is better to take charge of your fate. Creating a custom sendmail configuration using current software and features selected for your environment will give you better performance, reliability, security, and maintainability. Here are some tips to get you started on building a better sendmail configuration.
mylvmbackup – mylvmbackup is a tool for quickly creating backups of a MySQL server's data files. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. The snapshot process takes only a small amount of time. When it is done, the server can continue normal operations, while the actual file backup proceeds.

Mail server statistics – The statistics are based on completely anonymous information and were performed using randomly chosen IP addresses. When connecting to a mail server defined as an MX in the domain configuration, it can reply in a different number of ways. It may not be online, or may be refusing connections.

Most systems admin is used to setting up the primary mail server, but many of them (like me) are not used to setup a backup mail server in a regular basis. This is my attempt to create a complete document on setting up a backup mail server and testing it for the dooms day. [...]
Altering LVM Configuration When a Disk is Not in ODM Anymore – blog’o thnet – If you remove a disk from the system using rmdev -dl hdiskX without having previously reduced the volume group to remove the disk from LVM, and thus have not updated properly the on-disk format information (called VGDA), you get a discrepancy between the ODM and the LVM configurations. Here is how to solve the issue (without any warranty though!).

Backup automatizzato dei database su SQL Express – SQL Server Express viene distribuito senza SQL Agent, quindi non è possibile schedulare internamente a SQL Server processi automatizzati, come ad esempio il backup.
