In order to be able to use the live partition migration in Proxmox, the KVM partition needs to be on NFS or iSCSI.
Here is the process for an NFS storage.
- shut down vm
- rsync -av /var/lib/vz/images/<VMID> /mnt/pve/<NFS VOL>/images/
- edit /etc/qemu-server/<VMID>.conf
- change ide0: local:<VMID>/vm-<VMID>-disk-1.raw to ide0: <NFS VOL>:<VMID>/vm-<VMID>-disk-1.raw

Check the private key, the CSR, and the signed cert
To check that the private key, the CSR, and the signed cert belong to the same set, you need to compare the MD5 outputs:
openssl rsa -noout -modulus -in [domain_name].key |openssl md5
openssl req -noout -modulus -in [domain_name].csr |openssl md5
openssl x509 -noout -modulus -in [domain_name].crt |openssl md5
Business Analytics: Focus on Smarter Data Warehousing
While these numbers may certainly be up for debate, the main point to retain, is that by improving the algorithms, i.e. the software used in your systems, you can attain much higher efficiencies then by replacing the hardware alone. Taking a holistic approach, using an Information Agenda that takes into account all aspects of the data lifecycle paves the way for a better Data Warehouse that enables smarter Business Analytics, avoiding the tar pit of never ending hardware and software upgrades.

After upgrading a Domino Server to 8.5FP1 we noticed intermittent email bouncing even though the emails were correctly delivered to the email server. The server response was:
451 Unable to complete command, DNS not available or timed out
This message is misleading. What it really means that Domino wasn’t able to verify the sender domain’s RDNS (reverse DNS) entry.
Disabling Reverse DNS Check
If your Domino infrastructure already has a security mail gateway, then this extra protection on the Domino server isn’t needed and disabling it will speed up the SMTP operations of the Domino Server. Here are steps on how to turd this feature off.
Steps to turn off rDNS checking on the Domino Server
Make sure you already have a Configuration Settings document for the server(s) to be configured.
From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab and expand the Messaging section.
Select the Configuration Settings document for the mail server or servers you want to restrict mail on, and click Edit Configuration.
Click the Router/SMTP – Restrictions and Controls – SMTP Inbound Controls tab.
Set the field “Verify sender’s domain in DNS” in the Inbound Sender Controls section do “Disabled,” and then click Save & Close
