Does it have anything along the lines of yum verify (http://bencane.com/2013/12/23/yum-plugins-verifying-packages-and-configurations-with-yum-verify/) or yum history (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/yum-history-command/)?

Genuine question! Last time I properly used FreeBSD I don't think pkg_add even existed? Have downloaded the 10-current ISO and will give it a try in a VM over the weekend..

I know what you're saying, but to me if you're coding to a specification (even if he wrote it himself!) which says "if X then Y", surely you should create a test to ensure it meets the spec..?

Or okay, he didn't create the test, but perhaps someone else should have before integrating the patch. But yeah, hindsight, 20/20, etc :)

you cannot fail a Windows Server instance over from one physical Windows Datacenter server to another and then fail it back in under 30 days without violating the license of the Windows Server instance.

If both servers have datacenter licenses, then you can.

P8, paragraph 2

... licenses may only be reassigned to new hardware after 90 days. This, however, does not restrict the dynamic movement of virtual OSEs between licensed servers. As long as the servers are licensed and do not simultaneously run more instances than the number for which they are licensed, you are free to use VMotion and System Center Virtual Machine Manager to move virtualized instances between licensed servers at will.
