Plesk Update Panel

Seit langem mal wieder Zeit mich richtig um meinen VPS zu kümmern und gleich ein Problem gelöst.
Nach irgendeinem Plesk Update öffnet sich das Update Panel in einem neuem Fenster und lud dann nicht.
Kurze einfache Lösung dieses nicht-Fehlers:
Port 8447 in der Firewall freigeben
Anscheinend lief der Updater früher direkt im Plesk Backend und wurde jetzt ausgelagert.

Enabling Google Talk on Google Apps for Domain

Today i tried to connect to my gtalk hosted on google apps for domain but the connection was refused. Which, by the way, seems logical as i do not host any jabber/xmpp services on my domain neither redirect to gtalk.
A quick google search got me the Google help page How can my users chat outside the Google network with the following table for the DNS entries; replace with yourdomain.tld IN SRV 5 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 5 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269 IN SRV 20 0 5269

I logged in my Plesk 9.x.x. control panel and tried to add the SRV record. The first attempt was a failure, because i tried to paste the whole “” thing into the “Enter domain name” field. You will see that Plesk builds the correct entry itself when you fill in the fields.
Correct Input is:
Service name: 'xmpp-server' // 'jabber'
Protocol: 'TCP'
Enter domain name: ''
Priority: as given above
relative priority '0'
Target Host: as given above
Target Port: 5269
