Several months ago I asked a question on server fault. Someone just answered it but we replaced our 10.4 deployment with a 10.5 deployment earlier this year and I now have no way to verify the solution. What should I do? I could just blindly accept the answer but I don't feel right about that but I also don't want the correct answer to be lost.

If you can't verify it, i upvote it if you think it's helpful but don't mark is as the answer for the question.

  • +1 If you can't verify, and there's no way for you to be reasonably sure it's correct, don't mark it accepted. It's better to "languish unanswered" than to be potentially incorrect/misleading.
