I'd like to understand why my question was closed so I can avoid that happening in the future (And of course to find a way to find an answer for the issue I'm having on the first place)

Thank you.

Side note: please don't put [tag]s in your titles, that's what the tag section is for. (And tags at the end of it inside square braces look like close notices, so it's actually detrimental.) – Mat Mar 24 '13 at 8:01

It was closed as off-topic, because it is not a programming question. It is probably more suitable for Server Fault. But read their FAQ before asking there, to see if it is on-topic there.

Well, the FAQ didn't really give me much insight. I believe it's a programming question because all we have done to fix this issue is shell programming related. – Ryoku Mar 24 '13 at 7:33
@Ryoku But that is not evident by the question. Maybe if you show your code for fixing the issue, and explain how it fails, it could be re-opened. No guarantees though. – user000001 Mar 24 '13 at 7:39
@Ryoku I would say that while shell scripting is normally on-topic here, this case would not apply, because the type of work you are doing here is server-admin related, not really programming. I understand there is a little bit of cross-over here, but I suspect you would get better answers from Linux server admins. – Andrew Barber Mar 24 '13 at 8:11
Very well, we have also raised the issue (obviously) to Microstrategy. But thanks, I see why it was closed. – Ryoku Mar 24 '13 at 8:24
