This Stackoverflow question is the situation I am talking about... I'd like to accept the answer on ServerFault.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
They are separate sites. There is no mechanism to accept an answer from another site.
If you discovered a good answer elsewhere (in this case Server Fault), I would post it as an answer to your question and accept it. You also need to give attribution to the original source.
