comment Will UUID be the same if a disk moved from one machine to another?
Do you mean slices/partitions? Partition UUID's will be the same across different machines (they are stored in the MBR/GPT) but the UUID changes on each format. (So going from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6 with a format would result in a new UUID.)

comment How does the Cloud compare to Colocation? And development too
Excellent answer. I just wanted to comment outright one thing you alluded to with your elasticity comment but didn't specifically state: consider the case where your application has a particularly high load window (say lunchtime for a popular news website) then a 'cloud' architecture allows you to fire up additional nodes for your high load periods and completely turn them off at other hours.

Have you tried upgrading the motherboard BIOS and the network card drivers?

comment How to troubleshoot the suspected ethernet card failure
You want the System log. If it is truly the network adapter dropping link you should be able to correlate the RDP dropouts with these events in your system log. I would also try going in to device manager and setting the link speed from auto-negotiation to it's actual speed to rule that out, as well.

Yar of course; I just picked yours out of the two suggestions to really reinforce it! :)

comment Best way to secure a Windows VPS
I'll note that you should be very careful limiting to a specific IP for the port if you are on a dynamic IP at home. Not a big issue if your host provides a management interface to take control of the VPS, though.

comment HTTP Proxy for Windows server
I don't think SafeSquid can do what the poster is asking easily. His traffic needs to appear as though it is originating in the US and be reliable/performant, do you have any sources using (Safe)Squid for source address rewriting?

comment Connecting Vista/Win7 Clients to SBS2011 AD
Ah, that's unfortunate. It's probably not necessary to completely remove it so long as on the workstation you're testing from you add the primary DNS as the SBS2011 box and leave the secondary blank (i.e., completely cut the router out of DNS) on the adapter.

comment Connecting Vista/Win7 Clients to SBS2011 AD
That sucks regarding DHCP--are you certain you can't login to the router and disable it's DHCP? You won't have control over your internet address, but you should over your internal addressing schemes (likely 192.168.x.x). With the nslookup you are looking to check which server is responding to the request for the lookup; you should be able to 'nslookup connect' and have the SBS2011 server respond with itself. If it does then you can rule out DNS/DHCP issues and start focusing in on the SBS2011 box itself.
