If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

@sobrique in this context KVM likely stands for kernel based virtual machine -linux-kvm.org

comment What is a reasonable maintenance schedule for Windows PCs?
RAID on desktop class systems often causes more problems than it solves, causing data loss when the controller or motherboard fail and identical replacements aren't available. Sometimes even WHEN identical replacements are available.

Virtual network as it relates to virtualization and a virtual private network are two entirely different things.

Of course you have a virtual network. The virtual machine has some sort of network connection, which is part of your virtual network. Unless you figured out a way to plug a real network card into a virtual concept of a pci slot...

This is done by adjusting the metric in the routing table. Why do you want to avoid that?

Why does it matter what order they are listed in? Tell us what you are actually trying to achieve - there is probably a better way.

comment Store PGP keys on Active Directory/Exchange?
+1 for the squimish about extending the schema. There is no undoing it, and breaking AD would make for a very bad day. But it is a valid thing to do, Microsoft apps do it all the time.

comment Can one server see traffic to another server inside a VLAN?
@Devon that's why you need to ENSURE vlans are setup properly...just as you need to ensure physical devices get plugged into the correct switch. If you can't trust the network environment, you need to use encryption, either through SSH, IPSec or some other VPN technology. If this is really sensitive info (credit cards, SSN's, proprietary company secrets, etc) use encryption even if you DO trust the network. And use full disk encryption as well - anyone with physical access to the machines it's stored on can see your data.

comment Can one server see traffic to another server inside a VLAN?
@davidschwartz I read it that way too...if that is his concern, these servers need their own private vlan, separate from the others.

@hopelessn00b that's a horrible exploit that people can take advantage of even without a user account. Clearly you need a moat, with sharks.
