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

comment How to investigate the cause of a 100% CPU event that lasted for hours?
Do you have any sort of monitoring system or is that graph just from the VPS provider? Looking at disk and memory usage for that timeframe may be helpful.

By thin provisioned you mean dynamically expanding VHDs? They can have a pretty big performance impact sometimes.

comment Hyper V with a DELL MD3000 Poor I/O
Is the disk using refs or ntfs? Are the virtualization extensions installed and working in the virtual machines? Are the VMs 2012 as well?

comment Emulating a different CPU architecture per a VM on VMware ESXI
As long as you are installing a 32bit OS in your VM it shouldn't be an issue. Just tell your compiler what processor you want it to compile for.

Try with just one server listed. Windows isn't guarenteed to use the primary as its first choice.

That shows it works for the 192.168.2.4 DNS server. Do you have any other DNS servers configured normally?

That worked. I am lucky enough to have another server with a private unfirewalled connection between the two.

I have tried "Warn me" and "Connect and don't warn me". Neither option allows me to proceed, I get the error shown in the screenshot.
