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 shrink my hyper-v unallocated drive
@joeqwerty the screenshot was from inside his VM. He removed some partitions in the virtual machine, but still needed to shrink the VHD file. Easier to get if you had seen his previous question: serverfault.com/questions/591666/…

UEFI isn't really junk...it allows you computer to stop pretending its 1999.

comment specific machines on subnet randomly lose connectivity, but the rest of the network is fine
From one server that web0 can ping, and one it can't, use arp to check what it thinks the MAC address for web0 is. I suspect its an arp issue caused by the bonding.

comment My AD domain and DNS domain names are the same. Can this be resolved with SRV secords?
doing that will break DFS, group polocies, and probably other things...rather dangerous advice. See serverfault.com/questions/31686/…

That will work for www.example.com, but not example.com

RAID is not a backup. You do have backups, right? Right?

comment Hyper-V running out of MAC addresses? Any known issue?
Another key of interest is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Virtualization\Worker\CurrentMacAddress which should have the next available mac address to use. Does flipping the vm to static then back to dynamic help?

comment Hyper-V running out of MAC addresses? Any known issue?
Just to be sure the range is set properly, check the registry keys under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Virtualization?

comment How to investigate the cause of a 100% CPU event that lasted for hours?
If there is nothing in the logs, your best bet may be to have a cron job dump the output of ps to a file every 5 minutes and wait for it to happen again. Then you will have a record of what was running at the time.
