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 Best Configuration for my new servers
One warning if all your DCs are virtual: make certain their time is syncing properly and not drifting. HyperV should take care of it but it doesn't always work. If the clocks get too far out of sync it can break things.

comment Heartbleed vulnerability when SSL provided by unaffected servers?
@hopelessnoob that is indeed why I said may include. Getting a cert reissued and installed may take a few hours, but a comprimised key can make you vulnerable for years to come.

And the contents of the memory of the load balancer may include the private key of the SSL certificate, so the certificate should be reissued in Scenario 1.

comment Stacking Servers on top of each other without a using a rack
@lothar shelves come in many sizes. Pick ones that will fit the servers. I thought that point was self evident.

The question is not if the table can handle it, its whether the case of the server at the bottom of the pile can. It likely wasn't deaigned to do that.

Audible ping and pull cables until the beeping stops? If they didn't want me unplugging then they would have labeled then :)

comment Where is my bandwidth?
Check the configuration on the Cisco ASA. If it's set to just a static IP, copy the IP/subnet/gateway settings to the laptop. If it's set for PPPoE, set that up on the laptop (and probably call Verizon for the password). You might have to do this after hours to avoid irritating the rest of the staff :) If the speed test is still low direct to the laptop, yell at verizon until they fix it. If it's fine, the problem is in your network. Ideally run a speed test through the ASA just before you disconnect it to compare to.

Have you done a proper speed test by plugging the modem directly into a laptop and running the speed test from there (configuring PPPoE if needed)? That test usually instantly determines if it is an ISP issue or an internal network issue.
