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 Protecting Servers from Dust
In that case, be sure to protect BOTH of those rooms from dust as much as you can. Drywall dust is very fine and some will come through the ac filters.

They SAY that. But many postings online claim they do not always respect robots.txt

comment Sharepoint - Announcement Permissions
Specifically its the version of IE used. IE8 should work fine. 9 may work. 10+ will have all kinds of strange problems with sharepoint.

you thanked me...but didn't answer the questions. Perhaps you hit send before you were done?

Are people using offline files on their computers? Are you using DFS for these shares?

comment Is a Virtualbox FreeNAS VM reliable (with a UPS)?
FreeNAS...inside virtualbox...using a USB drive for storage? Yeah...that's not likely to work so great. What functionality are you trying to get from FreeNAS that you can't do with the ubuntu host? Depending on what you are trying to do there are probably better ways to achieve it.

You really need to define "preconfigured" here. You seem to understand how to deploy software via GPO. Exactly what else are you trying to do?

when you renew it don't forget to make sure your contact email is up to date. Most registrars send you several reminder emails before a domain expires.
