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 Inaccessible_boot_device after installing KB2919355 on Server 2012R2
Since you're already talking to Dell...I noticed there is also an H200 driver update being pushed by windows update, but no information on what it fixes...wonder if that is part of the fix?

comment Hyper-V suddenly gets RAW file system
What is the underlying storage system? Are the VDH files on a locak drive? DAS? SAN? High availability file server? And what version of hyperv? Also, side note, why is your backup a few months old? I'm hoping you just intentionally restored from the oldest available for testing...

comment How does Intel AMT (Active Management Technology) not interfere with the TCP/IP host stack?
My guess would be it looks at all traffic on those ports, and if its not something it recognizes passes it up to the os. But that's entirely speculation.

comment Are mixed disk types possible on a Dell Perc h710p?
+1 for NLSAS. Not much more expensive but less likely to cause controller issues.

comment Set iDRAC IP Address on Ubuntu 12.04 without Reboot?
It can be done with racadm - I've done it before. When I get back to the office I will look up how to do it.

comment Set iDRAC IP Address on Ubuntu 12.04 without Reboot?
@bt643 you don't need to change the server ip. Just set a laptop to the 192.168.0.x subnet and connect to the shared drac port. Bonding probably wont interfere, but if it does you can plug the laptop directly into the first port for a few minutes, since the servers connection is redundant.

Does this happen with all 64 bit machines? Tested with ine wuth a base OEM install not a corporate image? Try disabling printer and drive sharing, see if that makes any difference. What is the exact crash message you get?

comment Server have 6 harddisk, how to set daily full backup/clone harddisk?
@Earl you really should read your server's manual. You don't create hotswappable disks - they either are, or aren't. If they are hotswappable, the drives will usually be in a carrier that can be pulled out the front of the case without opening the server.
