comment Server 2012R2 DNS server returning SERVFAIL for some AAAA queries
@strongline EDNS packets come through fine. AAAA record for google works, as do a couple other sites I know have IPv6 running. Only chance made recently was getting rid of our last Server 2008R2 DC/DNS server and replacing with 2012R2.

comment Sharing iPhone photos on a network with no desktop available
Setup wifi. Install dropbox on iphone for completely automatic uploads, have something elsewhere that retrieves them from dropbox? Or owncloud. There are plenty of apps that can just automatically upload all photos. Wifi is probably about as fast as usb transfers anyways.

comment I am looking for software that can parse emails and expect emails within a grace period
I've been looking for something like this too, to reduce the amount of emails I have to look through on a regular basis...never seen anything that does it off the shelf, but probably not that hard to use fetchmail to pass emails into a script that parses them, then pass that into whatever monitoring or log parsing system you already have.

comment Can't use Windows Server 2003 Dell serial key with normal Windows Server 2003 Standard Cds. Help!
-1 This is definitely not something you should do to your server in a professional environment. And it still doesnt make your license legitimate.

@birdman3131 maybe that would help a little, but its still going to be significantly slower than extracting locally.

Have you tried adding something like "echo hello > %userprofile%\scriptran.txt" and checking if the file got created?

Oh sorry, I thought the issue was you wanted your network drives to mount reliably on login...

comment Group Policy Logon Script for Drive Mount is Executing but Not Applying
YES! Make samba accept their own domain accounts. Then you can actually tell who did what on the share, control access, and as an added bonus group policy preferences for adding network drives will work great. Shared passwords like that make security a nightmare.

Are you trying to connect to the share with different credentials than the user logging in? Why?

comment Blade Node Freezing
Try to eliminate hyperv as an issue by running memtest and benchmarking tools on it for awhile - it may crash under high load even without and VMs

And PHP can use a local mail server, but it doesn't have to.

Traffic capture with tcpdump, look for anything sending to port 25.

comment Inherited Ill-Conceived Hyper-V Thin-Client Environment: what now?
A single VM on a physical machine has plenty of advantages - easy to migrate to new hardware (even live, with 0 downtime), easier to backup and restore because there are no driver issues. Can even do things like Hyper-V replica for failover.

comment What's the minimum latency achievable for a shared drive?
Voting to close as too broad because engineering storage systems is an entire field of study. Basically, the minimum latency boils down to: "How much money do you have?"
