comment How to route load from one server machine to another on falure?
I have edited your question to make it more clear that you are talking about 2 servers, not 1 server with 2 CPUs.

For starters, CPU != server.

comment can I script leaving/joining a domain (and not have to reboot)?
Actually the fix is to make them not change their computer account password and make it not expire. On my phone or I would look up the procedure for that.

comment Strange Bittorrent Log On My Server
If it were a DDOS attack, this would not help. Your server will send a 302 response instead of 404, using roughly the same amount of traffic - plus now the CPU load of processing redirects. At the very least, it should send a 301 redirect so well behaved clients consider it permanent. And if it is a DDOS attack, the owners of bittorrent.com probably wont be too happy that you're passing it along to them...

comment ConfigMgr - Really really slow PXE boot between Hyper-V machines
Dynamic memory off makes no difference. Client and server are on same vlan/subnet so traffic only goes through switches. The problem comes and goes making it hard to diagnose.

comment Wordpress High load average 18 and cpu 81% on a dedicated server
Diagnosing this needs to be done from the command line - SSH into it and look at the output of 'top' and 'iotop' for starters.

comment Virtualizing branch office servers
Excellent points, thanks. They do have decent UPS units that last about 30-45 minutes which takes care of most outages.Unfortunately some are almost rural locations that get 3-4 hour outages every few months (seemingly always on a holiday weekend when I'm on call). Extending their runtime may help. The network gear does come up first - but their crappy cable modems sometimes take 20 minutes to reconnect. Redundant ISPs means falling back on dialup - no other high speed options (yay monopolies), but might be an option.

Getting a proper business router would fix it.

What model of router is it?

comment Stop file being deleted on NFS mount
An easier option might be to alter your demo provisioninh to use symbolic or hard to its files. Then they all still fully work and can delete without affecting each other.

comment Trim support in Hardware RAID (Perc H700)
Just because they arent blocked doesnt mean its a good idea. I would not expect to get any support on this server while those drives are installed.

comment How to clone, disjoin & rename a Windows 2008 R2 VM offline, then rejoin domain online
Note that sysprepping a system may break some software. Or course, so may changing the computer name.

comment Cancel / block a task triggered with delay by windows “task scheduler”
The linux tools for handling a ups are quite good. If you have any linux systems you might want to have them deal with the ups and tell the windows machines when to shutdown.

Any idea if Hyper-V replica can be done between AMD and Intel servers?

comment INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE on Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines
One though...does the amount of ram differ between working and broken vms? Try cloning a working vm then give it the vhd of a broken one. That would eliminate any weird hyperv config issues. Or just make sure every setting even ram size and such is identical to an ok vm.

comment INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE on Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines
Also I would build a vm, apply all except the latest updates and reboot a few times to see if it breaks. Then try again with newer updates one at a time. If it is an update breaking it you might narrow down which one that way (then tell us so we can remove it from our servers!). I was bitten by the KB2919355 fiasco. I dont want a repeat!

comment INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE on Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines
Scary thing to try...but is the problem limited to VMs or are the hosts affected too? Have you tried rebooting one of the cluster nodes a few times to make sure it comes back up? May be better to find out now than Christmas morning...
