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 How much harm can a non-root user cause?
@hopelessn00b that's a horrible exploit that people can take advantage of even without a user account. Clearly you need a moat, with sharks.

@matt I believe port mirroring is the term you are looking for.

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.

+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.

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.

comment Server have 6 harddisk, how to set daily full backup/clone harddisk?
@Earl with RAID (and hotswappable disks), you don't even need to turn the server off. Pull out the failed disk, insert the new one. That's how you maintain uptime for a simple disk failure. Basically, the RAID controller keeps extra copies of your data spread out across the disks so even if one dies, all the data is still there. For RAID1 and 10, its actually a full extra copy of all data. For RAID5, it's just enough information to figure out what the lost data was and recover it.

See if firmware updates are available for the comcast router. I have seen some cable modem issues that cause similar behavior that were resolved in newer firmware.
