comment Is mac address based security for single user Web Application a good idea?
MAC address can be spoofed though. Can you not just set a username / password on the site?

comment High quality reading about storage systems
Interesting subject but may not meet the requirements for this site as it is not in the question/answer format. There is a reddit sysadmin discussion group which may be more suitable.

Not all users are local admin on the workstation - I believe this may be part of the issue. Will check out GP preferences.

This is an option I will take a look at.

No the S: isn't already used - and if it is the mapping is deleted. I'm looking into Win 8 handling it differently depending on user/admin privileges.

Although I haven't mentioned it does do this - we recently changed the location of the s: drive so to ensure everyone migrated over correctly we do a delete first.

comment Why did robocopy cause my Windows 2012 server to hang last night?
Thanks for this Lucretius. Interestingly robocopy has hung on this server again (fortunately it's not crashed the whole server) and this was copying from an internal hard disk to an external, encrypted hard disk! (I need to figure out a way to encrypt our external hard drives and get them working with wbadmin - it's not liking my truecrypt encrypted partitions though). So although the original error is almost certainly a driver issue on the nic_team (it's the latest driver too) I'm also having problems with robocopy without crossing the network. Shame cos when it works it's great.

Unmanaged switch so no access to logs I'm afraid. The Win2012 logs told me very little, nothing along the lines of what I'm suspecting anyhow.

I'm starting to think it may be related to the NIC. The server has dual NIC, with latest drivers, so I don't think it's a driver issue. However, we have teamed the NICs, using the inbuilt Windows NIC teaming feature. I've not uncovered much but have come across (anecdotal) warnings about using Windows NIC teaming and would like further information on this.
