comment Why did robocopy cause my Windows 2012 server to hang last night?
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.

comment Configure a “hardened” user account that an attacker would have a hard time abusing
as a general principle then, is it wise to disable internet access for a server, even if the perimeter firewall won't allow any connections in to that server?

comment ESXi running 2 x Windows 2012 setup advice
Yes you need to be very careful taking snapshots of VMs, as if you rollback to a previous checkpoint you can screw up the AD replication. Good thing about a core OS install is no GUI, no IE and minimal services/roles means small attack surface, and minimal area to update. This should mean you don't need to snapshot that often - just fire and forget.

comment Do I need 2 NIC cards to forward public IP to private IP?
Hi, you may be getting slightly confused here as NAT/PAT is typically done on the router (you can do it on a server however). The router will have 2 or more interfaces - one connects to the internet side, the other to your local network.

it could well be a driver issue, as we've got windows server 2012 on there which is pretty recent, and im not 100% all the hardware has totally up to date drivers. the box was supplied without and os, which i put, then put the drivers on off the cd. ill see if i can update them

it was logging to a text file. the system was completely unresponsive, and when I rebooted it today the server logs stopped last night at 530pm, nothing after that.

The flags are taken from the log file, the params I specified are: /MIR /copy:DATSOU /mt:128 /R /W

Yeah there's no way it should have completely hung the server. I'm happy for the network to be saturated but it shouldn't overwhelm the server. the option I specified was just /MIR (equivalent to /e and /purge) the /s must be from /copy:datsou
