Would it not be wise to setup a failover cluster spread over different physical hardware?

comment Setting up a VPN on Windows 2008 R2, should I use PPTP or SSTP?
We've actually gone for OpenVPN, works great and does exactly what we require.

comment Why can't I change the sstp vpn's port
what are you changing the port from/to? netstat -an from the command line tells you what ports you're already listening on

the port definitely isn't used by something else?

comment VMware Converter conversion of Windows TeamCity Server
DHCP reservation will require you keep the same MAC, which is fine. DNS will be ok as well, as you'll still have same server name/IP after the move. Once you've converted the VM, before you fire it up, you can change the settings, and allocate more RAM etc. The good thing about doing it this way is if anything goes wrong you still have the original VM to fall back on.

comment Is using a NAS with hot swap disks an effective way of cycling backups?
Thanks for the answer. Yes I felt that hot-swapping a disk on a regular basis may not the most effective method of what I'm trying to achieve. In this case I'll look at sourcing some 2TB external hard-drives, and cycling these. I'll take a look at rdiff-backup too as always open to ideas/suggestions about how we can improve our backups as they're so crucial.

comment Cisco 877 VPN: PPTP encryption not working
Apologies for topping and old topic, but I've followed this thread, and the thread it followed on from, with interest. We're in exactly the same position - need to configure a Cisco 877 router as a VPN server. However, the instructions in the first thread are to setup a PPTP VPN, which I now believe are insecure. If this is the case what are you using instead?

comment Server 2008 R2 Task Scheduler permissionf for a vbs script
setting 'Run whether used logged on or not' and 'Run with highest privileges' should be all you require for the task to run. If the issue does lie with FSO Delete folder then why does it run manually but not as a scheduled task? If the command is the issue, and there's no workaround, would there be any benefit to re-writing the script in Powershell?
