comment Configure DCOM on Server Core
Firewall is off on this box, so that's not an issue.

comment Configure DCOM on Server Core
Yes, but I'd like to know how to fiddle with it on a single computer as well. GPO will work, but when it comes to testing configuration out on a single server, GPO can add an extra level of complexity.

comment Internet Explorer issues with wpad.dat
Do you have more than one network card, interface or IP address assigned to the computer? e.g., serverfault.com/questions/54232/…

comment Internet Explorer isn't auto-discovering http://wpad/wpad.dat auto-config
For me, it was due to multiple interfaces, and IE picking the VirtualBox hostonly adapter when calling the WPAD myIpAddress(). See also serverfault.com/a/425966/11594

comment ESXi and Windows Server CPU parking
This appears to have done the trick on our test bed: load is now being spread across all the vCPUs (according to Windows), and rather than 2 concurrent threads we've got 4 concurrent threads. We'll be running on the big rig (hopefully) today so will confirm then.

comment ESXi and Windows Server CPU parking
I'm not trying to outsmart VMWare, I'm trying to second-guess Windows (as it doesn't appear to be scheduling an app across all vCPUs) :-) I didn't think we'd need to do owt, mostly due to the lack of information about it online (implying most/everyone leaves it as is), but just wanted to explore this aspect.

comment ESXi and Windows Server CPU parking
It's something we've seen on a rig under a fairly heavy CPU load - a multi-threaded app isn't appearing to be utilising all the vCPUs, with resource manager marking a couple as "parked" (despite there being more than enough threads queued to run). It's the first time we've had to ponder whether parking and VMs really are an issue: the developer on his machine (physical) sees the same code use all cores (more cores than there are on the VM). We're scratching our heads a bit and just wanted to explore this particular aspect.
