comment How to make USB thumbdrive space visible as a datastore to ESXi 4.1 U1?
kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/… This seems to indicate that you can passthrough USB storage to a VM, but it appears the primary purpose of this feature is to allow support for usb license keys such as HASP

comment RAID strategy - 8 1TB drives
There is a difference between what is supported and what is recommended as practical for a production environment. I was making a recommendation not stating a quantitative fact.

comment Exchange restore from week old backup
+1, so long as you don't have circular logging enabled and the week old backup is your latest you should have all the logs to replay and recover up to time of failure

comment Shrink Partition on Production Server
Can I ask why you want to do this? I can understand that it is nice to partition your system files from your data files, but at this point it's already in production and working. Making the change will not improve anything so why does your boss want to do this at the risk of data loss and downtime?

comment DPM 2010 RC Mailbox Recovery Fails
Does it only affect Mailbox level recovery or is the whole Exchange recovery process basically broken in the BETA/RC? When try a database level restore I only get the option to overwrite the existing MDB and the option to recover the the RDB is greyed out.

comment Why do we ping the IP 4.2.2.2 to test connectivity?
That story sounds made up. Why would a manager of a NOC pick an IP at random (4.1.1.1) to use as their test of whether their NOC had connectivity? And secondly, after it failed and freaked him out why would he switch to another random IP (4.2.2.2)?

comment Blocking Android TouchDown access to Exchange
Corporate policy prohibits people from syncing mail to their personal devices. The exception is BlackBerry's on the BES and ActiveSync devices, as we can enforce password polices and remotely wipe if needed. I thought this kind of policy was pretty standard in the corporate world.

comment PPTP pass through on Cisco ASA 5505 (8.2)
I have done this, plus allowed GRE traffic as well, but it still isn't working. I can see hits on the PPTP rule when making connection attempts, but nothing is hitting the GRE rule.

comment MSSQLServer2008 R2\Instance, Only 4 Why?
Very true, this change is not going to affect a lot of people. But I still think it is a money grab, as they are taking features away from one product, only to make them available in a new and more expensive product.
