comment Installing Ubuntu guest crashes Hyper-V host
Definitely a bug, we've got Solaris, among other unsupported OS's running in Hyper-V and I've never seen an issue like this myself.

The above answer by @Brennan is exactly what I would recommend.

comment Brocade 200E Switch - Fibre Channel
What he's saying is that those are Ethernet adapters, what you need are FC HBAs to be able to use that switch. The cards you mention just use optical interconnects, and are not true fiber channel.

comment Does Hyper-V support GPT disks on the host?
I will also confirm this, as I have 2 Hyper-V deployments using nothing but GPT disks for storage.

comment Suggestions for splitting server roles amongst Hyper-V virtual servers / RAID6 or RAID10? / AppAssure
Yes, raid 10. You want the mirroring and speed.

I do not believe what you're asking for is possible.

comment Dell Poweredge 1950 with Perc 5i keeps losing raid config -> “Foreign Configuration Found”
Agreed, those are good first steps. Odd that it gives you that error. If the raid card is dying in some way (card failure, battery, etc), the config should still be on the disk. I would expect that you would get a message about a config mismatch instead.

comment IIS Host Header Bindings not working correctly
Sounds like a configuration issue. Can you list out what your redirect rule is, and exactly how you're doing it. URL Rewrite, etc?

comment exchange 2010 HA questions
Well, I haven't seen any "guides" per se. Any yes most talk is about larger installations, but I'd say it's safe to assume you can do everything on one server. I'd personally recommend keeping your actual Exchange infrastructure privately addressed and add a TMG server or something like it to be a reverse proxy for you. A service like that has a whole host of benefits to it.

With that latency you'll be able to do a live failover of the database(s) no problem. Makes rolling patching a breeze. Enterprise isn't need in your case with the small amount of users you have.

comment Powershell: lastLogonTimestamp blank for some users
@pipTheGeek You're right, the info is replicated, albeit delayed by default.

comment Powershell: lastLogonTimestamp blank for some users
Is there a specific reason you don't want to query all the DCs? It's the only way you're going to get all of the information for every user. LastLogontimestamp data isn't necessary stored on every dc for every user. The reason some commands return that data is that they are built with that caveat in mind.

comment How can we allow all users to view full details for meetings in an Exchange 2010 Resource Mailbox's calendar?
You can't "log into" a room calendar in Exchange 2010, it's not possible. Follow the powershell example below, it's what you want.

comment Exchange and mobile devices
You should really contact your local admins and ask them specifically what they are or aren't enforcing in your ActiveSync policy. You should also refer to your local security policy wherever you work, usually they are posted online or on paper. It should state the answers you are looking for.

Powershell is the preferred method.

Upvote. Hide all of your disabled users from the GAL.

comment What breaks if someone has a missing or misconfigured “_autodiscover” SRV record
I'm not sure how that is the accepted answer? It doesn't go into what your issue with Out Of Office was. It also is a bit wrong, as public folders are not necessary in a pure Exchange 2010 environment. OOO, OAB, and Free Busy are not shared via public folders in EX 2010, they are web servies, as you can see by the output you pasted below.

comment Hyper-V and Fail over cluster 2 nodes Virtualizing DC and Secondery DC
