comment What do I need to be cautious of when changing a User Logon Name in Active Directory?
@NathanC by the very nature of your arguement, the only reason it is an exception is because being so dated it is less compatible, slower, or has other shortcomings, therefor, it does not work.

I agree with the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy herein.

@BillN yes, all the IP's assigned are available, (they also receive an IP if left to auto assign, that is properly within the scope 10.0.0.X) - occassionally when pinging 10.0.0.5 (the server), the very first packet will get thru, after that they stop.

it could be client side, yes, but on 2 different clients, one of which is a brand new windows install, using both wired and wireless, and even when connected directly to the main switch? Any idea of some tests or anything on where to start looking?

It does seem to be routing/switching, but I have plugged another working PC into the exact same ethernet cable, and it works perfectly. Any ideas where I could start looking why only these 2 new PC's are not connecting? The laptop (3rd pc) has the same problem regardless of where it is connected, and both the 3rd and the 4th have been connected directly into the cisco box, and did not work.

also a good question Greg - I have verified that the outlet works by connecting a different PC to the outlet, I have also connected the PC's at fault directly to the CISCO box in the server room. I have verified the cabling, and just about every other single possible hardware issue with connectivity.

as a quick note, we close here in about 10 minutes, hoping to get some more info in for monday to try anything suggested. I might be able to get in a bit after close unofficially, but not sure.

comment Quickbooks Server - insane fragmentation and disk space concerns
the decision has been made pretty much to just shoulder it when it happens, and to attempt to delay it to the most extent possible in the meantime.

comment Quickbooks Server - insane fragmentation and disk space concerns
@SvenW unfortunately the company isn't in a state to bring in a true expert, and the system is finally slowing down to a point where we have to make some moves in an attempt to do something. As it is, it takes about 30 seconds to 2 minutes to open a sales order for editing. The main goal here is to at least buy the company a few mor e months of reasonably increased usability in hopes that their situation is more suitable for fixing this problem at that time.
