comment How to disable IPv6 on a particular network interface using Server Core?
Rewind - there's something going wrong with the name of the adapter, but I don't know what. sconfig shows this and from PS I see this. So I changed the first line of the script to $UnbindID = $(Get-WmiObject -Class 'Win32_NetworkAdapter' | Where-Object {$_.NetConnectionID -eq 'Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection'}).GUID but no value is coming back.

comment How to disable IPv6 on a particular network interface using Server Core?
I'm getting the error Select-String : Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Pattern' because it is null.. Here's what the registry looks like at that path. Any ideas?

My guess is that this will disable the entire IPv6 stack. Is there any way to disable it for a specific adapter?

comment What is the most ethically or morally questionable sysadmin task you have been given?
It is a grey area. IMHO if you knew what your boss was going to do then it would have been unethical for anyone to work on the project. Talking illegality on the other hand, that probably rests solely with your boss.

comment Unable to connect to local mail server in simple Windows network
I'll leave this open for a little while in case someone else has some more ideas. I think there is a routing issue because of the two NICs.

comment Remove PWA Site that has Missing Database
You should rollback your edit - the original title was correct. The PWA site is a different beast to a typical SharePoint site.

comment change SharePoint logo?
Because it's to do with using the product, not its administration or infrastructure. (Thanks for the accept!)

The tutorial applies to WSS 2.0 and contains steps that do not work for WSS 3.0 / SharePoint 2007.

comment How to remove a cumulative update from a SharePoint server
+1: That's right... Microsoft's official stance on SharePoint, SQL Server, etc. updates is that there is no uninstall. I think SharePoint setup has a "Repair" option but doubt that would help here, and who knows what side effects it might cause.

comment Can SharePoint local drafts folder be eliminated as an option at check out?
@Steve: Yes, it's all tied up with the ActiveX controls installed with Office 200x (the "Windows SharePoint Services support" option in client setup).
