We are getting this on Windows servers. We have 3 2970s doing this, all purchased at different dates. The latest one only started after the bios was upgraded

comment Expose Windows LDAP address book on the internet
Email clients need to query the directory for things such as auto complete. We also use LDAP directory services for other items such as video conferencing. The units are not internal and thus need public access into the directory.

Exactly where it is - there is settings for log off when idle and another for logging off disconnected sessions.

comment Solid State Hard Drive
Second this. We have started using SSDs in some machines but it is NOT for reliability reasons, purely for speed. They ARE better suited for users who tend to drop their machines however :)

Not all the drives are faster at random reads, especially when random writes are thrown in, like say a normal desktop user.

We do this and it works well. You can add command logging to the maintenance account too if you really want to look and see what has been done

comment Exchange 2003 HTTP Account Error
RPC over HTTP is enabled and working fine. Problem we are seeing is not specific to any profile, they are all doing it. To clarify, we are trying to use the HTTP type account, not the exchange type with the access over http option.

comment Inexpensive Remote Assistance software?
Great software. Never had trouble explaining the steps to get people online compared to the other options out there. Only downside is that is runs in usermode, so UAC prompts need to be clicked by the user.

comment nginx vs lighttpd for wordpress
Unless you are getting massive hits, any webserver will work fine. Even with massive hits, simply enabling a caching plugin will useless drop the load way way down.

comment Choosing the right backup solution - SCSI vs SATA tape drives
When you pass a certain level of data, tapes become unusable. Large multi site disk arrays are the only way to go. Faster, data is online (in readonly), and you can get more copies to step back in time.
