comment What is the recommended way to give a new machine the same name as an old one in a domain?
True! But could use domain root DFS naming instead anyway and try to steer away from manually typing an SMB path to a server share anyway - a bit like we should shy away from connecting to a server's desktop and automate or remote script all configuration changes and troubleshooting in a perfect world ^^

comment What is Microsoft Exchange? Why is it so popular?
It's been a few years now so this answer is a bit outdated in regard to new functionality...

comment How do I know if my Linux server has been hacked?
The most advanced attack tools require zero skill these days and are easily available and some are extremely stealthy by default and by design. Botnets / zombies can be idle a long time before being used for harm but bugs in the attack tools can cause unwanted crashes and weird behaviour etc.

comment Patch Management and System Inventory on a Windows network?
An agent is the way to go on those older versions of Windows, perhaps you've run into some known issue on certain clients that can be resolved by contacting Microsoft?

comment How do I setup a wide area wireless network?
I've stumbled upon Ubiquity and their Unifi access point technology that so far seems like an actual alternative to the Cisco stuff, at last: ubnt.com/unifi - their controller is just a server app instead of an expensive appliance and their access points are much cheaper and initial testing shows great promises on stability and range.

comment Windows Server 2008 64-bit RAM going somewhere
Generally. using as much memory as possible to buffer and speed stuff up is A Good Thing (TM), which Windows likes to do when there is free memory wasting money just sitting there...

comment what can I do when the server refused to connect by ssh
+1 Always ensure console-level access to a server, that's also why virtual servers are so nice.

comment Centralized change of resolution in Windows
Why would you ever want to do that? The screen resolution is an individual machine-specific setting that each client should handle by itself to fit the display attached.

comment GPO: how to limit the users able to logon to PC?
Why is this a requirement in the first place? If there's some kind of security concern behind this policy I would be concerned it's misunderstood ^^

comment Does Microsoft TMG 2010 handle websockets, at least through SSL?
Oh, I haven't even thought about the reverse condition, establishing websocket connections to outside sites. Well, in this case for a published site I've disabled every type of content filtering that exists on the TMG without success. For some reason the SSL doesn't help either, something with the bridging that disturbs it perhaps.

comment Full direct bi-directional data swap between two storage volumes?
Perhaps the focus would be better directed at automating the restore process or automating the deployment of environment configurations - if those two are such a bother you want to avoid them, I'd want to fix them before doing anything else at all, really.

comment Full direct bi-directional data swap between two storage volumes?
I see, well if the simple data swap fails you'll at least get to test those restore processes thoroughly which would be a Good Thing (TM )^^

comment Server 2008r2 doesn't reboot after patch Tuesday and can't remote into it
You always need KVM/IPKVM so you can peek at what a server is doing even when the operating system is unresponsive - at least if the server is somewhat important.

comment Can I resize a software RAID-5 in Windows Server 2k8 R2 Enterprise?
You can only extend JBOD in software on Windows. +1 But regardless, you need to add a backup solution, unless what you're storing is completely volatile in nature and nothing you want to keep. RAID isn't backup, it's (in this case) just for improving availability and reliability.

comment How do I block Internet access for a user on a Windows 7 Professional machine?
As it stated "warehouse" I based my thoughts on this on not being a typical home use-situation in which mac address filtering or gateway fiddling could be fine ^^ Also, physical access to a machine generally equals very easy pwnage regardless of being local admin or not and regardless of actual know-how (yes it can sort of be addressed but it's not an easy task).
