comment Preventing a read-write first automount after adding a VHDX onto a CentOS7 HyperV VM
Create a differencing disk against the VHDX, and attached the differencing disk instead. All writes will be directed to the differencing disk. That way if anything gets messed up, you can just throw away the differencing disk.

comment Can't convert virtual machine from ESXi to Hyper-V 2012 R2
Yes, you should remove it. It's not relevant to the question.

comment WDS 2012 R2 Server
@veel84 sounds like you are disabling the firewall service. don't do that. leave the service running and use the firewall control panel to turn it off. disabling the service causes weird networking issues, as you have seen.

comment Unplug of Netgear Switch Causes Cisco Link Drop on Remote Switch
I'm upvoting here. This is the correct answer. Your network is a mess. Your spanning tree modes are inconsistent. Plugging in a switch that runs spanning tree in anywhere in your network would be unpredictable. You're not going to get the help you need to fix this problem by chipping away at it in an internet discussion site. You need to hire an expert to fix your topology and get your switches configured consistently.

Just include the config for port 30. And remove the config from the body for the switches that don't matter.

I don't use DPM, so I can't answer that question. Sorry.

You missed the point of my comment. Log shipping and incremental backups are (effectively) the same size. If you couldn't keep up with log shipping, then you won't be able to send incremental backups fast enough, either.

Then what makes you think that an incremental backup will work any better? The transaction logs are what constitutes an incremental backup, and are also the logs that are shipped in log shipping. (This is an oversimplification but accurate enough for this conversation.)
