comment How do I interpret a very high Avg. Disk sec/Write perfmon value?
@Get-HomeByFiveOClock: As far as I can see, the linked question is about "% Disc read time". Does the same apply to "Adv. Disc sec/Write"?

@Get-HomeByFiveOClock: Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. And, of course, I'll definitely use a more diplomatic wording when handing over the problem. :-)

Note: The drives show up as "XENSRC PVDISK SCSI Disk Device" in Device Manager, which indicates that the drive is virtualized. Does that invalidate my measurements?

comment SQL Server Windows Authentication fails after tonight's security updates: The login is from an untrusted domain
Well spotted, I just discovered that myself and wanted to write exactly the same thing. :-) Apparently KB3002657 causes a lot of trouble today.

@Reaces: Thanks for the hint, but the clocks are perfectly synchronous. Yes, the DC is the next machine scheduled for replacement.

Thanks. I was hoping that there was some standardized protocol, but alas...

comment Setting myhostname and Mydomain in postfix for mutiple domains
What problem are we talking about? I thought you just wanted advice on what to use for myhostname and mydomain...

@ANW: Ah, ok, sorry, didn't see that. So you are saying that host mail.s....com does not return 8...?

And what did you set them to?

Do you understand how DNS works? If yes, make sure that the A record of myhostname points to the IP address of your server (i.e., if you type host mail.domain1.tld you should get your own IP address). If not, you might want to read up on that... it's among those things that you "should know" when you are running your own mail server.

Using Strawberry with the "usual" CGI setup works perfectly fine.

@Colyn1337: No. (Would it make a difference?)

comment How can I backup an SQL Server database using Windows Backup?
I know that I shouldn't -- I wouldn't entrust my data on such a poorly documented feature. Still, I'm curious if it is possible, theoretically: SQL Server does provide a VSS writer, and Windows Server Backup is a VSS requestor, so I'll leave the question open for now. Maybe it's just a question of matching those two up (there are, for example, instructions online on how to do this for the Hyper-V VSS writer).

@pauska: Personally, I'd be interested in Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2012. (I deliberately keep the question more general to make it more useful to others.)

comment Free Perl for IIS
@Slicedpan: Not yet. Since it's just for a simple web statistics script, I'd like to keep the configuration as simple as possible.

comment Are there drawbacks of using Windows Server 2012 Essentials as a public web server?
Theoretically yes, but you are not allowed to run Foundation edition in a VM, which means you'd need physical HW for it.

comment Keeping PHP up-to-date on a Windows IIS server
Unfortunately, moving the web application that requires PHP to a Linux server is not an option for various reasons.
