comment Looking for concise set of instructions for upgrading Vmware 5.1 to 5.5
official documention is not well written, scattered, disjointed - I'm sorry, but you don't know what you're talking about. This IS the document. It IS well written, it is NOT scattered or disjointed. This is the document I've followed without issue. - google.com/…

Are you asking a question? I don't see a question, I see a statement.

comment how do I fix “The specified domain either does not exist…” when issuing net user /domain command?
1. What are you trying to accomplish? Your command will list the user account details, nothing more. Are you trying to verify that the account exists in the domain? 2. Have you verified that the client machine you're running the command on has the correct DNS servers configured?

comment Deleting reverse zone in windows 2003 DNS server
Reverse lookup zones aren't required for AD and most certainly aren't created when you install the DNS role on a DC. Why don't you tell us the actual error message you're getting when you try to promote a new DC.

comment Inter-VLAN Malicious Code Scanning
If you absolutely must do it this way you could use a separate switch between the two sets of systems rather than using VLAN's and deploy an IPS/IDS between the switches.

comment Backup strategy for millions of files in lots of directories
1. A backup to disk job is probably going to be faster than a direct backup to tape job. You can then configure/run a duplicate job, which will backup the backup to disk files to tape. 2. Yes, hosting the files on a VHD and backing up the VHD should be faster. You'll need to make sure that the backup product you use to back up the VHD allows for file level restores from the VHD.

comment Windows Firewall - Printing
1. It would be nice if your question included more detail, like what operating system you're using. 2. Go to Control Panel>Windows Firewall and click the Restore defaults button, then start from scratch.

comment Exchange 2007 and PSTs
I don't see it as being that difficult. You can find examples on importing PST file en masses at these links: knowthenetwork.com/2009/07/… - technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691363(v=exchg.80).aspx

comment Active Directory OpenDNS forwarding
OK, then all of your domain clients should only use your AD DNS server(s) for DNS. Do not configure any alternate DNS servers on any of the domain clients, including the DC. Leave the OpenDNS forwarders in the configuration of the DNS server and leave it at that. Configuring any domain clients to use DNS servers other than your AD DNS server(s) goes against best practice and is asking for problems.

I don't understand the dilemma. You can import the PST file into the mailbox from Outlook or from the EMS using the Import-Mailbox command.

comment Cisco - what is the purpose of a gigabit ethernet switching module
You've purchased a switch module but you have no switch to install the module in. If you're looking for a study kit, take a look at this link. You'll get lifetime support, tested good equipment and additional study materials and tools. I've purchased kits from here before - certificationkits.com/ccna-certification-kits

comment To log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the allow log on through terminal services
1. Check the Local Security Policy and make sure that the groups you expect have indeed been granted the Allow logon through Terminal Services user right. 2. Double check the membership of those groups. 3. Check the Security tab of the RDP-Tcp connection in Terminal Services manager and verify that the aforementioned groups have the User Access and Guest Access` permissions set to Allow.
