comment If both forwarders have answer, why does DNS server still timeout on request?
Most of my testing was actually from our DNS servers.

comment If both forwarders have answer, why does DNS server still timeout on request?
Based on what I see in the log, it is forwarding all external requests. I see request come in from another one of our servers, request to forwarder and then response. If both forwarders timeout I sometimes see requests to another IP that I assume is a root hint server but the end result there is a serverfail response back to the original requester. If there is something else to consider here let me know.

comment Problems raising DFL from 2000 to 2003 with Exchange 2000 hosted on same machine?
good question... I'm in a small company with no specific server admin position (for a couple more months) and performing maintenance in production environment, so trying to both make the least number of changes possible and in the safest possible way. Maybe being overly cautious but if someone has experience with this scenario, or maybe have much more experienced than I and can easily test it, then could just raise DFL and remove server without having to worry about uninstall.

comment Why are we having problems with multiple nics in office and production networks going to 100mbps mode?
The drops in office probably have cables that were made during installation. These are between about 20 to 60 feet long through the ceiling. One of the longest runs was connected directly to a desktop gigabit switch and the primary switch lights report the connection as gigabit. I don't believe production has any custom made cables and all are between 1 to maybe at the max 10 feet.

Yeah, multiple cables involved in two environment and some switched out over time so I think that can be ruled out. Just bought a cheap cable tester when pikcing up another gigabit switch so will try that out later. I'll post updates as I go along. I am also about to add some potentially valuable info that could reveal how ignorant I am on networking, but I'm a web app developer in a small company that has no admin so go easy on me.
