comment Help with simple networking setup
>same IP subnet but separate VLANS The Draytek routers support VLANs on their embedded switch. That allows you to have two servers attached to the router, both of which can see the router and the Internet beyond it but cannot see each other even though they are in the same subnet. I expect this is what Alakdae meant. This seems a reasonable solution provided the two srevers don't need to transfer any data between them.

Why was this marked down? This seems to me an entirely reasonable suggestion.

comment HP Proliant Servers - WMI query for system health
Search www.microsoft.com/downloads for "WMI Administrative Tools". These allow you to browse the various counters. They have fairly obvious names, so it isn't hard to pick out the ones you want. When I last looked a an HP it didn't provide any custom WMI classes, which is a bit surprising since even cheap Dells do.

comment After patches, installing item that reads from OS CD.. Service Packs re-apply?
Yes, the Windows update will reapply any hotfixes needed. The $hf_mig$ directory in C:\Windows plays the same role for hotfixes as ServicePackFiles does for service packs.

comment SQL Server 2008 faster in Windows XP than in Windows 2003 Server R2
I see you've resolved the problem, but in case anyone else is reading these comments, if the disk queue goes to the top of the graph you need to change the scale. The default has the top of the graph at a queue length of 1.0 and SQL Server will usually exceed this.

comment [updated]Basic business network problem, what should i do?
I know what the prices are in the North West of England, but no idea what they are anywhere else! I would guess the entry level option would be a few hundred pounds as a retainer then you'd pay by the hour when they actually do work. That's the way we work, though for your few hundred pounds we also remotely monitor the server, backups etc.

comment Real time monitoring of MS Windows servers and their services
>perfmon now supports limits other than 100 Hmmm, W2k3 perfmon supports this. Are you sure XP doesn't (I don't have an XP handy to check)? Just right click, go to the Graph tab and change the graph maximum.

Hmmm, possibly an authentication problem? If you do a net use \\target\ipc$ before opening the .msc does that make any difference?
