comment Forwarding hostheaders
SQUID listens on port 3128, so you'd need to configure inbound port 80 on your router to redirect to port 3128. Then you fiddle with the bloody complicated SQUID config file to configure the reverse relay. If you Google for "squid reverse proxy" or something similar you should find a howto.

comment Help with simple networking setup
OK how about using Alakdae's idea of VLANs. With Drayteks, and I'm sure other routers, you can put different ports on the embedded switch in different VLANs so packets cannot be switched between them. Both servers would see the Internet normally through the router but would have no access to each other.

>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.
