comment One way audio on SIP phone on one call direction.. where to look next?
Is it possible the VOIP module needs it's own IP address programming in? Apart from that I'm stumped.

comment ntbackup fails to save to NAS under windows sbs 2003
Hi Kartsen, as you've spotted, the SBS wizard just uses NTBackup and the restores are just NTBackup restores. The wizard is pretty good at simplifying what can be some messy scripting, but as you've found it has it's limitations. The nice thing about scheduling a script is you can have your script do things like "dir \\192.168.x.y\backup\pdc 1>>log.txt 2>>&1" to help diagnose errors (in this case presumably you'll get an "access denied" error.

comment Decent hardware (< $1.500) for Hyper-V dev/test machine
In that case I recommend a Poweredge 440. I use one at home because it's (very) quiet. It's quieter than most workstations. Mine has a Perc5/i and 4 1TB disks. Note however that the 440 takes a max of 4GB RAM. The Poweredge T100 is the 440's successor and will take 8GB RAM but they're not so common on eBay (though there's one on the UK eBay at the moment at £200). You'll need T adaptors for the SATA cables because of the way the disks are positioned.

comment Is it worth putting high-performance drives in a home NAS?
SAS and SATA disks are basically the same but built to different standards. The biggest difference is the seek time i.e. the average time to jump to a random sector. SAS disks are twice as fast as SATA in seeking, and the seek time is especially important when the disk is doing a lot of random access. In general databases (including Exchange) do a lot of random access so they run a lot faster on SAS than on SATA. SAS disks are more reliable than SATA, but in these days of RAID6 that's less of an issue.
