comment Why would Windows Server not respond to DHCP DISCOVER?
The new range is 192.168.125.1 - 192.168.125.254. I haven't configured any exclusions yet, I'm just happy that it's working.

Joe, the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, and that's what I thought too. But apparently that isn't what Windows Server 2008 thinks.

comment Why would Windows Server not respond to DHCP DISCOVER?
Speaking of "I'm a moron" ... I had configured the address pool range to be 192.168.125.50 - 192.168.125.100, but the server address was 192.168.125.1. I expanded the address pool and it works now.

I did run Wireshark on the server and the server is definitely receiving 3 "DHCP Request" packets but not "DHCP Discover".

Only events related to DHCP are 10020 (dynamic IPv6, which I've since disabled) and 1044 (DHCP is authorized to start, servicing clients now.)

comment Does transferring a domain transfers DNS records?
It sounds like your current registrar is providing your DNS. You can confirm this by querying the nameserver for your domain: dig mydomain.com ns.

If you've set up the ACL on your shared folder so that "CoOwners" has full control, then you want to make sure that "CoOwners" also appears in whoami.

Russ, can you post screenshots of your share permissions and NTFS permissions on the shared folder? (And regarding the comment by Zoredache, rebooting either the client OR server should do the trick.)

comment Windows 7 no longer genuine after P2V migration
Weird. Maybe try doing a full sysprep and re-entering the key? That should make it happy with the virtual hardware.

Was the Windows license purchased through volume licensing or as OEM?

comment 2 different email hosts for the same domain
Avleen: I recently configured postfix and procmail to forward messages to different mail providers based on email address with great success. (It's also a neat way to get around the issue of slow MX record propagation in DNS when changing mail providers.)

I'm sorry, this is incorrect. Not all operating systems have group policy; maybe you're thinking of ACLs? Top level permissions will apply to the descendents when inheritance is enabled, but they never "override" lower levels.

Are you testing this over the network or from an interactive logon?
