I run a small IT company - TiGra Networks - that provides solutions built on the Microsoft stack and supports small businesses from 3 to 75 computers. We have another venture called TiGra Astronomy that produces .NET software for astronomers but it is currently more a labour of love than a going concern. I also have interests in VoIP/digital telephony and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

I was awarded Microsoft MVP ('Most Valuable Professional') for Windows Small Business Server in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

I prefer to develop in C# and try to be an early adopter of the latest tools.

comment How do I grant start/stop/restart permissions on a service to an arbitrary user or group on a non-domain-member server?
I know this is a very old question, but did you consider using the 'recovery' options in the Windows service manager?

comment Hyper-V Server sends constant stream of DHCP requests causing DoS
I have noticed that both the Virtual NIC and the Virtual Switch adapters have IPv4 and DHCP enabled and that the virtual NIC has the same MAC address as the physical NIC. Is that the normal configuration? Would that be a possible source of the issue? I don't want to go making changes randomly without a clear understanding of what I'm doing, because the server is remote and I have to access it through RDP - so there is a consequence to trashing the network settings.

If it was one of the VMs, wouldn't the physical address in the DHCP broadcast be that of the VM, rather than the host?
