comment How to exclude indexes from backups in SQL Server 2008
This wouldn't be an issue for full-text indexes, would it? Those tend to be pretty large.

comment How to set up SQL Server to offer high availability during windows updates
@JohnThePro I thought SQL Server Mirroring was one-way. Are you saying that if I had a mirror set up, and the brought down the principal server, upon coming back up it would pick up all the changes that happened on the mirror?

comment Why do big Exchange installations require downtime for maintenance?
@Zoredache Having now used three different Exchange hosters for a significant period of time (over a year), and having all three perform regular scheduled maintenance, I felt safe with the assumption that setting up an Exchange installation with no outages is not practical. I wanted to find out why. @Zippy seems to have the answer.

comment Why do big Exchange installations require downtime for maintenance?
This sounds like the most plausible answer so far, but it is contradicted directly by @Massimo's answer. I am a bit at a loss as to how to decide which one to award the answer. Suggestions?

comment Why do big Exchange installations require downtime for maintenance?
@Jason I am sorry, but your answer is a contradition. First you say that regular downtime is not required and then you say that it is, and noone can avoid it. You cite Google as a counterexample to Exchange, however I have never received a downtime notice for GMail or Google Apps. You also, incorrectly, assume that I have used bottom tier Exchange providers. In fact I have not, and I have been paying far more than $3/mailbox/month.
