comment Most users can access my site but many others cant
Do you have a specific example of a user that cannot reach your site? Have any changes been made in the past week? Are the users clicking on a known good link or attempting to enter your domain name, which has a high probability of user error? If the latter, have they sent you browser screenshots? DNS results appear to be consistent, so that is unlikely to be your problem unless the IP address has changed recently and some users have stale results cached.

comment Distinguishing spam from google servers
Be sure to end your SPF record with "-all" instead of "~all" unless you have a really good reason to expect potentially valid mail to come from unlisted servers.

comment Distinguishing spam from google servers
Yes. If there's no SPF record including "_spf.google.com", then it's not a properly configured Google Apps domain. Just implement SPF lookups and you'll be fine.

comment Distinguishing spam from google servers
If you provide a bit of information about your mail server and your existing "anti-spam setup," perhaps we can provide more specific guidance as to how you can implement a solution.

comment Splitting Ethernet cable
Item 1: Whatever you've been reading, it's not helping. Read something else instead. Item 2: Yes, that's a switch, and its capacity is likely to be adequate for your purposes, though it is quite a lot cheaper than what we would specify professionally. As @EEAA mentioned, faster/better switches are available.

comment DHCP Server Not Offering to PXE Client
So, troubleshoot. You need to figure out where it's breaking down. Use Wireshark or tcpdump to look for DHCP broadcast traffic on the physical network. If it's there, why isn't it showing up in the server log? If it's missing, why isn't it hitting the physical network from the VM? You need to isolate the problem on one host or the other. That tells you which tree to bark up. Before you know it, the tasty squirrel will be yours.

comment DHCP Server Not Offering to PXE Client
If it's not bridged, how will it ever see the DHCP server? Fix that first.
