comment Multiple Active Nodes with SQL Server 2008 R2
Because they weren't tags in the usual sense, you had sql and server as tags. They're too general purpose.

comment ps aux as non-root doesn't show all processes
I'm confused about your link, if you read the comments it's not a problem in Ubuntu but a problem in OpenSSH - bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=926

Thank you for the answer though.

comment Does index fill factor become meaningless on large tables?
Yeah I'm aware that reindexing is overkill. We used sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats to see what the fragmentation was like after 24 hours and it was negligible except for highly trafficked tables (like a session table that essentially gets recreated every few hours).

comment Is there a way to host email with snow leopard server on site?
You're assuming that their clients are Snow Leopard and later. And also, aside from the Mail App, I have found hosted Exchange doesn't work well with Snow Leopard and Address Book/Calendar, despite ActiveSync being a "standard". If you're on a Windows stack I think hosted Exchange is fantastic. I use SherWeb and only had 1 small issue with them (it was a billing issue, and it was a gray area as to whether it was me or them at fault).

Not even hosted Exchange, a hosted SMTP/POP or IMAP mailbox would be good enough.

Second, you're assuming their ISP allows relaying for arbitrary domains, this is 50/50 at best. Most home ISPs will limit mail sending only from their domain, they don't become open relays with authentication.

First, you are wrong. Secondary MX records work that way, but the ISPs mail server will probably discard the email because it's authoritative for the domain, but won't forward to the primary MX record (why? The mail has already been delivered to the mail server you specified). You need something like MXSave which is designed for this.

comment Error creating ODBC connection to SQL Server 2008 Express
2008 is not different, you have a named instance running instead of a default instance.

comment Dual Monitor support rdp 7 to win 7 on esxi
I stand corrected, as per my own post at serverfault.com/questions/124675/windows-7-multi-monitor-rdc/… there is a group policy setting that should enable it for the Windows 7 machine.

comment how to configure ms sql server 2005
The server will be created when SQL Server is installed. As Andrei Drynov said, it comes with Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. If not installed, you can download and install it from microsoft.com/downloads/… There is a good writeup on how to install it here: articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6102265.html You will also need to install the management studio.

comment Outlook Anywhere Credentials on SBS08
The question isn't why this happens, it's "Is there a way to configure the server or clients so that the user credentials are somehow cached/remembered?". I don't see where you answered that question.

comment Windows 98 clients locking up during files ops with Server 2003
"we're waiting for legacy software to be rewritten and this critical software only runs on Win98 due to use of hardware interrupts" -> isn't this a case for virtualisation?
