comment Sharepoint replacement
Well, very few things out there will be a total replacement for Sharepoint as it is a bundle of lots of features. But if you only need a subset of those features, then Sharepoint may prove to be more trouble (and expense) than it is worth, compared to simpler, more focussed, alternatives.

comment Sharepoint replacement
Yeah - good question. Given you have fairly tight specification above, you will probably find something that meets your needs. Sharepoint is a product to meet the needs of many people without being perfect for all of them. Something simpler will most likely be a better fit.

comment vCenter Converter Standalone cannot copy virtual machines from one ESXi server to another
I agree - and I spoke to VMware about it (we have ESX so pay for support) and they recommended using Converter. Are you using the standalone converter (i.e. not one integrated into VMware Infrastructure/vSphere Client)? I think you probably need to dig deeper into the logs - that would be easier with ESX than ESXi, but I am sure it is still possible.

Yeah - we have spreadsheets too. Terrible and leads to mistakes eventually. You need a database with constraints.

comment Windows Network Load Balancing on ESX Cluster with Dell PowerConnect stacks
Still in touch with Dell on this - they've been working out what the issue is. Latest suggestion is to go to the latest firmware (isn't it always). Explanation is that the newest firmware shifts a lot of Layer 2 processing out of software and onto hardware on the PowerConnects. Seems reasonable, but these are our core switches, so not sure when I am going to get a window to do a firmware upgrade. If only we were properly redundant like we planned :-)

comment Enforce signature policy in Exchange 2003 using Active Directory fields
I've seen this recommended elsewhere. Most likely will try the Free trial.

Good answer - may well give this a try, although my boss is looking at a product with support. Free sounds good to me though :-) Many thanks.
