comment Two wireless access points directly connected to modem possible?
I'm assuming the WAPs aren't capable of WiFi mobility; it's quite rare even today to find that functionality built into WAPs. A typical mobility setup has a separate controller or gateway to coordinate migrating from one AP to another without the normal disconnect/reconnect process.

comment New office cabling: should we use CAT7 or CAT6a?
@Mike Cat5e should do 10Gb at very short distances, just as the original Cat6 should, If you want cables guaranteed to work at distances up to 100m, Cat6A is guaranteed to work. Most people are only concerned with what can be guaranteed to work (with the normal "nothing's screwy" assumptions).

comment Does any SATA drive work in any SATA port?
I wouldn't pay money for anything older than a G6 or maybe a G7 at this point. They're pretty much all the same price as the older servers and the older servers burn more electricity, so you'll probably burn up any savings within the first year.

comment Migrate Windows Server 2008 to a new hard disk 2
@user1914380 The post specifically says that the identifier is ususally not a GUID. Please use the identifier reported by bcdedit and do not substitute. Thank you!

comment How long a latest rack server in data center takes to boot?
5 minutes to get the Hypervisor running sounds about right. Botting the VMs could take much longer.

comment Can a snmpd.conf access control entry contain multiple networks?
Only because you bought it up... The community string in SNMP v1 and v2 isn't secured, the whole protocol isn't secure. So anyone can see anything running across the network. There's no great reason to pick a really secure string. SNMP v3 is a different story completely, with good security, but it also uses usernames and passwords, not community strings.

comment Why datacenter water cooling is not widespread?
@AdrianMaire Water has a specific heat of 4.2; while most oils fall in the 1.5 to 2.0 range. This means oils are less than half as efficient at moving heat as water. The heat exchangers, piping, pumps would all need to be 2-3 times larger. I've never seen any "water cooling" system use oil, except that one guy on YouTube who put his computer in a fish tank filled with mineral oil.

comment How can we allow all users to view full details for meetings in an Exchange 2010 Resource Mailbox's calendar?
@ChrisPowell If you're looking for the ability to edit a room's schedule like people could in Exchange 2003, then no, that functionality no longer exists in 2007+. If you gave that secretary Full Access to the mailbox she could move meeting, but that moved meeting wouldn't be moved on the participants calendar, only on the room's calendar. Either the secretary needs to organize the meeting in the first place (so the "original organizer" can move the meeting) or you'd need 3rd party Meeting Organization software that provides this functionality.
