Hello, my name is Chris. I'd love to introduce myself, but how do you summarize a life in a few sentences? I could tell you about the two beautiful women in my life, my wife and daughter; or that I work as a systems administrator; that I help my friends and family at every opportunity; or about the work I've done in my community. Perhaps it's best to leave this short, and say I'm someone who's glad to meeting you and hope I can help with whatever problems.

I'm a Windows administrator by day; but my first passion is FreeBSD and Open Source Software. I put my money where my mouth is on a quarterly basis. I'm inspired everyday by my peers, their abilities, drive, and passion for competent applications of technology and supporting operationals. As a Myers-Briggs INTJ and DISC C/D I value Quality highly and at times can be a purist. Incomplete jobs are loans with high interest (see Technical Debt).

comment Failing to compile audio/teamspeak3-server with FreeBSD poudriere system
Is that where Poudiere is keeping it's copy of the ports tree? It doesn't like to share by default.

This will not work as it's testing if BATCH is defined at all, not it's value.

comment Possible to emulate an IGMP querier in software?
Eugene, You seem to really struggle to type sentences that say what you mean, go back and read what you've left, it's full of sentences that don't make sense. Your Answer doesn't actually answer your Question as it's written. Server Fault is for Professional Administrators (et al) only, not programmers (if you wanted to know how to program a IGMP Querier then you should have said so and this would have been migrated immediately). Similarly if you just wanted to know if Snooping could be fooled by any random Querier then you should have said that. You seriously need to work on your communication skills

Sounds like Windows might be corrupted. Have you run sfc /scannow yet?

comment Possible to emulate an IGMP querier in software?
Ok, but your question is about your L3 Switch Routing multicast traffic. None of this has anything to do with that. Without IGMP the switch should just fall back to broadcasting the multicast traffic and letting the clients sort out where it's supposed to go. This is obviously less than ideal, but should work fine unless you've got bandwidth problems. If you don't have bandwidth problems then I don't see how this is even a "real" problem in the first place. What am I missing here?

I'm aware of the terms. But I fail to see how you're going to get multicast working on a network where the router does not support IGMP.

comment Program Files(x86) not being interpretted right on Win7x64 when not running as local admin
@dartonw The value of that variable changes depending on if the program is running in native 64-bit mode, or in WoW 32-bit mode. This program is probably not checking that variable correctly and has it hardcoded somewhere in the program (likely in a place of no significance, and simply doesn't care if the folder doesn't exist, but throws red flags if it can't access the non-existent folder)

comment Is there a specific name for the “.\” (dot-slash) shorthand used to log onto a Windows machine?
in the URI scheme ./ would be localhost <- In a URI "." would be a the end of a DNS entry, so the root zone. Not localhost.

comment Deploying iSCSI Diskless Clients via WDS
I think I get the gist of your Answer, but it doesn't seem specific enough to be of any help, and I'm not sure if it actually answers the Question...

comment Deploying iSCSI Diskless Clients via WDS
Could you be more specific about what you're trying to do? I get that your booting over iSCSI using iPXE, but why are you involving .wim files? Are you trying to boot from an image file on an iSCSI store? Or are you trying to boot a RAM Disk loaded from an Image (what WinPE does)? Or something else?

comment How to zero fill a virtual disk's free space on windows for better compression?
@romkyns It doesn't matter anymore as all modern versions of Windows and Hyper-V support trim (as of Win7 and Hyper-V 2012), there's no need to zero before compacting. The PreCompact utility only zeroed parts of the disk with deleted files, the part that hadn't ever been used was left untouched. Using something like sdelete would fill the dynamic disk to static size, which could then be compacted back down to only the size actually used.
