comment How to minimize bandwidth in frequent postgres backup scenario?
Does postgres not support differential or log based backups? I use sql server but we do backups every 15 minutes on a terabyte database with active changes and a backup there is regularly just 200-500mb. We make a full backup daily, and log backups in between.

comment Running Visual Studio and IIS without Administrator rights on Windows
And make it slow. It is also idiotic given that he says it is on windows 8.1 whih comes with Hyper-V. Ups. Why use VirtualBox instead of the same thing provided by the OS? Fanboy? Clueless?

Why not block dhcp answers on the switch for anything except your allowed server port ;)

comment Windows Server 2012 AVMA stops working after OS customisation
I really would take this up with PSS. Seriously. Because if that is a bug (and it looks like) then there I could demand a hotfix ;)

comment Windows Server 2012 AVMA stops working after OS customisation
Do you have access to MS? THis is one thing I would take up with their PSS - Professional Support Services. Because it seriously smells like a bug (so the PSS ticket will be free) and MS seems to be in the need of fixing this (which we can not do here).

comment Network file server crash
No. See, this is a site for professional admins. We explicitly od not care about greenhorns and greenhorn level questions as per site rules. Plus, making backups regularly is STANDARD in IT, so you already violate basic operational standards. Go and ask Synology how to deal with this sietuation because seriously, their support is where you get support for a specific question like that.

comment Network file server crash
Maybe you should learn how Raid technologies work before playing wih them? Stuff like "pulling random discs is idiotic". And you make backups of the volumes before playing around, daily, on separate systems.

G, learn about how IP works before making crap assumptions then building a house of delusions on top of them.

If that was set up many years ago, check whether the hardware is good enough. Seriously. Companies grow - sometimes you just need to throw some hardware at it. Alternatively you could stretch out the sunday window. Maybe reorganize takes more than 1 hour now?

comment Can a RAID5 be corrupted if Drive 0 has been failed and how could this be fixed?
And that is both sides. Seen that on SAS discs / Velociraptors had fora long time defective firmware that would make them unresponsive for some time everz 49 dazs uptime. Simple solution - reset servers monthly. Forget that and booom.

Interesting. My approach is "replace disc, then test it on another setup because I do not trust it right now until I have fully tested it".

comment SQL Server 2005 global slowdown
On top, may I suggest dumping the ridiculously slow HD and put in an SSD? It can be argues for most things, but the SERIOUS amount of IOPS that an SSD has is terrific for tempdb.
