comment Install Exchange Server on a Workgroup Server
Define workkgroup server. A workgroup server would be one not in the domain, which does not work because Exchange requires AD.

comment Guide to buying a server?
Hint. MAke sure your company has someone remotely qualified to be an admin. This generally includes having the experience to come up with proposals for realistic hardware.

comment Some pings to Active Directory server fail
No, we would not mind. To fix the problem hire an administrator with a clue what he is doing.

comment Terminal Server (Windows 2008 R2) Performance Tuning for Multimedia
Upgrade to 2012 R2 - tons was changed in remote desktop (also on protocol level) to facilitate scenarios like this.

comment Assigning virtual processors to a VM
It mostly is idiocy or a side effect (for example: memory or disc IO are so limited that making more virtual cores simply makes no sense - CPU, for most servers, is NOT the limiting factor.

comment Add shared contacts to Outlook 2007 address book
Just as note - the 2010 "do not use public folders" mantra was pretty much immediately thrown out in 2013, which redid and reintroduced public folders. While wondering why anyone would now update to 2010 (instead of 2013) - I would not bother about "do not use public folders" as long term issue.

comment Is there a way to create an EFI partition smaller than 1MB or am I reading partition sizes wrong because the disk has been converted to Dynamic
THe problem is trying to create a 992kb partition. Why the heck do you want this? In times where disc sizes are that hugh, this is close to a feature noone needs.

comment Are department-wide shares a bad idea?
And it really depends what you do. SQL Server - no need for AV because data is not viruses and noone except the admin for maintenance will anyway access it. File server: MUST HAVE.

comment I was trying to restore a copy of Exchange database from tapes
And this is why this is off topic. Definitely not professional system administration. 2003 - I seriosuly do not like thinking back onto the exchange version there.

comment What is the recommended GlusterFS configuration for a growing website?
Yeah. Nothing in your description says you need a distributed file system. They come with a cost and should normally be avoided.

comment How to upgrade a MSSQL Server?
Lets be realistic. If you run a system falling behind then you do big leaps. I would definitely go to 2014 right now - it is there, it is stable and it means for some years I have no reason to upgrade again. 2008 R2 is - the next upgrade happening when? It can not be in support that much longer.

comment How to upgrade a MSSQL Server?
So, why would anyone get a 2008 r2 when in reality the current version is 2014?

comment How to upgrade a MSSQL Server?
Why would you go to a RC2? 2008 is old - and RC2 is a RELEASE CANDIDATE. It is not a released version. This makes little to no sense.

comment Domain time drifting with VM DCs / host domain members
If you followed best practices you ahve configured at least the PDC emulator to get the time from an external source. And that should distribute.

comment Windows Server Failover Clustering with two servers
Sadly it is also wrong as the domain controllers can be virtual.

comment Windows Server Failover Clustering with two servers
That said it is totally valid to have 2 compuoters and run the 2 domain controllers virtual. FULLY supported since - hm - 2012 (or R2). Clusters do not need to find a domain to start and full virtual domain controller setups are supported.
