comment Open source DNS server with database backend
I concur. Also, if PowerDNS happened to have a 0-day and gets hacked, running a totally different DNS server would further insulate you from problems (although if a malicious user started changing DNS records, it would just propagate to the secondary DNS still). We keep SQL backups with retention in case of problems.

comment Open source DNS server with database backend
We use PowerDNS as primary and secondary. I suppose if you want further redundancy you could use a different server for secondary and delegate dns down to that server - instead of doing MySQL replication, although it would not update as fast at the primary one would.

comment What is the best way to determine the physical memory in Server 08? I believe my system props is wrong
The OS was showing the wrong amount? Or the BIOS? And, by saying "was" - is it fixed now (after a reboot?)

comment Password expiration policies
This is a research interest of mine. I believe security is as much about user education and psychology as much as technical requirements for security. The most secure installation can be undermined by unsafe practices for the end-user or even administrators!

comment Remote Desktop Protocol as a remote control?
Are you sure the HomeServer has an audio card? I believe you would need one to be able to forward the audio through RDP.
