I'm just a young blood trying to make it in this industry. Currently working as a SysAdmin in a non-profit organization.

comment Windows XP client wont authenticate to Windows Server 2003
Create a zone on the Windows DC for the shares and create new A records that correspond to the servers that the shares are hosted on. That should resolve your problem.

We need more information about your infrastructure. What OS / web server are you running? If you're running apache, what does the document root portion of your config look like?

So disable TLS, Basic Auth, Exchange Server Auth, Intregrate Windows Auth?

@diegows perhaps you'd care to share what you think he needs then rather than just stating what they "don't" need.

comment Best practice on how to update & reboot a live server
In addition, I would give yourself a pretty big window to install these updates, as 2 years worth of updates will surely take quite a while and quite a few reboots.

I would highly recommend implementing a regular patch schedule, especially for mission critical machines.

Why not use TSGateway? That should get you through your proxy as it uses TCP 443

Ah, my apologies. The echo value was 0.

comment Issue warnings with text output of check_snmp in Nagios
Putting the $? after the check_snmp command simply gives me a No OIDs Specified error.

I could certainly do that, however I'm kind of hoping that someone knows of a way to evaluate strings rather than numbers with check_snmp :)

comment Providing Read-only permissions to mailbox in Exchange 2010
Ah did not realize that full access was a requirement for OWA. I would actually prefer it be visible from Outlook rather than OWA, however I was using OWA in case the was a lag in permissions propagation.

comment Reconnect Windows Network Drive after network connection has been established
I assume the user is on a domain because you're using GPO - that said, if you use a logon script you don't need to store credentials within the script

comment How to perform Hardware disaster recovery with backup server
Good point @TomTom - What i'm discussing does not encompass a full disaster recovery plan, but rather local, non-storage related, hardware failure. Any backup plan should also include backups of server, with at least one copy of such data being remote at all times.

Perhaps Veeam would be the best source of information for cmdlets relating to their software.

comment windows xp - how to add a ipp printer by batch/vbs
While I did not down vote you, I suspect it's because this information can be obtained easily with a google search. When asking questions we expect that you've at least done some research into your problem instead of simply asking how to do it. We'll help you resolve problems, but won't do your research for you.

comment How can i find out what crashed my Windows Server 2008 R2 box?
dumb question, but I've no experience with memory dumps - can these be done after the incident or would they need to be done "during" the incident?

The only thing that is not "informational" is an error insufficient video RAM
