comment Cisco Port Buffer Memory
and just for good measure, I've seen 3750s fall on their face time and again in regards to iSCSI, the new 3800s are supposed to shore that up a bit. I'm less familiar with Nexus for this purpose.

comment Cisco Port Buffer Memory
Be aware the 6200 series does not have the larger port buffers that the 5500 has. they used to recommend the old 5000s but the 5500s are a pretty big step up.

comment Cisco Port Buffer Memory
Check out the Dell 5500 powerconnects for iSCSI. They have big buffers, and automatically QoS properly as Jason below has suggested and they have built-in stacking over HDMI that has enough bandwidth to suit most people's needs. On a budget, they're not badly priced either, but I'd ONLY use them as a storage fabric if I could help it.

I'll echo Chopper... take off and nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

comment Need to prevent SBS 2003 disabling its DHCP server if it sees another DHCP server on network
What kind of switch are you using? You can use DHCP snooping to squash DHCP services from non-authorized sources.

comment How can I specify nameserver's port number in osx?
Sounds like OSX doesn't user /etc/resolve.conf, start looking elsewhere.

comment LACP Aggregation between Cisco C3750X and HP JD990A
Interesting... mode ON on a Cisco switch is PaGP only. Which switch did you put that command into?

comment Is it worth it to do revision control/puppet/etc. on a single-server-setup?
Git is just version control, you need a copy of this data somewhere else other than this server. You could probably keep that simple too, and RSYNC it off somewhere, anywhere.

comment Is it worth it to do revision control/puppet/etc. on a single-server-setup?
Sounds like a lot of effort with very little return. Solid backups and config file version control are probably all you need.

They are configured to the same port group on the same vSwitch, right?
