comment where can you get pricing on NAS such as EqualLogic PS4000X without selling your soul?
Craig is absolutely right. Once you talked to Dell retail, they got the "registration" for the deal and will offer the best price. Sometimes they will flip this to their VARs though. I work for a reseller in the Midwest, you can send me a private message and I will get you in touch with one of our guys. I also know some good people in the Southeast US.

comment Data Center Power Draw Calculation
I can tell you our R710's forced us to upgrade to the larger PSU's when we added a second proc and another 24GB of RAM to make it an ESX host.

Some people put their swap on FusionIO cards, and it's really, freakin, fast. :)

comment Flow Control - Where do you enable it?
You're probably also going to want to enable jumbo frames.

comment Flow Control - Where do you enable it?
Depends on the switch, I know on Juniper switches flow control is a per port option. You MAY need to enable it on the NIC of the host too, but most NICs have it turned on by default.

Verify NIC link speed and duplex on every interface between you and the server, please.

comment Re-writing/re-routing TCP packets for load balancing
I wonder could you add a second NIC to each box and put the default gateway on a different connected network so the return path goes out an entirely different interface?

comment Juniper router dropping pings to external interface
Is the WAN interface set to auto-negotiate? I agree with everyone else, you should look for layer 1/2 problems.

comment DroboPro ISCSI Connection - Connection has limited or no connectivity in Windows 2003
I think Chris is trying to say you're having a very basic networking issue and has nothing to do with "servers" but two peers. You need to set a static IP address on both the Drobo and the second NIC on your host. You need to make sure this does not conflict with your primary NIC's network. So if your primary NIC is 192.168.1.0/24 then you need to adjust the third octet for this dedicated network, say 192.168.2.0/24

comment MAC address for DHCP when using bridge with 2 NICs?
I'd suspect its the first in the order you name them when creating the bridge, or there is a command to designate/override.

Take a long look at Drobo too, kinda pricey, but they future proof nicely.

comment Can't see some hosts on VLAN 1 with 2 /22 and 2 /16 ip blocks on it
And do you HAVE to have layer 2 connectivity across segments? Those are layer 3 switches, I'd route between them.

Does the trunk between switches HAVE to be wireless?
