You could always start trying "000...0001", "000...0002", and so forth. Unless, that is, you need it within the next hundred years... :P

comment Any way to access an IP-restricted server remotely (if I have access to an allowed machine)?
And again, Sorry, RDP isn't what I'd call a poor protocol. The only case where it doesn't shine is over slow WAN connections. (Such as small businesses who run off of the cheap DSL or Cable plans...) Try turning off the RDP options, setting the manual screen resolution (instead of fullscreen), and turn the color-depth down to 16-bit or lower.

In my day we sent "packets". That is, small packages of punch cards! Through the mail! </snark>

comment Can I recover a RAID 5 array if two drives have failed?
If this is (somehow) likely to occur again in the future, you may consider RAID6. Same idea as RAID5 but with two Parity disks, so the array can survive any two disks failing.

Ah, I'd assumed that you'd installed the standard desktop edition... Yes, that's an important package if you want a desktop!

Thanks for the input! That's a great (well, it sucks, especially for you having to deal with it) gotcha to know ahead of time! +1 to you.

comment PsExec and Remote Environment Variables, Logging, Etc
Yea, completely wrong tool for the job. You want a scripted solution from VBScript or Powershell (or Perl, or Python, or JScript, or.....), basically anything that can interface with LDAP/AD and (maybe) WMI. Go hit up the Microsoft Technet Script Center.

comment Mass Active Directory changes and monitoring
You could also make the stance of incremental improvements. By which, I mean that you could do the CLI version first, letting the people who aren't scared of something new try it (and maybe encourage / evangelize it), and if there's still demand, reuse your known-working code to do a front-end.
