SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)

comment MPLS outage on a 4 member DAG causes Exchange / Outlook to hang
@mfinni - Checked the logs, nothing found... did see local connectivity issues, as mentioned above... perhaps it's a local switch issue

comment What is the correct way to track and monitor Exchange DB replication “pressure” over time?
Yes, it seems that @MDMarras logic would be correct, I have 5 databases / logs on the same lun. Rather than graphing the log files per hour it makes more sense to generally identify the heavy hitters in that DB set in general, and move them. I'll be parsing logs soon. Thanks both!

@TheCleaner The WAN bandwidth constraint is preventing the timely truncation of logs (I think logs are only truncated when a full backup occurs and the data has been replicated to each DAG member). It eventually does catch up, but not often enough for us to get scarily close to filling the drive. I think that by moving active mailboxes to other LUNs, the replication issue will still exist, however the disk space issue will be temporarily relieved.

@MDMarra Our core issue is that Log LUNs are filling up at an abnormally high rate, and so I guess I need to figure out which mailbox-specific metric relates to logs created.

@MDMarra All disks are the same. The problem I'm seeing is that our bandwidth isn't capable of maintaining a realistic RPO due to many logs being created. This results in one particular database lag behind the others. I would rather spread out the load across all databases so that this one DB doesn't stick out during a failover event... and may need to be restored from tape because replication is.. well useless for this DB.

comment Is there anything bad about DKIM-signing mail without the key in DNS?
To pass DKIM you need the public key published in DNS as a TXT record. SPF is a different, orthogonal technology. Maybe you're talking about DMARC which combines the two?

-1 TXT records with SPF info aren't required for DKIM. SPF is a different sender authentication technology.
