Too much work these days. Time to go back to school.

comment Intermittent logon failures or lock out failures when under high impersonation load
Not that I am aware. This appears isolated to our Server<->Isilon CIFS traffic. It also is isolated to instances where two CreateFile requests go in-flight at the same time on two different threads. We're working with the vendor at this point, but it is not an easy problem.

During these failures I see no relevant entries in the netlogon log file.

comment Windows applications do not see files on CIFS share mapped without FQDN
We have that already (3 choices in the search list, starting with the right one), oddly enough it appears to make no difference on the network side (Ethereal traces). But it obviously makes a difference somewhere! (and at some point even the FQDN connection experiences delays, I assume after some keep-alive timeout)

We've looked at the possibility that the DC rebooted, however, I doubt our DC's are being rebooted every hour or two.

comment Stop WSUS from rebooting a server
As a follow-up, turning off the service was detected, it was restarted and the servers were patched and rebooted as you described. Good times.

This is WSUS controlled rather than vanilla Windows Update.

Well, at any Fortune N company (N < 100), IT is generally setup as a series of holes for square pegs. Anybody not a square peg gets beaten through the hole.

comment Stop WSUS from rebooting a server
There is an exceptions policy, we were unaware the deadline was Wednesday. This will not be the first, second, nor third time production will be impacted. We've gone nuclear on any windows service related to patching in a last ditch effort to kill that.

I have no control over WSUS/containers/etc. I am merely a local admin on those machines.

We'd considered that, but we uh, would have to stay logged into 21 servers and be active :)

comment Sane patch schedule for Windows 2003 cluster
Bruce Leigh: We don't control Config Mgr nor the deployment of updates. Granted, if Config Mgr was scriptable we could potentially advertise our ability to be patched.

comment Sane patch schedule for Windows 2003 cluster
The issue with the domain is users being able to run their jobs as their own username. It would also mean access to the SAN would be impaired. We've attempted to go the "our own WSUS" route, but they have a requirement that we can't be more than 5 patches behind...

Marked as the answer as the first point was the crux of my question.

1. These jobs can't really be "failed over". There are ~100 different executables used and I reckon none of them are safe to be failed over. 2. Oh I agree we have a communication problem, welcome to a Fortune 10 company.
