comment 10g network cards running at less than 1 gigabit
What kind of drives/RAID controller are you running. 600Mbps is about all an 11G Dell PERC700 controller can push. Do you see the same issue when you drop the 1G file onto a ramdisk and copy it to a ramdisk?

comment VPN with overlapping subnets?
@dannymcc correct. If the node they are trying to connect to is on the same IP range, then they will never get there.

And 5.0 BSODs on install, so I'm kind of impressed he got it to run at all.

comment BIND slave doesn't sync up with master until it is restarted
odd, the expected behavior is that new records are immediately served from the slaves once they finish processing the zone transfer. Are there any errors in your logs? You are updating the serial on the zone for every update right?

comment Enable SMP on Debian i386?
@TheLibbster no, if it was disabled in BIOS it would be invisible to any OS level tools.

comment How to tune Windows 2008r2 and IIS to maximize single file download speeds?
Have you checked that you don't have some sort of throttling enabled on the IIS server? Something like: blogs.iis.net/rakkimk/archive/2008/04/04/… ... Also I'd double check that there isn't a misconfiguration on the ASA throttling individual streams at 20mbps

comment Getting packets from one port to another on a Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch
@ArvoBowen hooking one switch port to another is a very good way to loop your network. It's not just horrible practice but can actively break things.

comment Getting packets from one port to another on a Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch
1) this is a perfectly valid solution. 2) Have you tried something like : int vlan 112 ; ip address <addr> <subnet> in config mode? being able to assign an IP to a vlan interface for management purposes is a pretty basic setting that is even on el cheapo desktop managed switches these days.

How many of your DC's are Global Catalogs? Do you have All Ports needed for AD open on the firewall between the DC's and the clients (If there is one)?

Can you check the BIOS and make sure someone hasn't turned off the second processor there?
