comment Why is it so important to backup your transaction log?
@TomTom: Sorry, I'm very new to Stack Exchange. I clearly misunderstood what "Enterprise storage, backup, and disaster recovery" covers. Thanks for showing me the way.

@frupfrup: ArcServe has an option to truncate SQL Server transaction logs, which we have enabled. Thanks though :)

comment Why is it so important to backup your transaction log?
@frupfrup: We're using ArcServe UDP, which uses VSS where applicable. We're performing incremental backups of the whole VM with all data in all volumes.

comment Why is it so important to backup your transaction log?
That's very helpful thanks. But given that I have an hourly backup of the whole server, I also have the transaction log and can restore the database to any point in time within that hour, right? The performed backups are incremental, so they should take excessively longer than if I was to only backup the log, I assume.

@RyanRies Would you be able to name a more preferable way to monitor the systems?

comment Why are only 16 GB of memory usable on our server?
Right, he could have. He just would have needed a PDF document full of screenshots for every single step of the way to perform it, just like he had for the firmware upgrade. But whatever

As I explained already, I wasn't on site, otherwise I would have.

While it sounded promising, no feature like that seems to be available in the boards BIOS.

I'm actually not on site, but I will do that if necessary. We actually had a set of 4x8GB Samsung Rx4 RAM before and couldn't POST either. :P

Interesting theory as this server has only 1 CPU installed. Not sure if it's a dual-CPU board though. Still waiting on feedback from the client.

comment Why are only 16 GB of memory usable on our server?
Yeah, it shows 16 as reserved for hardware. The KB article didn't provide anything I deemed helpful. I'm currently trying to gather information for tech support so that they can determine possible hardware issues. Thanks

@Zoredache I'm trying to get in touch with their support, but it's still pretty early in the morning here. Will update when I get more info.

comment Why are only 16 GB of memory usable on our server?
@Zoredache No, I'm not sure. But I basically asked our supplier, who we bought the server from, to send us the max amount of memory that the board could handle and they looked up the 32 GB in their database and sent them over. I'll check back with them though.

comment Hyper-V client regularly disconnects network adapter
@ByronC. MS support instructed me to install KB974909. The installer said it isn't applicable to my system. Apparently a build mismatch. Still working on the issue with them.

comment How do you manage “network locations” through domain group policies?
@BretFisher Turns out it's simply a folder which contents are displayed in that area. You can place anything you want there. Just have a look at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts

comment How do you manage “network locations” through domain group policies?
Sorry for the 1year delay ;) This works great and it also made me realize what the underlying concept of these network locations is. I wasn't aware that it is simply a folder into which you can place arbitrary shortcuts. This is pretty awesome.

comment Hyper-V client regularly disconnects network adapter
@ByronC. I have installed neither as we only have the issue with the 2012R2 VM and I wasn't aware of any heavy traffic on a freshly installed server with no applications.
