comment Rear Rack Ears for Dell PowerConnect 2824 Switch
@Carlo71 In that case get a patch panel and use short runs between the switch and the patch panel to get the "ports" down lower where they are more accessible. Ghetto but it'll work.

comment Hot spare host vs cold spare host?
+1 just for "REGISTER your servers' support contracts". Even in my limited experience it is more common than you would think that I call support during a SHTF situation at a new site and support has no idea the particular piece of hardware exists and has a contract attached to it.

@ChristopherKarel Maybe I am being a bit to harsh. My signal-to-noise detector is all gummed up with today. Apologizes all around I suppose.

@FrankThornton Oh that is a good question... I didn't see you were using MDT. My guess is yes, it would only effect the Administrator screen, unless you are using copyProfile in your unattend.xml used during the deployment of the image. It looks there are few different ways to do this in MDT.

This is actually a very interesting question and I hate suggesting we send away the few interesting questions ServerFault gets these days but you may also want to look at our sister site: http://security.stackexchange.com/
