comment High CPU Usage by LSASS.exe when installing Exchange Server 2013
How long have you let it run? The AD schema extension does indeed take some time, during which high CPU usage on the Schema Master DC is normal.

comment has my server been hacked w00tw00t.at.ISC.SANS.DFind
If the strange request comes from an internal address and you can track it to an internal computer, feel free to investigate it. But it could be infected by some malware, it's not necessarily a deliberate attack by a malicious user.

comment Microsoft Exchange 2013 is not receiving internet email
@DerronR, your firewall should forward TCP port 25 to your Exchange server, not answer it on its own.

Try to telnet to 173.10.197.225 on port 25. There's something anwering there, and it says 220 sjl0vm-cass01.colo.sonicwall.com ESMTP SonicWALL (8.0.1.2353). This is not an Exchange server.

@DerronR, the situation is exactly the same as before: if I try to telnet to mail.clearspaninc.com (which resolves to 173.10.197.225), the server that answers there is not your Exchange server. The problem is either in your public DNS or in your firewall. Your public MX record is not pointing to your Exchange server. How many times do I need to repeat this?!?

The DNS settings for Exchange have nothing at all to do with how it receives messages; they are only used when sending messages.

You need to call the provider where you registered your domain (that should be directnic.com), and tell them that you need to modify the MX record to point to your Exchange server.

You're looking at the wrong place again. In the EAC you are configuring the DNS servers that Exchange uses to find the destination domains when sending messages. This has nothing at all to do with how it receives messages.

comment hosts file ignored, how to troubleshoot?
Good post, but with a couple errors. 1) "Automatically detect settings" in IE can lead you to (even unnknowingly) use a proxy, if your network does actually provide proxy autoconfiguration. 2) Changing your DNS servers in the network settings hasn't anything to do with how/when/if the hosts file is used, and changing it to 127.0.0.1 is effectively an error, unless you're actually running a DNS server on your computer.

Built in, since Windows 2000.

IPSec, too. But sadly, almost no one uses it for what it was actually created for...
