comment How many power circuits do I have in a rack?
Am I the only one frowning at the idea of calling those things "servers"?!?

comment IM across VLANs
Communication across VLANs is not difficult at all, it only requires a router. But if the real problem is "we don't want the two networks to talk at all", then no IM system is going to help you.

comment Pros and cons of virtualization
@RobertGoldwein, no offense intended, of course. But placing all those pieces of software (each of which, regardless of hardware requirements, can be tricky enough to require a full team to look after it) on a single server is just asking for troubles.

"But what if I don't install SQL, Exchange, IIS and TFS on separate servers, but all on one, since all these applications are perfectly capable of living together?" - Good luck with that, really.

comment Windows Route traffic to specific IP through secondary nic
Evan's answer says that he's almost sure a static route is not going to work, and I agree with that; the only way that could work is if the two servers are configured to perform routing between their two NICs (which on Windows systems requires installing RRAS), otherwise they will simply reject any packet which enters an interface but is addressed to another one. Ugly as it may be, the hosts file hack is the only solution here.

comment What's the difference between ip address 0.0.0.0 and 127.0.0.1?
The OS will very likely block you from doing that, as it doesn't just make sense from the networking perspective. Trying to ping 0.0.0.0 on a Windows system results in an error message.

comment Domain Admins inherit send as permission by default
That wouldn't still be enough, Exchange administrators don't automatically have send as/receive as permissions exactly because they should be able to manage the environment but not to snoop on other people's mail. In a standard Exchange setup, nobody has global send as/receive as rights and they must always be explicitly granted to whoever needs them.
