comment Completely disjoint iSCSI networks vs dedicated switches and VLANs
If you're sizing switch capacity for full line speeds, keep in mind the 1Gb ports are 2Gb full duplex. A 24x1Gb port switch will need a 48Gb backplane to be full line speeds.

comment Power reading 2 amps with 13 servers?
Where is this gear located? In the U.S., voltage is delivered at different currents in many commercial/industrial applications than households. Typically 120/240 is found in residential, while 110/208 is delivered to commercial locations. Not that this helps solve your reading trouble, but it may help the accuracy of your calculations moving forward.

comment Can ping by IP, not by domain
Why are you using sudo in the first ping (by IP address), and not in the second (by name)?

comment Reset user's password without root
Using the sudo access method will also create a nice audit trail for review if necessary. You'll be able to see who's doing what for which users.

comment How many concurrent calls can a 0.9Mbit connection handle with G711a?
G.726 is a good intermediary between G.729 and G.711. If your equipment allows, you can also modify the sampling rate, which can tweak your bandwidth utilization for better efficiency. Sending fewer packets per second puts more payload in each one. This reduces the overhead costs of the call, but will make loss pronounced as more of the sound is in each packet.

comment Is it possible to disable ARP in Windows 7
I think if you clarified this to state you're looking to stop Gratuitous ARP packets, it may help find an answer. That is what ArpRetryCount pertains to.

comment Setup of HP ProCurve 2810-24G for iSCSI?
The reasoning for using tagged ports is if you need to carry more than one VLAN down it. Tagging the VLANs gives you the ability to distinguish between them. You also don't need to use LACP to create a link aggregation (trunk for HP, Etherchannel for Cisco) bundle. You can set a static aggregation group and benefit from the switch side balancing and fail over. That said, it's also common to leave the switch side alone and let ESX handle the traffic decision making.
