comment Using .local for internal websites
We have (e.g.) server.ourcompany.com and otherserver.ourcompany.local; not much chance of a collision unless company B is also called "ourcompany". We should probably use (e.g.) otherserver.corp.ourcompany.com, but the decision was made a while back.

comment Virtual Hosts not accessible from another computer on the same network
To add to that: I have a router that forwards port 80 to my public web server; I publish the external IP address of the router in my external DNS. My router can't handle internal traffic attempting to access the external address (it doesn't port forward correctly). So I had to set up internal DNS to mirror (but lie about) the external DNS.

comment Backing up Linux server to Windows server?
Windows Server Backup on Hyper-V doesn't (stupidly) provide for single-file backup. So it'll be difficult to just backup the VHD for the Ubuntu guest.

Looked like it was Live Messenger; I just downloaded and installed the SP directly. That worked fine (on the second attempt).

comment Safely deploying/hosting a virtualized domain containing a DHCP server
We do something similar: the (Microsoft) DHCP server has a configured scope; there's an exclusion that covers the entire scope; then we have reservations so that specific MAC addresses get specific IP addresses.

comment Is Hyper-V Server 2008 working on Intel's Atom platform
The Atom N270 (in my Samsung NC10) definitely doesn't support VT -- based on attempting to use XP Mode in Windows 7.

comment Mail server for windows server
But bear in mind that the POP3 component has been dropped from Windows 2008, which might be important if you plan on using it and then upgrading in future...
