comment AD Replication Errors / KCC - Between two Domain Controllers
@Zoredache - I'll start there. I had run this prior, however, it didn't produce the error results that I'm seeing. Both servers are presenting different failures. 1st DC is showing SAM Database unable to lockout on the SystemLog test & KCC errors on the KCCEvent test. The 2nd showing failures on KCC & NCSecDesc.

comment AD Replication Errors / KCC - Between two Domain Controllers
In my head it just kinda sits like that. Not that they are Primary/Backup now. EDIT: Edit my post to properly reflect that.

comment Method to Backup Files/Directories while Maintaining File Structure - Per Year
@TheCleaner - I agree with you. However, I've walked into this mess of an environment recently, and right now the project I have is to migrate from one failing SAN to a new NetApp. In order to reduce load, migration, and overall backups, I would like to do this. I suppose if there are no options, then I will simply just archive the entire structure and then delete files that I do not need locally.

@voretaq7 - That's exactly what I have going on...Invoices on PDFs...

comment Method to Backup Files/Directories while Maintaining File Structure - Per Year
Sure! So this share contains invoices for customers. The customers all have directories, and then their particular files are stored accordingly. Archiving these files off my SAN unloads about...500GB / 10Mil files. These are usually invoices that accounting would reference if they were required by a government audit. Any audit would ask for a particular set of years to retrieve. Was this helpful?

comment Method to Backup Files/Directories while Maintaining File Structure - Per Year
I don't have any budget to change methodologies or acquire anything at this time. I suppose the short-hand explanation is that this company has files from when about 15 years ago, of which they only actually access the last two years of data. If we were audited, then I would pull whatever data is required. The reason that it would be easier to section off each year is because that is how the data would be referenced. "Hey I need files from 2005 for XYZ client." Also, this is a one time shot. Once I've moved the files off my SAN, I will only ever have to get them for audit.

Yes, move. I don't need users to have files from the dawn of time.

I use Backup Exec now, however I clearly missed this part...

I'll be looking at Robocopy in the meantime, but I'm not clear as to whether it will accomplish exactly what I require.

Would it be best to try and automatically recycle the app based on Virtual or Physical memory?

Very interesting @TristanK! When I recycle my app now, it does lose sessions, etc., unfortunately. Also, I think in further reading, I don't believe VBScript responds to memory management within the App Pool. At least that's what I'm getting, but I've been known to be wrong! :)
