Windows / Linux / Unix sysadmin since '96. Cut my teeth on Xenix (ick!) and have been a Linux user since '93 (yay-- Slackware!). Worked w/ more Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 than I care to recall. Today MSFT stuff mainly pays my bills but I try to keep at least passingly familiar with Linux.

I write some code too, but my main gig is sysadmin and IT project work.

Server Fault bragging:

  • First user to hit the rep cap from their laboring wife's hospital room
  • First non-beta Server Fault user over the 10K reputation mark and the second user to do it, beta nonwithstanding. Also the first user over the 20K, 30K, 40K, 50K, 60K, 70K, 80K, 90K, and 100K marks... (yeah-- I guess I'm counting... >smile<)
  • First user to be awarded a tag badge (for "windows")
  • First user awarded the gold "windows" tag badge
  • First user awarded the "Epic" badge (hitting the rep cap 50 days)

If you're in deep trouble and need bailed out now give me a call and we can work something out.

Further shameless plugging

comment Point of Shared Secrets on RADIUS Servers over a Cisco Switch
@ArranCudbard-Bell - True enough. This answer wasn't mean to be an all-encompassing description of RADIUS. This depends on the RADIUS server implementation. The Microsoft IAS RADIUS implementation can be configured to disregard Access-Request messages with bad shared secrets. (That is, if you configure the server to require that the client include the signature attribute.)

I think you'd do well to have a look at this, for starters: serverfault.com/questions/188350/how-do-vlans-work

comment Outlook fails to connect to a load-balanced Exchange 2013 cluster through Direct Access 2012 R2
I'd capture traffic on both sides of the load-balancer, just to confirm that the requests from the client are getting there. Tracing traffic on the DirectAccess client, using the netsh trace start scenario=directaccess report=yes capture=yes command would probably be helpful to. The articles re: TMG feel like a red-herring to me, because you're doing MAPI over HTTP. My gut says you're going to run into something simple like a name resolving to an external vs. internal address, etc. I'd certainly love to know how this turns out.

comment How can I disable/suppress the warning I get for having SSH enabled on an ESX/ESXi host?
I'm alright with you getting the rep rather than @ewwhite. >smile< (Now, if you're trailing me by less than 10K then I'd have a different opinion... >snicker<)

comment Group policy waited for the network subsystem
I suspect you'll get a lot of good information from sniffing the traffic from one of these problematic clients during boot (through a network tap, a port mirror, or using netsh trace(blogs.msdn.com/b/canberrapfe/archive/2012/03/31/…).

@MichaelHampton - Yep. For a single domain environment you can basically think of it like plain ol' Windows Server.

comment Ethernet to Fiber Converters, reliable? or maybe better solutions
+1 - I've used quite a number of Allied Telesis 10/100/1000 media converters (including both the long-haul and short-haul gigabit varieties) over the last 15 years and had good success with them. I've used them standalone with their wall warts, but their rack mount chassis is nice, too.
