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 Merge three DNS Servers into one
@joeqwerty - What? Just add the standard secondary DNS server on the "Name Servers" tab, then on the "Zone Transfers" tab check to "Allow Zone Transfers" and move the radio button to "Only the servers listed on the Name Servers tab". You can definitely zone transfer to standard secondary DNS servers from AD-integrated zones. I'm doing this in production in at least 2 Customer sites to allow for cross-forest name resolution from an in-forest DNS server.

@MikeyB - It is based on your regional settings. I wish it just took ISO-standard time... Grrr...

comment On Windows Server 2008 R2, how do I find out the connection mode of the terminal server gateway?
@leeand00 - You don't. You decide what to choose based on what you've forwarded to the gateway from the Internet and whether or not you've deployed an SSL certificate.

comment Authentication via RADIUS : MSCHAPv2 Error 691
The statement about a password "in the config" confuses me. The configuration will contain the RADIUS secret, but the password we're talking about would be the password supplied by a user attempting to authenticate to the SBC device.

comment Authentication via RADIUS : MSCHAPv2 Error 691
Can you set the Acme device to run PAP? (It would appear that the "authentication-methods" command under "security/authentication/radius-servers" will let you do that.) That'll put the password into an encoded plaintext on the wire, where you can at least see if the Acme is doing something dumb to the password (munging it up somehow).

comment Wifi Speed for WRT54G Wireless Router
You can get 10Mbps through the wireless interface of a WRT54G? Are flames coming out of it? These things never go that fast!

comment Consistently slow domain logins / folder redirection
Folder Redirection is adding 30 - 90 seconds to every logon, or just the initial logon where the policy applies for the first time? You're not trashing the user's profile or using a mandatory profile, are you? The Folder Redirection client-side extension (CSE) annotates the policy information in the user's registry and, after the first time it runs, as long as there isn't a change to the GPO it should process much faster. If the user's registry isn't persistent, though, it will be slow to process every time.

I'm impressed w/ your troubleshooting so far and in your description of the issue and the environment. I don't know that I can get you an answer, but I wanted you to know that you're definitely going about things in the right way. Bravo!

What does the Outlook "Connection Status" dialog look like when it's failing? The Autodiscover log would be nice to see, too.

What's in your "Setupact.log" file on a failed machine? That's going to give you more detail about what's failing.
