comment Possible to migrate RAID 10 system from 2TB Seagate to 2TB WD?
One of the problems using desktop drives is with TLER. By swapping out the drives one at a time, you may end up exacerbating the problem on the remaining three drives. Do make sure you have multiple, current, tested backups. We have had a similar situation and ended up creating a parallel RAID 10 system with the RE4 level drives instead.

comment Prior to risky uninstall, pull one disk of raid 1 as a fallback?
Personal favourite is to use Clonezilla and then disk2vhd. Clonezilla is better for true bare metal, but disk2vhd lets to get easy file access via a .vhd disk image

comment Does MPIO aggregate bandwidth for a single connection?
@ChrisS +1 for avoiding trunking with iSCSI. If you setup MPIO correctly it works great at giving you increased throughput and resiliency.

comment MacOS X 10.6 Portable Home Directory sync fails due to FileSync agent crashing
@pfo Definitely starting to feel that Apple has given up on some core technology... The only fix I found for this was to delete the ~/.FileSync and ~/Library/FileSync folders on the local machine and on the server copy. Then restart the local machine. Nice...

comment Is there a way to speed up MDT 2010 deployment of Windows 7?
@Don: Basically, yes. But you could also install all of your common apps (i.e.: Adobe Reader, 7zip, etc) that need to be on every machine. You also can save time by install all of your service packs before the sysprep step.
