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.

comment Add Mac (OS X) to Active Directory DNS name resolution
@RobertAltman: Yes the Mac's will augment their local accounts with the AD accounts. So you can login with either type of account. If you have logged once on that laptop and then take it offsite, the login credentials will be caches, much like on Windows laptops. Existing user account will continue to exist; however, you could replace those accounts with AD accounts and user your AD roaming profile accounts instead and then manually copy over the account data.

comment Cannot connect to Active Directory Domain Controller
Just my thinking, but try to avoid use a .local domain. Instead use a subdomain of one that you own. Say corp.mydomain.com. It avoids future headaches and troubleshooting issues.

comment How to choose a network switch vendor?
+1 on HP, but be careful in their marketting spin. They have labelled their 3Com and Huawei switches as ProCurves as well. Almost as bad as Cisco relabelling Linksys products...

comment iSCSI Transfer Rate Using Standard Gigabit Networking
Instead of LACP, consider using MPIO with iSCSI as LACP may have scaling issues with 1 host and 1 SAN, depending on the configuration
