Should I expect any difficulties with re-activating Windows Server 2003 on different hardware?

comment Best method to protect software PBX system from disaster
I've considered trying to replicate the system in a virtual machine, but I don't think it's a viable option since the software needs access to the T1 and POTS cards for controlling the PBX. I'll look at SSR, my experience has been with Norton Ghost which hasn't worked in the past.

comment zsh autocompletes folders that don't exist
never used zsh, but I know bash supports completing hostnames from /etc/hosts in addition to folders that exists. Is there a proxy in your hosts file?

comment Multiple Enterprise-level Western Digital hard drives failing
I considered that, but I don't think there's an unusual level of vibrations in the environment. The server has spent most of it's life with only a layer of carpet between it and cement. The last six month, though, it's been on a shelf sitting on a wooden floor raise above the ground. The one noisy failed drive was vibrating just a bit, but a good RE3 drive was sitting in-between the two recently failed drives.

comment Can't access a user profile as administrator?
@Sonny I tend to be very persistent about this as well though I don't always get to the bottom. Next thing to test is filesystem corruption. Have you tried running scan disk?

Well, I'd be downloading an Ubuntu/Knoppix LiveCD at this point. Works great at getting around those pesky permissions.

Did you verify Administrator is in the local Administrators group? And take a look at the above article I mentioned?
