comment How do you search for backdoors from the previous IT person?
@Jason - I was wondering why there was all of a sudden a huge jump in views. Nice to see the SOFU architecture can handle being slashdotted.

@Jason - you had me excited beause the IPC$ share was disabled - however I put it back using a KB artical and it didn't fix anything :(

1) Network is correct, 2) 3) Tried disabling firewall, no luck, service is started, 4) Resolution (via DNS) is fine, 5) They can ping and browse shares, but not connect to shares

comment Hardware vs Software load balancers: Just a cost issue?
Found it - webcache.googleusercontent.com/… (thanks Google Cache) - key line being 105931 sessions per second and about 17% CPU usage - that's pretty insane for a single basic Xeon processor

@Timmy - I read a case study on the haproxy website (Their website is, unfortunately, offline) where they saturated a 10Gbps link to a HAProxy box and it scaled nicely, and I'm fairly sure that would be more than 10k concurrent requests.

The server is currently totally stuffed (see comment on Jason's answer) - I'll check these things after I've done a restore on it tonight.

P.S. Just in case you're worried I'm totally not blaming you for that ;) I think it's a sign that there's something larger wrong with the server.

comment SBS 2008 can browse shares, but not connect to any
Well, the BPA changes totally screwed the server. I installed SP2 as per the instructions and when it rebooted, NetLogon couldn't start, the permissions were stuffed, it wouldn't authenticate against the domain, and when I eventually got into it the OS reported as Server 2008 FE. I'm going on-site this evening to restore it from a backup, then I will try the other suggestions in the answers (can't restore it remotely as the Windows Backup application is stuffed too).

Yeah, it's the only DC as per SBS limitations, and the clock is in sync. See my comment on Jason's answer - I'll double check the clock thing once I've run a restore.

comment Is this a reasonable architecture for a newspaper site?
You took the words right outta my mouth. Why 2 load balancers? Never use Atom CPUs in a server. Why use outdated desktop CPUs in a server application? 850 req/sec could be handled by a virtually anything, so what's wrong with the current code?
