I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

comment Joining multiple Linksys SRW208P
@Newbie, 1) You can link as many of them as you like, 2) If you have 8+2, then do the uplink using the gigabit ports, as then you won't run into any bandwidth bottlenecks (8x100Mb < 1x1Gb), and then you also get 16 ports. Bonus.

comment Joining multiple Linksys SRW208P
If you really want 16 ports, then you'll have to find two mini-gbics (often fibre ones but you can also get "normal" ones) and use that to do the uplink instead. Something like this.

comment Windows XP client unable to query DNS, but nslookup works fine
@Kortina, this should really be a question on its own, but, having multiple DNS servers listed is really a bad idea if they're completely independant. The system is designed for redundancy. if you need this, you should point your Windows DNS to use your router as a forwarder, or even better, just use Root Hints and ignore your router/ISP DNS alltogether.

comment Using a single-level domain for Active Directory
Newer Microsoft software does not support single-label domains, such as Exchange 2010 and Sharepoint 2010. Server 2008 R2 also flat out refuses to work in such an environment.

comment Do I need to create reverse zone files for my domains?
@Ted For example, checking for a reverse DNS on an email origin is one of the first anti-spam checks that's done. Not an issue if you're not running a mail server.

comment What is the disadvantage to cascading multiple switches?
@Warner, that $120/run - does that scale linearly for multiple ports to/from the same location? I would have expected x for the first run and then maybe x*1.3 for subsequent runs. ($120/port sounds on on the pricy side, but not ludicras)
