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 Intermittent host and VM connectivity on ESXi standalone
Hrm. Well I wish I'd known this 6 months ago. It seemed like a good idea at the time to make the most of the physical media. The installation back to the SDHC card is almost finished, so if this gets me through this blip I will organise a time to move ESXi back to the physical drives.

Wait just re-read your comment on SD/USB and you think it's not a good option.

comment Intermittent host and VM connectivity on ESXi standalone
All the current drives are vmfs with vms living on them, so I can't reuse them, and there's no physical devices left. I could get a good fast USB drive instead if you think that's a better option?

comment Intermittent host and VM connectivity on ESXi standalone
I'll build a Dell update disc for the server and try it tonight. I've been given the OK to try a fresh ESXi install on it, which I am doing right now. vSwitch has 2 active adapters, not sure of hashing mode. Have tried changing the NICs around. I cannot do anything to repro it on demand, but it occurs regularly. Let's see if it happens after a rebuild.

comment Why would I choose Copper over SFP+ for 10GbE?
@Miles^W @skyhawk always interesting to see how our predictions come back to haunt us. I've only seen one upgrade kit (for a QNAP) that has Base-T 10GbE. Everything else is SFP+. And certainly far from standard.

comment Cannot block team viewer through TMG Server 2010
Have a look at your TMG access logs and see which rule those requests are hitting. You'll probably see it's hitting another rule, or missing your list alltogether.

comment Interconnecting a fiber optic switch with a copper switch
@pming DACs have a very limited length because of the amount of power available, combined with the attenuation of the cable. Most twinax can only go to 5m, but I have heard of cables with tighter tolerances up to 10m. But they are really meant for in-rack switching, or stacking to the next rack across, not really trunking to switches in other rooms. Plus the connectors are large and tough to get through physical conduits and trunking holes.

comment Interconnecting a fiber optic switch with a copper switch
@pming if you have the budget and want to spend it, then all well and good. However you may be over-capitalising. I've only built two 10Gb networks and they were both built for political point-scoring, and had little real-life practicality. Your budget may be better spent making substantial savings on the switching gear and buying better WiFi gear and end-use computers. Or perhaps a better internet uplink. I'm yet to see an office installation of that size that even approaches the limits of a 1Gb backbone. But hey, it's your budget.
