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 Create a trigger when a mobile connects at network
@EEAA I've edited it so that it's no longer "home"ish, but the correct answer remains: 802.1x

comment Create a trigger when a mobile connects at network
I think you need to do some basic reading up on how arp works. You won't see an arp entry until you try to access the other device's IP address. So it won't tell you anything interesting. Another way is to monitor the DHCP lease table, but you have to ask how are you going to identify a phone? By MAC address? Maybe. But unless you have an incredibly comprehensive list of which ranges of addresses were used in phones that won't work. NMAP each IP address to get an idea? Phones probably don't have a signature. 802.1x? Well now maybe were getting somewhere...

comment Is it possible to copy an entire website and database without back end access to the server itself?
Wordpress core is generally pretty tight, but there are so many very poorly written plugins that open the whole thing up to SQL injection requests unfortunately.

Compromised is always with an S, even with British/American spellings.

comment Is it possible to have both A record and URL redirect at same domain ? How to?
Another thought was issuing ICMP redirects that only trigger on ICMP ECHOs but... just, no.

comment How should my hosting provider handle SQL Server transaction logs?
A hosting provider providing an SQL Server database should know all this stuff already. Whilst not quote SQL Server 101 it's pretty damn close.

comment For a typical broadband ISP, are nodes on the same subnet routed together or are they bridged?
I think part of it also depends greatly on what kind of broadband it is. Is it fiber to the premesis? PPPoE? ATM? Cable/DOCSIS?

comment Join an Apple iPod to Active Directory domain
.local is what OSX and IOS use for mDNS and Bonjour. It conflicts with any actual domain using .local as a TLD. There are workarounds but they're not pretty.

comment Browsing DFS share keeps moving up a folder
@JeffMiles - interestingly, I found a rogue server in the DFS Namespace. It didn't have have any folders allocated to it, but it was at the namespace level. That server was online, but in the process of being decommissioned and nobody knew it was a DFS server. Since removing it, the problem has gone away (or at least hasn't been observed).

comment Move DFS Namespace
@MDMarra - can you even do that? Present a share via a DFS namespace from a server that doesn't have DFS installed on it?

comment Move DFS Namespace
Not sure why this is downvoted, this is correct. Add another target to the namespace. Enable replication if required (it probably is).
