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 Does installing DFS-N on two domain controllers provide DFS root redundancy?
(don't do this if you have a lot DCs, and only do if you're going to make all DC's namespace servers. Otherwise depending on which DC you have resolved to you may or may not see the root folder when browsing)

comment Does installing DFS-N on two domain controllers provide DFS root redundancy?
Making your DC's your namespace servers has one advantage: The namespace will become visible when browsing the root domain, e.g. \\ad.example.com will show the DFS root if they are on the DCs. Otherwise you have to go to \\ad.example.com\rootfolder. Not really a big deal at all. We don't have our DC's as namespace servers but if you only had two it wouldn't be a big deal.

comment What types of systems have to “scale up” rather than “scale out”?
@Demetri - Microsoft SQL Server is the most "high profile" product I can think of that is a typical "scale up" rather than "scale out". Scaling it out is nigh on impossible unless you meet a very specific set of criteria for merge replication.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment Why can't I setup an SSHFS share? “OSXFUSE file system is not available” error
I don't know if you're going to get an answer here, because this isn't really sysadmin related. I would try over on Super User or Ask Different. I can refund your bounty so it can be migrated if you would like.

comment Is it possible to edit the settings on a virtualized vCenter server?
@MichelZ - I had not thought of that... maybe keep the vSphere machine the earlier hardware version...

comment What is a T1 in modern terms?
They are used in APAC, but they are different; typically they are an E1 and from what I saw they were mostly used for companies that wanted a lot of analogue phone lines, not data.

comment Installing MSI Before User Logon
He also says: "The problem we are encountering is when setting logon scripts in Group Policy..." - assuming he is installing the software via a logon script. The real problem is that they are launching it before it is updated. This is an inelegant but simple way of solving this.
