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.

Please don't post link-only answers. At least include the relevant portion of the linked page into the answer in case the link goes dead in the future.

comment Is dual directory integrations possible with Windows?
I am not aware of a way to do this explicity with LDAP. Active Directory can create a trust with an external Kerberos domain which could be somewhere to start. The computer can then be a member of your Active Directory domain, but authenticate from a different trust.

@BenFernandes yeah, fairly sure it is. Everything else with PS remote sessions is working fine.

comment Window Server 2008 R2 dropping 2GB of hard disk space per day
It looks like your tlogs are truncating correctly, else they would have little free space and be large. How does windirstat handle symlinks? Perhaps those lost gigs are not really lost. Very odd anyhow.

I would also check for maintenance plans inside the SQL Server to see if it's doing an index rebuild, or something that would generate a lot of log data that hasn't had time to be truncated. But then it would typically grow once, but then re-use the space after log truncation. You are taking backups that will cause the log to truncate, right?

I don't recognise that program, but any program like that needs to be run with elevated permissions, otherwise it can't dive into protected folders.

comment How To Stop Cisco ASA Spoof Attack
I don't have any suggestions for this exact issue, but normally with issues like this you have no choice but to go to your upstream provider and ask them for help. By the time it's at your device, the damage is done (in terms of flooding the link, causing packet loss, etc)

comment Any audit trail of when Windows Server 2008 Automatic Updates settings are changed?
@joeqwerty occasionally there are windows updates that get released that hose things. Not very common, but I understand why people are hesitant to just approve everything that comes along.
