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 Windows Server 2012 R2 Deduped 356GB to 1.32GB
@MikeAWood it de-duped totally different database backups to 0 bytes as well, which is most certainly wrong. One of the things I wanted the dedupe for is, as you've pointed out, 90% of the backups from night to night are identical.

comment ASA is not forwarding packets to egress interface
Good point. I do not keep a history of the CPU usage. It's only a 20Mbps link though, so it's unlikely to be saturating the CPU.

comment Veeam Backup Size Calculation
@serverstackqns sorry, I thought you were on some version of FastSCP v4.1.1 - I forgot that it was on the same as Veeam. Veeam Backup and Recovery has gotten much, much better in recent years, so if you can afford an upgrade I highly recommend it.

comment Is there a way to provide user-specific passwords for Wi-Fi?
@CyberJacob - no. 802.1x and WPA2-Ent have a lot of similarities and can use a lot of the same infrastructure (same RADIUS server, etc), but they are still different.

Just created a new mail profile and connected it. It's taken 25 minutes so far and content is ever so slowly dribbling in. Looks like it might be ok.

@the-wabbit I haven't tried that yet. I was planning on doing it to one of our users smaller mailboxes soon.

comment RAID 10: Does it impact performance if I have 24 small drives in Raid10 vs. 4 larger drives?
Also on that note, I've done a lot of work with large arrays of spinny disks - to get the the same performance as a single SSD takes about 12 spinny drives, and to match 4 SSD's in RAID10 is basically impossible with spinny disks

comment RAID 10: Does it impact performance if I have 24 small drives in Raid10 vs. 4 larger drives?
By filling all 24 of your bays with smaller drives, it makes adding capacity in the future very difficult and very expensive. I would probably aim for a middle ground - perhaps 12 or 18 disks in RAID10, leaving room for expansion if required?
