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 Is it bad to redirect http to https?
@codingoutloud - the alternative is that the whole thing happens over HTTP with no HTTPS at all. How is that any better?

comment How can a standard Windows user change their password from the command line?
@charleswj81 - Evan's answer is way more complete. It's a standalone PS1 script that can be called with or without parameters. It's much more readable too. Code is all about humans understanding what someone else has written, not the computer. Neither solution will be faster than the other.

comment Combining 3 physical servers into 1
With those restrictions? You can't. You need to move to an OS that is also a hypervisor to do this properly; such as Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 or ESXi, or any one of the Linux distros that has mature virtualisation (OpenStack, KVM, Xen, etc). Also a server from 2003-era probably don't have the processor ability to do virtualisation properly.

I'm not going to give you the "basic steps" because there is no such thing. This is a site for professionals and you need to have at least a basic understanding of the problem you are trying to solve.
