comment Webmail and domain. I need a solution to this problem
@Simone not shown and "useless" are two different things. Godaddy is designed for people who are not very technically competent, so I'm guessing that they choose not to show the . so as not to confuse people. They probably also figure out for themselves whether or not to add the . to the ends of records in case you don't append it yourself.

comment Is it safe to back up SQL Server data directly if using VSS?
From what I understand, you should have crash-level recovery of the databases. In that it'll be a bit better but roughly the same as if the power cord was yanked out of the server. So it's better than nothing, certainly!

comment VPN tunnels won't reconnect on sonicwall 215 after network outage
I'd add your update as an answer to your own question so that you can mark that answer as accepted. That way this question won't sit around for years in the unanswered queue.

comment How can I set up two virtual Ubuntu Web Servers and split web traffic between them based on incoming domain?
I think this is OK for this answer. The link might go dead in the future, but the function name is documented, as is the section of the document that's worth referencing. It's not one of the normal link-and-run answers we get.

comment Automate SVN UP process on multiple application servers
This is essentially how you automate syncing multiple repositories with svn sync, you add a post-commit hook to the source that sends the sync commands to the other repos (from memory. It was a long time ago).

comment Security concerns with enabling PowerShell on a production server
@mfinni yes. I sign every script I sent out to our customers, and I made Sign-Script alias that does this easily. But so many people don't.

comment How does HA / failover work?
@piotrek that is a common way. Another way would be to virtualise it and use your virtualisations high availability options.

comment How does HA / failover work?
@piotrek then you configure your HAProxy server to be highly available. But you don't do this with DNS. Yes, some people use DNS for failover, but it's far from an ideal solution. There are plenty of ways of making HAProxy highly available, most of them involving something like keepalived.

comment Auto DHCP IP Phones to a different subnet
@JoeJMCIT You can configure the native VLAN on your switchport as the phone VLAN and just plug it in, and if you're using the piggyback port then enable that port for trunking of the data VLAN. Or if your network is more complex, you might need to pre-configure your phones for 802.1q tagging on the phone configuration as well.

@blaughw don't stress over it. Feel free to edit that script it. It's hardly proprietary stuff :) I'd edit it in but I'm not sure where you'd want me to put it.

comment Bulk License Office 365 Users by OU with PowerShell
Although I don't know the syntax of the Set-MSOLUserLicense I'd suggest wrapping it in a for-each loop, e.g. Get-ADUser | %{ Set-MSOLUserLicense -UserPrincipleName $_.UserPrincipalName }

@Nils it's gigabit everywhere. I haven't seen that behaviour since, and I've done quite a few snapshot removals since then.
