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.

+1,000,000 (if I could). Simple, practical, and pretty much the only way to do it

How can you have any control over their computer before installing your application? That's just not possible. You can't put the controls in your application and NOT HAVE IT INSTALLED and affect the client, which is basically I believe what you're asking.

comment Locate rogue DHCP server
Interesting tool. We've got a VMWare ESXi blade centre so I can deploy it on there with little system cost, which would certainly catch this in future. Thanks. (p.s. that site's certificate is expired)

comment Locate rogue DHCP server
Hey there's another idea I hadn't thought of. This is why I love ServerFault. Nothing in traceroute as it's all all on the one switched network.

The only port open is 67 (or responding at least) :( I hadn't thought of nmap -O though! I'll give it a go

comment how to delete all files that begin with 'testcase-' on a windows server?
You forget, it's been a very long time since the command prompt was actually required for use of an OS. It's quite possible that this user has honestly never had any use for it.

comment How a registrar works?
Yes, but his question was about what to do when your NS is within your own domain, so the explanation still stands valid

Good stuff. I'll check it in a few hours (if I remember) to see if it's changed

comment MX Record updated hours ago, still bouncing mail
It could be that the old MX record is still running an MTA, but the account has been closed and thus it's bouncing the email

PFSense is certainly a SF trchnology, and the belongs-on-* tag is depreciated (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/10216)

comment Subdomain/CNAME not working?
Another option is to change 67.222.12.238 to just . - as it is now it's looking for 67.222.12.238.vilegaming.com, putting it to just . will "copy" the A record from vilegaming.com

comment Direct external domain Exchange 2003
Your question is essentially the same as this one: serverfault.com/questions/98625/… (and dozens of others on SF already) - except replace the MX details with your Exchange details

+1 - the metabase is a seperate component to IIS. I know 2k7 used it, I'm surprised that 2k10 does as well!
