comment How to protect Windows Server 2008 r2 from persons, which have physical access to computer?
There is no reliable, fool-proof way to secure a computer running any OS unless you can guarantee the physical security of the computer. Best practices for securing a server begin and end with controlling physical access. You might as well ask what the best practices are for not getting mauled to death by a bear after you've already kicked it hard in the groin then stuck your head between its jaws after smothering yourself in honey.

comment Discover webserver on a network
It would look like nmap, what with nmap being available on Windows and all.

comment Connecting AD to multiple networks. Use firewall rule or dual NIC?
I can't imagine any scenario where trying to multi-home a DC is likely to result in less pain than a hoof in the gentlemen's vegetables. At least the latter pain will probably go away faster.

comment Exchange Server 2007 - Not Receving Emails
Is there something you're not telling us? There is no possible vaguely sane connection between "emails work internally but not externally" and "better scan my disks" without a long painful story inbetween (or someone so far out of their depth they need to just get in an external consultant). And define "fail" - is there an error bounce? An entry in the event log? Messages stuck in a queue?

comment Is there a limit on Microsoft Exchange 2003 connected mobile devices?
Version of Exchange, including service pack level? Are these devices connecting to the same mailboxes as current devices, or new ones? What happens when you try?

comment Why is remote desktop still not working?
how about defining "It's not having any of it"? I'm not aware of that being a recognised error message anywhere in Windows in general, let alone the client or server side of the RDP stack in particular.

clearly an end user question. How did we miss this before?

comment vSphere ESXi and assigning public IPs to VM
What do you think needs to be clarified? Remember: Nothing magical happened just because someone said virtual. A network is still a network. A route is still a route.

comment Windows Server Administration - which services are safe to run internet facing?
This is the proper answer in my opinion - there is no magic "this is a safe thing to run end of discussion" list - don't expose services unless you need to, don't leave those services unmanaged/unpatched, etc. Simple as - what operating system you're running and stuff like that doesn't even enter into the debate here.

comment Why does a DHCP server need a static IP address?
@Zoredache's comment about your DHCP server getting an address from a rogue DHCP server (or failing to get one at all) is key, I would say. You can't build a robust network stack on faulty foundations.

comment Why is sqlservr.exe Running?
SqlServer.exe is just another executable - it can be started as a service but there's nothing magical and holy about code that can run as a service that prevents it being called as a conventional app too.

comment Is it possible/practical to use a Linux server to authenticate Windows devices?
This is the route to go down rather than a "generic LDAP server" route unless you've got particular requirements that mean you're married to a specific LDAP server already.
