comment Do I still need a backup if I have a redudant storage system with rollback capabilities?
@ nsn > Of course one can also delete a backup by mistake. <-- yes but it becomes substantially more difficult when the backup is taken offline and placed in secure, offsite storage, for example.

comment MX record point to itself, possible?
@LPChip I have to agree with drookie - either you've got some edge case here that needs further qualification before someone can say anything especially helpful about it or you're over-complicating things.

comment Decomission Active Directory DC role but keep DNS service
I was confused by this too @Craig620 but I think the OP isn't actually talking about decommissioning AD but rather just an old DC. OP perhaps you can clarify your question - it currently reads like you want to decommission Your AD domain while keeping AD integrated DNS, which clearly makes no sense at all.

comment Is it possible for a Windows server to have 2 (or possibly more) network names (or aliases)?
It is the solution. The 'Windows equivalent to a DNS CNAME' is a DNS CNAME, especially so when the windows service concerned is IIS. Simply set your Windows server name to the one you need for file sharing, create your DNS alias, configure IIS to listen for that in its host headers (not strictly necessary but I like to be tidy) and continue on with your day.

comment Is SNMP still used widely as of 2015?
Sad but true. In a heterogeneous environment it's often the one way to get disparate devices talking to one another, especially if installing 'agents' of one kind or another on a device is a no-go for whatever reason.

comment email (Exchange) issues due to lack of RDNS
Joe has a point. If my business ISP shrugged when I asked about DNS I would assume they were either joking or simply didn't actually want my business. It's a lot like starting a taxi company with cabs, drivers... And no means of working out fares.
