comment Why is the average in perfmon different than the average calculated from the csv?
The timespan was the same for both the perfmon view and the data dump. The fact remains though that whatever the sample rate (which was 1 per 20 seconds I believe), one would think that since the same raw data exists for the csv dump and the perfmon graphs/tables, the averages ought to be same (disregarding a small rounding error).

comment Can I prevent an Active Directory account from locking out?
These aren't senior managers. These are service accounts in a testing environment. They need real passwords to simulate production functionality, but they are constantly being pounded by devs trying stuff out. The domain itself cant have a GPO without proper security because the rest of our real accounts are in there.

Yup. It seems like this is the way to go (we tried it and it worked).

I appreciate the suggestion to move to Server Fault. Your link, however, is for computer and domain objects, not users. Further, Creating a GPO for the user with its own lockout rules is an option, but I am looking for a way to do this on individual accounts, effectively overriding a GPO.

comment How can I uninstall a clustered SQL instance if the cluster has been destroyed?
I'm using SQL 2008 Standard. I didn't care about the DB, and ended up reinstalling the OS (which is VMWare consequently since this is just a dev environment). I still wouldn't mind knowing how this rebuild works.

comment Cant send to MSMQ with 2 DNS names
Yup, just got off the phone with Microsoft.... This is a limitation of MSMQ. You can not receive on queues with aliased DNS names. You can SEND to queues with an aliased DNS name provided you use two registry keys, OptionalNames (listed below) and IgnoreOSNameValidation. to implement the IgnoreOSNameValidation key, use this article: support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;899611 Back to virtual ip's for us, or we might keep the virtual name for the sending connection strings (with the reg settings) and use .\ for the receiving servername...that works.
