comment How to setup Microsoft DNS so it does not contribute to DNS amplification attacks
@MikeAWood We have two WAN's as well [with BGP] and a private cross connection between two locations. We have never had a DNS outage yet. But I'm thinking more and more that we may need to also farm our DNS to two external hosting facilities. That will give us redundancy and eliminate the issue with DNS amplification. Based on what I am seeing, it seems Microsoft DNS may be a bit limited in how it can be configured to respond based on where the client is.

@Zoredache We host our own DNS, to save money and help prevent outtages. Since GoDaddy and Network Solutions have both had a bit of downtime in the past year, I suppose if we hosted with both of them, it would be redundant. Not a bad idea...

comment Windows Sharepoint Services Login Problem
He wasn't referring to removing the password expiration, just if "Change password on next login" is checked. They are two different settings.

comment What is the default number of concurrent requests that can be processed by IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2?
According to Microsoft's documentation on these settings, the defaults only allow 12 requests to run simultaneously and 5000 to be in the queue. If that is correct, then it will not be running 5000 requests simultaneously. Here is the link in case you want to review: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee377050(v=bts.10).aspx

comment What Causes IPV6 To Be Used Instead Of IPV4?
There is nothing you can do with the prefix policy that will allow you to favor IPv4 over IPv6. You must turn off IPv6 binding and disable all teredo, 6to4, and ISATAP adapters if you want IPv4 to be used instead of IPv6.
