comment Best way to test new HDD's for a cheap storage server
Agreed with this - you're building an array. If a drive fails when you start putting data on, then it doesn't matter, you replace it and the array self-heals. Testing the drives for problems before using them is not going to give you a proper idea of whether they will fail in real life - real life ain't like tests!

comment BitLocker Setup requires the drive file system to be NTFS
Even with the 100MB system partition at the start of the drive that Windows 7 creates this is still an issue? @riscie

comment Outlook Cannot Establish Connection To Exchange while using Citrix VPN
Does the Connection Status window of Outlook (accessible by CTRL+Right Clicking the Outlook icon in the systray) show any connections? If so, what? In particular, any connections under the type "Directory" - what does it say under in "Conn" column? Its possible that the Citrix VPN is breaking Kerberos trust between the client and the server.

comment How to disable multiple form submit (POST) in IIS
You would have to find a way to block more than 'x' connections from one IP address. Where x is greater than the amount of simultaneous connections typically used for a standard request with some additional buffer (or likely you'd just triple the number for safety). Likely you would need to use some sort of firewall device between end users and the SharePoint servers... flood protection is what some firewalls call it.

comment Active Directory Health Checks
Thorough, thanks! However; any chance you can elaborate on "time server test"? How do you do this manually (or in a script, say?) with minimal effort? :)

comment Why do a few of my customers lose HTTP connectivity for brief periods?
Sounds a bit like the server may be running out of free ports to be able to serve the new incoming request, or possibly that (since you've said in your answer that its virtual) that the hypervisor (hopefully its a hypervisor platform you're using) is somehow being overwhelmed with too many virtual interfaces or the like...

So the end result was that you fixed your issue? Or still some work to go? @Rachel

comment Add context menu item to children of directory
This may be a better question for the developer community at StackOverflow. I'm thinking you would have to develop a custom executable that was always included in an explorer context menu, but only showed it's menu item when the path matched what it expected (ie, the directory you care about).
