I am a professional geek, working in enterprise data systems. I fill the role of systems engineer, architect, developer, project manager, etc... a one-stop enterprise IT kinda guy.

I develop in .NET, MVC, and IIS on Windows platforms; on *nix I favor to develop in PHP with some Cake.

For database systems I favor MSSQL, MySQL, and I'm moving into PostgreSQL for BI/ Warehousing.

Security is near and dear to my heart; a well-designed security system puts a satisfied smile on my face.

Scalability is important to me; planning for the future is one of my greatest strengths.

Thats me! Computer geek extraordinaire!

I do have the vmware tools installed on all the systems; I will reply back when I get a maintenance window and try this.

comment Trigger event to fire when user connects to a terminal server?
What sort of effect will this have? Will it prevent login, or force the user to the active connection? Having the login prevented would be undesirable; as I said, the system is fragile and we often need to login and fix things.

Actually this seems better, if I understand properly what it does. I will try this out.

comment Can you have multiple writable, authoritative BIND DNS servers for the same zone, like AD-integrated DNS?
I think it's pretty clear now, the "like AD-integrated" pretty much sets the context of the question, and the details spell out the context further.

You are correct; I worded it poorly. I will fix that.

There seems to be some work on an LDAP back-end for BIND9. I think I will look into that.

Hmm... no DFS-like mechanism for BIND, huh? That makes me sad.
