I'm the Network Administrator for a community mental health center in Kansas. In our small I.T. department (3 staff + manager), I'm responsible for multiple areas including Active Directory, DB Administration, Exchange Administration, networking, web development and desktop application development. In addition, I just like to dabble in whatever I can get my hands on.

Great point. That's probably the real answer.

So, that would make the Linux firewall the default gateway, but is there also a way to advertise the rest of the /48 towards the Cisco router? If not, I have the same problem - redirects.

comment Dell VRTX - slow cluster shared storage
I have been following your Dell thread, and this unfortunately is the answer. The process went fine, I did not need to delete the VD's, just downgrade / upgrade the CMC firmware. With the single SPERC8, write caching is enabled and performance is greatly improved.

comment Dell VRTX - slow cluster shared storage
According to Dell Support, the dual fault-tolerant configuration does not support write caching. Only the single controller configuration supports caching. Disappointing, for sure. I am following @Erik and his Dell forum threads for workarounds / updates.

It would appear that write-through is the only method supported. I attempted to create an additional virtual disk and the only choice it gave me was write-through.

@Chopper3 - Well, not really. I tried running a few different disk benchmark programs on the blades themselves, but couldn't figure out how to get them to benchmark a volume mounted as a directory, and their write tests were destructive. I bet I could run one of them on a VM though, with a new VHD. I'll try that.

comment IIS 7.5 Windows Authentication not working (sometimes)
Thank you very much, you pointed me in the right direction. I didn't know about netdiag, and it was very helpful. It pointed out that one of my DCs did not have its time service configured correctly, and that we still have some old WINS settings around. But what I think was the main cause was DNS still had _ldap service entries for the demoted DC. Once I cleaned them all out IIS started working correctly. Thanks!
