    Easiest Software To Edit PDF With Text and Images

    Someone asked me the best way to edit a pdf and given who this person is, I'm looking for a easy solution vs best. This person gets building plans/layouts emailed to him as a pdf file and needs to mark them up for his installers. He wants to notate where equipment should go etc. So, he would be...

    Cisco SG300 Help Needed - Broadcast Storm Issue?

    Thanks for the response. So, are you sure that it just does not have the capability? I did a chat with support and the person didn't really seem to provide any direction as far as looking for that kind of info. He didn't say it wasn't possible though. You know how it is dealing with tier 1...

    Cisco SG300 Help Needed - Broadcast Storm Issue?

    I have 20 Aruba Instant IAPs with a HP 2530-48G POE switch to power them. They are connected to a Cisco SG300-52 which is my main MDF switch. I have two other SG300-52 IDF switches connected to the MDF SG300. What happens is that users start complaining about wireless access problems. I am...

    Moving From SBS 2008 To Hosted Exchange

    OK, I think you guys talked me into MigrationWiz. :) One additional question, how to I copy the contents from a public shared calendar over to Office 365? They use it for scheduling where several people can add/modify the calendar and others can view it. They have color coding etc setup. What...

    Moving From SBS 2008 To Hosted Exchange

    How much work does MigrationWiz save vs copying old email to pst, creating new outlook profile, connect to office 365 account, import pst, copy pst email over to office 365 inbox? Just trying to make sure I can justify the cost. This would be for around 20 mailboxes.

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    With Hyper-v replication, can you specify a window of time that it does it's replication? Just so it won't use up a big chunk of our bandwidth during business hours.

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    I don't need instant failover. This would be a disaster recovery situation where it would take time (hours) to move people to the other office and get setup. I just have 1 SQL server running as 1 VM and a application server that uses the SQL server as another VM. I did verify that my source...

    Microsoft Office For Business - Office 365 Or Office 2016

    We currently use Office 2007 and Office 2010 on our about 20 workstations. I'm looking to move to MS office 365 for hosted exchange. I found out that as of the first of this year, Microsoft no longer support Outlook 2007 or 2010 for hosted exchange. It seems to be working just fine so far at...

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    One issue I'm running into. I'm still planning out exactly how I want to do this and I read that you are not supposed to use Hyper-V replication on a SQL server. One of my VMs is a SQL server. What would you recommend for that situation?

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    Can it replicate to a shared network folder or a mapped network drive? Any advantage of having it replicate initialy vs just shutting down the virtual machine and copying the whole virtual disk over to a network folder?

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    OK, thanks. So, is powering down the VMs and then copying them over to a network share at the same location, then copying it to a USB drive to carry to the other site the best way to get my initial copy of the VM then? Or, having the VM do a backup to a network share? If the VM is imported...

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    One is 700GB and the other is 162GB. So, I will probably need to copy them over manually. With syncing, are they the exact same virtual machine? Is their computer name the same? Just wondering how that would work as far as having two computers on the network named the same thing. Syncing might...

    HyperV - Copy Virtual Machines

    I am looking to make copies of two production virtual machines and then take them to a offsite location to run on a HyperV server at that location that will be used for disaster recovery purposes. The plan is to then use backups/restore to keep the data on the offsite DR HyperV server up to...

    Which HDDs For Dell Poweredge R710 Gen II

    I am looking to get a Dell Poweredge R710 Gen II to use as a Hyperv server. I see that I can get a version with 3.5" drives or 2.5" drives. The 2.5" version seems to be more readily available. I'm just not sure about the storage options with 2.5" drives. It seems like they are more expensive...
