    Surveillance camera with 30ft cord

    Surveillance Camera? That logitech is a web cam, not a surveillance cam. . . . And USB is only good for 15 feet without a powered repeater. Find a POE network camera, monoprice should have some for a decent price.

    Cloud computing for large entities such as the army, benefits, risks and concerns.

    I didn't read the entire thread, but just something to keep in mind. Any Gov cloud functions must be put into a FedRAMP compliant facility, of which I believe AWS has two regions that are FedRAMP compliant.

    VirtualBox - Enabling encryption allocates all dynamic storage

    Sounds right. Encryption is a block level task most of the time, so its going to scan/encrypt all blocks on the entire disk. When that block is encrypted, the disk is expanded.

    Mixing Office Apps

    You "can" mix click to run and licensed installs, its a pain in the butt and i believe you need a KMS server to do it. Good it, you will find an answer, but its not fun to get working.

    DHCP Help

    Are there any IP phones on your network in this default dhcp range? If so the easiest way to get stuff off that scope would be to create a native voice vlan on your switches and reboot the phones.

    Finally! Dept of Homeland Security Issues DRONE Warning

    Most DJI's are not FPV. Most are made for photography or stable flight, not fpv flying. I have seen a lot of DJI's that connect to ipads or phones over a wifi connection for the video stream while the controller uses a normal 2.4 ghz radio. No my Vortex FPV drone uses totally different tech...

    Server 08 on Dell R710

    Raid 0 not recommended, but to each his own. When you choose what disk to install to, does it say "Unallocated" or is there an existing partition, or both?

    Any good AD software?

    Why not just migrate everything off the old domain? I have used Binary tree in the past for AD migrations, its a beast to setup but works well if you have the skills.

    New mail server or Outlook?

    If you have office 365, create a shared mailbox. Then give the users that need access "Full Access and Send as" permissions. It will show up in their outlook as an additional mailbox, and when one user makes a change it is reflected to other users.

    Scalable management of non-default SNMP for 10-100k devices?

    The auto-configuration IP address and its uses...?

    HA, i just went through this yesterday. If you set a static IP in modern OS's it will check the network for duplicates, if it finds one it sets it to the 169 address unless DHCP scope is available. Choose a different static IP, the one you chose is already in use.
