    Unable to Attach Virtual Disk - Server 2k12r2 Storage Spaces

    Trying to import the Pool and Disk was actually on my list of things to try. I'll give that a go today and see what happens. I really don't want to have to try and recreate all this damn data. (Once everything is settled, I'll be transferring everything to a new machine with hardware RAID...

    Unable to Attach Virtual Disk - Server 2k12r2 Storage Spaces

    Logs are actually reporting a whole lot of nothing in regards to storage, which makes it even more discouraging.. Edit: If I try to connect the virtual disk from PowerShell I get a little bit of verbiage but nothing that helps me in searches "Connect-VirtualDisk : Failed At line:1 char:1 +...

    Unable to Attach Virtual Disk - Server 2k12r2 Storage Spaces

    After a rather brutal storm here in Central Florida, I had my primary data server/media server shutdown rather ungracefully due to power loss after the UPS battery dwindled. When I got home, I powered everything up as per the usual and noticed that my storage pool virtual disk did not mount...

    Do I really need antivirus programs running?

    Reading this thread makes me feel like having a UTM at the edge of my network and AV on all my machines (including OSX), is much overkill. Anyone want to purchase a SonicWALL TZ215, it's obviously not needed if I'm smart.

    PopCon Exchange Pop Connector

    We are currently in the proposal stage of a new environment that is going from SBS 2003 to DC-RDS-App-Exchange server setup. The client needs pop-connectors for their Exchange as they are a franchised partner and need to have their emails come in from their home office. I've found multiple...

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    $500 eh, so you're valueing yourself at under $35/hr for this? Sounds like a steal, but no thanks,we got this handled.

    Email encryption is all done through a ZIXMail appliance onsite. Encryption on the fly by keywords. Really nice appliance.

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    I assure you, this is not something I, or anyone else in my office plan on taking on alone. We're looking into other consultants that could assist in the project. I was tasked with specing out hardware for the prelim quote.

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    Correct, we arebuilding a new box to replace the 2003 environment. The client has licensing for Symantec Anit-SPAM, and we have a BDR NAS onsite doing backups and sending to a data center. (Zenith InfoTech)

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    Right now the mailstore is at ~50GB so I'm not too horribly concerned with storage yet The old enviroment is running with a 200GB RAID and they have plenty of space. Unless the migration from 2003 to 2010 will make this size grow exponentially, I think the recommendation of a 600GB RAID10 will...

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    It's for a specialized medical office. Not a lot of large files going to or from. Mainly just typical documents, everything else goes through their EMR/EHR systems. I'd say the typical mailbox size is under 500MB, with a few physicians and C-Levels with 1GB+. About 25 users with iPhones...

    Exchange Environment Recommendation

    We have a client that is currently running an Exchange 2003 environment with 150+ users. They are looking to moving to Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010 environment. I'm not sure how to even approach this one in regards to specing out the server, as I've never dealt with anything this big...

    what device do i need to do this?

    A wireless bridge does exactly as it sounds. It bridges a network together. Basically the signal from your current router goes to the bridge and then passes the traffic to the network cable. Some access points allow bridging, others dont.

    2008 Std to SBS2011 migration, how?

    Okay, What I was planning on doing was creating an image of the current 2008 install. Installing SBS2011, then virtualize the 2008 image, transfer the roles, and once all roles and such were transfered, decommision the VM, remove the server. Would this work as easily as I envision it?

    Currently in my office we're running Server 2008 Std, running DNS/DHCP/File/Print roles. We want to make the move to SBS2011 but are unsure of the path we should take. Has anyone here done this migration path, or similar that could lend some hints, tips or advice? =)

They rely on email, calendar etc so they have SBS03 but he's thinking of ditching it all for Google Apps. Is this a...

    QR Code on Business Card

    I know we have quite a few professional designers on these boards, I was just wondering, if any of you have had a request for QR codes on business cards yet? I've been toying with the idea, but I'm just not sure how often they'll be used, and to be quite honest, the QR codes arent exactly the...

    Hardwire Power to Macbook.

    Look online, it seems to be a pretty common occurrence with the Magsafes. The wires pull loose from the solder points either at the brick or at the actual magsafe connector it self. I've had both happen to me twice. My Macbook is in prestine condition, and the chargers all look brand new...

    Hardwire Power to Macbook.

    Honestly, Im over buying Magsafes. It seems no matter what, they break at either the brick or at the magsafe connector. I just want to be able to buy a standard 60watt power adapter and be done with it. lol

    Hardwire Power to Macbook.

    The magsafe connector on the cord is gone. I'm hoping on soldering on a standard barrel connecter, and doing the same to the harness coming from the motherboard.

    Hardwire Power to Macbook.

    Okay I'm sure this sounds kind of weird, but I'm looking for a way to hardwire power to my Santa Rosa Macbook. I've gone through enough Magsafes to the point that I'm over spending $80 on it. I have the topcase off the Macbook and it appears that the Magsafe harness is just that a...

    Thanks for the input guys. If I was going to get one, Win7 HP and as much RAM as I could shove in it would definitely be the first thing I did. I'll also make a point to check out the ASUS and HP.
