    DNS Servers

    Hi All - We currently have three DNS servers here. Two internal (primary and secondary) and one external. We have started thinking about moving external DNS off to a hosted service...something like DNSMadeEasy. Good idea, bad idea? Why/why not? Thanks!

    Moving from L2 to L3 with a Cisco core

    All - Our network used to be flat Layer 2 to all buildings. We are now working on doing L3 to all buildings. Problem: With L2 across the entire campus, I could have a building on VLAN 40 (10.3.x.x subnet), and also have a server directly connected to the core on VLAN 40 as well. Now...

    Powershell Help

    Hi all - I'm using this Powershell script to send me an e-mail every Monday morning about snapshots in my VM environment -- very handy! However, we use Veeam for backup and replication, and all of my VMs are replicated to an off-site ESXi host with _replica after their name. All of the VMs...

    Patch Management

    Is there any software out there that will allow me to centrally manage and PUSH updates to all of my Windows servers? I don't believe WSUS does that, correct?

    Veeam Enterprise Manager

    We already own Veeam and utilize it for backups. It's just that I've noticed they have something called Enterprise Manager that comes with their Backup and Replication product. I was curious what Enterprise Manager does.

    Veeam Enterprise Manager

    Can anyone explain to me what Veeam Enterprise Manager is used for? I can't find much info about it on Veeam's website. Seems to be just a web interface for Backup and Replication?

    Upgrade Veeam 5.0.2.230 to 6

    Just curious if anybody has upgraded from Veeam 5.0.2.230 to Veeam 6. Their documents make it seem easy and straight forward. Just wanted to see if anybody has done so and ran into any problems. Any gotchas I should be aware of? Thanks!

    QoS

    Hi All - Trying to configure QoS and am getting a little confused on some things. First, we are using Avaya as our VoIP solution. We have ProCurve switches at the edge and Cisco in our core. I think one of my main problems is I can't seem to wrap my head around DSCP. I *think* I...

    Using mysqldump

    Hi all - Not sure if this is in the right place, but.... If I am running MySQL with six databases in it, and do mysqldump -u user -ppassword --all-databases > backup.sql to backup all the databases; is it easy enough to restore a single database from that backup? Or do I have to restore...

    Syslog recommendations

    Thanks everyone. At this point, we just want a place to centralize all the logs and a place to be able to view them. I suppose down the road we may want reporting and trending capabilities.... I've checked out Kiwi prior to posting this; and I've never heard of Splunk. I guess it's...

    Syslog recommendations

    Hi all - Just looking for some recommendations for syslog servers. Open-source or paid is fine. Price isn't an issue as far as I know. Thanks!

    DNS questions -- Linux and Windows

    You are correct, simply changing your DNS will get you around this. We're using a piece of software called Netreg to do this, and unfortunately we are stuck with it for another year or so due to budget constraints. We are planning on going to a full blown NAC solution in 2012 or 2013 which...

    DNS questions -- Linux and Windows

    Hi All - I have two DNS servers. Our Linux one is used for residence halls and gives out a bogus DNS to people until they've registered. And our Windows 2003 server runs our true DNS for everyone (including residence halls once the person has registered). I'd like to setup the Linux...

    Moving away from backup to tapes

    Hi All - Is there a movement of admins moving away from backing up to tape nowadays? We had a discussion about it today at work, and it seems to make sense to me. We currently have a 250MB pipe to the Internet -- soon to be 500MB; so, bandwidth isn't an issue as much as it used to be, which...

    VM Backup

    Hi All - We have 7 Dell M610s running ESXi 4.1 and looking for a VM backup solution. Currently checking out Veeam and vRanger Pro (VizionCore). Anybody have experience with either of these products? Would love to hear the good and the bad on both.

    DHCP options for VoIP

    We have a Nortel Option 61C switch. I have found the following. But my minimal testing has failed thus far: Option 191 -- VLAN-A:240. Option 128 -- Nortel-i2004-A,10.50.0.10:4100,1,5;10.50.0.10:4100,1,5. Where option 191 is the VoIP VLAN number and option 128 is the signaling server...

    DHCP options for VoIP

    Hi all - We are slowly moving towards a larger VoIP deployment. Currently, when an IP phone goes out, we give it a static IP and have to manually enter the IP of the signaling server -- we'd like to get away from this process. We have VoIP on it's own VLAN. I think I've heard that you...

    Quick Domain Question...maybe DNS question

    Not very long. Just as of last weekend. I'm guessing I'd have to recreate the domain, all user accounts, all printers, etc...? And then set security on all the shared folders again? I guess I don't understand why using an HTTP redirect isn't working in IIS. Very confusing... Very...

    Quick Domain Question...maybe DNS question

    Quick Domain Question...maybe DNS question

    So I recently setup a domain for small non-profit company. The domain is hopecouncil.org, but they also have a website hopecouncil.org. Users can sometimes get to http://hopecouncil.org in a browser and sometimes they can't. When I do an nslookup hopecouncil.org I get the IP of the...

    Is this a decent gigabit switch for a small non-profit organization who does nothing more than web browsing and file sharing? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122058&cm_re=gigabit_switch_24_port-_-33-122-058-_-Product

    Server for Non-profit Organization

    I've also felt that the server is a little overpowered, but I'm okay with that. If thought about maybe going to UDIMMs instead of RDIMMs for the memory, or at least from 8GB to 4GB. The lab will be used as a resume work shop for people just getting out of prison and looking for jobs. They...

    Setup a sub-domain in DNS

    Difficult DNS(?) issue

    Sorry bout that. I've always called them static routes! Thanks for fixing me! So even though I've taken out the 100 70 on a server it will not take effect until I do clear xlate? What exactly is that command doing? Will it kill any connections or anything like that? Just want to...
