I actually use Hyper-V in my home install because of the better hardware support. It gets the job done for very basic setups.
The reason I avoid it in a business environment is that clustering requires a domain to start up. It makes it difficult to setup a completely virtual environment...
We have a client that has used these for years with great success. It can be tied into monitoring systems such as PRTG very easily.
I used a combination of books. Shon Harris was the main one. I think I read the book cover to cover two or three times. I also used Security Engineering by Ross Anderson. I had another book that I didn't read, but used the practice tests several times. I don't recall the name.
It sounds like you are really looking more for a listserv. For Exchange, only 2 exist that I am aware of. GFI MailEssentials contains one and Active Subscriber @ http://www.ikakura.com/. Neither of which are particularly cheap. Price is usually a good way to convince higher ups that they...
The powershell integration rocks. The console is a pile of crap though. It is like they skipped so many of the common tasks that force you to use powershell that it is just silly. Exchange 2010 looks like it will fix most of that.
You generally want your server or network room to be at a higher pressure than the rooms around it. With the scenario you have described, all the dust and bad air around this room are going to be sucked into it. You'll be turning your equipment into very expensive air filters.
We have the majority of our Exchange 2007 servers virtualized. We have 2 CAS servers, 2 Edgeservers, and 2 Hub servers in ESX with no issues. Our mailbox store is not in vmware because it already utilizes the hardware fully (dual quad core with 32GB ram). I would recommend calculating out...
Really, a degree makes your job into a career? I guess a cert will making you a freakin expert in that technology too. Face it, there are as many paper tiger degree holders as there are paper tiger cert holders. The only proof they offer is you are one step above a complete buffoon. It may...
Security Engineering 2nd Edition
First edition is available for free online. I'd recommend the 2nd edition. Very well written and very detailed. I used the first edition as part of my study materials for the CISSP. Be prepared to skip and reread...

I'm going to take the MCTS: Exchange 2007 test next week. I'll probably get the MCITP for it this year. I also plan...
The email address policies are in that same area. That is how you setup all accounts to get certain email addresses.
If email is not being delivered, try using telnet to port 25 and see what error message you receive. http://www.activexperts.com/activemail/telnet/
If that works, then it...
This is what happens to a DS3 connection with a few thousand users surfing the web. :mad:

I recommend buying the program from networksims.com. It is a pretty well made emulator with lots of practice labs to do for each level of Cisco certification. I used it and a combination of Cisco Press books and actual hardware to pass my CCNA.
It is also worth mentioning that 2008 is basically 2003 with some new add-ons. Any company that is going to pass a candidate over for having 2008 instead of 2003 is a company you wouldn't want to work for anyways.
All I have to say is thank god the company I work for has a 90 day email retention policy. Good luck getting 20GB of email in that time. We get to avoid all the headaches of having to archive huge amounts of email.
Well, if the system is setup correctly they will be logging these events and saving them somewhere that sysadmins can't access, so it would end up being obvious if a sysadmin reset a user's password and then used the account.
I'd honestly already be considering that. Do you really want to trust critical information with a company that is cutting corners with security? There is no legitimate reason for them to have disabled SSL in this fashion; either they are incompetent or cheap. Neither is something I'd be happy...
I took and passed the 70-647. I don't officially have the Enterprise Admin cert yet because I still need to go take the 70-620 Configuring Vista test. I'm hoping to do that in the next two weeks if I can find the time.
I have the 70-647 book coming in next week. I've been using Server 2008 since its release and also watched some of the train signal videos on it. I've looked at a braindump for it, but don't hold out much faith that it is accurate. I figure I could pass it with just a light brush up on trusts.
