    Why didn't anyone tell me about these?

    I use these at our school board on drops where theres 2 computers and only 1 line. Maybe it depends on the quality of the splitter but not once have we had any problems with them over the 5+ years we've been using them. Most of our schools have gone through renovations now though and theyre...

    renaming folders on vmfs

    Would you mind pointing me in the right direction with cold migration. What I've found online makes it look like it for moving VMs off of a SAN onto another one? I would like to keep my VMs data on the SAN where it is.

    renaming folders on vmfs

    Long ago I created some VMs in ESX, that have now turned into different servers. I've renamed them in Virtual Center so they come up correctly there, but if I browse the datastore the folders show the old server name instead of what I've renamed them to. I know this has no bearing on...

    New Mac Mini (Official Now)

    that 128mb of video ram is only when youre running with 1gb of system ram, if you put 2gb of ram in your system it will up it to 256mb of video ram. still it seems pretty overpriced, but then again its an apple. and it does have its place

    how to replace failed drive on my Dell server? (scsi raid 5)

    Just wanted to chime in with a little tid bit of info since you seem kind of nervous. Without a hotspare youre raid array can't rebuild itself when a drive fails, this means that if you pull out the wrong drive or another fails all your data is lost. If the server can take it, I would try and...

    Dell Mini 9 media card

    I picked up a mini9 the other day and even with the 16gig hard drive theres not much space for everything. I want to add an SD card or MMC so that I can get another 16-32gigs of space. Just wondering what cards people have bought for it, and if it supports SDHC cards?

    little concerned about MS RDC being to easy...

    If you're connecting to a remote PC it wouldn't supply the connecting client with a username, so it would have to be the local computer adding it in.

    little concerned about MS RDC being to easy...

    Actually having no password is more secure than having a password, nothing will work remotely if you do not have one set, so your friend must have done something else to gain access. RDC is secure as you want it to be, I don't want to say everyone, but it is used A LOT in enterprise because it...

    Wireless VLAN - Not sure?

    Or instead of a managed switch, you could just run all your wireless access points back to an unmanged switch that doesn't connect to your internal network, and then have an uplink to a box or router that can segregate the traffic. That way your wireless data is seperate and you dont need to...

    Well its supposedly does take the opteron 185, but alas Ill just have to do with the 180. I dont really know if my next computer will be a shuttle again, although we'll see in a year or two.

    Switch recommendations.

    Depends where in your network its going. If its a Core, Access, Distribution switch it will make a difference. Im guessing its an access switch in which case I would save youre money and just go with a 2950-48. I cant see you needing any layer 3 stuff which is the only compelling reason I...

    HD playback with 3850

    Now that the AGP 3850 is available, I have an older shuttle, SN95G5 with an AMD 3000+ 939. I think its 1.83ghz and a single core. Im just wondering since most of the codec processing is offloaded from the CPU to the videocard would this setup be able to handle HD content and blu-ray dvds?/
