How the eff is it even legal?

Not that what I'm trying to do when I get my speed cut off is legal, but hey, it COULD be! Who are they to judge me?!

(this isn't really serious enough to snark, but feel free if you must)

jedi7:38am: RDP graphics issues
Anyone ever see an issue where multiple users when utilizing Remote Desktop suddenly start to get graphic errors? For example if they move an Outlook window the graphics duplicate themselves, get choppy, or sometimes form 'grid' like patterns?

I'm testing things and so far I can not duplicate it but three users have complained about the exact same symptoms. Their local desktops display fine.

jedi9:47am: Easy Question
Okay, let's say you run a small office with a couple servers -- you're the administrator but you're frequently out of the office. Let's say that three times out of the year one of the servers does something wonky and the only way to "fix" it is to let one of your employees reboot the system.

How do you deal with this from a security standpoint?

Do you give that user the admin credentials and hope for the best? Do you change the system policy to allow shutdown without login from the console? What would you suggest?

jedi1:19pm: Backup Solutions
I have a client that has about ~400gb of data to backup. I have to quote them the best backup solution possible. Multiple servers; exchange, sql, terminal server, backup, and the PDC. I have a LT04 estimate from dell (you can see it here) but am curious if this is the best solution. What are your opinions on using a couple of external 500gb hard drives and rotating them? Are there advantages/disadvantages to this? (I have my opinions but I'd like yours.)

Cost is a factor with this client but I'm hoping they'll do what is best for the business long term versus shying away and doing something cheaper yet ineffective.

jedi2:14pm: Mail Error in Outlook
Sending from Outlook I get a random error:
550 5.7.1 n2BHjD2u031448 This message does not comply with required standards.

Using webmail I can send the same test msg fine.

I'm googling and checking with some common net-help sites but figured I'd drop this here as well in case any of you have run across this.
The outgoing test msg is a normal e-mail, nothing fancy, and it only comes back with an error from time-to-time. I'm guessing its an issue with the mail host but they seem clueless so unless I can point them in the right direction this won't get resolved.

dillonpuff10:45pm: FL Inverter Board Replacement
The GF's laptop has all the signs of a bad FL Inverter Board. I'm going to take it apart and see if it's just a loose cable, but assuming it isn't then ...

a) Any local stores that might carry things like FL Inverters?

b) What's a local shop that I could take it to that will just do the work when I tell them what's needed? Geek Squad should be able to handle it, but I find their costs a little ridiculous, especially since I already know what's wrong and how to fix it ...

Thanks ahead of time.

jedi11:51am: Backup Exec 11d
Does anyone have a really good how-to/best practices on how to effectively backup an Exchange server?

I've gathered bits of info here and there and I still think I'm using outdated practices from v9x and v10x. Some of the full back ups can run for well over twelve hours.

Of course I seem to have, just moments after posting this, found a few best-practice guides right on Symantec's forums.

I work for GoJobs.com, you may have seen our website.

Here is what we are seeking advice about:

General webdesign?

spud11:20am: Quick questions for you Exchange guru's:

We have a custom alias set up in Exchange that is supposed to forward mail to another one of our internal systems, which for sake of argument, we'll call "SPARKY". Currently, any mail that is sent out from Exchange passes through another relay server which validates authenticity/credentials. (Honestly, I don't know what the hell it does, but that's not really the issue.) We'll call this system "KEY".

Recent network changes have caused KEY to no longer be able to see SPARKY, and the mail we expect to have show up at SPARKY is simply being dropped in the bit-bin. What I want to know is if there is an easy way to set up some temporary custom routing within exchange that would cause any mail going to SPARKY to avoid being sent to KEY and instead be sent directly to SPARKY.

Any ideas?

jedi3:06pm: oh my head
Okay check this.

I got a client.
They have a t1 line.
From an Adtran t1 router it goes to a 5 port switch.
From that switch it goes to a linksys router and a single PC.
From the same switch it also goes to a server that has two nics (one WAN one LAN)
The server is running ISA.

Here's the deal that has me banging my head into a wall.
They access a secure site (https) for most of their work.
From the single pc that is outside the network it works fine.
From the server or insane the LAN it does not.

I can access a ton of other secure sites fine from the server.
It takes FOREVER for the site to time out - it just seems to keep trying to connect.

I've disabled ISA, I've verified there is no firewall on the adtran, I've verified the url can be pinged, I've done trace routes, etc.

No f'n clue why this single site from inside the network won't load.

Anyone magically got a solve for this?

Any of my geekier mates on here want first crack at a Netscreen 5-GT-001 (juniper networks firewall) before I toss it up on craigslist? $350 brand new with box, unopened manuals, cables, etc.

It's pretty damned sweet check out the data sheet.

jedi11:10am: Unix Assistance
Anyone good with unix?
I've got a client that has an old unix box that keeps randomly freezing up.  They got this message before and seem to think it's a bad drive in their array.

HTFS: inode 60935 on HTFS dev HD (1/42) has bad type 0000000000000

Think this is something I can check out with a few simple commands (..such as?) and swap+clone the bad drive?

jedi8:25am: Xp 64x versus Vista Pro
If you were building up a fresh system with an Athlon 64 x2 processor would you go with Windows XP 64-bit or Vista Pro?   Is there much an advantage to utilizing the x64 capabilities of XP?  As a gamer should I be concerned about games simply not working under Vista?

Just trying to get some insight before I reload my system this evening.

jedi1:38pm: Group Policy
I got a bit of a mystery and I think I've been staring at the screen for so long that I can't see straight.

Maybe one of you out there are a GPO expert and can see what I'm doing wrong here.

I have a terminal server setup that I want users to log into and have a very restricted desktop experience. As such I've done the following.

in AD I've created a OU called Terminal Server and moved the server into that OU.

I then created a GPO called Terminal Server Policy, enabled loopback processing, configured all the stuff I want the policy to do, and then linked it to the Terminal Server OU.

I then added the Remote Operators group to security filtering.

In theory this should allow the admin to work the console and login witout policy affecting him yet when a user logs in remotely the policy would lock down the machine for them. But when I do gpresult I'm not seeing the policy being processed. The strange part is that I swear I had it working perfectly on Friday and yet now it's broken. =/

Can you see what I'm overlooking?

jedi9:32am: 2003 x64 Installation
Just curious if anyone on here has had any experience putting 64-bit versions of Server 2003 into their network.

I'm going to be putting two new 2003 x64 PowerEdge systems into an existing 2003 x32 environment.
One of the machines will be the primary server and the other is going to host data and Exchange 2007.
I'm mostly curious if anyone has encountered any major issues while transitioning to 64-bit.

I'm also curious if anyone has used NTBACKUP to simply move folders (with permissions intact) between x32 and x64.
