I dont know about speed, but i do know from my previous xp with Veeam that it is a great product. I was never not able to do restores of exchange (vm/brick level) at my last job. It was really quick to restore individual mailbox items and deleted-on-accident contacts without issue. It also provides central backup and restore services for you entire virtual infrastucture, something WSB and Cobian cant.
Yeah I know it's good, but my issue is I can't bog down the server for 3 days again until the weekend. I'd like to resolve this sooner, but I'm kind of stuck.
Bog it down for 3 days or trying to recover it with the massive log file db?
That is word for word what I said to my boss. I don't have deciding power though
What if that massive log file gets corrupt when you go down? Then you are burned even more.
Have you measured the strain it puts on it? IF you use an enterprise backup product, will he even notice? You brought up the concerns, but you feel it is the best move. You know the environment, you know what it can handle. Your ass is on the line, even though you told mgt.
It's not my job on the line. My boss just asked me to take a look at it for a second pair of eyes and that was my conclusion. I'm not the server administrator but I've solved a few server issues so far. I'm of the opinion that getting aggressive with my employer is just burning bridges. I let them learn it themselves and cover my ass with e-mails and paperwork.
Oh, well in that case...
Pointing someone in the right direction and being responsible are two very different things
@thanksajdotcom - Really just something that is comfortable and over the ear. Being able to walk away from my desk while on the phone would be nice as I am a pacer when I talk.
I assume that wireless models actually connect to the wifi network or are they all just Bluetooth with some kind of base station/usb module.
Also, I prefer over-the-ear, which is why I like the W730. If you see an M after it, all that means is that the specific model is Microsoft certified, but the ones without it work just as well. Also, Plantronics has some awesome software you can use to help manage it, that is very nice and powerful. It's free too. aka no extra licensing or fees to get it or use it
@thanksajdotcom Yes one thing i will say is I dont use refurbs on big $20k copiers. Those are always under maintenance agreement so the toner comes with that. Only on the All in Ones or desktop printers.
I have never had a refurb cause problems other than not lasting as long or not being read(not a problem on Brother printers). the refurb'd high yield toners are 22.99 where i get them vs 87.99 OEM on amazon for one of my printers.
Guessing either the TN650 or TN750? Also, yes, the cost savings can be substantial, but I personally would say if you have a good VAR that you can get good pricing through, it costs more, but I'd still stick with OEM. This might be something that we just have different approaches on, and that's fine. If you have a managed print contract, where they provide the toners, that's great, but I worked at a place that did that and the toners broke more machines than the money was saved. Granted, they were all little HP 1066 laser printers, so not exactly expensive to replace, but still, a headache. Also, if you don't have multiple toners on-hand, and one reman'ed doesn't work, you're SOL. I've seen that happen too.
Mh, is the EdgeSwitch able to run a VPN tunnel on its own? I need to connect a "remote" office to my server room. The office is in the 3rd floor, my server room in the basement and I need to run through a "public" patch room (primary cabling junction for the building).
3rd floor "remote" office -> fiber -> public patch room -> fiber -> my Serverroom (basement) -> Office
I doubt it has the ability to configure a VPN that seems like an edge device is needed for that.
It does not. That would be the router's job.
Yeah, could have been. Probably the same software behind the scenes etc.
Moved the gaming rig to my office so the kids can play while I work.
Because you purposely want small children playing video games in the same room as you while you're trying to work? You've got that all backwards. It should be "I moved the gaming rig OUT of my office and to the bedroom, so the kids can play games while I work."
KVM with Virtmanager.
Centos latest is my preferred KVM host.
And Fedora LXDE Spin is my preferred Virt-Manager choice, I use it from inside Windows using Virtualbox.
Cause it resembles the old ESXi Philosophy with Vsphere C# client
And you can do whatever you want with it, and for free. Especially when you use virt IO drivers for network and disk, you get nearly identical bare metal speeds.
But sadly its lacking other tools to allow users to connect and use the VM, you will have to do this from inside the VM like RDP and VNC.
No provision to run more wires, that's an architect I'd have a few words with/for.
I don't think that's fair. They didn't have network cabling back when these buildings were built.
If you consider a residential house, just as fast as people started running network cables to the backs of TVs, manufactures started building in wifi adapters that make the network cable unneeded. Right now people are putting in conduit between their entertainment center and the back of their wall mounted TV for all the cables. 5 years from now we'll probably have a wireless HDMI cable that will make that obsolete.
We'll agree to disagree on that then.
That said, I do think your wireless option should work.
