I don't know about any of you out there but I have been busier than busy the last 4 or 5 months and it seems like more than normal. Are you experiencing this in your world or has it been slow for you? I know I was talking to one of our other techs who concentrates more on the networking side and...

I am sure this will have the ones it works great for and then ones that absolutely say WHAT? I know a lot of customers that like to walk by their server and go there is my data and can look...

This one has been definitely a adventure in getting up and running. In Part 1 of this I talked about what we had to do with the Teaming with HyperV. Well that wasn't the end of the adventure as I thought. I had tested the VS Servers by pinging the IP's which I would get a response from. I also...

I don't know about any of you out there if you have noticed this but on the sites I have SBS 2003 or SBS 2008 running you don't get those calls for support that much anymore? I can give you a classic example on what I am talking about. My wife's business has about 18 users and they use to...
