    Now I'm getting calls from users about literally everything being broke, folder redirection is broke which is probably for the best because if it was working people would realise all of their shit is gone. DNS server is gone, there's a new one but it's on a new IP address which wasn't updated in anything. How are people so fucking bad at this
    Ok there has to be more to it than that.. You dont just delete an RODC because its stopped working..

    Today in our 'new' office365 hybrid install we have discovered there are a number of people that have their mailbox both on-prem AND in 365.. According to Microsoft this is not supposed to be possible. We literally have the best setup ever. (So glad I didn't do it)

The Windows 10 project progressed to about 50 desktops before they found out a bunch of stuff didn't work..

    Didn't really miss any of this. Would be nice to have some working systems..

    Holy fuck do you have 0 budget or just no planning there?

    All of this going no where reportedly cost about AU$2M.. So there was budget.
    I think you'll find that's the managerial golfing fund.

    Been doing some research.. Its possible with a hybrid 2010/365 environment because 2010 is dumb/doesnt expect 365 to be a thing. Exchange 2013 and 2016 "cant" do it.. 2010 can if you follow some quite specific timing.

    any bets on that surviving a upgrade from 2010 to 2016?

    because, assuming you dont fuck with it, i'd wager it does.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    I'm going to look into it this morning as part of the clean up operation but I have a bad feeling that not only did they not back up the old server vhd files but actually reinstalled windows server IN the old vhds thus completely scrubbing any chance of recovering data

    AFAIK MS doesn't really recommend them but I'm yet to hear of one that failed catastrophically

    Netcat and ssh may or may not have, in the long ago past before we had fancy things like clouds and SSL VPNs, hobble together some interesting solutions for things like SSL VPNs.

    I'm not fucking with anything.. We have a half finished 2016 upgrade that has stopped mid way through.. I would draw a diagram of our current exchange environment, but I haven't worked it all out yet since getting back from break.

    I sat down with one of the network guys on Tuesday to try and work out the mail flow and we both came to the conclusion there had to be some sort of magic involved.

    see, this is why i dont work in IT anymore and have instead decided to pursue a career as a Electronics Engineer.

    it's still a enormous mindfuck to figure out, but the magical factors are much reduced.

    You are absolutely delusional if you think the magical factors are much reduced in electrical engineering compared to IT. Hell, every profession has a disturbing amount of magic/voodoo factors once you do it for long enough. Even mine, and I'm working in medicine, and if that's not unsettling, idk what is

    I ditched hardware because the fuckup/fix cycle is much faster and cheaper.

    Has OS X stability gone to shit for anyone else recently? Every 2-3 days now for the last month or two I've had entire groups of apps (usually Chrome, IntellIJ and Evernote - just what you want to crash at random) completely lock up and have to be force killed.
