    It's a 5-year-old Dell XPS laptop that originally had Windows XP. Both copies of Win7 were purchased from Newegg, and I'm pretty sure they're both OEM licenses.

    assuming it's a dell OEM media, it wont even ask for the license key it will just read off the BIOS that it's a dell boxen and install, so find one of those and then yes, you can get a 64 bit W7.

    Oh yeah. Good news from the datacenter. One of the vesda tanks exploded and discharged in to the DC.

    For us not a lot happened as we seem to have been far enough away from it. One of the clients had a small san sitting next to it. The explosion and subsequent gas damage destroyed 12 of the 14 disks or had. They also apparently had cards dislodge from some servers and a blade needed to be reseated.

    Fun times.

    idgi I give someone full control permissions to a specific folder on a share drive and it doesn't work, they keep getting permission errors when trying to access the folder but if I change the permissions to the whole drive instead of just the subfolders they need it works. There are no conflicting deny permissions either, idgi idgi

    We had a similar situation here some time back. It came from folders being too deep on the file server but on when users map to them a little further down the tree, so when permissions are re-applied it'd stop applying them, break then never allow said user to access stuff.

    2 days of fucking about with symlinks and powershell to fix all that kkthnx

    Bah.. We just spend ~$3M (AU, so about $1.50 US) doing a 1 for 1 move from our on-prem vmware to AWS. Guess what, it runs exactly the same except there is a ton of extra lag. No cost savings (we actually think it costs a bit more because of the increased amount of network traffic).

    TL;DR, I could have used that money for a new SAN...

    our AD synchronization just blew up again, the SYSVOL share on one DC basically just went AWOL and it's not coming back after a reboot.

    i know how to fix this problem, but i haven't actually handed responsibility over to anybody when i leave work next friday and im leaving it to stew a little because we're not supposed to fuck with non critical stuff until after working hours without a wavier (emergency reboots are excepted), and i haven't gotten one yet.

    and i am not going to do overtime this close to "retirement" either, i just hope whoever they hand this shit over to knows how to drive legacy laden AD's by their pant seats because they are gonna need it, and a decent understanding of FRS, to get anywhere, especially when they spot the 2008 functional level single-label domain running FRS To sync SYSVOL, the last one is one i am especially "proud" of, it's supposedly impossible, but never let the mere concept of impossibility get in the way of a proper bodge-job!

    oh, and it's starting to drop CNAME support randomly, so you can ask the DNS server about a CNAME and get a response, then sometimes you wont get a response, despite it being viable in the DNS UI and the DNS server itself can ask itself about that CNAME just fine, while it wont answer the client.

    this is one dodgy setup, man i hope my successor is a hot-jock at this shit.
