    Blake got a reaction from TechyBen in Windows System Recovery hasn't been backing up since October   
    Was refering to the 7GB update reserved space.
     
    Others have mentioned it and it's been raised as a potential issue before. They just need to change the required HDD space from the 21GB or so to 28GB and it's a non-issue.

    Blake got a reaction from mtz_federico in WHY does drive formatting not matter across networks?   
    Because your not talking to the disk directly, your telling the other system to write X or read Y from the disk. 
     
    Http doesn't care about the OS, Neither does SMB, or NFS, or whatever your are using to setup the files share, they just care that the other system can speak the same thing.

    Completely possible. Just bridge all the Ethernet ports you want to be members of the switch. Not particularly hard.
     
    Keep in mind through that, your first power bill will jump by more then the cost of just purchasing a cheapo 8 port gigabit switch.

    Blake got a reaction from leadeater in AMD RX 590 benchmarks   
    So did I, but that was well after launch.
     
    I got a R9 290 ~3-4 months after launch when the tri-X came out and then 12 months later again and ran them in X-Fire for a while. Keep in mind that was 300AUD, probs closer to 7-800AUD at launch.
     
    the RX590 is mean to be a the same again. Greate deal if you looking at a mid range card on a budget. Are you gaming at 4k? no? it's an option. 1440p also an option, depending on the refresh rate. 1080p, there isn't really a point in going nVidia, unless there is a feature set you want. Just pick your budget and go (which ever team is closest to your budget).

    Blake reacted to mr moose in Azure Pipelines with unlimited CI/CD minutes for open source   
    The people who hate Apple, nvidia and Intel think their reasons are good too.   Does that mean you know certainly not what is happening now.  Of course it is. While there will be a percentage who hate any company for very good personal reasons, half the hate on this forum (mostly for Intel, apple and MS) are just kiddies not wanting to look bad and following the trend of biased opinions and fear responses.

    Blake got a reaction from mr moose in Azure Pipelines with unlimited CI/CD minutes for open source   
    well, easy:
    1. they are making it easier to do devops on their systems (and others), more people using their systems means larger market share.
    2. More devs that only know or are primarily .net/azure developers mean businesses/enterprise are more likely to push for MS solutions.
    3. Most businesses are not open source, therefore they make their money in the closed source space.
     
    It's not rocket surgery, they did this back in the 90's and 00's, there is a reason most businesses run off .net internally. Not saying there isn't a large chunk of business not running off the ms platform, but a significant proportion of SME are running of MS' platform.
     
    The issue that you, (and others) take is that in the 90's they then tried to use this position of power to stop competition from entering the market.

    Blake got a reaction from Psittac in Caching Proxy   
    WSUS will do proactive caching of updates. but caching is really the wrong word. I'd describe it as a patch distribution server.
     
    Caching works by saving a local copy of files as they are requested, then when subsequent requests for the files are processed it serves the local copy.
     
    I'd suggest looking into Dynamic DNS and keeping your quicker residential setup (depending on what your wanting to setup - i.e. exchange would be a no go, but most other things would work fine).

    Blake got a reaction from Mikensan in Unable to connect to hyper v hosts through hyper v manger   
    You need to setup trusted hosts, among other things. Unless your using a domain, setting up a stand alone hyper-v Server is a bitch.
     
    see:
    https://serverfault.com/questions/852144/how-do-i-remotely-manage-hyper-v-2016-standalone-via-windows-10
     
    There used to be a script that you ran on the client and the host that did everything for you, but that was for 2012, not r2 or 2016

    Blake got a reaction from scottyseng in Ubiquiti Security Gateway PRO   
    9 times out of 10 when someone says the [insert network equipment] is overloaded it just means that it's not able to keep up with line speed. 
     
    If you load snort on your edge router, or have a hole bunch of VPN's or Run a bunch of processes that can't be offloaded (to dedicated hardware), unless your dropping $0,000's on your router the processor wont be able to keep up with the line speed.
     
    If on the other hand, your router is not doing any fancy routing, (i.e. it's doing RIPv1 or static routing), it'll likely match lines speeds.

    Blake got a reaction from Mikensan in Can't access \\"PC Name", but can access \\"Lan IP"?   
    It's DNS.
     
    few things:
    1. Run an "ipconfig /flushdns" to flush out old or stale DNS entires
    2. Run "ipconfig /all" to view the configured DNS servers.
    3. Nslookup doesn't need a -verify parameter.
    4. Run "resolve-dnsname DESKTOP-8Q0UO6R" in powershell and lets see the results.

     
    5. Might want to consider re-naming that Desktop as it's name sucks, O and 0 in it? good luck reading that at 3am.

    Blake got a reaction from G9XFTW in Please help identify this DNS server   
    You all seem to be mis-understanding how DNS works.
     
    The ~33ms v ~25ms v ~30ms doesn't matter for DNS queries. Your client device (and your local DNS server, and the DNS servers that are then configured as forwarders), all cache this data, 3/4ms doesn't matter for internet latency for a DNS queries. If this was LAN lantency, or for a SMB transfer then you might like to look at it if it's affecting network throughput.
     
    If your talking ~1000+ ms then you're correct. until then just configure a local DNS server (normally done on your router for consumers) and let that handle it.

    I don't like ImageX as it has been flagged by Microsoft as a deprecated utility. DISM is the replacement. Powershell would be better yet, as that's where windows admining is going.
