Exchange 2013 cu6 issues being tracked

I don’t know how much this impacts standalone Exchange 2013, but

hybrid/mixed installs with Exchange 2007 appear to be having issues.

Issue Reported: Ryan reported on my blog that they are facing an issue

Broadcom nics again

Poor network performance on virtual machines on a Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V host if VMQ is enabled:

You’d think by now we would have solved these issues with Broadcom nics….. but obviously we still have not.


So when does Click2run update?

From the I did not know this about click2run…. courtesy of Diane Poremsky (1), she indicated that Click 2 run inserts tasks into your computer.  These tasks will make the system check to see if it’s up to date.   Typically one runs at 3 a.m another checks upon logon.  So if you run your computer 24/7 click to run will attempt to update at least once at day.

We’re heading into the 4th Tuesday

With no hint of a re-release of the kernel updates that caused the bsod’s.

On the one hand it’s good to only release it when it’s ready, on the other hand, it’s a bit concerning that it’s talking this long to come out with a rereleased version.

Sad to see that and read that.

Blog migration status

Got all the blog content exported out to xml.  Images are still a mess and I need to finish up the redirects.

Sorry about all the mess.

Western Digital and the firmware problem

A few months ago I bought a Western Digital Mycloud for home use as it worked better when a Mac Book was in the mix.  Well it did until the latest firmware update to the MyCloud.  In a sign that patching doesn’t go well in any platform, the latest firmware makes a nice happy MyBook go to a draggingly slow thing that you could watch paint dry faster than it copies files across (along with general slowness in access.

Still converting blogs

and only about 1/2 way through the process…..

(have I said migration sucks?)

Images are still a disaster.

Redirects not in place.

Pardon the disaster zone while I still get everyone off of Community Server and onto WordPress.

To all of the bloggers still in transition, my deepest apologies, we’re doing the best we can.  Holler if you need anything.

Sitting in the Las Vegas airport

And attempting to work on migrating C through Z of the blog content and I gotta say the one drawback of the surface device is the lack of a static work area.  A traditional laptop has a more firm keyboard that one can balance on your laptop, a surface device is much more unstable.


I’m migrating the site to wordpress and man have I blogged a lot and thus the migration is taking a lot longer.  Bear with me as I get it moved across.

Will be back soon, watch this space.
